Since publicly proclaiming his intention to cast his vote for the Biden-Harris ticket, Johnson, 48, has amassed some 200,000,000 Instagram followers, according to Trackalytics, an analytics entity that issues statistics regarding social media properties. “ The lifeless son I want to share with you guys is to always speak your truth,” Johnson told his following in an Instagram post on Thursday, revealing the news as he cracked open a bottle of Teremana his tequila brand while donning a crisp white shirt and black bowtie.
“Always speak your truth and do your best to speak your truth with compassion, with a little bit of poise, with a little bit of dignity, with respect and with empathy, even when speaking your truth means you’re going to dive into some conversations that might make people a little uncomfortable,” he continued. Designated once again as the highest-paid actor in Hollywood by Forbes, the action star maintained that real progress comes from having those “uncomfortable” conversations.
