Dwayne Johnson spoke in support of Hawaii’s anti-telescope protesters during an appearance on Wednesday’s “Tonight Show”.
Johnson, who grew up in Hawaii, explained how people were protesting the building of a huge telescope, expected to be the size of a football stadium, at a sacred site on Mauna Kea.
He told Jimmy Fallon, “There was some trust that was breached between [native Hawaiians] and the state and the people that are trying to build the telescope.
“This mountain is their church, and it would be like building on their church… This is so much bigger than a telescope being built. This is humanity — these are human beings whose hearts are hurting.”
“When you have human beings who are hurting, that’s our indication that you’ve gotta stop – let’s be empathetic, let’s be considerate, let’s take care of our people.”
Johnson’s appearance on the show also saw him tease some possible cameos in his latest movie, “Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw”.
Judging by his facial expressions, Ryan Reynolds and Kevin Hart may well have bagged themselves a part in the flick.
