Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson Faces Backlash For Choosing Who He Is Going To Vote For
Oct 16th, 2020
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has always been loved by his fans, both young and old. It seems like he has never done something to insult them or to lose their trust. He may seem like a huge and scary man, but he has his ways to get his fans to smile.
He is funny and a known family-man that is why people love him. The Rock has been one of the highest-earning actors for the past years.
And yes, we can say that he is definitely successful in his field. His fans look up to him. They love him for being who he is. The Rock has always been transparent when it comes to his opinions. And so far, nothing that he has done has offended anyone.
However, he recently received major online backlash after he publicly endorsed a presidential candidate.
Five weeks before the elections, The Rock posted on Instagram and Twitter stating that he “registered independent with centrist ideologies.” He then explained that both Joe Biden and Camilla Harris are his best choices to lead the United States of America. However, his republican fans were not happy with this.
He dedicated two videos for this upcoming election. He talked about Biden and Harris and tried to convince his fans and followers to understand his decision. Still, the reaction was not something that he probably hoped for.
He posted it with this caption:
“Own the outcome! Voting conversation w/ @joebiden & @kamalaharris”
He added, “It’s always important to identify the conversations that really matter – and this conversation is critical – voting… All of us get out there to cast our vote for who we want…. Our voice. Our power… And keep this in mind, no matter how strongly your opinion may differ from mine, it’s always gonna be ok… You can yell all you want, but I’m not blocking you from our conversation.
I won’t even yell back. Because we all have work to do, now let’s talk about VOTING. ”
In the video that he shared, he asked Joe Biden how he would earn the country’s respect. Biden answered saying, “By keeping our word. By leveling with the American people. By taking responsibility … That sounds so basic, but the American people are strong; they’re tough. They can take anything if you level with them and tell the truth.”
Camilla Harris added, “Truth can sometimes be really difficult to hear, for that reason sometimes people don’t speak it. But you cannot have trust if you don’t speak the truth.”
We know that the entire country is currently divided and because of this there is no question why Dwayne Johnsons’ post exploded that fast. Now, his fans are unfollowing him. Some of them responded to his post. One of them wrote, “How unfortunate you took this opportunity to support these two. You just lost another fan.” Another person commented saying, “Who else is unfollowing this Hollywood Owned Puppe?”
It is obvious not even though they are his fans, there are some things that they would not support him with. And even though his posts were carefully crafted, his fans were not having any of it.
Despite the fact that he got a major disapproval from his republican fans, some people believe that at least, he tried.
It’s always important to identify the conversations that really matter – and this conversation is critical – voting. All of us getting out there to cast our vote for who we want. Our voice. Our power. And keep this in mind, no matter how strongly your opinion may differ from mine, it’s always gonna be ok. You can yell all you want, but I’m not blocking you from our conversation. I won't even yell back. 😉 Because we all have work to do, now lets talk about VOTING.
