Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson And His Family Test Positive For COVID-19

Dwayne Johnson and his family have all tested positive for COVID-19. The Rock revealed the news on Instagram yesterday. Dwayne Johnson shared that he and his wife, Lauren Hashian, and their daughters Jasmine, 4, and Tiana, 2, all have been sick with the virus. Thankfully, they are now feeling better. They have been dealing with it for the past two-and-a-half to three weeks. He said in his video, "I could tell you that this has been one of the most challenging and difficult things we have ever had to endure as a family, and for me, too, personally as well... And I've gone through some doozies in the past... Testing positive for COVID-19 is much different than overcoming nasty injuries, or being evicted, or even being broke, which I have been more than a few times," Dwayne Johnson said that he and his family contracted the virus from family friends, who he said are "devastated" that they unwittingly spread the virus. Dwayne Johnson said that while his daughters "bounced back" from the virus pretty quickly, he and his wife "had a rough go at it." So glad they are all better. You can watch his entire message below.

Stay disciplined. Boost your immune system. Commit to wellness. Wear your mask. Protect your family. Be strict about having people over your house or gatherings. Stay positive. And care for your fellow human beings. Stay healthy, my friends. DJ -- #controlthecontrollables

John Boyega Claims Disney "Sidelined" Diverse Characters

John Boyega is claiming that diverse characters in the Star Wars sequel trilogy were "pushed to the side" by Disney. John Boyega said, “They gave all the nuance to Adam Driver, all the nuance to Daisy Ridle.” John Boyega, who portrayed Finn in The Force Awakens, The Last Jedi and The Rise of Skywalker, said he feels that Disney also sidelined other characters of color, including Kelly Marie Tran as Rose. He said, "It's so difficult to maneuver... what I would say to Disney is do not bring out a black character, market them to be much more important in the franchise than they are and then have them pushed to the side. It's not good. I'll say it straight up."
