Frank Stallone, the brother of movie star Sylvester Stallone, has apologized for calling anti-gun Parkland high school student David Hogg a “p*ssy.”
“To everyone and to David Hogg especially, I want to deeply apologize for my irresponsible words,” Stallone tweeted (see below). “I would never in a million years wish or promote violence to anyone anywhere on this planet. Please accept my apology.”
Stallone issued the apology after being attacked on Twitter for blasting Hogg’s nonstop anti-Second Amendment rhetoric, which includes a call to boycott the state of Florida and for advertisers to dump the NRA and Laura Ingraham’s Fox News show.
Stallone echoed the annoyance of millions of Americans when he wrote: “This David Hogg pu*sy is getting a little big for his britches. I’m sure someone from his age group is dying to sucker punch this rich little b*tch.”
Amid heavy backlash, Stallone deleted his tweet and apologized, saying he never meant to promote violence against Hogg. “After what these kids went though I’m deeply ashamed,” he tweeted.
Predictably, liberals continued to pile on even after Frank said he was sorry, which makes you wonder why he even bothered. It seems most liberals want total capitulation, not a sincere apology. And fed-up conservatives are fighting back.
The mainstream media made sure it kept the pressure on Stallone by writing nonstop about his “mean tweets,” while largely ignoring the vicious online bullying targeting David Hogg’s classmate, 16-year-old Kyle Kashuv.
Kashuv, who also survived the Valentine’s massacre in Parkland, Florida, has been mocked and threatened by David Hogg, “celebrities,” and random adults, and the mainstream media have looked the other way. Why? Because Kyle is pro-Second Amendment.
Fortunately, conservatives were there to back Kyle up and point out the hypocrisy, like when CNN contributor Joan Walsh, 59, attacked Kashuv, 16, and CNN said nothing.
Walsh, the author of “What’s the Matter With White People?,” was widely slammed in July 2017 when she bullied Ivanka Trump for being too pretty to represent women’s rights.
You’re mocking and belittling a 16 year old who just survived a school shooting. Have some class, Joan. https://t.co/J9n074cvZn

Time to turn up the heat on CNN’s sponsors. https://t.co/F5f7JlzdUA

Newsweek’s Kurt Eichenwald also cyberbullied young Kyle.

Conservatives said Laura Ingraham should never have apologized to David Hogg in the first place, since all it did was embolden him.
Laura Ingram should not have apologized.
Like Marco, they will now shred her because she showed weakness.
Never back down to them.
You might lose a lot, but not your dignity.

This is why you should never, ever apologize. Consider this a teachable moment for the right. https://t.co/JJQqyCPK8A
