A little more to your title.. some people honestly believe he hates Star Trek and couldn't care less about it. In fact, some took his comments about not having a mancrush on Spock and Kirk as meaning he "absolutely hates Star Trek" and that it somehow contradicted his other comments about "having seen Star Trek before" or something. It was just sheer stupidity to no end. Everytime he says something, someone is trying to twist it into something it's not and and it's getting old quite frankly.
