The Rock is largely known for staying away from topics that are controversial on social media. This was not the case today. CNN reporter Oliver Dercy dug up a post from The Rock’s Instagram where he discusses meeting The Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia.
Dercy went on to blast The Rock over it on Twitter.

The Rock quickly responded, accusing Dercy of clickbait and encouraging him to dig deeper:
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

Dercy fired back, asking The Rock to clarify his stance, for which he has yet to do:
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. Ppl look up to you. Do you regret giving him a platform? Has your opinion changed? https://t.co/yPHazTLIRt
