Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is now the most followed man in America on Instagram


Dwayne Johnson is celebrating being a major social media influencer.

On Thursday, the 48-year-old reached the milestone of 200 million Instagram followers and became the most followed man in America on the platform.

To commemorate the occasion, The Rock turned to, where else, Instagram.

“THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for giving me the space to speak my truth,” Johnson captioned the four minute clip. “You have my word, I’ll always do my best to speak my truth with dignity, respect, empathy and GRATITUDE.”

He added: “And the result of speaking my truth is I was just informed, I’ve surged past and blown by 200 MILLION FOLLOWERS on Instagram and over 300 MILLION FOLLOWERS across all platforms.”

Johnson noted this made him the #1 followed man in America on Instagram, the #1 followed American man in the world, “and most importantly, the #1 daddy at home.”

Decked out in a white shirt and bow tie, the “Jumanji” star finished by toasting with a bottle of his tequila brand, Teremana.

“Love you guys, I always got your back and let’s keep rockin’,” he told his more than 200 million followers.

The accomplishment comes just days after Johnson made his first public endorsement of a political candidate.

In an Instagram video, the former WWE star expressed his support for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris in the upcoming 2020 election.

“Vice President Biden and Sen. Harris are the best choice to lead our country, and I am endorsing them to become president and vice president,” Johnson said.

The Rock’s 200 million followers also make him the third most followed person on Instagram worldwide.

Portuguese soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo has the largest overall Instagram following in the world with 238 million, reported BrandWatch. While Ariana Grande is next with 203 million.
