The Rock Speaks On The Baltimore Riots

If you're looking to follow an example, there aren't many better people to follow than The Rock. Here's a man who at 24 years old only had seven dollars to his name, but just two and a half years later was the WWE Champion. Today, he is the wealthiest professional wrestler in history and a bonafide Hollywood superstar.

The city of Baltimore is going through a very tough time, as riots have ensued over the past few days following the funeral of 25-year-old Freddie Gray, a young black man who died while in police custody this month.

Dwayne Johnson has given his thoughts on the situation, which hopefully reaches a peaceful conclusion soon.

This won't reach everyone but it may reach a few. Destroying the city isn't the answer. I know what it's like to be down and frustrated...

But chaos won't get you heard. We need to honor the Gray family's wishes, end the violence and see real leaders emerge... — Dwayne Johnson (@TheRock) April 28, 2015

Ain't preachin' here, just sending word. #Baltimore
