The Rock put the smackdown on this candy ass.
Fans challenge celebrities on Twitter all the time. It’s one of the coolest things about the social media platform, which allows nobodies to interact with stars, and feel a little better about themselves. Usually, their tweets go unnoticed, but not always.
One Twitter user, named James McMahon, sent out a tweet that totally dissed on Dwayne Johnson's latest film, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. His quote read:
“I went to see Jumanji. F--- THE NEW JUMANJI. There is no way a character in a video game would lose a life, then be respawned still in possession of the item required to win. That’s some bullsh-t. What say you @TheRock. Otherwise it was quite good.”
Well, at least the ending was polite. We’re not quite sure if Dwayne The Rock Johnson even read the entire tweet, however, because he fiercely shot back at James, with this:
“Actually my friend, in the Jumanji Lore handbook, it clearly states in article 72 of section 7, ‘that any character who loses a life shall return to their original state with any item they possessed at the time of their demise.’ So kindly go f*ck yourself James.”

Wow! That is a major diss. James was messing with the wrong guy. We have to wonder if he somehow forgot that Johnson made his career out of talking trash on the WWE. One of his famous taglines was, “Do you smell what the Rock is cooking?” Yes, we do.
James is not alone in getting verbally taken down by the Johnson on Twitter. Last summer, Johnson used Twitter to challenge multiple critics who dissed Baywatch. The Rock tweeted:
“Fans LOVE the movie. Critics HATE it. What a glaring disconnect. People just want to laugh & have fun.”
In other tweets, Johnson described Baywatch as being so funny that audience members peed their pants. He said that he saw critics laughing in the crowd too, only to turn around and write scathing reviews.
The Rock may seem frustrated, but he knows what he’s doing. The man’s Twitter feed is like a publicity machine. His tweets are endearing, showing how much he cares about his projects and his co-stars. So, if his tweets get heated now and then, even better. His fans seem to only love him more.
Another star, named Johnson, who fell into a Twitter beef with fans recently, was Rian Johnson, the writer and director of Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Rian (@rianjohnson) came under fire after hundreds of fans hated key scenes in the film.
Fans claimed that the script had taken too many liberties, with the force, that were not previously established in the franchise. In response, Rian posted a video of himself reading a book entitled, The Jedi Path. He also posted pages in the book, which explained Luke’s controversial hologram-doppelgänger scenes.
Even Mark Hamill himself (@HammillHimself) complained about The Last Jedi script, and told Variety magazine, “I pretty much fundamentally disagree with every choice you’ve made for this character.” However, Hamill recently came back to the light and used Twitter to apologize for those negative comments. Just imagine if Twitter was only used for good, not evil. Nah, that’d be way too boring.
