Dwayne Douglas Johnson, also known as The Rock, offered condolences to the British Royal Family on Queen Elizabeth’s death and sent his love to everyone mourning the late Monarch.
“The 50-year-old Moana actor said he was ‘sending love’ to the people of Great Britain and told them to ‘stay strong.’” Per Daily Mail.
“This post comes after there were fake tweets posted that had the movie star’s name attached. The notes, which paid tribute to the Queen while plugging his October movie Black Adam, went viral.”
In his video message, Dwayne did not mention his movie or anything about the fake tweet; rather he shared a positively heartfelt note.
“Well, it has been one hell of a Thursday so far,’ he shared before adding, ‘I’m just swooping in really quickly to stop in and send my love and my condolences, my light, strength, and mana to the royal family during this time in the spirit of the passing of the Queen.”
“I’m so sorry, I know the pain like we all know the pain. What a life. What an incredible life. I never had the privilege or honor of meeting the Queen, but what a life.”
The video showed that the Fast & Furious actor wore an LA Rams workout shirt while standing in a gym; people could listen to the country music playing in the background.
“Seven decades, I think, of the longest-running monarchy. I think – I’m terrible at math, but I believe it’s seven decades. What an impactful life.”
The Red Notice actor went on to share about his father’s death in 2020, just before the pandemic hit the world – Rocky Johnson died at 67.
“I gotta tell you, not that this is any consolation,” the former professional wrestler said.
“When I lost my old man two years ago before the pandemic, my old man just dropped, and he passed away, and I never had a chance to say goodbye to him, and I regret that.”
“The way I look at that these days is it (death) informs us on how we should live moving forward because, in their spirit, we have an opportunity to live life and live greatly with passion and fervor and positive energy with all we’ve got,” he added.
“Sending a lot of love,” he concluded. “Stay strong. Now let’s live as greatly as we can – and what a life.”
According to Daily Mail, ‘The Rock may have felt compelled to reach out after someone on the internet released two fake Tweets under the actor’s name that went viral.’
‘Both were attached to the opening of his upcoming action film, Black Adam, with one reading, “Rest in peace to her Majesty the Queen, Elizabeth II. A great woman who sat on the throne as long as anyone in British history. Sad she will never get to see Black Adam.’”
