Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has stepped forward to support Rebecca Ferguson after she revealed facing bullying on set. Taking to social media, Johnson expressed his disappointment on the matter while praising Ferguson.

He commented on a clip of her interview, stating, “Hate seeing this but love seeing her stand up to bulls–t,” and went on to praise Ferguson as his “guardian angel sent from heaven” during their time on the set of their ‘Hercules’. “I love that woman. I’d like to find out who did this,” he added.

Rebecca Ferguson opens up about being bullied on set

Johnson’s response comes in the wake of Ferguson’s revelations about facing mistreatment from an unnamed male co-star on a set. During a Tuesday episode of the “Reign with Josh Smith” podcast, Ferguson recounted the distressing experience. “I did a film with an absolute idiot of a co-star and this human being was being so insecure and angry because this person couldn’t get the scenes out. And I think I was so vulnerable and uncomfortable that I got screamed at and I would cry walking off set.”

Ferguson went on to reveal how powerless she felt because the unnamed person was a lead actor in the film and “No. 1” on the call sheet. “This person would literally look at me in front of the whole crew and say, ‘You call yourself an actor? This is what I have to work with?’ I stood there just breaking,” she elaborated. “This person was No. 1 on the call sheet, there was no safety net for me. No one had my back.”

However, Ferguson eventually confronted the actor, saying, “You get off my set. You can F off. I’m gonna work towards a tennis ball. I never want to see you again.”

Ferguson got brushed off by the producers

Despite Ferguson standing up for herself, producers weren’t as supportive. They allegedly told her, “You can’t do this to No. 1. We have to let this person be on set.” The Swedish actress added, “And I said, ‘The person can turn around and I can act to the back of the head.’ And I did. I was so scared. I feel it now when I’m saying it.”

Finally, Ferguson discussed the situation with the director, who allegedly told her, “You’re right. I am not taking care of everyone else. I’m trying to fluff this person because it’s so unstable. It was great from that moment, but it took so long for me to get to that,” she concluded.
