The Saudi Arabian controversy has become an international crisis in just a matter of few days and now the Rock has also been dragged into this conversation.
6 months ago, the Rock made a post from his Instagram account about having dinner with Saudi Arabia’s crown prince and the Hollywood star called it a pleasant experience.
Oliver Darcy who is a CNN reporter uncovered this post and tweeted the Great one about it, saying that his Instagram post didn’t age well:

Replying to it, the former World Champion said that he is surprised Oliver will post this and called it a silly and clickbait post, asking him to go back and read his words:
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

Oliver responded to this post as well and accused the Great One of playing a role in Prince’s PR campaign and asked if his views have changed with time:
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

The Rock has not responded to this tweet yet but it wouldn’t be a surprise if he releases a statement. We’ll keep you posted if he replies to the tweet.
