“Today is the day! The premiere episode of my new podcast ‘What Now?’ with my ridiculously good-looking first guest… Dwayne @TheRock Johnson! (His words, not mine. But… I guess also my words now too, as I’m not about to argue with The Rock) Just watch the episode! … or else! (Again, his words).”

Mzansi blasts Trevor Noah for hosting The Rock, who hinted his support for Isreal

The launch didn’t go as planned for the award-winning children’s book author as he was slammed for hosting a man who showed compassion for an apartheid state in the ongoing genocide between Palestine and Isreal:

siminou5 said:

“Being South African you should understand apartheid better than us all. Talk about Palestine.”

azhar_s94 urged:

“Use your voice brother! As a fellow South African, I see not a single word from you calling out the apartheid state of Isnotreal. Make a difference!”

laila_alroz asked:

“Didn’t you pay your internet bill recently? Cause I think you are disconnected from what is going on in Gaza.”

ayeshaghaffar commented:

“The Rock supports an apartheid state, call him out in it!”

isis_naucratis asked:

“Did you two chat about the US-funded genocide of Palestine by apartheid Isreal??

jannahjanit reminded him:

“Oh, Trevor. You seem to have forgotten your roots. Free Palestine, speak out against genocide.”

reemtastic1 said:

“The Rock supports an apartheid state, Trevor!”

faiza_essa_artistry was disappointed:

“Ya, no hey! Your silence is deafening. I regret coming to watch you when you were in SA.

neju_jo commented:

“The Rock has literally turned into a rock in our hearts. I hate to see him. Free Palestine.”
