TOP Gear’s Andrew Flintoff says getting offended is now a “national sport”. The cricket legend, 42, fears being “cancelled” amid the politically correct climate.
He said: “Sometimes it’s difficult to know what you’re allowed to have an opinion on, how to say it and whether you should open your mouth at all. “That’s why we’ve got this cancel culture because people love getting offended and jumping on people’s mistakes or opinions that vary from theirs. "It’s a national sport.
That’s why I’m better off away from social media.” The BBC host, nicknamed Freddie, said people identifying as another gender makes no sense to him, “a bloke from Preston”.
