Johnson gifted his own custom-made truck to a Navy veteran from Culver City who is active in community causes and cares for his 75-year-old mother.
Johnson presented the truck to Oscar Rodriguez, who collapsed in grateful tears as he received the gift.
Johnson says he chose Rodriguez after holding a special screening for his new film “Red Notice” in a theater and then seeking out more details about people in the audience.
“I gathered as much information as I could about everyone in the audience and ultimately, Oscar’s story moved me.
Takes care of his 75 year old mom.
Leader at his church.
Provides support and meals for women victimized by domestic violence.
Proud & humble Navy veteran.
Kind human being.”
The Rock says the original plan was to gift Rodriguez the Porsche Taycan he drives in the movie – but Porsche said no. So instead he gave away his own personal custom truck.
Rodriguez responded on social media.
“I woke up today, counted my blessings,” he said. “It’s Thanksgiving. There’s just so much to be thankful for.”
“Just grateful that The Rock hooked me up with this whip. I’m gonna use it, baby. I’m gonna use it to encourage people and help people. And bring a lot of cheer to people. Rock, you the man.”
