Hollywood star Dwayne Johnson is in no mood to allow bad Baywatch reviews bring him down: The 45-year-old-actor, who is usually very positive and diplomatic, took to his Twitter page to share his views on the negative reviews for his latest film, Baywatch. Baywatch marks the Hollywood debut of Priyanka Chopra.

The San Andreas star wrote, “Yay positive upticks. Fans LOVE the movie. Critics HATE it. What a glaring disconnect. People just want to laugh & have fun. #Baywatch.”

But, he did not stop there and later showed his displeasure with the critics. He shared, “Oh boy, critics had their venom & knives ready ??. Fans LOVE the movie. Huge positive scores. Big disconnect w/ critics & people. #Baywatch.”

Johnson followed it up with a video showing various fans talking about how much they loved the film, adding, “Fans across the country havin’ a BLAST & LOVING #Batwatch. Veryyy happy audience = best part of my job.”

The film has fared very poorly with critics, currently standing at a 19% rating on Rotten Tomatoes amidst judgements that the film is “shallow” and “misguided”.

Johnson stars alongside Zac Efron, Alexandra Daddario, and Priyanka Chopra in the big-screen remake of the popular ‘90s television series, where lifeguards attempt to uncover a criminal plot that threatens all that is good and pure in the world of beach life.

Baywatch is scheduled to hit the theatres on June 2 in India.
