“Always speak your truth,” he said. “And when you do speak your truth, do your best to speak it with dignity, compassion, respect, poise and empathy. You’re going to dive into some conversations that might make people a little uncomfortable, but that’s okay.”
He thanked his fans for their support and giving him the space to speak his truth, and then toasted to them with a shot of tequila.
Johnson had turned to acting after dominating the wrestling rings as a bonafide WWE legend. He has a slew of action blockbusters under his belt, including movies from the Fast and Furious franchise. He is one of the highest-grossing actors of all time.
