The Daily Star has some ‘splainin to do. Their interview yesterday with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson where the semi-retired professional wrestler and top-tier Hollywood action hero said the “‘snowflake’ generation was putting us backwards?” According to The Rock himself: “The interview never happened. Never said those words. 100% false.”

Settin’ the record straight. The interview never happened. Never said those words. 100% false. If I ever had an issue with someone, a group, community or a generation — I’d seek them out, create dialogue and do my best to understand them. Criticizing ain’t my style. I don’t cast stones and we all get to be who we are. #millies #plurals #boomers #TequilaGeneration 🤙🏾🥃
“I’ve gained such a great trust and equity with you all 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 and that’s not who I am and that’s not what we do,” the Rock added in his Instagram statement. “I always encourage empathy, growth and acceptance and the belief that anybody should be able to be whoever they want to be.”
The Daily Star has not yet responded to Dwayne Johnson’s denouncement of their interview.
