Dwayne Johnson Breaking Diet to Support Sick Fan
Dwayne Johnson will break his healthy diet for a Rice Krispie treat binge this weekend in honor of a seriously ill fan.
The Moana star got a call from the Make-A-Wish Foundation this week asking if he could visit 13-year-old Tatsui in Hawaii, but Johnson couldn’t leave the Las Vegas, Nevada set of his TV series Ballers, so he did the next best thing and on Wednesday, he posted a touching video to Instagram just for Tatsui.
In front of a stunning night time Las Vegas view, Johnson said, “You’re a big fan of mine…Tatsui but look, you’re there in Hawaii and I’m in Las Vegas. I wish we could hang out and talk like your wish was. I want you to know I know so much about you.
“You love chicken, I love chicken. Your favorite color is red, I love red. You love to play Call of Duty, I suck at Call of Duty. You love pancakes, I love pancakes. Your favorite treat is Rice Krispie treats.”
Kind Johnson then smiled and added, “I want you to know that even though I can’t see you and be with you… that you’re one of the coolest kids I’ve ever spoken to. You are stronger than I will ever be.”
Pausing to choke back tears, the movie star finished strong with a promise to his young fan.
“Stay strong and this weekend I’m going to have Rice Krispie treats in your honor. Love you brother, stay strong.”
Taitusi this message is for you. Make a Wish just called me and I wish I could be there with you in Hawaii right now. Even at 13yrs old you’re already way stronger than I’ll ever be. Ever. Even though we’ve never met, I can already tell you’re one of the coolest and most amazing kids I’ve ever talked to like this. I just want you to know how amazing and special of young boy you are. You inspire every single person around you right now. Including me. God bless you and your family and yes I’m gonna go crazy on rice crispy treats this weekend for my cheat meal in your honor ????
