When it comes to media, British people will be shown as being upper class, prudish, snobbish, having big, bad or yellow teeth or having proper manners.
In American films, the villains always seem to strangely possess an English accent, even if the movie's content is NOWHERE even near the UK. An example would be the Imperial Officers in Star Wars. But they never show good guys with English accents, like C3PO from Star Wars, Obi Wan Kenobi.
Also people frmo England will be shown as people with upper class accents, such as Hugh Grant, and also being gay, especially British men.
But no one stops and thinks about some of the people in our world, like David Beckham, who's a soccer player, musicians like The Beatles, actresses like Maggie Smith,etc.
Also British characters in movies end up being butlers or gentlemen
Disney movies are somewhat notorious for the 'Bad Brit' stereotype. The villains almost always end up possessing an English accent, and sometimes it's not Disney movies. Here are some examples:
- Judge Frollo(Hunchback of Notre Dame): voiced by Tony Jay, a white British actor, even though the character is supposed to be French
- Professor Ratigan(The Great Mouse Detective)
- Maleficent(Sleeping Beauty)
- Lady Tremaine(Cinderella)
- Scar(The Lion King). Supposed to take place in Africa, but the character is voiced by Jeremy Irons, a white British actor
- Mrs. Trunchbull(Matilda)
- Count Olaf(A Series of Unfortunate Events)
