Anonymous said: You know that Michelle Dockery still likes him, right? She just said so in an interview, how proud she is of him. Allen Leech and Jim Carter just went to his movie screening for The Guest. They apparently don't hold a grudge. Why should they? DA is just as great as it ever was. There are lots of things to be outraged about in the world, I don't think Dan Stevens is one of them. But, whatever brings joy to your life, carry on!

I don’t expect the cast to hate him, especially since they worked closely together for 3 years. Julian Fellowes though, I can understand. To be honest, I don’t completely hate Dan either. I’ll admit, The Guest looks pretty interesting! It’s just that he made certain choices and decisions that didn’t go over well with the fandom (to put it simply). Well, he’s now free to do whatever he wants, so more power to him! Oh and to clarify, this is a satirical blog; I’m not dedicating my life to hating on DS- I don’t even post frequently! But thanks I guess? Hope you’re excited as I am for Series 5! :)

I've been poking around your blog and saw that he was the exact opposite of Matthew (from your descriptions, of course). I just want to know what happened a couple years back. Thank you!

Hello there! :) To put it quite simply, Mr. Stevens decided to leave the show to pursue “bigger and better” opportunities. And by this, I mean leading roles in *groundbreaking* films such as Vamps, The Fifth Estate, and Summer in February. Ok, I’m joking with that last part- the films were panned by critics and can be considered mediocre at best… Essentially, DA stopped being fulfilling for DS, and he decided to move on from the show. That may not sound problematic, but you should have seen the way DS was acting leading up to his departure! In many of his interviews leading up to the S3 Christmas Special, DS made snide remarks about the show and its creator, Julian Fellowes who mind you, helped to put his name on the map. I mean, how could an actor who had once praised the show, do a complete 360? It baffles me… There was a bunch of speculation during this time whether or not DS would leave the show, and it appeared DS was not so sure himself; apparently DS was still in the process of making up his mind at the time of filming the Christmas special and Fellowes wanted to keep the finale open-ended. However, at the very last minute, DS decided he was done and that’s why we have the ending we have. This guy then has the AUDACITY to publish a piece right after the Christmas special explaining why he left, which ultimately makes him sound more arrogant than ever. Again, it’s not why he left, it’s about how he left. He could have taken the higher road and left gracefully like Jessica Brown Findlay, but no, he decided to do the exact opposite and open his loud mouth. DS also had a Twitter meltdown in the midst of all of this, where he attacked fans of the show who were simply voicing their opinions. I don’t know if I’m explaining this clearly, and I’m sure I’m missing some details, but that’s basically the gist of our disdain for DS!

Here are some insightful posts from other bloggers regarding the matter: (x)(x)(x)(x)

Hope that helps! (And if anyone has anything else to add, feel free to do so!) :)

Anonymous said: I'm extremely happy you've kept this page. After two years, it's easy to forget some of Dan Stevens' more unpleasant behavior. Like when he harassed/fought with former fans on Twitter. Or when he called Downton Abbey "monopolizing." How his publicist banned DA questions from interviews. Or how he asked for "more blood" to "make sure Matthew was dead." Among MD vs. DS fans, there has been asshole behavior on both sides. But out of DS & MD, only one is actually an asshole. And it's not MD.

I’m happy that there are people who still follow this blog! As a firm believer in karma, DS will surely get his comeuppance for the way he treated the cast, crew, and fans of DA. Sure, he may have a *few* critical hits along the way, but that doesn’t excuse the overall shitty behavior he’s been displaying these past few years. I think humility is an important trait an actor should have in this industry, and unlike DS, MD obviously embodies this characteristic. I think she has the potential to go very far with her career!

Anonymous said: How empty is your life that this tumblr page even exists? A page of hate devoted to an actor that left a TV show. Two years after he left. Time to up your meds, I think.

I came out to have a good time and I’m honestly feeling so attacked right now.

Remember how two out of the five Dan Stevens films were commercial and critical flops.
