Tom Cruise’s son, Connor Cruise, isn’t feeling the fact that Caitlyn Jenner is expected to receive the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the ESPY Awards.

According to E!, the 20-year-old tweeted – and then quickly deleted – a rant against the transgender star:

“Really?? Winning the AA award for courage?? Ashton is gonna come out and yell PUNK’D,” Connor tweeted on Wednesday.

“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.”

Cruise then went on to suggest his followers pay less attention to Jenner’s transition and focus on different issues.

“I’m totally supportive of people staying true to themselves and finding true happiness in whatever way they can,” he wrote. “There are just way more things that we as a nation and as a planet should be talking about and working on.”

“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.” he continued.

“Or what about the fact that our planet is becoming less habitable on a daily basis. Yet the population is increasing at an alarming rate…Or the fact that we all can’t even get a long on earth lol. We fight and kill each other. We have war and poverty. This needs to change.”

He added… “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.”

Much like anyone who voices their opinion on social media, Cruise received a good amount backlash on Twitter, to which he responded by deleting his remarks.

He did, however, try to calm the waters by clarifying his remarks:

    I don’t think that Jenner is deserving of this award. This is something the ESPY’s are doing purely for ratings. That is all.

      I totally I told agree there are so many more people much more deserving than Kaitlyn so what she did what she did Jen has a surgery to change yourself she still a man while we jump on this bandwagon purge or there may the people down when she’s done so stop all the hoopla and let’s give the word someone who really deserves to be the carriage champion

    Hooray for Bruce/Caitlyn, whatever, but people, hello, as long as he chooses to keep his penis, she is still a he. Just a man dressing like a female. Everyone is jumping on the Bruce Jenner bandwagon, I just want all of you to put yourself in his biological children’s shoes. I know we keep hearing, oh I am happy that he is happy. Bulls—. He has such handsome sons who shared manly secrets about women, never knowing that there dad wanted to be that woman. It hurts people. Not saying anything mean or hateful, but just remember, so many transgenders came before Bruce Jenner. Now America wants to Glorify him for having courage. The Arthur Ashe award was not created for this type of courage. Please do not criticize Connor Cruise for having his opinion. He is not showing hate, just expressing himself. My question to all of you people jumping on the Bruce Jenner bandwagon,”Why is it okay for him to express himself in front of our children, but not okay for our children to say how they feel about it?”

      you are on point why does a tranny with mental issues get to express himself freedom of speech is not for tranny who want to be a woman but forget they have a penis , he wants sexuall both worlds and some nut will ask him for marriage even no on will believe what has happen to him … he was really hurt as a chld and needs healing

          @Dallas Martin, just because you throw around derogative lables, doesn’t invalidate the above point…which seemed to be written without overt hate, phobia or negativity. Catch L’s trick!

    Hell no…courage would be completing the entire process. What this is, is just plastic surgery for a fetish…GTFOH. Giving him/her waaaaay more credit than deserved.
