#Jacketgate – When doves cry

How can you just leave me standing?
Alone in a world that’s so cold…

Why do we scream at each other
This is what it sounds like
When doves cry

I did actually click and listen to the #Jacketgate video when I first saw it. My initial reactions:

a) appeared to be a normal workplace exchange
b) who cares
c) wow – the media is really hyping this up!

Since then it’s received more hype, and I’ve even seen people abusing Sherlock and calling her a bully on various social media.

Unfortunately it’s all very predictable. Doves would cry.

Tim Blair said it well here:

Naturally, this being 2017, some have accused Sherlock of workplace bullying and various other safe-space violations. This is absurd.

Sarah Thomas says it well also:

At the end of the day, it was a perfectly reasonable exchange. Amber Sherlock was right to suggest that the three white outfits on screen wouldn’t work, as she would know as an experienced professional.

Of course, both work for media companies that hyped the story to begin with.
