Russia engaged in a military conflict with Ukraine and the world is taking notice. John Cena also stars in The Peacemaker, an HBO Max show that just got picked up for a second season. This timing was rather unfortunate, but Cena’s intention was probably coming from the right place.

This situation between Russia and the Ukraine sparked a ton of controversy. The Weeknd also got heat for tweeting out to hype his own project during a time like this. Sean Penn is also in the war-torn country filming a documentary.

John Cena simply tweeted out to summon powers like a “real like Peacemaker,” all the while including a hashtag to spark extra engagement. This tweet got plenty of engagement enough as it is.

If I could somehow summon the powers of a real life #Peacemaker I think this would be a great time to do so.


Cena still has the tweet up, and you can check it out below. Plenty of people commented on the tone deaf timing as well.

H Jenkins

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
