Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson has called out US President Donald Trump. The wrestler-turned-actor believes President Trump shouldn't be sending out the army to handle protesters.

In a video posted to his Instagram page, Dwayne said: "There is military force that has been deployed on our own people. Looters, yes. Criminals, absolutely. But on protesters, who are begging and pleading, our protesters who are in pain? You would be surprised how people in pain would respond when you say, 'I care about you.' When you say to them, 'I'm listening to you.'"

On his caption, Dwayne asked: "Where is our compassionate leader? The leader who unifies and inspires our country at our most painful time when we need it most."

George Floyd died after a white police officer stopped his airflow with a knee to his neck for almost nine minutes.

Earlier, Legit.ng reported that US celebs, Madonna, Colin Kaepernick and Cardi B condemned George Floyd's killing as racist and discriminatory.

Colin said: “When civility leads to death, revolting is the only logical reaction. The cries for peace will rain down, and when they do, they will land on deaf ears, because your violence has brought this resistance. We have the right to fight back!”

Many believe the killing was racially motivated as George was black and the officers involved were white.

Cardi B advised US citizens to use their vote wisely, so as to ensure they put people in power who will act decisively against such injustices.
