Johnson, for his part, posted interesting quotes on his Instagram account Tuesday and Wednesday, including one from Malcolm X: “I believe in treating people right, but I’m not going to waste my time trying to treat somebody right who doesn’t know how to return the treatment.”

Another read: “Don’t let your loyalty become slavery. If they don’t appreciate what you bring to the table … let them eat alone.”
