Kirsters Baish| The U.K.’s Daily Star published an interview on Friday with actor Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, in which the actor talked down on the “snowflake” culture that our society has become to accustomed to.
The Daily Star reported:
He “laid the smackdown” on PC softies in an exclusive chat with the Daily Star.
While The People’s Champion applauds the fact nowadays anyone can “be who they want to be” the musclebound man-mountain raged at the constant offence snowflakes take from everything.
The legendary wrestler turned actor says it does a disservice to war heroes who fought for freedom of speech.
F1 banned the much-loved Grid Girls over sexism fears, uni leaders banned clapping in case it upset soft students and there was outcry when equality fools demanded a re-branding of the tasty treats to “Gingerbread People”.
As a result, former wrestler The Rock, who made £92million from his blockbuster movies last year, isn’t happy.
“So many good people fought for freedom and equality – but this generation are looking for a reason to be offended,” Johnson said. “If you are not agreeing with them then they are offended – and that is not what so many great men and women fought for.”
He explained that while he might not agree with everything someone else thinks, and he might not agree with who they voted for, but he will always support their “right say or believe it,” according to the report.
“That’s democracy,” he stated.
“We thankfully now live in a world that has progressed over the last 30 or 40 years,” the 46-year-old continued. “People can be who they want, be with who they want, and live how they want.”
“That can only be a good thing – but generation snowflake or, whatever you want to call them, are actually putting us backwards.”
The Daily Caller reports:
Johnson is no stranger to political fights. He has been targeted by animal rights activists over offending photos taken during a vacation, yet has come out for the NFL kneeling protests that are the bane of many conservatives.
