John Cena recently shared that he donated $1 Million to the Black Lives Matter movement as part of the #MatchedAMillion act, which has been viral worldwide.
John Cena, 43, is one of the latest celebrities to give a “generous donation” of $1 million to the Black Lives Matter movement. The viral campaign was held with the aim of collecting a million to support the protests opposing the racial inequality, which had BTS and their fans donating a total of $2 million up to now.
John Cena shared that his act was indeed inspired by famous K-pop boyband BTS. The professional wrestler announced his donation in a tweet on June 8 and gave a shout-out to the music group and their fans while he was at it.
“Very happy to join #BTSARMY in efforts to match @BTS_twt tremendous donation #ARMYMatch1M,” his tweet said.
The #MatchedAMillion initiative appears after the 1$ million-donation of BTS, which was matched by their devoted fans known as Army.
He once showed tweets that proved he’s a true fan of V, J-Hope, RM, Jin, Jimin, Jungkook, and Suga “One of the many reasons I respect BTS … thank you #BTS and BTSARMY,” the message read.
Although he didn’t mention whether the Black Lives Matter movement could be capable of changing or fixing anything, the professional wrestler did take to Twitter again on June 9 to talk about change. “Change is never easy because it takes us admitting that our efforts and methods may be flawed to a point of severe distortion,” he wrote. “Be brave and open minded in these moments. Welcome ideas and limit excuses. Change is uncomfortable but can yield much more joy for all in the long run.”
