The Rock shared a video on Instagram to set the record straight and included the caption: "The interview never happened. Completely fabricated. Kindly check out my last response I just posted re the false interview". "I was quite baffled when I woke up this morning", Johnson said.
The Daily Star did not immediately respond to Fox News' request for comment about the Rock's denunciation of the initial report. "The interview never took place".
"So to the millennials, the interview never happened". I always encourage empathy, I encourage growth, but most importantly, I always encourage everybody to be exactly what they want to be'. "Have a good day".
Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has called a lot of people a lot of names, especially during his wrestling career, but he insists he did not call millennials "snowflakes".
The 46-year-old actor and professional wrestler has hit out at the younger generation, claiming they are ruining the hard work of people who "fought for freedom and equality", by trying to find more reasons to be "offended". That original interview stated The Rock said the following.
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".
"I don't have to agree with what somebody thinks, who they vote for, what they voted for, what they think, but I will back their right to say or believe it", Johnson said.
In fact, he mocked the need to put such labels on entire groups of people by saying that he made up the tequila generation, and it's one that you'll definitely 'want to join!' Johnson acknowledges that people should be free to speak their minds on whatever issues they choose to address but they should think first.
