Dwayne â€œThe Rockâ€ JohnsonÂ on Thursday toasted to his reaching a milestone of 200 million followers on Instagram, which makes him the most followed man in America on the social media platform.
The feat comes little more than a week after the action star and former WWE wrestler endorsed former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Kamala Harris in the upcoming presidential election against PresidentÂ Donald TrumpÂ and Vice President Mike Pence. Since then, heâ€™s gained about 200,000 Instagram followers, according toÂ Trackalytics, which provides statistics about social media.
Johnson wore a bowtie and opened a bottle from his tequila brand, Teremana, as he spoke about the what heâ€™s learned over the past couple of weeks.
â€œThe life lesson I wanna share with you guys is to always speak your truth,â€ Johnson said. â€œAlways speak your truth and do your best to speak your truth with compassion, with a little bit of poise, with a little bit of dignity, with respect and with empathy, even when speaking your truth means youâ€™re gonna dive into some conversations that might make people a little uncomfortable.â€
Those kinds of conversations are important to have, he said, because whatâ€™s on the other side of them is clarity and progress. â€œAnd I want to tell you guys: thank you, thank you, thank you for, I mean, deep here in my bones, thank you guys for giving me the space to speak my truth,â€ he added.
Johnsonâ€™s presidential endorsement was a big deal for him, because heâ€™s never made one before. The highest-paid actor of 2020, according toÂ Forbes, had a virtual discussion with the two that he included in his postÂ publicly throwing his supportÂ to the Democratic ticket.
The Skyscraper star said then that heâ€™s voted for both Republicans and Democrats in the past. He described himself as â€œa political independent and centrist for many years,â€ but this years feels that Biden and Harris are the â€œbest choice to lead our country.â€
