Lol at everyone involved whether they agreed with it or not. Feels great up here on my high horse.

How is the original article still up though? It's been ages

Muppet was only the messenger... the actual body of the post was an elaborate troll cooked up by ShockingAlberto and others as only revealed by Alberto in 2017.

Fair play, they played the entire internet like damn fiddles.
Yeah I don't believe him. And why would anyone?

OT this is just another example of why people shouldn't instantly get outraged.

Man those people saying the rock is piece of shit cause they disagree with a false statement,ouch. Taking every single thing as face value, hope they learn their lesson . One of the reasons why I browse here to get some good laughs.

And what of all those who proclaimed him to be speaking the truth?

Don't they also tarnish his reputation by believing it.

He was a piece of shit prior to these statements though. Like he’s done worse than this, so it’s not like he’s suddenly off the hook.

Can go both ways, but I'll say the ones calling for his head, labeling him " piece of shit" and ignoring all the good deeds his done, base on 1 statements that was proven false, are far embarrassing IMO. Either way doesn't really matter since he came out and clear the air.

I mean to be fair... it's not like this was the first thing that ever came up though.

Dude publicly admitted to making the active choice to not vote in 2016 for example

Learned their lesson? It's clear you haven't been in the Randy Pitchford thread.

Lol no I have not, don't really go into video game thread unless it's relating to actual video game information like release date gameplay etc if you don't mind can you sum it up for me, I'm guessing is has to do with jumping to conclusion ASAP

I don’t really get the “this is embarrassing” angle. The quote is still shitty in the abstract. It isn’t like there was a misinterpretation of the shittiness of the reported quote.

It's good to hear he didn't say this. All the arguments in this thread are still valid for people who do say these things of whom there are too many.

Tbh the thread basically is as long as it is cause a lot of people came out of the woodwork to say how right he was for saying it.


But funny only those who believed it and disagreed are being shit on now.

You should check the comments on his FB post in regards to this. So many in there are telling him just how much they wished he did actually say that.

I hate Trump more than I hate bin Laden, but it would be very difficult to get myself to care that The Rock, of all people, didn’t vote.

This ain't true. There are around 20 people who agreed with those comments in the first 10 pages of this thread, and them niggas didn't even elaborate aside from like 2 of them. This thread ain't long because you had dozens of people coming out of the woodwork to hold some big discussion. Most of the posts in this thread are just peeps shitting on The Rock. Not even 10% of the posters are agreeing with the dude if we look at the first 10 pages.

I was thinking it was prob taped before the Oscar fiasco, or does he support hart?

Goddammit I still have some outrage left from this morning and was hoping to let some out here.
Can anyone redirect me to another thread with outrage in it? If I don’t let out this remaining outrage I won’t be able to sleep tonight.
