Default People unfollow ‘The Rock’ after he posts support of US military

Actor Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is taking flak and losing fans for his support of the U.S. military.

Fort Bliss’ 1st Armored Division recently named an M1 Abrams tank after Johnson, who took to social media to express his gratitude – but then he received criticism for it.

“I’m sending a salute of respect & gratitude to the Blackhawk Squadron1st Armored Division for the honor of naming their tank (the most advanced in the world) Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson. Heavy duty, [expletive], sexy … and built to take care of business—but most importantly, thank you all for your service. Grateful to the bone,” Johnson captioned along with a photo of the tank, which he posted Friday on Instagram.

Despite more than two million likes on the post, the critics sounded off.

“That’s not something to be very proud of because it’ll be your name on that tank that’ll kill innocent people,” one user commented.

“Well I really like you as a person and everything but what is a tank meant for? If it is to take the lives of human beings and others then it is not admirable… I hope it won’t be used… ” another wrote.

“Not sure having a destructive weapon named after you is such a great honor,” yet another user claimed.

Numerous “fans” who voiced criticism said they would be unfollowing Johnson over the post, despite the fact that he had no involvement in the tank’s naming.

Many of his followers, however, voiced their approval of the act, and Johnson’s vocal gratitude.

Johnson’s post came days after the 1st Armored Division introduced the tank in tweet.

It has been Army tradition to name M1 Abrams battle tanks, with the name printed on the barrel of the tank’s 120mm gun.

“‘If you smell what America’s Tank Division is cooking!’ Shoutout to the #IronSoldiers assigned to the Blackhawk_SQDN for naming one of their tanks in homage to the therock. Hopefully the ‘People’s Champ’ will see it and give you guys a shoutout and a retweet!” the tweet said.

Johnson has voiced his support for the military in the past and has made numerous appearances on military bases or at events honoring the military.

“I come from a family of proud military soldiers – from the Vietnam war to Navy SEALS,” Johnson posted on Facebook in 2016.

he can support whatever he wants, but people have no obligation to be fans of his or follow him. expressing pride in being part of the Vietnam war for me is strange, its a colonial war and something you should be embarrassed about IMO.

but that's the thing, it's just my opinion.. dwayne has always been ultra conservative to the point of being a house negro, again imo.

but people may feel as they wish, i'm not an american, i consider their troops to be on the wrong side of justice more times than not, and the american glorification of war to be rather despicable.

DJ has the "Murica **** yeah! bomb them suckas!" way of thinking as i see it. i don't think he is a bad guy, just ignorant. the picture america paints of their army and what they really do around the world is a lot prettier than reality. and most people would rather believe an appealing lie than a depressing truth. again, dwayne seems quite the simpleton, wouldn't expect much more of him.

This takes "sissy" to a whole new level. Hope Johnson doesn't do the obligatory apology.

If the US military named the tank after an ISIS commander or communist/socialist hero like Lenin or Stalin, they would have approved.

That's horrible. The last thing innocent civilians will see is "The Rock" before they're attacked by the US military.
