My Polynesian Heart Is Bursting With Pride After Seeing Drew Afualo's Outfit At The "Black Adam" Premiere

    Drew repping our Samoan culture on the red carpet is everything.

    In case you haven't heard of her, Drew Afualo is a Samoan TikToker with nearly 8 million followers. She's famous for shutting down sexist trolls and standing up for women — all with an awesome sense of humor.

    Last night, she was a host at the premiere for Black Adam, the new superhero movie starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. My Polynesian heart is bursting with pride!

    On Instagram, she wrote, "Getting to host the @blackadammovie premiere w my bestie @chrisolsen & Warner Bros. was truly a dream come true. I am beside myself & am so honored. Black Adam is a great movie for many reasons, but getting to see a Samoan superhero (or anti hero like me PERIOD LMFAO) on the big screen is so amazing. Representation always makes me emotional."

    And the first time my girl got to be a red carpet host, she naturally repped Samoa from head to toe. Such a powerful moment for islanders!

    "I had a custom dress made by a Samoan woman @nancyelizabethxo," she wrote. "My glam was done by a Samoan HMUA @adamlesimmons, AND I got to walk w my Samoan boyfriend @billythekidd_. WE OUT HERE BABY."
