The actor stated in a video post on his social media channels that the United States is “crippled” and “kneeling asking to be heard and asking for change.”
The video message that was released early Thursday has garnered more than 7 million views.
Johnson continues asking: “Where is our compassionate leader who is going to step forward to our kneeling country and reach out a hand and say, ‘Get up, stand with me because I have you. I hear you, I am listening to you. And you have my word that I will do everything in my power, until the day of my death, my last breath, to do everything possible to create the change that is needed, to normalize equality, because Black Lives Matter. ” Where are you?”
Along with the video he wrote in the caption, “Because we are all here. Perhaps one day that galvanizing leader will emerge. Either way, the process of change has already begun.”
