To each their own, and you are welcome to your opinion. You have the right to feel offended by Colin Morgan flipping off a camera just as much as I have the right not to be offended by it.
However, I very much doubt there is any “context” to understand with regard to that photo. They are mugging it up for the camera and then Emily posted it on her own Instagram, most likely with the intent of dark, tongue-in-cheek humor. Based on the rest of the content she has on there, I don’t think it’s meant to be taken seriously at all. And, rather than being offended, I chose to see the humor in it.
And while Colin Morgan’s public persona tends to to be polite and respectful, he’s also an extremely private person that shares almost nothing of himself with the world. We know very little about who he really is, and I’m okay with that. I’ve never been under any illusions that the face he shows to the public was all there was to the man, nor that he was a particular paragon of virtue.
It’s been reported before by various co-stars of Colin’s that he has a very dry, dark wit and sense of humor (even if we rarely see it publicly). And if you look at his acting choices, there is a complexity and darkness in just about every part he’s accepted that seems to back up that assessment.
If you’ve been offended enough by this that you choose to no longer be a fan or follow his career, then so be it. He’s under no obligation to live up to anyone’s expectations but his own.
Which may, in fact, be the point of that photo.
*Gets down from soapbox*
I just feel the need to reblog this, It’s perfect, thanks!
