Michael's Wikipedia Page (updated)

It was brought to my attention this morning via email from a concerned fan when she noted that there was a suspicious addition to Michael's wiki page under the 'Personal Life' segment. She wisely made the connection that due to the suspect timing of adding old unfounded false allegations under his wiki, action needed to be taken to remove it. So that's what I did this morning and I will monitor his wiki page more closely. I think I'm psychic because I just was thinking about this last week that someone would vandalize his wiki page to add gossip there that did not compliment the current accurate and informative tone of his page. The timing of this is no surprise or accident as Michael Fassbender has been nominated for awards for his work in 12 Years a Slave, and he is expected to receive his first Oscar nomination tomorrow. His Wikipedia page is a popular source for people to refer to in order to learn more about him as an actor and personality. However, when someone deliberately updates his wiki on January 14th, just yesterday, with three year old gossip that was only designed in the first place to discredit and ruin him, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to see that someone is trying to defame his character at the height of an important milestone in his career.

Below is the current information that has been under the personal life segment for over a year. If you happen to visit the wiki page and this information has been altered in any way, please let me know. His wiki is updated by me and a handful of dedicated and responsible users that have done a great job in keeping it accurate, positive, and up to date. Please help us in maintaining Michael's page by letting people like me who have editing rights know.

Personal life

Shifting between British films and American films, Fassbender resides in London where he has lived for the last 17 years, while making career-related visits to Los Angeles, California.

He speaks German, though he stated that he needed to brush up a bit on his spoken German because it was a bit rusty before filming Inglourious Basterds.[36][37] He has also expressed interest in performing in a German-language film or theatre production one day.[38] Fassbender also speaks fluent Irish. Fassbender is a Formula 1 fan, has attended several races and whilst on Top Gear he stated that he was a Michael Schumacher fan and had met him at the British Grand Prix.[39]

{updated} - personal life content removed because Wiki admin team removed it due to the information being completely irrelevant and gossipy in nature.

Thanks to you, Michael can sleep well.

LOL! I have my small role, but it's a group effort in monitoring his wiki to make sure it's accurate and in good form.

I can only imagine what things were added to his page. I'm sure if Michael knew of all that you do he would be very grateful.

I think this is one of the reasons that Papa Fassbender has a google alter. He wants to monitor what kind of news is out there and keep his son's name clear.

So between you and other fans his dad has plenty of helpers keeping Michaels name in good standing. I think it is a good idea Simone to keep an eye on this page so that things are accurate.

Thank you Martha. I try my best to do what I can. And it means a lot to me that people feel that they can come to me to bring things to my attention. I'm just glad to help out. :)

I just hope this bullshit doesn't stick on him anymore, but it seems impossible! )= Sad is that true facts are ignored by haters (or google "specialists") that insist bring on that gossipy trash again and again. I only hope that who started all this mess at first would pay.

Simone said...

Well, that's just it, once the seed has been planted, however false and malicious the lie was, it was planted deliberately out of deranged revenge, and haters and the lazy media will fan the flames when the timing is convenient. It sucks, but that's where the good fans and FF come in to help keep this shit off the radar.
