Hollywood Actor Rainn Wilson Changes Name To Raise Awareness On Environment Amid COP27

Must Read

Actor Rainn Wilson, who is more popular for his Dwight Schrute character in the American sitcom-The Office for having an unmatched love for everything organic, has taken that love to a next level amid the UN climate conference COP27 in Egypt. Taking to Twitter, he announced on Thursday that he has changed his name on social media to ‘Rainnfall Heat Wave Extreme Winter Wilson’ to raise awareness regarding the risks of melting glaciers. 

In a video posted on Twitter, Wilson said, “Hi there, I am Rainn Wilson or should I say Rainnfall, heatwaves, rising sea levels and we have to do something about it now Wilson.” In the remaining video, he says that his “stunt” was done to draw the attention of world leaders. “We need world leaders at COP27 to take notice and take action. The Arctic is melting at millions of liters per second, yet this problem can’t seem to make a name for itself, so it’s up to us to make a name for it,” Wilson said.

He revealed his changed name was done using a website called ‘Arctic risk name generator’ in partnership with an organization – ‘Arctic Humanity at Risk Basecamp’ – which works to raise awareness about changes happening in the Arctic. He requested the viewers to get their “ArcticRisk name” too and said, “if enough of us do this, then maybe @cop27_egypt will be where our world leaders sit up and notice Arctic risks and introduce a solution…” Wilson further said, “the name changer will be a game changer.” He also tagged celebrities including Leonardo DiCaprio, and Cardi B among others on a similar Facebook post, also nominating them for this.

However, his social media profiles do not show the changed name currently. He reasoned that he is unable to do so due to the new Twitter verification rules. “P.S. THEY WON’T LET ME CHANGE MY NAME BECAUSE ELON!” The actor tweeted.
