Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson takes down pool pic of his daughter after being dad-shamed.

People thought the pic was "inappropriate"😒

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is a proud dad to three daughters. And he has no qualms about using social media to express his adoration for them.


IS THERE SOMETHING IN MY EYE?!

But even the best, most loving, and chiseled dads are no match for the judgmental eyes of the internet. Yesterday morning, The Rock posted a photo of himself and his 3-year-old daughter Jasmine at the pool—her perched on the edge, about to jump off, and him waiting to catch her, Yahoo reports.


It sounds adorable, but most of us will never get to see it. Because the famous dad was forced to delete the photo after throngs of commenters criticized him for the pic because Jasmine, who is THREE, is not wearing a bathing suit."I'd never post a pic of my child naked in a pool on social media...I understand the message that is being conveyed but there are some messed up people out there," one commenter wrote, according to Yahoo.

Other comments reportedly included: "Why would you expose a young child's body to millions of people?" "Why is she naked though?" and "I love the Rock but this pic isn't necessary for social media. They made bathing suits for a reason."

Other commenters came to The Rock's defense, pointing out that it's perfectly normal and not sexual at all for little kids to not wear a bathing suit while swimming. One commenter pointed out that it's the norm in Polynesian culture. "Those who are sexualizing this picture of his daughter because she is swimming with no clothes on obviously don't know what it's like to grow up in the islands or in a Polynesian house hold," they wrote. "This is very normal and not sexual in any way with our culture."

Here are more commenters defending his not-creepy choice to post the photo:


Still, I respect his choice to remove the photo. Because no dad wants to be accused of putting his daughter's safety and well-being in jeopardy. The internet may be harsh. But The Rock's love for his family is not.



On the bright side, at least it's a dad and not a mom being shamed for once! Good job, internet a**holes with too much free time, on smashing that glass ceiling.

Brace yourselves, folks, because this is almost too friggin' adorable to handle.

A 911 call can be a scary thing, and an emergency call from a dad having chest pains and trouble breathing is no exception. But thankfully, an exchange between that dad's 5-year-old daughter and 911 dispatcher Jason Bonham turned out to be more humor than horror. If you missed hearing the recording that has repeatedly gone viral since 2010, you have to hear it now. It's perfectly timeless.

Twitter user Matt, who goes by the name @SixthFormPoet, shared a dark love story on Twitter that's been read by nearly 600,000 people. It starts in a graveyard and feels like it could be the premise for a Tim Burton film.

While it's hard to verify whether the story is true, Matt insists that it's real, so we'll believe him.

Can the teens do literally anything without being blasted? Apparently not...

Katie Cornetti and Marissa Bordas, two Pittsburgh teens, were involved in a car crash. After taking a sharp turn on a winding road, the car flipped twice, then landed on its side. The girls said later on that they weren't on their phones at the time. The cause of the crash was because the tires on Bordas' car were mounted improperly.

The girls were wearing their seatbelts and were fine, aside from a few bruises. However, they were trapped in the car for about 20 minutes, so to pass the time while they waited for help, they decided to make a TikTok video. They made sure they were totally fine before they started recording.

Approximately 10% of the population is left-handed, and the balance between lefties and righties has been the same for almost 5,000 years. People used to believe that left-handed people were evil or unlucky. The word "sinister" is even derived from the Latin word for "left."

In modern times, the bias against lefties for being different is more benign – spiral notebooks are a torture device, and ink gets on their hands like a scarlet letter. Now, a new study conducted at the University of Oxford and published in Brain is giving left-handers some good news. While left-handers have been struggling with tools meant for right-handers all these years, it turns out, they actually possess superior verbal skills.

Researchers looked at the DNA of 400,000 people in the U.K. from a volunteer bank. Of those 400,000 people, 38,332 were southpaws. Scientists were able to find the differences in genes between lefties and righties, and that these genetic variants resulted in a difference in brain structure, too. "It tells us for the first time that handedness has a genetic component," Gwenaëlle Douaud, joint senior author of the study and a fellow at Oxford's Wellcome Centre for Integrative Neuroimaging, told the BBC.
