In Defense of Shatner: William Shatner under attack from misleading Salon and Gizmodo stories

William Shatner has come under attack by Salon and Gizmodo claiming he’s “alt-right.” These baseless claims reference some of his Twitter activity where for months he’s been embroiled in harassment, intimidation, and threats from an overly frenzied fanbase of Outlander viewers who think Caitrionia Balfe and Sam Heughen’s on-screen romance should extend to the real world. Months of attacks and a recent run in with SJWs while trying to support Autism charities could be a large part of the ire behind some of the recent “choice language” Shatner has used. Words as foul and unforgivable as “snowflake” and “misandry” for instance.

This is a read through of a draft I’ll be posting soon at the Inquisitr in support of our brave Captain.
