Zack Sharf Digital News Director Dwayne Johnson railed against journalist Nick Sortor on X (formerly Twitter) over “toxic, false clickbait garbage” after the latter framed Johnson’s appearance at a recent WWE press conference in a way that called out the superstar’s relief efforts in Maui.
A video from the WWE event showed Johnson getting booed by the crowd. Sortor claimed that was because the crowd was calling out Johnson for not delivering on his promise to provide financial relief to Maui in the wake of last year’s wildfires. “Dwayne Johnson promised TENS OF MILLIONS to the victims of the Maui fires, but many victims still have not seen a dime,” Sortor wrote. “It looks like the audience is fully AMERICA FIRST and is demanding The Rock and Oprah follow through with their commitment to take care of the people of Lahaina.
The crowd started booing and chanting ‘MAUI! MAUI! MAUI!” MAKE IT HAPPEN!'” Last August, Johnson and Oprah launched the People’s Fund of Maui to support those impacted by the wildfires.
The duo made an initial donation of $10 million, but they soon faced backlash on social media for not contributing even more of their personal wealth to the cause.Read more on variety.com
