Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has also expressed his support for those protesting the construction of the telescope. He appeared on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon where he said:
There was some trust that was breached between [native Hawai’ans] and the state and the people that are trying to build the telescope. … This mountain is their church, and it would be like building on their church.
This is so much bigger than a telescope being built. This is humanity, these are human beings whose hearts are hurting, and I think any time situations like that come up. … When you have human beings who are hurting, any culture around the world, that’s our indication that we gotta stop. Let’s be considerate, let’s be empathetic, and let’s always take care of our people. At the end of the day it always comes down to that. Taking care of the people.
