Vin Diesel jokes his Facebook page garnered so many millions of fans he should be paid by the social media website for generating so much exposure.
Vin Diesel jokes Facebook should pay him for his millions of followers.
The Fast & Furious actor has over 41 million likes on his social media webpage.
Vin jumped on the Facebook bandwagon years ago and remains devoted to his online fans.
“So, when I had started my page, the only person that had a million fans was Barack Obama. Because it was first-quarter 2009, and he’d just got elected as President, because of social media. So, when I started talking to the fans, I became the No. 1 page in the world. Over Coca-Cola, over huge companies. And it was only because I said: ‘Hi, guys, I love you.’” he explained to Entertainment Weekly.
“Facebook used to ask me to come up to their office to explain what the f**k I was doing, and why I had so many fans. What was unique was: I never let anyone do a post, I never let anyone post for me in the last four years. My audience knows me so well on the page that if my producing partner’s in the room when I post, they’ll know somebody was around me. That’s kind of cool, that’s how sophisticated they are. Facebook really owes me billions of dollars. But whatever [laugh].”
Vin feels as if he is spiritually ensconced by the love generated by his Facebook followers.
The widespread appreciation seems to shield him from harm.
“You have an extra layer of protection in a weird way,” Vin said.
“I call on my angels because of that. If I’m doing a photo shoot with a leopard, and the leopard gets loose, and nobody got eaten, you kind of go: There must be something to that energy everyone has.”
