Answer me this: Is it then OK to make statement 1 but not statement 2?
Of course. Statement 1 is expressing a personal view. Statement 2 is an 'insult'. It may be a mild one.
The fact that I am an Apple customer doesn't change the fact that I agree with both points, but it also doesn't change the fact that the second term is perjorative.
