As many cities in the United States burn due to looting and rioting following the horrendous death of George Floyd, at the hand of four Minneapolis Police Officers over a week ago, many celebrities have taken to social media to let the world know their “expert” opinion. One of the latest celebrities to come out swinging is Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
In an instagram video, The Rock which he has been know by since the early 1990’s during his WWE days, began to attack President Trump with out mentioning his name. Through out the over eight minute video the Rock over and over again asks where “our leader” is. “Where is our leader at this time?” The Rock questioned. “This time when our country is down on its knees begging, pleading, hurt, angry, frustrated, in pain, begging and pleading with its arms out just wanting to be heard?”

Our country is crippled and on its knees, begging to be heard and pleading for change. Where is our compassionate leader? The leader who unifies and inspires our country at our most painful time when we need it the most. The leader who steps up and takes full accountability for our country and embraces every color in it. The leader who picks our country up off its knees and says you have my word – we got this – and together, change will happen. Where are you? Because we’re all here. Maybe one day that galvanizing leader will emerge. Either way, the process to change has already begun. #normalizeequality #blacklivesmatter
The Rock who is known to be interested in maybe getting into politics one day himself, took to his social media platform to set an example of how you can peacefully protest without having to damage other people’s property to get your point across.
