Nikki Bella Explains Why She Received Backlash for Supporting Book About The Rock

Nikki Bella is explaining why she’s facing backlash for supporting a new book about Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.

The book, “The Rock: Through the Lens: His Life, His Movies, His World” is by Nikki‘s pal Hiram Garcia and she was supporting him when she posted about it.

“We know as authors … how much work you put into making your first book; to any book you have,” Nikki said on her podcast. “And the minute you get your first book published and it hit shelves, how proud you are. You’re just so excited. It’s a huge accomplishment. So when I got his in the mail, I just remember that feeling when we dropped Incomparable.”

“Then I looked at social media and all of a sudden I was like, ‘What the f–k?’ I’m like, how did this turn into a political debate?” Nikki continued, adding that there were comments on the post like, “BOYCOTT ALL BELLA PRODUCTS!!!!” and “Oh noo! TRUMP 2020.”

“I’m not even thinking — of course, the book is about The Rock [or] photography about The Rock — [and] he just endorsed Joe Biden,” she said. “First of all, that never crossed my mind. Not once. It sucks that you can support someone — support a friend and their amazing accomplishment — and how it turns into negativity and you get this backlash and it turns into something so political.”

The Rock did publicly endorse a candidate in the Presidential Election for the first time ever and that candidate is Joe Biden.
