A few weeks back Johnson also opened up about the Black Lives Matter movement.
via: InstagramAnd, in an 8-minute clip shared to his Instagram, the star directly called out Trump for his lack of compassionate and empowering leadership during these times.
In the video, the star asks Trump one very simple question... Where are you?
via: Instagram"Where is our leader at this time?" he questions. "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?"
Johnson spoke emotionally during the clip.
via: Instagram"Where is our compassionate leader who is going to step up to our country who's down on its knees and extend a hand and say, you stand up. Stand up with me. Stand up with me, because I got you," Johnson said. "I got you, I hear you, I'm listening to you."
The star also took some time to address the "All Lives Matter" debate...
via: InstagramOf course all lives matter. Every single one," he said. "All lives matter because we, as Americans, we believe in inclusivity, we believe in acceptance, we believe in human rights. We believe in equality for all. "But in this moment right now, this defining, pivotal, explosive moment where our country is down on its knees -- the floorboards of our country are becoming unhinged -- in this moment, we must say the words black lives matter," he continued. We must say it because so many people believe that they don't ... or at least not as much as white lives," he added.
The Rock is a big guy.
But just how strong is he?
His front metal gate wouldn't open.
So... he 'did what he had to do'.
I pushed, pulled and ripped the gate completely off myself. Tore it out of the brick wall, severed the steel hydraulics and threw it on the grass. My security team was able to meet the gate technician and welders about an hour later — and they were apparently, “in disbelief and equally scared." Not my finest hour, but I had to go to work.
