Nikki Bella slammed for promoting book about WWE legend Dwayne 'The Rock Johnson' and sparking 'political debate'

NIKKI BELLA was forced to hit back at fans who had slammed her for supporting a photography book about The Rock.

The 36-year-old came under fire from Donald Trump supporters for voicing her support for her fellow WWE legend Dwayne Johnson following the release of his new project.

Mama just got a new rocking chair read in the mail. @hhgarcia41 I want you to be behind my lens one day! 🙌🏼✨ These photos are so memorable, rare and iconic. Swipe to see my favorite. 🥰 Please go support my friend and get his book. Swipe up in IG stories! Congrats again Hiram!

Nikki had taken to Instagram to promote her friend Hiram Garcia's photography book entitled 'The Rock: Through the Lens: His Life, His Movies, His World'.

Yet many took her post as an endorsement of US Presidential candidate Joe Biden after The Rock publicly supported the former VP over WWE Hall of Famer Trump.

Speaking on The Bellas Podcast alongside twin sister Brie, Nikki said: "We know as authors … how much work you put into making your first book; to any book you have.

"And the minute you get your first book published and it hit shelves, how proud you are. You're just so excited. It's a huge accomplishment.

I looked at social media and all of a sudden I was like, 'What the f***?' I'm like, how did this turn into a political debate?

"So when I got his in the mail, I just remember that feeling when we dropped (memoir) Incomparable."

Nikki – who recently gave birth to her son Matteo – admitted to being shocked by the backlash to her post.

She added: "I looked at social media and all of a sudden I was like, 'What the f***?' I'm like, how did this turn into a political debate?"

"First of all, that never crossed my mind. Not once.

"It sucks that you can support someone—support a friend and their amazing accomplishment—and how it turns into negativity and you get this backlash and it turns into something so political.

Nikki later told her followers: "Nikki Bella’s account, this is all about positivity, love and light.

"I embrace everyone’s beliefs because I was raised to believe — and I learned on my own — that everyone is gonna have different opinions and beliefs.

"That’s what makes the world go round. We’re all never going to think the same."

Throwback to my @pure_barre, squatting, elliptical and doing my 300 abs a night days. Getting back to doing my 300 abs tonight, takes only 10 minutes, who wants to join me?!? Also, anyone take the Pure Barre classes online? How is it?! So curious! 💛✨ #tbt
