Rather, the show provides both audience members and…

masculinity because for hegemonic masculinity the only emotion you are supposed to express is anger or aggression.
Sylvester Stallone who plays Rocky Balboa can be put under the category of hegemonic masculinity because he does not show emotion; he is the normative white male that does not show too much emotion.
