The Rock is facing backlash from CNN's Senior Media Reporter Oliver Darcy for meeting with Saudi Arabia's crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman six months ago. The two had the following Twitter exchange over the weekend.
Such a silly, clickbait post, Oliver. Im surprised you’d post this. Go back and really read my words. I listened and learned then. As I listen and learn now. C’mon man— Dwayne Johnson (@TheRock) October 20, 2018
You had dinner with a brutal authoritarian, playing a role in his PR campaign to convince the West that he was, as you’d say, someone with “modern views.” Then you gushed about it on social media.
