The Godfather blasts The Rock for the inaccurate depiction of his character
The Young Rock sitcom has provided insight into the lives of the biggest WWE superstars alongside The Rock during their rise in the Attitude Era. But it seems that the former WWE superstar Charles Wright aka The Godfather isn’t fond of the depiction of his character.
In a recent Attitude-Era podcast, the Godfather shared his distaste with the depiction of his character in the Young Rock sitcom and isn’t fond of the casting choice for him. The Godfather explained that he is 6 foot 7, while the Rock is 6 foot 4, so casting a 6 foot 1 actor to play The Godfather was disrespectful to him. He expressed his frustration by saying,
“F**k Dwayne ‘The Rock Johnson. That Mot**rf**ker should never have cello f**king green portray me. I’m 6 foot 7, ok, and they portrayed me as somebody who’s 6 foot 1. So, f**k the Rock, f**k him, m**herf**ker, f**k that ba**ard, that mo**erf**ker f*cking 3 inches shorter than me and had me 5 inches shorter than me. F**k The Rock,”
The Young Rock show follows the Rock through different periods of his life and also gives us an insight into the world of wrestling. But it wasn’t only the Godfather, who found the casting choices inaccurate, as fans attacked the show in a hilarious way for their casting blunders.
