This A list foreign born dual threat actor did what he was praised for doing.
The thing is though, it was still kind of shady that his PR team insisted on holding back releasing it for well over six months until he needed a positive publicity boost.
So, when he got some negative press, boom, it was out within days to change that narrative.
Benedict Cumberbatch saves defenceless Deliveroo cyclist from brutal assault by gang of four muggers
SHERLOCK star Benedict Cumberbatch fought off a gang of four muggers as they beat up a defenceless Deliveroo cyclist.
The actor, 41, leapt from an Uber car and waded in after spotting the attack near detective Sherlock Holmes’ fictional home in London’s Baker Street.
The gang fled. Uber driver Manuel Dias said: “The cyclist was lucky, Benedict’s a superhero.”
The star leapt to the rescue as the yobs punched the defenceless cyclist and smashed him over the head with a bottle.
Witnesses told how Benedict, 41, jumped from an Uber car in which he was riding with wife Sophie Hunter and sprinted into the fray, yelling: “Leave him alone.”
He dragged the four muggers off their bloodied victim. They then tried to punch Benedict, but he fended them off before they fled.- Source
