John Barrowman is a renowned actor, singer, dancer, presenter and writer who is in some genre circles best known for his portrayal of Captain Jack Harkness on the BBC’s Doctor Who and Torchwood series. The British born American television celebrity currently stars in the CW’s Arrow as Malcolm Merlyn and is also quite vocal and passionate about many causes dear to him and never seems to shy away from saying what he feels and taking a stand for what he believes to be right and just.
It is in this manner that the fan favorite actor and personality courageously posted a video to his official John Barrowman Facebook page denouncing the dastardly terror attacks in Brussels yesterday. While in Vancouver and shortly after waking, Barrowman stared in disbelief at the news of the unfolding attacks and having the only tools at his disposal, the beloved actor went to social media to let all who could hear know exactly what he thought about the terror attacks unfolding in Belgium.
Almost as if searching for the words to comprehend what he was seeing the actor said in part, “I’ve performed there and its a wonderful place and to hear the people screaming and what’s happened, the people who did this are absolute fucking cowards!”
As the shocked Barrowman continued to watch the news while recording his social media cry for justice he went on to say, “Diplomacy is the way forward. This is sick!”
After a few more moments of silence the lovable thespian continued to say, “Stay strong, stay safe,” and then specifically addressed both his fans and the people of Belgium, “To all of those who follow from Brussels and around Belgium, our thoughts are with you and I am going to keep a breast of what’s happening. It is very very sad.”
The actor then looked directly into his camera and sent a message directly to the savages responsible for the deadly attacks in Brussels, “But remember, the people who did this, you’re cowards!”
Bravo Mr. Barrowman! Thank you for letting your voice be heard and Sci Fi Pulse stands with you and the people of Brussels and Belgium in unified opposition to these inhumane acts of terror. So Say We All!!!
