Dwayne Johnson was honored during the People’s Choice Awards, but what he did during his acceptance speech has hearts melting. According to People, Amazon’s Jeff Bezos awarded Johnson the People’s Champion award at the event for his acts of kindness.
It all went down when the 49-year-old actor was presented with the People’s Champion award by Amazon founder Jeff Bezos.
In an emotional speech, he dedicated his award to the late Muhammad Ali and a young woman named Shushana, a recipient for the Make-a-Wish foundation.
And it was Shushana who ultimately took home the gong, after being brought out and presented it on stage.
“This is a total surprise,” he said on stage to the cheering crowd.
“I met her earlier. I told her how proud I was of her story. She is a fighter, she has inspired her family and friends.
“I want to tell you just how much you’ve inspired me and everyone around you and certainly everyone here.
Johnson then surprised a teen girl, who was in the audience as a Make-a-Wish recipient, by giving her his award.
The media outlets reported that the girl was shocked by the actor’s gesture, saying she was not expecting it “at all.”
