Luvvie annoyances

Apparently the average actor under the age of 40 has diction so poor, theatre audiences can't hear them:
"The director Sir Peter Hall, who founded the Royal Shakespeare Company and headed the National Theatre, told The Times that "most actors under the age of 40 are struggling to be heard". He was backed by the actor Edward Fox who ridiculed younger actors for mumbling their lines in the pursuit of realism."
And ridicule is surely the only appropriate response? Because if they followed 'realism' to its logical conclusion, they'd stop pretending to be other people for a living, surely?
