To be devastated about Rolf...

So Rolf Harris joins the list of those who have been arrested as part of Operation Yewtree (I know this is old news elsewhere but I don't read the Australian press).

I am distraught. I love Rolf and have always thought that he was a genuinely sweet and kind man. In fact I have said in the past to DH (following other high profile arrests), that if it ever came out that Rolf was horrid I would be devastated. And now I am.

He maintains no wrong doing. I will be upset either way. If he is found guilty and I have been wrong all these years or if he is innocent and an old man is about to be dragged through the mud.

Anyone else feel all out of kilter on hearing this or AIBU and a silly nostalgic?

I feel the same. I was shocked when I saw the news.

YANBU. I heard about this last week at work and everybody was totally shocked.

I don't believe it. I just don't. Jim Davidson? Mr Saville? Many of the others? Yes. Rolf Harris? No.

I loved Rolf, like you Op I also thought he was genuinely sweet and kind.

Wow..this is the first I've heard of this tbh. Agree with Eliza, doesn't seem believable compared to the others.

YANBU I have always loved him especially when he did Animal Hospital. There was one episode when a gent took his dog to be put down. The owner was crying, Rolf was crying and so was I. It broke my heart. Have loved him since then.

Yanbu but IF he did these things he needs to be punished.

Brings a whole new meaning to his song "Tie me kangaroo down"

(sorry, I do like him and can hardly believe this)

Been a rumour for months. Always seemed very fake to me this man, I've heard he's not very nice in the flesh. Only rumour and hearsay mind.

Right they are both dead I think. so I really hope not those two. sad

I refuse to believe the news about Rolf til it's proved otherwise.

Latara Fri 19-Apr-13 10:58:07

Oh no. I don't want to believe it, my Mum will be devastated as she liked Rolf Harris.

I hope he isn't guilty but if he is then it's awful.

mrsjay Fri 19-Apr-13 10:58:22

I don't believe it I think he is innocent but who knows eh it is just shocking these faces appearing in the paper sad

YANBU I really hope his lovely character hasn't been a cynical ruse all these years.

FGS Many don't say that. shock

wonderingsoul Fri 19-Apr-13 11:01:19

it is sad, but i am not surprissed, iv always thought there was something about him, and never really cared for his "work" but could never really put my finger on it.

i hope he is innoceant, i think becasue so many celebritys are being found out, its hard to take, as there in the lime light, you feel liek youv been fooled, people that youv become to think are decent humans and admire.

its all very sad.

None of us know these people. We see them on tv.

LittleAbruzzenBear Fri 19-Apr-13 11:02:22

I hope it isn't true. Like others say, Savile, Davidson, no surprise there, but Rolf? However, lots of criminals are sociopaths and can appear charming when needs must.
