Dwayne Johnson has made a tribute video for a fan who died in a car crash.
Aileen Pizarro and her daughter, Aryana, died last week after a vehicle driving in the wrong direction crashed into their car.
Aileen was a huge fan of The Rock, so her son, Angelo Pizarro, decided to grab the actor’s attention so that he could show a video of Dwayne saying his mother’s name at her funeral.
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! pic.twitter.com/ypr4ZJzMxw

Angelo tweeted the famous actor a photo of his mother kissing a picture of Dwayne along with the caption: “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’s request was retweeted over 80,000 times and liked 58,000 times.
The tweet was soon noticed by Dwayne, and he quickly DM’d an emotional minute-long tribute video to Angelo.
@TheRock THANK YOU SO MUCH SIR. I hope everyone knows how amazing you are. I can’t stop smiling knowing she’s smiling so much. Just, thank you. And again thank you to every single person who viewed my post (now over a million). pic.twitter.com/tQisyRGgVT

“I’m sending you so much love, and light and strength your way from my family to yours,” the former WWE star told Angelo.
“I just want to say thanks for reaching out man. I’m so sorry to hear about your sister and your mom and this tragic loss that you and your family are going through,” he continued.
“If your mom can see me now, which I’m sure she can, I just want to thank her for all the love and being such a big fan. So, stay strong,” the actor finished.
The Rock later retweeted the video and wrote: “Least I could do. Story is heartbreaking. Stay strong.”
