“Never give in, never give out, never give up,” Sylvester Stallone responds to Oscar snub.

Action star Sylvester Stallone’s brother Frank, slammed the Academy for awarding Mark Rylance with the best supporting actor Oscar, and later apologised for his remarks on Bridge of Spies actor.

Rylance took home the best supporting actor Oscar beating the frontrunner Sylvester Stallone and like his fans, the Creed star’s brother Frank was visibly upset by the Academy’s decision.

Sylvester, 69, appeared to be in fine spirits and thanked his fans for all the support captioning his Oscar red carpet photo “NEVER GIVE IN , NEVER GIVE OUT , NEVER GIVE UP! Thanks for the support.” But Frank could not stop himself from slamming the Academy and calling Rylance’s win “Hollywood bullshit”.

The Rocky star later reacted to his sibling’s comments. “Sorry, didn’t mean for this picture to go up before saying that I’m very happy and please understand my brother is so emotional because he is just very protective and only wants the best for me. Life is good!,” he wrote on Instagram.

Following the post by his brother, Frank shared an apologetic tweet.

“I will always defend what’s right but I was wrong to put down Mark Rylance and I apologize. He is a fine actor but I thought Sly deserved it,” he posted.

Sylvester was nominated in the category for his role in Creed. Rylance won the Oscar for his role of KGB agent Rudolf Abel in the Steven Spielberg-directed Cold War-set drama.
