Abuse of the First Amendment
I can’t take on the world. However, a lot of the comments in websites and blog houses about Actor/Artist Lance Henriksen are very inappropriate and untrue.
The majority of the comments attack Lance not only as a human being but also as an actor down to his choice of movies or film roles. Some comments attack his physical appearance. Well, let see how you look when you reach 66 years old. How can you attack a person that you do not know nor met?
Things are said such as Lance took this role because he must have needed the money and that is all. So what, why does it matter why Lance took the movie or project? Is that your business or is that while writing your comments you were not creative enough to come up with anything else to write.
Lance believes in the roles that he chooses; however, for the amateurs there a lot things that are out of an actor’s control regarding the rest of the movie or film and supporting cast including the final project.
The sad thing is this is being done by highly indexed internet sites that come up in the top 5 to 10 web searches regarding Lance Henriksen. These are “Super Fans” of the Genres doing this.
The Webmasters and/or Blogmasters of these highly ranked sites have a responsibility to cut the unnecessary crap out of the comments appearing on their sites.
I thought public “character assassination” was during elections.
I do not need to list the sites. You know who you are. Why are you so cruel?
Your comments are not reviews that a person can decide whether they want to watch or buy a DVD with Lance Henriksen in it.
They are so full of “potshots” at Lance the person, that the reviews are useless as far as the movie or film.
We complain about what is said by the media and on television and printed in our newspapers then we crucify our own Genre actors via the Internet and worst than the tabloids.
Are being hypocrites okay if it is done on the Internet?

Due to the recent events surrounding the stalking of Actor Colin Farrell, in our opinion Fans, Bloggers, Blogmasters, and Webmasters must use the data obtained about the person or persons in their website responsibly. Do not allow yourselves to get caught up in the “indexing” race trying to get your site indexed 1st, 2nd, or 3rd and/or the most popular by disclosing private information or data on your sites. We are responsible for the content on our websites. Therefore, if you have the “real” address of your celebrity and/or a picture of their homes do not post them on your sites. If you have their personal home telephone or cell number do not post that information.
Do your part to protect your celebrity in the same manner you would want to be protected. Being the most popular website on the internet at the expense of subjecting a celebrity and/or any other “public” person to “stalkers” and/or other sick people that want to harm them is not worth it. And please do not post non-public private pictures of their children. If you have not been stalked you have no idea of the emotions involved in the ordeal. In addition, do not be naive. Celebrities and other “public” figures are not the most stalked group of people. We are. Yes, “Joe Blow” public. The only difference is that the “public” figure’s stalking becomes a news event.
This incident with Actor Colin Farrell is very disturbing for our staff because we have member(s) that have been stalked and eventually attacked by the stalker. So again please, we urge you Fans, Bloggers, Blogmasters, and Webmasters to join our cause to protect each other and the people that are the subjects of our websites. Please join La Femme Nikita07 and Associates in protecting the private information of those mentioned above and all people. Thank you for your cooperation from the staff of La Femme Nikita07 and Associates!!!!!!!
