Stuck Between "The Rock" and a Hard Place

Stuck Between "The Rock" and a Hard Place

Leading up to the 2020 election, Joe Biden and his running mate Kamala Harris received an unlikely endorsement, from Dwayne The Rock Johnson. 

The Rock, like many it seems, is realizing the ramifications of voting for and of endorsing Joe Biden for President as the nation falls farther and farther into disarray. 

Johnson, who now identifies as an Independent, told Fox News that he regrets his endorsement. He says that this year he won’t be endorsing a candidate for President and will rather keep his politics to himself. 

He said, “The endorsement that I made years ago with Biden was one I thought was the best decision for me at that time. I realize now going into this election, I will not do that, my goal is to bring this country together.”

The former pro-wrestler, talked about how he views the current push for people to never be offensive is aggravating, because it forces people to be “dishonest”.

He explained, "To be real and to be direct and to be open and to be transparent….that's important to me," he went on, "In today's easy cancel culture world and cancel culture, woke culture, this culture, that culture division, etc., that really bugs me."

Johnson seems to have had an evolution over the past few years. In 2020 he was endorsing Biden just like every other celebrity, but now, he says he’s come to learn that being “real” and honest is far more important than not getting canceled. 

"You either succumb and be what you think other people want you to be, or you go, 'No, that's not who I am. I'm going to be myself and I'm going to be real.' If you ask me something, a real answer is important, and the truthful answer is important, and that may get people upset and may p--- people off. And that's okay," he said. 

Finally, when the Rock was asked if he’s happy with the current state of America, he said no. He did however state that he believes things will get better.
