John Cena has sparked backlash after appearing to use Russia’s invasion of Ukraine to promote his HBO series Peacemaker.
The professional wrestler and actor took to Twitter on Thursday (24 February), appearing to respond to the news that Russia had attacked Ukraine earlier that morning.
CCTV cameras caught Russian military vehicles rolling through border force checkpoints as ground troops crossed the Crimea border into Ukraine early on Thursday (24 February).
“If I could somehow summon the powers of a real life #Peacemaker, I think this would be a great time to do so,” wrote Cena.
His post included a sponsored hashtag for the HBO Max series, in which he stars as the titular DC Comics superhero.
