Dwayne Johnson Encourages Maui Natives and Workers Amid Devastating Wildfire
In a heartfelt message, Dwayne Johnson offered words of encouragement to the residents and workers of wildfire-ridden Maui. The 51-year-old superstar, known for his acting and wrestling career, took to Instagram on Sunday to address the tragic blaze that has tragically claimed the lives of at least 93 people and left a town in ruins.
Sharing his thoughts with his massive following of 388 million on Instagram, Johnson expressed his deep sadness over the unfolding events. He also urged his fans to contribute to the relief efforts by directing them to the Hawaiʻi Community Foundation for donations.
Dwayne Johnson, who spent a significant part of his upbringing in Hawaii, spoke with genuine emotion in the video, conveying, “Hello, everyone. I’m aware that by now, people all around the world have witnessed the extensive destruction and devastation that has struck our beloved Hawaiian islands, particularly our cherished Maui.”
He continued, “My heart aches profoundly due to these circumstances, and I know that many of you share in this sentiment.”
Known for his role as Black Adam, the actor revealed that he has been closely following the developments on the islands. As the wildfire wreaked havoc, residents were compelled to evacuate, seeking refuge in nearby hotels or even leaving the islands in search of safety.
