Hunting the real aggressors behind 'My stuffed reindeer'

My stuffed reindeer is the fashion series. It was introduced into the Netflix catalog with hardly any promotion and, two weeks later, it is already the world leader on the platform. And, as part of the incentive is that the creator and protagonist Richard Gadd draws on his own real experiences to tell a very disturbing story, there are now viewers on the hunt for the people who sexually harassed and assaulted him. .

“The police have been informed and are investigating all defamatory, abusive and threatening posts against me,” said actor, director and screenwriter Sean Foley, 59, upon seeing that he was the target of the most toxic fans of My Reindeer. teddy. The reason? There are those who, after researching on the internet, suspect that Foley could be the inspiration for the character of Darrien O'Connor played by Tom Goodman-Hill in fiction.

Let us remember that this character, in the series, uses his position in the entertainment and television industry to impress Donny, the character that Gadd plays and who is inspired by himself. Thus, after establishing a friendship and becoming his mentor, she begins to use the encounters to drug him and sexually abuse him while he is unconscious, which destroys his self-esteem and his humanity.

The statements come after Gadd, after seeing the behavior of a sector of the audience, asked viewers to stop investigating the real identities of her attackers: both the character called Martha Scott and played by Jessica Dunning, who is inspired by the woman who harassed him for four years, as well as the man who abused him.

He took to social media to lament that people he has worked with and admired, like Foley, are being unfairly accused of crimes they did not commit. “Please do not speculate about who the real people might be. “This is not the goal of the series,” she asked directly to her followers.

And, apart from the search to see who the real Darrien is, there are also forums that share private information about the woman who inspires Martha Scott and who, as both Gadd and Gunning explain in interviews, is a person with problems. mental health.
