    Scores of fans have been rooting for a perverted fictional character - who is basically an all-round creep - on the new thriller series You. The actor who plays him appears to be upset by the admiration, saying that they harbour completely distorted notions of true masculinity and romance.

    American actor Penn Badgley has gone to considerable lengths to prove that he has nothing to do with his horrific character from the hit Netflix series 'You'.

    Badgley stars as the violent, murderous stalker Joe Golberg, who occasionally masturbates on the street. It seems that Netflix fans are totally OK with their anti-hero's antics and can't get enough of the former Gossip Girl star.

    The 32-year-old actor, however, wants to let everyone know that they should by no means romanticise his character. He says this will be his biggest motivation for starring in You's second season.

    Incidentally, Netflix itself will be able to track "stalkers" who watch its shows illegally. According to a recent report, a UK-based software company has developed an algorithm that will be able to identify rule breakers who illegally share passwords to their Netflix accounts.
