When it comes to James Bond, the rumor mill is aplenty. Many are wondering – who will be the next 007? Who can possibly fit into the shows that has been filled by so many incredible actors.
However, Daniel Craig has seemingly gotten into a very weird backlash in the past as fans did hashtags like Blond Bond, and these were meant to attack Daniel Craig directly as he is blond which did not please the fans.
As reported by Fandom Wire – The reason for this was because a lot of Bond fans had some kind of issue with Daniel Craig upon his entrance into the Bond world.
Craig opened up about it when speaking with Yahoo Entertainment. He said: “Of course, I was bothered by it. But there was nothing I could do. It’s like [the saying goes], ‘Control the things that you can control.’ All I could do was make a good movie, or attempt to make a good movie and say, ‘There you go.’ And if they didn’t like it, then I don’t know, that’s all I had to give.”
The owner of the franchise Barbara Broccoli also was bothered by all of the hate. She admitted that the hate bothered her but she did not lose hope or belief in Craig. She said: “It was so ridiculous. It was absurd. But you know, it was the beginning of the whole internet bonanza. I mean, the fact that they were complaining that he was blond stupefied me because Roger Moore was blond.”
