The Rock Surpasses 200 Million Followers On Instagram, Now The Most Followed Man In America
The Rock is winning in more ways than one.
Instagram has already been good to The Rock as he dethroned Kylie Jenner as the highest-paid celebrity on the app in July. He makes more than $1 million for each of his posts.
He is also #1 on the highest-paid actors list after earning $87.5 million this year.
Now, the wrestler turned actor has broken a new record as the most followed man in the country on Instagram.
He celebrated surpassing 200 million followers on the social media app with a video, stressing the importance of speaking your truth.
“I wanted to share with you guys the life lessons that I have learned these past couple of weeks… Always speak your truth and do your best to speak your truth with compassion, a little bit of poise, a little bit of dignity, with respect, and with empathy. Even when speaking your truth means you’re gonna dive into some conversations that might make people a little uncomfortable.”

Here’s what I’ve learned these past few weeks and maybe, you can find value in this take away and apply it to your own life. Always speak your truth. And when you do speak your truth – do your best to speak with dignity, compassion, respect, poise and empathy. Even when the conversations get uncomfortable – when you approach with respect and care – on the other side of discomfort – is clarity and progress. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for giving me the space to speak my truth. You have my word, I’ll always do my best to speak my truth with dignity, respect, empathy and GRATITUDE. That’s my lesson I’ve learned. 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 – officially becoming/ The #1 followed man in America. The #1 followed American man in the world. And most importantly, the #1 daddy at home.

His comments come after he received backlash for endorsing Joe Biden and Kamala Harris for President and VP. It was his first time publicly endorsing a presidential candidate.
Progress takes courage, humanity, empathy, strength, KINDNESS & RESPECT.
