John Cena loved BTS' donation to the Black Lives Matter movement so much, he decided to do the same thing and allegedly donated $40,000 anonymously to a GoFundMe account for the family of the late Shad Gaspard, according to Forbes. Cena, who is admittedly one of BTS' biggest fans continued the good gesture started by the BTS Army, sharing the announcement on Twitter where he revealed he's "happy to join" the K-pop band in the to fight against racial and social injustice.
Cena has been active on social media when it comes to speaking out against racism. In a tweet that was posted on May 31, Cena wrote: "We all have flaws. Facing our flaws is a very difficult process but is the only way to effectively grow. If an individual, group, title or idea ever gets to a point of assuming flawlessness, accountability is lost and positive change becomes next to impossible." In another tweet that was posted on Tuesday, Cena stated: "Change is never easy because it takes us admitting that our efforts and methods may be flawed to a point of severe distortion. 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."
Cena has been a very busy man, scheduled to be featured in three films by the end of 2021. He next film, Project X-Traction, is slated to be released this year while F9 and The Suicide Squad will be released next year. And while Cena is no longer wrestling full-time he did compete in WrestleMania 36 in April, losing to Bray Wyatt in a Firefly Funhouse match.
