Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson may need to change his nickname.

The actor, producer and professional wrestler has been caught performing a humiliating and craven reverse ferret when he deleted a tweet praising his ‘namesake’ – Britain’s new prime minister Boris Johnson.

His original tweet went:

“Breaking: PM Boris Johnson is in fact my cousin [though we clearly look more like twins].

“Jokes aside, PM did say something in his speech I liked – ‘the people are our bosses’.

100% agree. The people/audience/consumer will always matter most. #ourboss.”

But a quarter of an hour’s worth of attacks from the usual leftist suspects, the Rock quickly turned to jello and deleted his tweet.

He replaced it with this abject climb-down:

As one disappointed fan commented:

Weak indeed.

Now all we need to do is work on that new nickname. ‘The Sponge’ has a nice, squishy feel about it. I also like my friend Toby Young’s ‘The Invertebrate.’.

But I think my favourite at the moment is simply ‘The Cuck’.
