Laying the Smackdown: Dwayne 'The Rock’ Johnson Blasts 'Snowflake Generation'

I don't cast stones and we all get to be who we are.

Case in point: in a recent interview with United Kingdom tabloid The Daily Star, Johnson expressed chagrin with a modern generation full of what he and no shortage of very bad people have referred to as "snowflakes".

While Johnson admitted that it was positive that we live in a society where people are allowed to live how they please, he stated that he believes some people are actively looking to be offended. Completely untrue. A hundred percent fabricated. Never happened. Never said any of those words. The actor, wrestler, and all-around nice guy denied that an apparent interview with a United Kingdom news outlet ever happened after he was quoted as accusing people of being too sensitive. "I've gained such a great trust and equity in all you guys all around the world over the years, and you know it's not a real DJ interview if I'm ever insulting a group, a generation, or anyone, because that's not me".

Fake news was spread about The Rock this morning, and now he's making it know he never took part in an interview criticizing "generation snowflake". "I just want to learn as much as I possibly can".


"So many good people fought for freedom and equality - but this generation [is] looking for a reason to be offended", he continued.

He also wrote the following on Instagram with a video, seen below, explaining how he did not make the comments.

Speaking to the Daily Star newspaper, Dwayne added: "We thankfully now live in a world that has progressed over the last 30 or 40 years. That can only be a good thing, but generation snowflake, or whatever you want to call them, are actually putting us backwards". Johnson acknowledges that people should be free to speak their minds on whatever issues they choose to address but they should think first.
