Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson Wants This Hip-Hop Star to Be His Master

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson was recently asked a provocative question while doing press for his new movie, and his answer has caused a huge reaction on social media.

"What celebrity would you want to be a pet to?" an unidentified interviewer asked the star.

"Megan Thee Stallion," Johnson answered without hesitation in a clip that he posted Sunday on his Instagram page.

Johnson's video finds him discussing pets during interviews conducted as promotion for his new animated feature, DC League of Super-Pets. He was joined by co-star Kevin Hart, who said he would prefer acting great Denzel Washington as his master. When The Rock immediately answered that he'd like to be Megan's pet, Hart erupted into laughter.

After Johnson's quick answer, the interviewer said, "Oh, that's a good one. Why Megan Thee Stallion?"

"We don't need to talk about that," Johnson answered. "Okay?"

In the caption on his Instagram post, Johnson wrote a shoutout to Megan and Washington.

The Grammy-winning hip-hop star has yet to respond to Johnson's remarks, but many Instagram users weighed in on the humorous moment in the comments thread for The Rock's post.

"He ain't take no time to say it," wrote one person. Another user said, "He been waiting his whole life to be asked that question lmaooooo."

The clip has also been shared on Twitter, and users commenting on Johnson's reply caused his name to trend high on Monday.

"Not Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson saying he'll be Meg Thee Stallion dog when they asked him who celebrity dog he'll be. LMFAOOOOO I FEEL YOU MY BOY," said a Twitter user amused by the response.

"The quickness in which he answered that question...so very REAL of him," wrote another.

"Dwayne The Rock Johnson and Megan Thee Stallion interaction never crossed my mind as a possibility but it happened and in the funniest way possible," read one tweet.

Several commenters liked the idea of the two together, including one person who wrote, "The Rock and Megan the Stallion would make a cute couple."

As several people noted, the former wrestler is married. Johnson wed Lauren Hashian in 2019. The couple has two young children together, while Johnson also has an adult daughter, Simone Johnson, from a previous marriage. Earlier this year, Simone Johnson announced she had signed a contract with WWE to follow in her father's footsteps into the professional wrestling world.
