London news 'I can't stand Paddington Bear and he's not a true Londoner' Uk news
MetiNews.Com - Paddington Bear's lazy Londoner schtick has been tolerated for far too long, the inconvenient truth is he's a cynical bear and we need to dissociate ourselves from him
Breaking News ! I despise Paddington Bear. I wasn't sure if that was too strong a way to start an article about a fictional bear, but on reflection, I think it's fair - I really can't abide the bear. I'm painfully aware this isn't a popular battle to fight, especially considering the success of his last two films and thousands of Twitter followers, but in my opinion we need to discuss the bear's conduct. Because dear reader, while Paddington is routinely voted as one of the best things our city has produced, the truth is he's nothing but a cynical bore.

His Twitter is excruciating If we're going to dissect Paddington's irritating public persona, and we are, it's best we start with his Twitter which is a disgrace. Paddington's tweets are a nauseating mix 'live, love, laugh' and 'kindness is magic' energy that surely grates on anyone with a brain. The bear, or the people behind the bear, subjects his 178,000 followers (all of whom I view as complicit in his crimes) with an endless stream of half-arsed musings on the world - all surface level, no real depth or meaning.
. I know, I'm annoyed I had to read it too. But its not just the shamelessly brazen way he promotes his brand on Twitter, it's also that he uses his account to permanently remind his followers he's more wholesome than them. Only last month he was bragging that he'd 'learn how to say 'please' and 'thank you' in 11 different languages.' Well done Paddington, what a shining example you are to us all... You're a caricature of bland, soppy kindness for people who can't face the real world and you've been making money out of these saps for too long.
