‘The Office’ actor changes name for climate change
Beloved actor of the American television series “The Office” Rainn Wilson announces that he will change his name to raise awareness of global warming.
Whoever plays the character of Dwight posted a video on his social media where he explains his decision.
He confirmed to his subscribers that he would no longer respond to the name of Rainn Percival Dietrich Wilson, but to that of Rainnfall Heat Wave Rising Sea Levels.
“As a little publicity stunt to save the planet, I decided to change my name on Twitter, Instagram and even on my little piece of paper,” he explained.
There is no evidence that the popular actor has in fact changed his name legally. While his new name appears in the description of his various platforms, his official users remain @RainnWilson.
Wilson said his name change was influenced by COP27, which takes place in Egypt this week.
For his new pseudonym, the actor used the site Arctic hazard name generator. The website encourages users to become an “Arctic name changer”.
