Actor Dean Norris has a message for capitalism supporters who are displeased about the sky-high gas prices they have been facing lately: They can just “stfu,” Norris said, using an abbreviation for the profane expression shut the f*** up.
“Youre not getting ‘robbed’ at the pump. You’re paying fair market price for a commodity. If you love Capitalism so much then stfu,” Norris tweeted on Wednesday.
The actor, who has played roles in television shows such as “Breaking Bad” and “United States of Al,” made the comment as Americans continue to face soaring gas prices. As of Thursday, the AAA national average price for a gallon of regular gas is $5.009.
“This comment is evidence that Dean knows nothing about fair or free markets or economics,” RedState managing editor Jennifer Van Laar tweeted in response to the actor’s remarks.
“It’s not a fair-market price if government purposely creates scarcity to drive up the price,” tweeted David Harsanyi, a senior editor at the Federalist.
Someone else responded to Norris’s post by tweeting, “yeah those gas prices determined by the market that’s totally free and not at all distorted by government.”
“Another dimwit leftist rich actor spouting stupidity,” someone else declared.
