Here's why you shouldn't call out The Rock on Twitter

The Rock is my fave, he is ShortList’s fave, he is your fave, he is everyone’s fave. Never met a soul who doesn’t like The Rock. So, as such, I think it’s fair to say that you want The Rock to like you back.

“Hey, I’m The Rock, and I like you.”

Imagine hearing that - imagine The Rock liking you, it would be the greatest. So, taking that into account, on the opposite side of things; it would be very bad if he didn’t like you. Nobody wants that, you don’t want to get on the wrong side of The Rock, not least because he is a very large man. Big old arms and legs, you don’t want to be on the receiving end of one of those bad boys, no siree.

Similarly, you also wouldn’t want to be the subject of his ire on Twitter - a digital Rock Bottom, no thanks. But unfortunately, one unlucky soul experienced exactly that this week, when he took to Twitter to cuss Rocky’s new flick Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle - like this:

But whoops, Dwayne was on hand to deliver a swift clap-back with devastating precision:

Ouch. Gotta smart that - turns out wrestling isn’t fake, after all.

Still, the recipient of that most pointed shutdown seems to have taken it in good spirits (and even nabbed himself another reply from The Rock himself, the lucky bar steward): 

I would read that entire handbook just so that I never ran the risk of offending The Rock ever again. Twice if need be. I’m memorising that sucker.
