They’re two of the most muscular and popular men on Instagram – but it appears Dan Bilzerian has a falling out with Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, with the former accusing the latter of having fake followers on the media platform social.
Bilzerian took to his Instagram Story earlier today to compare his IG video’s view count to that of The Rock. Although The Rock has nearly 10 times the subscribers of Bilzerian (324 million vs. 32.8 million) and posts much more frequently than Bilzerian, Bilzerian’s videos seem to consistently get more than 10 times the views of The Rock.
As Bilzerian himself says, “it’s weird”. This suggests that The Rock might have more than a few fake followers – or, at the very least, has a much less engaged following than Bilzerian.
Or maybe it’s because Danny B only posts half-naked women and Dwayne has a more PG Instagram…
This isn’t the first time Bilzerian has tried to stir up beef with The Rock. Late last year, the part-time poker player and full-time pig dealer criticized the Hollywood superstar’s physique during an appearance on the More plates More dates podcast.
“He’s obviously f**king juicing… It’s unhealthy to maintain that level of mass,” Bilzerian suggested, while still having a crack in his personality.
“I respect what he’s done, the guy is a fucking beast, he’s amazing and charismatic and always ready for the camera… He’s the highest paid actor in the world, although I don’t think that he’s the best actor… But the thing I don’t like about The Rock is that I don’t feel like he’s getting authentic.
“What’s the use of having ‘f**k you’ money if you can’t say ‘f**k you’? I do whatever the fuck I want… He doesn’t. Unless that, like, playing this character forever is what he wants? I don’t think that’s what he wants.

Bilzerian is right. He might also be right about The Rock’s Instagram following. At the same time, the whole thing also smells of sour grapes. Also: it is possible that the bigger your account, the more fake followers you have. And it’s not The Rock’s fault, even if it’s true.
There’s room for two unnecessarily huge units on Instagram, boys.
