‘Succession’ Star Brian Cox Warns Hollywood: ‘The Whole Woke Culture Is Truly Awful’

Hollywood legend and star of the hit HBO show “Succession” Brian Cox has told the “woke” culture warriors to pound sand in an interview with Piers Morgan.

Cox blasted efforts by the “woke” mob to cancel anyone that disagrees with the leftist agenda.

“The whole woke culture is truly awful,” Cox told Morgan.

“Who are the arbiters of this shaming?

“It turns out it’s usually a bunch of millennials.”

“What I can’t stand, I can’t stand the way we want to rewrite history.

“I can’t stand the way we don’t want to acknowledge history and it’s so important to acknowledge what our history is because that defines who we are.

“And where we’ve got to go and without an acknowledging history we are screwed.

“You’re well and truly screwed.”


Cox plays Rupert Murdoch-like media mogul Logan Roy in the hit TV show.
