A Twitter post from 2011 is now haunting Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and faces some serious backlash. In the now-viral tweet, he called a nursing student “tranny” and a prostitute.
The said tweet is now circulating online after Dwayne had involved himself in a dustup on Joe Rogan’s past “n-word” usage and ultimately disavowed him.
Dwayne recently shows his support for Joe Rogan after the left deleted and canceled Rogan with their so-called “COVID misinformation” campaign. Clips of Rogan using the n-word suddenly came out and were used to call out The Rock because of his support of Rogan by Don Winslow and he backed down.
Here’s the exchange Twitter comment before Don and The Rock:
Don said this: “Dear @TheRock, You’re a hero to many people and using your platform to defend Joe Rogan, a guy that used and laughed about using the N word dozens of times, is a terrible use of your power. Have you actually listened to this man’s many racist statements about Black people?”
And The Rock responded with this: “Dear @donwinslow Thank you so much for this I hear you as well as everyone here 100% I was not aware of his N word use prior to my comments, but now I’ve become educated to his complete narrative. Learning moment for me. Mahalo, brother and have a great & productive weekend. DJ”
Here’s the tweet exchange below:
Thank you so much for this
I hear you as well as everyone here 100%
I was not aware of his N word use prior to my comments, but now I’ve become educated to his complete narrative.
Learning moment for me.
Mahalo, brother and have a great & productive weekend.

After their exchange conversation, the past Twitter post of The Rock came out online about the “Tranny” comment he once used before.
After it was reposted, a lot of high-profile Twitter accounts shared the tweet and basically accused “The Rock” of major hypocrisy.
Here’s the backstory on The Rock’s past tweet:
Back in 2011, a nursing student by the name of Katie V. was trash-talking The Rock online and called him a “douche.”
Mr. Johnson responded by calling her a “tranny” who was prostituting herself to get through nursing school.
The backlash for the “tranny tweet” was swift and harsh.
Dwayne @TheRock Johnson called a young woman working her way through nursing school a tranny and a prostitute.
Dwayne The Rock Johnson is sexist, misogynistic, and transphobic.

This is why no one should feel any sympathy for what’s happening to @TheRock right now. Here he is calling @joerogan a buddy for years, but all it took for him to immediately throw his supposed friend under the bus was a few twitter lefties criticizing him.
Total coward move. https://t.co/E4owyT07rD

Eventually, The Rock deleted the tweet, which actually only made matters worse.
Hey @TheRock … why did you just delete this?

In addition, a video clip of The Rock mocking the Chinese language during a scripted WWE skit made the rounds

Wayne Dupree provides us more updates on the story:
As of this publishing, Joe Rogan has issued two apologies for his past n-word clips, and Spotify continues deleting podcasts, but the left is still pushing to cancel him.
Rogan’s n-word usage is garbage on its own, but this “canceling” is obviously political. We’ve yet to get a statement from The Rock on his “tranny” tweet or the video clips.
In this world that we are living, people most often judge using the things they have done from their pasts. We should realize that people have evolved and learned from their mistake and it should not be used against them especially when it was from years ago. If we are t be judged it’s fair enough to use what we have done in our present time.
But this era of non-stop “leftist cancel culture” is like a merry-go-round of hell that never ends.
