“The Rock” faces criticism for saying he was “honored” that the 1st Armored Division named a tank after him

The 1st Armored Division at Fort Bliss named one of its tanks after Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. “‘If you smell what America’s Tank Division is cooking!’” the 1st Armored Division tweeted.

The tank included the words “Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson” on the barrel of its cannon.

In response, Johnson said he was “honored” to have the most advanced tank in the world named after him.

“I’m sending a salute of respect & gratitude to the Blackhawk Squadron1st Armored Division for the honor of naming their tank (the most advanced in the world) Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson,” the star captioned an Instagram post of the tank. “Heavy duty, [expletive], sexy … and built to take care of business—but most importantly, thank you all for your service. Grateful to the bone.”

Not all of Johnson’s fans liked the idea of his name being associated with a tank.

“That’s not something to be very proud of because it’ll be your name on that tank that’ll kill innocent people,” one person claimed.

“Well I really like you as a person and everything but what is a tank meant for? If it is to take the lives of human beings and others then it is not admirable… I hope it won’t be used… May God bless you all … Peace and Love,” one Instagram user said in response.

“Not sure having a destructive weapon named after you is such a great honor,” a fan claimed.

But others suggested the criticism was unwarranted, with several calling the move “awesome.”

“Amazing! And people unfollowing you because of this? Keep on keeping on my man! You sir are awesome,” wrote another.

Another said they would “love to have a weapon named after me.”

Johnson has ignored the backlash on social media.

According to the Military Times Johnson has not commented because:
