Obviously, the main thing being said in criticism of The Rock's comments of more disability inclusion in Hollywood and the fact that he plays an amputee in Skyscraper, is that someone with an actual disability/an actual amputee could've played the part.
And while that may be so, you gotta give The Rock credit for being so impassioned about the inclusion of disabilities on the big screen to positively bring attention to it, and this could be seen as a good starting point for that to happen.
