    The Rock slams snowflakes as 'looking for reasons to be offended'

    The Rock slams snowflakes as 'looking for reasons to be offended'

    Here is an example of the word 'snow flake' used properly .

    He "laid the smackdown" on PC softies in an exclusive chat with the Daily Star.

    While The Peopleís Champion applauds the fact nowadays anyone can ďbe who they want to beĒ 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.



    He spoke out after a flood of snowflake stories hit the headlines.


    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, isnít happy.


    He said: ďI donít have to agree with what somebody thinks, who they vote for, what they voted for, what they think, but I will back their right to say or believe it.
    ďThatís democracy.


    ďSo many good people fought for freedom and equality - but this generation are looking for a reason to be offended.

    I always liked him. He seems to be a natural entertainer.

    I loved him in the WWE! I loved the way he spoke, too until Obama came along. Now it's hard to separate the two voices. Which is humorous in a way. I shouldn't picture a slender and slight person when The Rock speaks.

    The Rock was my childhood. Not a man alive with more charisma or ability to entertain than The Rock. Greatest wrestler of all time for sure.

    It's funny, he looks a little like my younger brother, and when he was a kid he did the eyebrow lift like Rock. This was many years before The Rock even came on the scene.

    Progressivism, ideas so good, they have to be mandatory

    I was about to launch into my typical" why do people base their political opinions on those held by famous non politicians?" I know you don't do that and that is not why you posted this. But many do.
    But then I looked up some of the stuff he was apparently referring to and I get it. Not because he's famous but because that $#@! is in fact ridiculous. Banned clapping and auto racing cheerleaders ? "Gingerbread people" ? C'mon. If the gender of cookies is a worry you actually have time to deal with you have as close to a problem free life as it gets.
