According to the Hollywood Reporter, funnyman Adam Carolla let loose a serious rant during a discussion about the Occupy Wall Street movement.
In a tirade that’s going viral, Carolla goes off on the Millennial generation during a segment of an earlier podcast.
The former “Loveline” host explains his theory on why 20-somethings are involved in the OWS movement, calling the young group “f----g self-entitled monsters.”
Adam, who currently hosts the popular podcast “The Adam Carolla Show,” blames parents for creating what he calls entitlement issues, which he thinks fed into the Occupy movement.
“You should feel good about yourself because of your accomplishments. Not because somebody yelled at you to feel good about yourself,” Carolla, 47, says of parents’ penchant for participation trophy-dispensing and constant praise.
“[They’re] self-entitled pr--–s who think the world owes them a living,” the radio personality continued. “But then you get out into the real world and you realize, ‘I’m a f-–g loser.’"
Carolla says those in the millennial generation are participating in OWS because they’re ashamed of not having accomplished much professionally.
“They’ve been shamed by life because they haven’t been prepared for life," he explains. "They’ve had so much smoke blown up their collective a--s, by the time they get out in the real world and they realize, the real world doesn’t give a f-- where you’re from or what your mommy said you were or how pretty you are.”
What do you think of Adam's observations?
