Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has shown his strong support for the SAG-AFTRA strike by making a significant contribution to the SAG-AFTRA Foundation Relief Fund.

According to Variety, Johnson’s donation, amounting to seven figures, is the largest individual contribution in the history of the foundation. This generous act has the potential to provide much-needed financial assistance to numerous actors who are currently participating in the ongoing strike.

The SAG-AFTRA strike began on July 13, 2023, with actors demanding livable wages and safe working conditions from the studios. Johnson’s substantial donation comes as a show of solidarity and sends a powerful message to others about the urgency of the situation.

Courtney B. Vance, the president of the SAG-AFTRA Foundation, expressed gratitude and admiration for The Rock’s gesture. He described their interaction as a “love fest” and emphasized that Johnson’s support serves as an encouragement for others to step up and join the cause.


As the strike continues, Johnson’s contribution is likely to inspire others to follow suit and show their solidarity with the actors fighting for better working conditions and compensation.
