As residents continue to deal with the devastating effects of the Hawaii wildfires, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson (who is of Samoan descent and lived in Hawaii for part of his childhood) is taking a moment to send a supportive message to everyone dealing with the aftermath of the tragedy.
While taking a break from his workout at the gym, Johnson, 51, starts the Instagram video (posted on his account this past Sunday) by saying some encouraging words to the people affected by the wildfires. “This message goes out to our Hawaiian islands back home, our Hawaiian people. Our Polynesian people,” the Jumanji: The Next Level actor said in the clip.
He added, “As hard as it is right now, as challenging as it is right now, as heartbreaking as it is right now, we have to stay together because this—no doubt—is the thing that is going to make us stronger.”
