It’s a disease in all our culture. In my line of work, sure. But in general, people prejudge people based on f*cking anything really, and it’s very sad. Look at the reaction when Rob got casted as Batman. It was like 90 percent negative.

Due to the negativity the characters who play roles such as James Bond, Jamie Dornan seems bit careful about getting cast for the movie. He expressed in one interview:
Daniel Craig got cast as James Bond-I mean that was 100 percent negative. It was vile what was written.
