Sylvester Stallone's younger brother Frank triggered a wave of insults on Twitter on Saturday after calling Parkland-shooting survivor David Hogg a "p-y," "little b-h," and a "coward."
"This David Hogg p-y is getting a bit tall for his pants," tweeted Stallone. "I'm sure one of his peers is sick of beating that rich little bra, watch him run home like the coward he is, he's the worst advocate for today's teenage boys' headline. Headline. "
The tweet has since been removed and its Twitter account suspended, but we took a screenshot below.

Yes, Frank Stallone is tough. I bet he was in a school unarmed to stop a shooter, just like Cadet Spanky Bonespurs. God, I love tough guys.

It's time to Boycott Frank Stallone's projects. No one goes to the car wash in which he works.

Sly's younger brother is a singer / songwriter whose single "Far From Over" from "Staying Alive" made it # 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 and was nominated in 1983 for a Golden Globe Award for best original song from a film. In the 90s, he was a running gag on "Saturday Night Live" during the Weekend Updates segment, which was hosted by Norm Macdonald at the time.

David Hogg NOT Gave the Hitler Salute
After his speech at the rally in March for our lives, a picture circulated that David Hogg stood with outstretched arm and outstretched fist Nazi salute. "All in favor of gun control, raise your right arm," says the meme. Several in social media also used the comparison, but the video shows that Hogg stuck his closed fist in the air rather than an open palm down.
