I’d still go see the Hercules movie, but yes you’re right, he’s a Republican so I really can’t cheer The Rock on. Of course Robert Downey Jr. is a Republican too, and that doesn’t seem to stop Tumblr from… well, anything.
It’s cute to me that people will write off an indigenous man kicking ass in the white man’s world because of his “supposed” political affiliations. Granted, Republicans by and large are not people I am a huge fan of - but there are most definitely reasons for why people register Republican. It’s just a name, I myself was a registered Republican for several years despite that I didn’t agree with several (ALL) of their politics - for reasons that are incredibly personal and frankly unpleasant.
He spoke at the Republican National Convention that’s right, he also spoke at the DEMOCRATIC National Convention because it was a campaign to encourage kids to vote.
When the day comes that The Rock actually goes out and says women aren’t allowed autonomy, racism is great, and homosexuality is a sin - then you can throw him under the bus. He’s never done anything like that, aside from having a lame little political label under his name. The same by the way, applies to Prince Quentin Kawananakoa who is also a Republican and is one of the heirs to the Hawaiian throne. We are a Democratic state, and his siblings are certainly Democrats, but we honor and support him regardless.
Dwayne Johnson is a proud wonderful Samoan man, a damn Seiuli (chief, yeah he’s literally a Samoan chieftan), and a great role-model. So if you can’t cheer him on because he might “potentially” be on the “other side” then I guess support of indigenous people is conditional to a lousy form filled out when you turn 18.
