    “So many good people fought for freedom and equality - but this generation are looking for a reason to be offended," he 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.”

    “We thankfully now live in a world that has progressed over the last 30 or 40 years,” the 46-year-old superstar 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.”

    Nice to see, although the hypersensitive neurotics are still controlling discourse...

    The Rock has never had much toleration for Candy Asses, which is what they called "snowflakes" back in the day.

    "The Rock doth protest too much, methinks" so, I see this cult of personality as likely a latent homo.

    I thought you conservative types hated it when celebrities got to spouting their opinions?

    Or is that only when it's opinions you disagree with?

    What?

    How did you get that from this:
    I don't see any loudly-protesting "homophobia" in that statement.

    He didn't say "vote for the democrats." It wasn't a political statement intended to influence votes or a political agenda, like global warming.

    He basically just said quit being a bunch of pussies and appreciate what you have.

    :dunno:
