The Rock Says He Was Very Close To Laying The Smack Down On A Producer During The Oscars

Remember how Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson went viral for his tremendous reaction to the Oscars screwing up the Best Picture winner? If not, check him out on the far right-hand side of this photo…

That amazing reaction, people’s eyebrow and all, led to many, including myself, to speculating as to what exactly was going on inside his head. Because it looked like The Rock was about ready to check someone into The Smackdown Hotel.

Turns out that our speculation wasn’t that far off as The Rock took to Instagram to explain EXACTLY what was going through his mind at the time…

You can literally see my wheels spinnin’ on whether or not I should hit the stage and take down an Oscars producer who I thought went rogue and was trying to sabotage our final moment of the night as La La Land was accepting for Best Picture. Seconds before this I saw out of the corner of my eye, the producer saying loudly, “NO IT’S MOONLIGHT, the winner is MOONLIGHT!” as he walked up onto the stage. When he walked on stage, I remember sitting up and saying to @laurenhashianofficial, “What the f*cks he doing?”. She grabbed my arm and said, “Oh my God, they made a mistake”. The rest was history. In crazy moments like that, we need leaders to step up and take charge… I give La La Land producer, Jordan Horowitz much respect for stepping up to the mic and calling the Moonlight filmmakers and actors to the stage to accept their award. Thankfully, Jordan gave us the clarity we needed, because as much as I love and adore Meryl, I was willing to rumble over her to take down the producer going rogue. No business like show business. #Oscars #ThatLook #MattDamonWasReadyToGoBourne #IWasReadyToGoHobbs #LetsDoThis

That line — “as I love and adore Meryl, I was willing to rumble over her to take down the producer going rogue” — and those hashtags, are why so many want to see The Rock run for President in 2020.
