The Rock Was About Ready To 'Hit The Stage' And Take Down A Rogue Producer At The End Of The Oscars

The Rock was a presenter at the Academy Awards this past Sunday, and there was a bit of a mix-up at the end with the Best Picture presentation.

You might have heard about it literally everywhere for the past three days.

Anyway, the Rock posted this photo to his Instagram.

You can see The Rock on the far right of the picture, just behind Meryl Streep.

The Rock wrote a caption for the photo, explaining the look on his face.

Apparently he thought a producer was "going rogue" and was getting ready to "hit the stage" and tackle the guy, which would have been even crazier than what did happen. 

"You can literally see my wheels spinnin’ on whether or not I should hit the stage and take down an Oscars producer who I thought went rogue and was trying to sabotage our final moment of the night as La La Land was accepting for Best Picture. Seconds before this I saw out of the corner of my eye, the producer saying loudly, “NO IT’S MOONLIGHT, the winner is MOONLIGHT!” as he walked up onto the stage. When he walked on stage, I remember sitting up and saying to @laurenhashianofficial, “What the f*cks he doing?”. She grabbed my arm and said, “Oh my God, they made a mistake”. The rest was history. In crazy moments like that, we need leaders to step up and take charge… I give La La Land producer, Jordan Horowitz much respect for stepping up to the mic and calling the Moonlight filmmakers and actors to the stage to accept their award. Thankfully, Jordan gave us the clarity we needed, because as much as I love and adore Meryl, I was willing to rumble over her to take down the producer going rogue. No business like show business. #Oscars #ThatLook #MattDamonWasReadyToGoBourne #IWasReadyToGoHobbs #LetsDoThis"

We can all give thanks that The Rock wasn't forced to rumble over Meryl and take down some poor schmoe.

"No business like show business," said the Rock.
