Wrestling fans are praising John Cena for the respectful way he turned down a fan wanting him to say his catchphrase while he was out eating with friends.
I suppose it's the peril of being a celebrity that you really can't go anywhere without the chance of someone coming up to you and asking for something while you're just trying to go about your day.
While it might be nice at times to have people come up to you and tell you they love you and what you do, it's not hard to imagine that it might get a tad wearying after a while.
On top of that, everyone's allowed to have days when they don't really want to deal with other people all that much and just want to go about their business as usual.
The internet is awash with footage of celebrities having less than friendly encounters with fans who either met them at the wrong moment or were a little too insistent on getting something.
A fan approached Cena with their camera out and asked him 'can you 'you can't see me, like' with the Peacemaker star deftly responding: "How about 'can I enjoy some time with my friends?'"
Whomever was recording said 'ah sorry' and retreated with a nod of acknowledgement from Cena but the footage has since ended up online.
The encounter was posted to TikTok with the caption 'L John Cena', but other wrestling fans who saw the footage were sure it was actually a scrumptiously massive W.
One said Cena was 'actually so nice' while another declared that he 'manages to always carry himself with hustle, loyalty and respect' which really are the three qualities one must strive to carry themselves with in life.
A third said he 'couldn't have been more professional' and there were many who took umbrage at the video's caption attempting to claim that this was in some was an L for Cena.
Someone else called him a 'polite boundary-setter', praising Cena for not raising his voice or swearing during the interaction with the fan who put a camera in his face.
Others thought that approaching celebrities was fine if you just told them 'hi, huge fan, I hope you're having a great day' and left it at that instead of putting a camera on them and asking them to say the line.
