Dwayne Johnson is remembering a fan who died tragically in a fiery interstate crash.
The actor, 46, sent a video to Angelo Pizarro paying tribute to his mom Aileen, who died in a crash last week after YouTuber McSkillet drove his McLaren 650S sports car the wrong way down a crowded San Diego highway. Angelo’s 12-year-old sister also died, as well as McSkillet, who born Trevor Heitmann. He was 18.
Angelo caught Johnson’s attention over the weekend when he sent a tweet to the actor and wrestler, asking for a video message to honor his mom.
“My beautiful mom who passed away loved @TheRock so so SO much. I’m trying to get him to do even a video saying her name for the funeral. If you could retweet the crap outta this for him to see it that’d mean the world. Thank you!” Angelo wrote.
Johnson later replied with a video in which he expressed his condolences.
“I’m sending you so much love and light and strength your way, from my family to yours,” Johnson says in a video Angelo later posted. “I’m so sorry to hear about your sister and your mom and this tragic loss that you’re going through. If your mom could see me now, which I’m sure she can, I just want to thank her for all the love and for being such a big fan. Stay strong.”
