It seems that the pictures of Martin Freeman’s and Amanda Abbington’s children taken on the Sherlock set in the last year are still making their rounds on tumblr.
The last time I saw them on my dash, they had over 2500 notes.
- Amanda Abbington herself has asked people not to reblog, repost or distribute those pictures. It’s invasive to her family’s privacy - please respect that.
- Reblogging those pictures is also illegal - you may not publish or distribute pictures of people’s children like this, it’s not only invasive but dangerous to them.
- For your information: these pictures aren’t “official” or anything like those baby pics actors will sometimes take for magazines. They were taken by (undoubtedly well-meaning) fans when they visited the Sherlock set - they were taken without permission - there is no reason why you would want these pictures on your blog or other people’s blog, no matter how cute or adorable they are.
Please spread the word. Please reblog this post, please send politely worded messages people who don’t know about these pictures. If the pictures can reach 2000 bloggers, why not the message that they shouldn’t be around.
