DJ Khaled says he does not go down on his wife because he is 'king'

Dwayne Johnson has waded into the uproar caused by a resurfaced interview where DJ Khaled claimed he doesn't perform oral sex on his wife but expects it from her.

On 4 May, The Root shared a story about a recently uncovered 2015 interview with The Breakfast Club. In it, DJ Khaled said there were "different rules for men" and "a woman should praise the man - the king".

"I just can't do what you want me to do. I just can't."

Khaled's comments sparked a furore, with several high profile artists mocking him for, well, being ridiculous.

"All Star" band Smash Mouth tweeted: "A King who doesn't is no King at all," while country music star Jason Isbell commented: "DJ Khaled would be a much better rapper if his tongue were stronger."

Westworld star Evan Rachel Wood wrote: "You're seriously missing out man. Take it from someone who has pride and thoroughly enjoys pleasuring women. You should grow up."

Even Dictionary.com got involved: "Double standard. A code containing different provisions for one group of people than for another, especially an unwritten code of sexual behaviour permitting men more freedom than women.

"See also: DJ Khaled."

And finally Dwayne Johnson, dropping in for a brief but brilliant remark on the Root Twitter thread, appeared to have the final say on the matter.

"Ahem... *clears throat*," he wrote. "As a man, I take great pride in mastering ALL performances. This is probably a little TMI [Too Much Information]... I will now quietly excuse myself from this fun thread."

Johnson, a professional wrestler, actor and producer, recently announced the birth of a baby girl with his partner Lauren Hashian, and penned a heartfelt open letter to his daughter, named Tiana.

"Blessed and proud to bring another strong girl into this world," he wrote. "I was raised and surrounded by strong, loving women all my life, but after participating in baby Tia's delivery, it's hard to express the new level of love, respect and admiration I have for @laurenhashianofficial and all mamas and women out there."
