Gotham: Robin Lord Taylor responds to the comments that are homophobic on his Penguin
Gotham ended with the fifth season, but Robin Lord Taylor there was still the manner of speaking of his version of the Penguin in the television series: during the recent Dragon con in Atlanta, Georgia, actor (really homosexual) tackled the topic of homophobia sparked by the attraction of Oswald to And discover batman, the Riddler.
“I grew up in the Midwest, homophobia is not something unusual for me, I was prepared to what I was getting into with the character,” the actor explains, “The reactions online are always the most varied, and there is a mad reel of the people who say the most horrible things, people are incredible sometimes. I felt a bit of pressure, but it doesn't really matter to me what people say, I don't care about neither the positive opinions nor negative ones: I care more about those children that read these things, that are big fans of the series but they grow up with the thought that God could not tolerate homosexual people. It is this that most upsets me, and this is what we are talking about, more than dwelling on the online comments that incite only hatred, and that, in truth, are a minority group”.
Robin Lord Taylor closed his speech by spending words with honey for Cory Michael Smith (discover batman): “it is simply a wonderful person, a great actor and a human being fantastic. I have been lucky from many points of view, to all of the things he brought to this role, I don't feel that love and gratitude”.
