Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson Calls Out The President In Passionate Black Lives Matter Speech (VIDEO)
Dwayne Johnson has called out President Trump in a passionate video in support of the Black Lives Matter movement.
“Where are you? Where is our leader?” Johnson asks.
The Rock posted an Instagram video on Wednesday night in which he called out the President for his lack of leadership after the killing of George Floyd.
“Where is our leader at this time, at 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. … We must say the words Black Lives Matter,” The Rock said.
Things became even more tense this week when Trump threatened military intervention as protests spread nationwide. That was followed by protesters at the White House being dispersed with the use of tear gas so Trump could walk to St. John’s Church and stand for a photo-op while holding a Bible.
“There is military force that has been deployed on our own people. Looters? Yes. Criminals? Absolutely. But on protesters, who are begging and pleading?” The Rock said, shaking his head. “On protesters who are in pain? You know, you would be surprised how people in pain would respond when you say to them, ‘I care about you.’ When you say to them, ‘I’m listening to you.'”
The Rock called on Trump to take “full accountability” to take on systemic racism in the United States to create change and “normalize equality.”
