Actor and musician Frank Stallone is facing backlash after he reportedly slammed David Hogg, a gun control activist and survivor of the deadly school shooting in Parkland, Florida.
"This David Hogg [expletive] is getting a little big for his britches," Stallone wrote Saturday in a now-deleted tweet, according to Newsweek. "I'm sure someone from his age group is dying to sucker punch this rich little [expletive]. Watch him run home like the coward he is. He's the worst rep for today's youth headline grabbing punk."
Hogg recently made news after organizing an advertiser boycott against conservative TV host Laura Ingraham when she mocked him over his college rejections.
The tweet by Stallone, who is Sylvester Stallone's younger brother, quickly sparked backlash. Here's what people were saying:
What Frank Stallone said is despicable and I call on the Lomita Community Blood Bank to boycott him and no longer buy his plasma— Ike Barinholtz (@ikebarinholtz) March 31, 2018
Let’s all boycott Frank Stallone’s new— Rob Tannenbaum (@tannenbaumr) March 31, 2018
Frank Stallone and Ted Nugent are trending for being horrible on Twitter to a teenager...— Tony Posnanski (@tonyposnanski) March 31, 2018
If Scott Baio was allowed to use his phone during his shift at Subway today he would be trending as well.
I wish people would stop saying “Who is Frank Stallone?”— Tony Posnanski (@tonyposnanski) April 1, 2018
Stop being lazy and Google his name like the rest of us had to and realize he hasn’t worked in 30 years.
I know this is a very tense time in America, but if you’re actually reacting to the views & opinions of Frank Stallone, you need a break from Twitter.— Rory Albanese (@RoryAlbanese) March 31, 2018
We don’t have to worry about a Frank Stallone boycott. That started in the late seventies. https://t.co/gj4Ptc8wWR— Judd Apatow (@JuddApatow) March 31, 2018
Stallone has since made his Twitter account private.
