Deathstroke actor Joe Manganiello defended his love for Dungeons and Dragons when someone attempted to roast the role-playing game.
A wrestler from All-Elite Wrestling recently attempted to take a shot at Dungeons and Dragons by stereotyping people who enjoy the role-playing game, but Deathstroke actor Joe Manganiello stepped in to defend his love and the fans who also enjoy it. Maxwell Jacob Friedman posted a muscular gym selfie to Twitter with the caption; “I don’t play dungeons and dragons”. When fans attempted to claim that Friedman’s comments were part of a storyline to get them riled up ahead of matches, the wrestler shut them down – calling the entire community “trash”.
But Deathstroke star Joe Manganiello quickly retorted with his own photo showing off his impressive physique from the cover of Muscle & Fitness magazine, with a simple reply; “I do…”. It seems that the Deathstroke star isn’t afraid to step up to defend his love for Dungeons and Dragons! Take a look at Joe Manganiello defending the game on Twitter below.
