Black Adam Stays Neutral: Dwayne Johnson Refuses to Endorse Any Candidate in 2024 Election

"My goal is to bring this country together," Johnson says


Despite playing the anti-heroic Black Adam in 2022 DCEU movie, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is taking a decidedly non-partisan stance ahead of the 2024 presidential election, vowing to stay neutral and not endorse any presidential candidates.

“The endorsement that I made years ago with Biden was one I thought was the best decision for me at that time,” Johnson said Friday in an interview on Fox News. “I thought, ‘I’m in this position where I have some influence and I felt it was my job then to exercise my influence [and] share: This is who I’m going to endorse.’ I’m not going to do that.”

Not one for modesty, The Rock once again brags and to nobody’s surprise, centers everything on himself and boldly claims: I was then, the most followed man in the world, and am today, and I appreciate that … but what that caused was something that tears me up in my guts — which is division. “That got me. I didn’t realize that then, I just felt like there was a lot of unrest and I’d like things to calm down.”

After facing backlash over his presidential endorsement in 2020, Johnson has adopted a more neutral stance for the upcoming 2024 election cycle.

Johnson added: “The takeaway after that was it caused an incredible amount of division. I realize now going into this election, I will not do that. My goal is to bring this country together. I believe in that. There will be no endorsement. At this level of influence, I will keep my politics to myself. It is between me and the ballot box. But I will tell you this: Like a lot of us out there, not trusting of all politicians, I do trust the American people and whoever they vote for that is my president and who I will support 100 percent.”

Johnson also expressed frustration with the current political and cultural climate, taking aim at “cancel culture” and “woke culture.

“Today’s cancel culture, woke culture, division, etcetera — that really bugs me,” Johnson said. “In the spirit of that, you either succumb to that and be what other people want you to be, or you be yourself and be real … and that might make people upset and piss people off, and that’s OK.”

Johnson, who was indeed cancelled as a DC superhero and personally escorted off the Warner Bros. lot by James Gunn and Peter Safran, is currently rumored to be making an appearance in an upcoming Marvel Studios movie. Johnson is also one of the main events in this weekend’s WrestleMania 40.
