Can anyone explain the meaning of the phrase "to take a lot of slack for something", please? On a tv show David Cassidy is talking about his son and explains that he is at school but already knows the impact of his father's fame. He says:"people come up to him, and he's in school, and he's taken a lot of slack for it".

    "Flak" would made much more sense, perhaps it's a slip of the tongue, because the transcript of the program says "slack" as well. But that's a good hint, I think "flak" was meant here really. Thanks a lot.
