While he didn’t walk out onstage struttin’ like a pimp thanks to being forced to navigate a sea of chairs because the Golden Globes clearly has an anti-midget agenda – Case in point: Where was Tom Cruise last night? – here’s Peter Dinklage accepting his award for Best Supporting Actor for Game of Thrones even though he should’ve won Best Actor in All Your Fucking Faces, but I digress. The Dinklage also did a little activism last night because, true story, little people’s hearts are twice the size of humans’. Google it. Via Mediaite:

While accepting his Golden Globe award for the series Game of Thrones, actor Peter Dinklage told viewers that he’s keeping a man named Martin Henderson in his thoughts, urging those who didn’t recognize the name to “Google him.”
Henderson, for those who might be Googling him tonight, is an Englishman and a little person who recently survived an attack while celebrating his 37th birthday last October. Henderson had been standing outside the White Horse pub in Wincanton, Somers when he was grabbed and thrown into the air by a fellow patron, landing on his back. He suffered nerve damage in his spine and, as a result, may never walk again.

For the record, The Superficial does not endorse dwarf tossing, however it does endorse grabbing random strangers at Starbucks and squealing, “Ohmygod look at his little tie!” into their faces first thing in the morning. Because, seriously, look at his little tie!

    He was angry until it was explained to him that everybody was told to keep their speech short.

    So this is what Owen Wilson would look like with dark hair and a goatee. And itty-bitty legs.

      Maybe if somebody performed a lobotomy on Dinklage and beat him repeatedly in the face with an douche stick.

    I can’t help but think he puts a little saddle on her and rides her around the room.

    Any reason why Mr. Dinklage gets 1,942 photos?

    I wonder how much you realize your fondness for dehumanizing people with dwarfism contributes to shit like this. Wow, it’s just such brilliant comedy writing to mock the disabled. What a gigglefest! Really I tip my hat to you, sir, you master of wit. You turn a man being paralyzed by someone else who thinks people suffering from dwarfism are funny into a fucking joke so you can make money off the glorified apes you pander to with this website. Your comment section on any given photo is about as depressing as the comments on Youtube, so that’s something to be proud of. You aren’t even funny anymore. You seem to have realized the money is in appealing to the lowest audience with shitty jokes that seem to only be based on prejudice, sexism, and racism these days. At least have some self-respect and try for a joke that doesn’t rely on mocking what is different about people. I used to find this website funny and brave about standing up to prejudice and shitty behavior, but now it’s just another thing that panders to idiots. You’re really no better than Jersey Shore. Thanks for being part of everything shitty about society.

      I have to second this, or most of it anyway. I can get into ripping on someone for being an idiot or self-absorbed or rich for getting pissed on, but I haven’t really understood ripping on Dinklage. He’s a good actor and took the time to cite a serious concern in his speech, and Fish rips into him like Cartman on South Park did. If Dinklage was an asshole or was found beating his wife or something (like Mini Me’s actor) then whatever, but laughing at a guy with a biological defect just because they HAVE a biological defect, and for no other reason, is kind of upseting. I laughed a while back when Dinklage was walking a giant dog, since it semed like an unusual choice for a little person, but since then the cracks have been getting meaner and uncalled for. The jokes aren’t about making fun of Dinklage, they just seem to be making fun of little people. What next, guys in wheelchairs? Kids with cancer? That Hawking guy makes some funny faces…

      I just find myself skipping these Dinklage entries, but this one in particular I thought was in poor taste. I love Fish’s sense of humor, but I’d rather see him mock someone’s lack of talent or poor judgment, not someone’s dwarfism.

      Dinklage is rich and successful and that makes other men feel small, so they have to point out the obvious. Not only is it cowardly but it does affect the world in a negative way. I don’t know if I can continue reading this site. Reading the comments on almost any website makes me feel like the world is full of these people, but really it’s just the internet. But now, the regular articles here aren’t any better than the comments.

      Lighten up, Francis.

      Agreed. Though the writers on this site don’t matter much, it seems like there’s competition in the comedy world right now over who can be the least politically correct, not who can be the funniest. It’s tiresome. Ricky Gervais is a genius, and Life’s Too Short has some great laughs, but when I see the sight gags thrown in it just cheapens the show for me, and makes NO use of Ricky’s writing skill NOR Warwick’s comedic talents. And aside from just not being funny, it ACTUALLY can slow society’s progress, with the Martin Henderson story as an example. Everybody just needs to lay off the lazy prejudice gags a little and save them for Redit and shoddy sites like this.

    He and Sean Bean were the only reason to watch Game of Thrones. Though that did have a lot to do with their characters, and not just their acting.

    This is BULLSHIT. Dinklage should have won “Best Actor” hands down, he dominated Game of Thrones and carried the whole show on his tiny little shoulders.

    The only reason he didn’t get Best Actor is outright racism. Dwarf is a race, right? I mean it is in Dungeons and Dragons, so I assume that holds true.

    “Dinklage should have won “Best Actor” hands down” AGREE’D 100%
