“Pain and Gain” director Michael Bay issued a statement in response to comments he made about Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson missing the premiere of the film due to surgery and that he should “grow up and stop wrestling 300 pound men.”
Bay added, “Wrestling fans, it was a joke said on Entertainment Tonight–with a laugh. You can see the clip for yourselves. The most important person to see the on-air joke was Dwayne. I love seeing The Rock wrestle. I hope he wrestles 10 more years. I joked on air because Dwayne was not at our LA premiere due to his injury.”
The Rock also issued the following tweet in response as well.
