Golden Globe 2017: Tom Hiddleston apologizes for controversial speech

Golden Globe 2017, Tom Hiddleston

On Sunday evening, Tom Hiddleston received his first Golden Globe Award, but it was not the award that raised eyebrows, it was the speech that Tom gave. Tom tried to bring attention to the civil war which is gripping in South Sudan. In spite of his good intention, Hiddleston was criticized on the social media by many observers who found his marks hedonistic, or maybe was just unable to convey his message correctly. 

The  35-year-old actor, Tom recalled his most recent trip to South Sudan which is world’s youngest nation. He worked with the United Nations Children’s Fund. Entertainment Weekly reports, while Tom was there he approached a group of doctors and nurses with doctors without borders who said they would binge watch The Night Manager during the previous month’s shelling. He was moved by the idea and dedicated the Golden Globe to them. In his speech he said, “the idea that we could provide some relief and entertainment for people who are fixing the world in the places where it is broken,” he said and dedicated his Golden Globe “to those out there who are doing their best.”

We couldn’t agree any more with Tom, but it seems like people did not appreciate his tone and how he conveyed the message. People on social media have also been compiling shots of the audience's reactions, and others went on to suggest that Taylor Swift may have won the breakup after all.







In response to this Tom took to his Facebook, explaining himself about Sunday evening’s speech. “I apologise that my nerves got the better of me,” Tom wrote on his Facebook.
