Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson Bemoans ‘Woke Culture,’ Declines to Endorse a Presidential Candidate

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is keeping his name off the ballot slip and his lips sealed about his 2024 presidential vote.

In an interview with “Fox & Friends” shared Friday, the wrestler and actor reflected on his 2020 endorsement of President Joe Biden. “What that caused back then was something that tears me up in my guts back then and now, which is division,” Johnson said, adding that it’s something he won’t do this election cycle.

“The takeaway after that, after months and months and months, I started to realize, like, ‘Oh man, that caused an incredible amount of division in our country,'” the “Black Adam” star said. “I wouldn’t do that, because my goal is to bring our country together. I believe in that, in my DNA. So in the spirit of that, there’s going to be no endorsement.”

Johnson added: “Not that I’m afraid of it at all, but it’s just I realize that (with) this level of influence … I keep my politics to myself, and I think it’s between me and the ballot box.”

Biden and former President Donald Trump are the presumptive Democrat and Republican nominees, respectively, in the 2024 presidential election this November. Third party candidates include Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Cornel West and Jill Stein.

Whatever happens this election, Johnson said he will support the president. “I do trust the American people. And I trust that whoever they vote for. That’s going to be my president, and that’s who I’m going to support 100%,” he said.

Although Johnson did not reveal which way his vote was swaying, he did share that he wants the country to move away from “woke culture” and “cancel culture” because “that really bugs me.”
