Adam Carolla blasts Occupy protesters

LOS ANGELES, Dec. 2 (UPI) -- U.S. comedian Adam Carolla called participants in the Occupy Wall Street protests "self-entitled monsters" during an interview with the Media Research Center.

"There's something that's come up in this country that didn't use to exist, which is envy. And it's a big issue," E! News quoted Carolla as saying.

"It was understood back in the day, and we are empowering, we're now dealing with the first wave of participation trophy, my own fecal matter doesn't stink, empowered, I feel so [expletive] good about myself, everyone's a winner, there's no losers, we're dealing with the first wave of those [expletive] assholes."

E! News said Carolla blamed baby boomers for spoiling their children by puffing up their egos and not expecting them to work for what they want.

"We've created a bunch of [expletive] self-entitled monsters," Carolla said. "'I want my Most Valuable Player trophy.' 'Well, you're the slowest, fattest guy on the team.' 'Why should he get one and I don't get one?' 'Because he busts his ass and he runs a 4.4 40. That's why he gets one.' 'Well, this is [expletive.]' And then everyone gets involved and everyone gives everyone a participation trophy and then everyone feels good about themselves but it's not based on anything. ... You should feel good about yourself because of your accomplishments. Not because somebody yelled at you to feel good about yourself."

Carolla is a popular television and radio personality known for his work on "The Man Show," "Crank Yankers" and "Love Line."
