Tom Hiddleston's acceptance speech during the recently held 74th Golden Globe Awards had received some mixed reactions from fans. The story that Hiddleston told about his experience in South Sudan when filming his television show, The Night Manager, was ended with what seems to be self admiration for the work that he did.

Hiddleston went on stage during the event held at The Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California to accept the award for the Best Actor in a Mini-Series or TV Motion Picture for his show. The actor beat out the award's frontrunner, Courtney B. Vance, from the movie The People v. O.J. Simpson.

Right after talking about meeting members of UNICEF UK, Doctors Without Borders/ Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), and World Food Programme, and the children of South Sudan, Hiddleston then digressed and mentioned how proud he was for giving some relief and entertainment to them despite the situation.

Right after the speech, several fans then went on to Twitter to express their disappointment at the speech, with some even claiming that Hiddleston's speech was an "embodiment of white people self-centerism." Some fans claimed that the entire story he was trying to tell was merely to build up to him paying himself a compliment as opposed to talking about the real issues that are plaguing the country.

Hiddleston then posted a public apology on Facebook and admitted that his speech was inelegantly expressed, as per Hollywood Reporter. The actor then explained that he was just so nervous during his speech that his words just came out wrong.

Hiddleston then went on to say his only intention was to salute the brand men and women who were in Sudan that are working tirelessly to fix the country's problems. The actor then ending his post by apologizing once again and then mentioning that his nerves just got the better of him during his time on stage.
