The Rock recently did an interview with the UK’s Daily Star and made some comments about some of the current mindsets of people who get offended easily. The Rock gives some pretty direct takes on how he feels regarding the politically correct generation in the quotes below:
“I don’t 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.
“So many good people fought for freedom and equality – but this generation are looking for a reason to be offended.
“If you are not agreeing with them then they are offended – and that is not what so many great men and women fought for.”
On the world progressing in diversity and acceptance & how the ‘offended’ mindset still holds us back:
“We thankfully now live in a world that has progressed over the last 30 or 40 years,” said the 46-year-old beefcake.
“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.”
