The Rock is a Pussy

All that working out and The Rock is still such weaksauce. In GQ, The Rock talked about how both Donald Trump and Hilary Clinton reached out for his endorsement during this past election.

The Rock declined. That’s not the weak part.

He said:

I feel like I’m in a position now where my word carries a lot of weight and influence, which is of course why they want the endorsement.

That’s not the weak part either.

I feel like it would either make people unhappy with the thought of whatever my political view was. And it also might sway an opinion, which I didn’t want to do.

That’s the weak part.

He doesn’t say it, but read into it. Basically, he’s saying he’s afraid The Fate of the Furious would’ve sold a few less tickets if people realized he supported Clinton or Trump. Who the hell cares? The Fast and Furious franchise will last for another 10 years, The Fate of the Furious made $1 billion, so what if a few people decide not to buy a ticket or two. It’s really doubtful people won’t see those movies because he likes one candidate or another.

Or take the words at face value. He’s afraid people will be “unhappy.” C’mon, not everyone’s gonna like you Rock. What are you so scared of? It’s laughable. Yea, stay on brand. Talk about know your role and shut your mouth. The Rock’s doing that really well.

It’s reminiscent of Michael Jordan’s “Even Republicans buy sneakers too” quote. Why rock (no pun intended) the boat when you can get another dollar?

The Rock wants to stay on message by cultivating this down-to-earth, everyman image.

He’ll go around to children’s hospitals to entertain them.

Support cancer survivors.

Cool story to share on Easter.. After my workout I'm drivin' in my pick up and notice these kids in the rearview mirror screamin' & runnin' after my truck. Thought to myself, "Should I stop or keep drivin'?" I stopped. I hop out of my truck and this kid runs up to me, hugs the hell outta me and says it's been his life's dream to meet me and tell me how much I've inspired him to fight cancer (Hodgkin's lymphoma) and hard core chemo and stem cell transplant treatments. He was a little teary eyed and said for months and months all he's wanted to do was find me and say this face to face. I told him what it meant to me to hear this story. I thanked him, hugged him (and his friends), got back in my truck and drove away. As I'm drivin' I start shaking my head (and tearing up) at how fragile life is and how amazing and cool the universe was to make this meeting happen between myself and this special kid Nick Miller. Let's always take a moment to count our blessings.. cause there's always something to be grateful for. Happy Easter y'all – DJ

And dress up as Pikachu to entertain his daughter for hours.

The first time Jasmine's favorite character, Pikachu came to visit her months ago she was only crawling. For Easter Sunday @laurenhashianofficial and I thought, Pikachu should make a special visit once again. Well, Pikachu didn't account for the fact that now Jazzy RUNS and for 2hrs straight she wants to play her new favorite game, "I run away and you chase me Pikachu. And you're not allowed to take a break until I go night night". At the end of the vid you can hear her yell, "Peekyu" because she can't say, Pikachu. I'm tired, today's my only day off, it's 118 degrees in this costume and Hobbs keep trying to p*ss on my leg. And I luv every minute of it. Bring it on. It's what daddy's do. Happy Easter to you guys and enjoy your families. #Rockachu #DaddyPuttinInWork #TheGameThatNeverEnds #PikachuLooksBloated

He’s really good at building this everyman appearance which is great and relatable. On the other hand, this huge superhero action star can’t even say what he thinks. It’s too bad because you hoped at least The Rock, of all celebs, wouldn’t be so weak.
