Probably not. Regardless, Tom Cruise's 20-year-old son went on a Twitter rant earlier today to criticize the announcement that the 65-year-old Vanity Fair cover star will receive the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at this year's ESPY Awards.
"Really?? Winning the AA award for courage?? Ashton is gonna come out and yell PUNK'D," Cruise tweeted 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."

"I'm totally supportive of people staying true to themselves and finding true happiness in whatever way they can," he continued. "There are just way more things that we as a nation and as a planet should be talking about and working on."
Cruise went 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…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."
Based on the Internet's response to Caitlyn Jenner's debut, it's safe to say the world has deemed her pretty important.
