After slamming Caitlyn Jenner for being less important than the issue of "overfishing," Connor Cruise was spotted...fishing. See the photos!
Talk about a hypocrite!
Connor Cruise was caught doing a little fishing after slamming Caitlyn Jenner's big transition and calling it less important than the issue of "oversharing." Oh dear, Connor.
After hearing that Caitlyn was to receive the Arthur Ashe Award For Courage at the ESPY Awards, he could not help but express his disapproval!
"Really?? Winning the AA award for courage?? Ashton is gonna come out and yell PUNK'D," Cruise huffed on Twitter.
"Don't get me wrong. Do what you feel like doing and don't let anyone stop you. But everyone is taking this way too seriously…There are so many more important things that should be talked about…And SO MANY MORE IMPORTANT PEOPLE that actually deserve an award," he continued.
Then in an unexpected twist, he added this odd argument piece to the bizarre rant: "Like the fact that we are overfishing and in 30 years there will be no more fish. Seems dumb but 85 percent of the worlds protein is fish. That's one of thousands of things that should be of a higher importance than what is currently being gone over."
Later, Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman's adopted son attempted to set the record straight.
The twitter-verse proved to be a flop, however, and the backlash was swift, with opponents calling him transphobic.
Cruise quickly deleted his tweets and posted an apology in their place.
"Totally twisting what I said, if you read what I said I totally support being happy and am glad she is happy. We just need to as a nation and a world get back to business and making everything a better place," he shared.
In a last-ditch effort to defend his behavior, Cruise also added: "Way more about the problems the world needs to solve than about her guys."
Unfortunately his mea culpa couldn't make up for his original diss towards Jenner.
His fishing trip ironically took place just days later.
