Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson isn't afraid to voice his opinion.

On Tuesday, Under Armour's CEO Kevin Plank gave an interview to CNBC where he openly praised President Donald Trump:

"To have such a pro-business president is something that is a real asset for the country… People can really grab that opportunity."

On Thursday, the former wrestler — who is a spokesperson for the fitness company — took to Instagram to reveal his thoughts about Plank's endorsement.

First and foremost, the Baywatch actor disagrees with the CEO, and makes it clear that he does NOT share the same beliefs.

"I appreciate and welcome the feedback from people who disagree (and agree) with Kevin Plank's words on CNBC, but these are neither my words, nor my beliefs. His words were divisive and lacking in perspective. Inadvertently creating a situation where the personal political opinions of UA's partners and its employees were overshadowed by the comments of its CEO."

However, the actor understands that when you work with large corporations, you won't see eye-to-eye 100% of the time.

"I partner with brands I trust and with people who share my same values. That means a commitment to diversity, inclusion, community, open-mindedness and some serious hard work. But it doesn't mean that I or my team will always agree with the opinion of everyone who works there, including its executives."

Even though he does not support Trump's policies, he will continue working with UA because of his loyalty to the brand.

"Debate is healthy. But in a time of widespread disagreement, so is loyalty. I feel an obligation to stand with this diverse team, the American and global workers, who are the beating heart and soul of Under Armour and the reason I chose to partner with them. My commitment is as real as my sweat and callouses that thicken daily. #CommittedToThePeople"
