Osama bin Laden is dead, and The Rock knew about it first: coincidence?

Via Spout on IndieWire, I learned this:

Most news outlets will mention Keith Urbahn [former chief of staff for former defense secretary Donald Rumsfeld, who broke the news on Twitter of bin Laden’s death], but it’s worth noting, via Badass Digest, that “Fast Five” star Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson tweeted at exactly the same time (10:24 pm EST) a more cryptic message pertaining to the news. I’d think he simply got it off Urbahn’s leak with immediate turnaround, but The Rock doesn’t technically follow anyone.

What did Dwayne Johnson tweet?

Just got word that will shock the world – Land of the free…home of the brave DAMN PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN!

Feel free to use this as an open thread to talk about the death of Osama bin Laden. I don’t have much to say, except that I’m not sorry he’s dead, but I’m not sure it changes much of anything.
