How much responsibility do you have for your partner’s political views?
That’s the debate currently dividing Twitter after (very) unsubstantiated rumours about actor Jodie Comer’s boyfriend began to fly around.
A litany of Twitter detectives are now alleging Comer’s boyfriend is a man called James Burke – and that he’s a Trump supporter.
Once again, the slim dossier of circumstantial evidence for this comes from voter registration data linked to that name, fan ‘reports’ and pictures of Comer and an unidentified man (who people believe is James Burke).
People are absolutely convinced that he’s a Republican.
Who actively supports Donald Trump.
Once again, this entire supposition is based on scraps of “evidence” dug up by fans which are almost certainly subject to a pretty hefty dose of confirmation bias.
Yet that hasn’t stopped fans from “cancelling” Comer and labelling her a "hypocrite" for her vocal support of progressive movements, and playing LGBTQ+ characters.
She was quickly the target of a barrage of pretty vicious attacks.
