Actor Frank Stallone made it crystal clear where he stands on the issue of gun control by directing a series of tweets at Never Again MSD co-founder and student activist David Hogg.
“This David Hogg pussy is getting a little big for his britches,” Stallone wrote in a since-deleted tweet. “I’m sure someone from his age group is dying to sucker punch this rich little bitch. Watch him run home like the coward he is. He’s the worst rep for today’s youth headline-grabbing punk.”
Hogg has come under fire from the likes of conservative pundits such as Laura Ingraham for his stance on gun control after surviving the February shooting attack at Stoneman Douglas High School.
After wishing bodily harm on someone nearly one-third his age, Stallone then set his Twitter account to private—presumably after multiple users checked him for his irreverent behavior.

Love the irony here. Frank Stallone, not The Italian Stallion, is going to call a high school kid a “Pussy” but protected his tweets. pic.twitter.com/gHwFGT3sYS— TigerBlood (@HTJ2016) March 31, 2018
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.
Prior to sending NSFW tweets at Hogg, Stallone was best known for appearing in such cinematic classics as 2017’s Sex Trip, 2007’s Fred Claus, and the 2000 film Get Carter. As his name implies, Stallone is the younger brother of actor Sylvester Stallone.

Frank Stallone’s brush with, umm, death... came when a gun went off in a gun shop sending him to the hospital with a terrifying... nick on one of his fingers.
Quite the Rambo. pic.twitter.com/3VijGfZ8u6
One Twitter user offered a delicious plot twist. Technically, Frank Stallone is reportedly also a victim of gun violence in some form. A 1990 issue of Spy magazine reported a Beverly Hills gun shop owner accidentally shot Stallone while displaying a Colt Python .357 Magnum. Stallone sued the owner. There’s no word on if anyone from Stallone’s age group sucker punched him.
