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.

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 believe him but when he threw out Hart’s name in his new show I was kinD of surprises.

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

Am I too late to get outraged at something?
I have to say, you people dismissing those who have legitimate issues are really frustrating.

Getting "outraged" at a person who dismisses homophobia is not a bad thing. The Rock is saying that interview never happened, which changes things, but to mock people simply because they give a shit is childish.

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.

Can someone please explain

1. What happened?
2. Why people are Dicks for mistakenly (along with millions of others) thinking a person is bad for saying bad things instead of simply poorly informed at this moment?

Because they agree with the take, they thinking outrage culture and snowflakes exist, when the story proven wrong you see these people came out from the wood seeing the opportunity to "dunk". Newsflash motherfucker its people like you that I have problem with, that Rock deny being one of you.

1. An article circulated where The Rock made a comment about Snowflakes And Outrage Culture Are The Real Bad Guys Holding Society Back, which many people took to be about the Kevin Hart hoopla. Many people said, "Hey that's a real bad take there Dwayne" and others provided examples of The Rock having Bad Opinions In The Past as a reason why they were not surprised by his statements.This article turned out to be entirely fabricated.
2. A lot of corny people popped in to try and cite this thread as an example of the Outrage Culture Going Too Far, which is super funny since The Rock said that way of thinking was bullshit.

Daily Star is tabloid trash. Independent should have known better than to report a story from Daily Star. I appreciate The Rock's response but would feel much better if his actions reflected his words.
