John Cena Faces Backlash For Using Ukraine Crisis To Promote His TV Show

John Cena Faces Backlash For Using Ukraine Crisis To Promote His TV Show

The actor was called ‘insensitive’ after he appeared to respond to the news of Russia invading Ukraine by promoting his HBO series ‘Peacemaker.’

John Cena was slammed after he appeared to use the Ukraine crisis to promote his HBO show. The backlash began after the 44-year-old professional wrestler/actor took to his Twitter on Thursday (Feb. 24) to respond to the news of Russia invading Ukraine, which was quickly condemned by President Joe Biden and other world leaders. “If I could somehow summon the powers of a real life #Peacemaker, I think this would be a great time to do so,” John wrote, referencing the superhero series in which he plays the titular role.

The post quickly went viral, with social media followers calling out John’s tweet for being tone deaf. “Great time to hashtag your show for trending purposes. Very insensitive don’t you think?” one fan wrote. Another shared, “I’m just saying there is never an appropriate moment to say this, especially now.” Yet another posted, “I understand the sentiment but using this moment to plug the show is a bit… bleh.”

A separate Twitter user went so far as to suggest John use his platform to help the victims of the invasion.  “I hope you didn’t mean to come off as disrespectful by using this to promote your show. You don’t have the powers of peacemaker but you do have the power of money and status. Please donate to help Ukraine or spread the link to donate.”

And as John’s character of Peacemaker in the HBO program is an unlikely hero, often using questionable tactics to successfully complete his missions, one follower took him to task by tweeting, “I feel like I shouldn’t have to explain this to you but the power of peacemaker is murdering people.”

On Friday morning, the President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky, revealed 137 civilians have been killed so far by Russian military personnel invading the country. In his speech, he called those who died “heroes” and said hundreds more have been wounded. “They’re killing people and turning peaceful cities into military targets. It’s foul and will never be forgiven,” Zelensky added,

Monica Bellucci is pleased with her new relationship after a difficult split

Monica Bellucci, one of the world’s prettiest actresses, is in love and a new relationship. True, the woman acknowledges that the split with Vincent Cassel was really tough for her.

But the famous movie actress is now happy and free of thoughts about her previous romance. True, fans of the duo continue to remind her of their relationship. According to starhit.ru, the representatives of the cinema themselves agreed to separate amicably and politely, retaining a wonderful connection and respect.

While Mr. Cassel enjoys his connection with his wife, Monica, who has just turned 20, is considerably more wary about her new romance. And, after initially refusing to comment on the novel, she has now confirmed that she is no longer single.

The 54-year-old star is not only still working in the film industry, but he has also preserved the position of sex symbol. Her social media photographs are still being remarked on by adoring followers. True, the actress does not highlight this and has stated repeatedly that exterior beauty has never been her top priority.

Despite the very traumatic divorce, she keeps working, raising her two girls, and bringing up her new love on a regular basis. She mentioned it in the Instagram comments.

But for the time being, she merely claims she is able to believe in love and trust her spouse again. She previously stated that she felt disoriented and dissatisfied following a two-decade romance. In an interview with Paris Match, the actress stated that a completely new and fantastic time in her life has begun. And, while the magazine just hinted at the new relationship, it showed that happiness is also dependent on a new crush.

Monica Bellucci ended her relationship with a much younger lover: “We will be friends until the end of our lives.”

The famous Italian actress Monica Bellucci’s romantic connection with the young artist Nicolas Lefebvre took an unexpected turn. The 54-year-old actor and the 36-year-old artist are no longer together. Ms. Bellucci revealed the split in an interview with a French newspaper.

According to galpost.com, the actress claimed that while the couple’s love connection has ended, they intend to remain friends. Ms. Bellucci did not give a reason for the breakup, according to galpost.com.

“Of course, Nicholas and I adore one other. He was a great teacher to me. He is a gifted individual with exceptional artistic ability. Unfortunately, our connection will alter from now on; we will stay friends until the end of our lives,” M. Bellucci said.

This is the Italian actress’s first meaningful relationship after her sad breakup with French actor Vincent Cassel. The young artist’s romantic relationship is thought to have begun in December, when the paparazzi managed to picture the two meeting surreptitiously. There was no mistake about it: the couple kissed on the street and exchanged pleasant feelings.

Bellucci and Lefebvre made their first public appearance together in March, at an event in Madrid. The performance of the duo has piqued the interest of the international media. According to M. Bellucci, the relationship’s secrecy drew her and N. Lefebvre very close. She and her ex-lover shared similar viewpoints and hobbies, including a love of travel.

“I’ve been dating the same person for a long time, and everything is OK.” His job requires him to travel extensively over the world. That’s why he completely understands me and approves of my lifestyle. “I am overjoyed,” M. Bellucci previously stated.

It is only fitting to recall that the actress, regarded as one of the most beautiful women in the world, was married twice. Claudio Carlos Basso, an Italian photographer, was Bellucci’s first husband. In the 1990s, the pair married and divorced in 1994. On the shooting of the film “L’appartement,” M. Bellucci met French actor V. Cassel. The actors’ wedding took place in 1999. The couple was the parents of two girls. Elder Deva is an exact replica of her famous mother. M. Bellucci and V. Cassel announced their divorce in August 2013.
