(PresidentialWire.com)- Cairlyn Jenner, the transgender Olympian who ran as a Republican candidate to replace Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom last year, has hit out at wrestling superstar Dwayne Johnson for allegedly deleting transphobic tweets.
Johnson, better known by his wrestling name “The Rock,” was accused by Donald Trump Jr. of deleting tweets that contained transphobic comments.
Trump Jr. shared a screenshot of Johnson telling another Twitter user in 2011:
“It’s not our fault you’re turning tranny tricks to put yourself thru nursing school.”
Wow, @TheRock, you can’t just try to quietly delete transphobic attacks without giving a groveling apology and expect to ever work in Hollywood again.
Do @UnderArmour, @Ford, @Apple, @Netflix and the rest of his sponsors/partners agree with this hateful rhetoric? pic.twitter.com/tkS0jpv5gw

Trump Jr., the eldest son of former President Donald Trump, called The Rock out and said that he “can’t just try to quietly delete transphobic attacks without giving a groveling apology and expect to ever work in Hollywood again.”
Obviously being sarcastic, the son of the former president asked if his partners Under Armour, Ford, Apple, and Netflix “agree with this hateful rhetoric.”
Jenner soon picked up on the story and accused him of being hypocritical.
“Hmmmm… the double standard is real,” Jenner wrote. “@TheRock I love you but cmon dude…let’s be real. Cancel culture has got to go. Use your platform.”

The comments come after The Rock first gave support to popular podcaster Joe Rogan, before then withdrawing that support after extreme-left Twitter users shared clips of Rogan using the N-word in non-derogatory ways. The Rock sided with those extreme-left activists and denounced Rogan.
How can he denounce Rogan for clips taken out of context, while also quietly deleting tweets in which he made actually insensitive remarks?
