Dwayne Johnson is apologizing for the backlash he and Oprah Winfrey received after launching a fund to aid victims of the Maui wildfires. The fund, which launched with an initial $10 million donation from Johnson and Winfrey, asked members of the public to pitch in to support $1,200 per month donations to those displaced by the wildfires.

Some people criticized Johnson and Winfrey for asking for donations when they themselves are extremely wealthy. In an Instagram video posted over the weekend, Johnson acknowledged the criticism and said that he understands.

“When we first launched the fund, there was some backlash that came with launching the fund,” Johnson said. “And I want to address and acknowledge that backlash right now and here’s what I have to say about that: I get it and I completely understand.”

Johnson also said that he has learned his lesson and that he will be more thoughtful in the future.

“I’ve never launched a fund before,” he said. “Trust me, I’m a quick study and learn my lessons fast. I totally get it and I appreciate you.”

In the caption of the video, Johnson thanked his fans for their feedback and said that he is grateful for their support.

“You always tell me the truth, good or bad,” he wrote. “I’ll always appreciate and protect that straight talk between us.”

Johnson and Winfrey’s Maui Wildfire Fund has helped thousands of people who were displaced by the wildfires. The fund has provided financial assistance, food, and other resources to those affected by the disaster.
