Big time award-winning actress Sharon Stone took a sledgehammer to cancel culture during a radio interview she participated in on Thursday, discussing people’s diverse backgrounds and telling them “grow up” and use some “empathy.”
Stone was on the show to discuss her book “The Beauty of Living Twice,” with “Just Jenny” host Jenny Hutt, when Hutt touched on the topic of cancel culture and people’s fear to speak about tough issues.
“I think cancel culture is the stupidest thing I have ever seen happen,” Stone bluntly told Hutt, Fox News reported.
“I think when people say things that they feel and mean, and it’s offensive to you, it’s a brilliant opportunity for everyone to learn and grow and understand each other,” the “Casino” actress continued.
Stone emphasized that differing perspectives derive from our diverse backgrounds.
“We all come from different ages, different cultures, different backgrounds, different things, and have had different experiences, different traumas, different upbringings, different parents, different religious backgrounds, different everything,” she said, noting that we need to “give people an opportunity to discuss things before you wipe out their entire person over a statement or a comment or a misunderstanding.”
“Stop being so small,” the actress urged listeners. “People have done so much more than one sentence.”
Man, it is so refreshing to hear this kind of message coming from an A-lister in Hollywood, isn’t it? We need more of this in our culture today. A lot more. We need people who will stand up for truth and for freedom of speech, so we can all be free to share our thoughts, ideas, and beliefs.
