Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson drops the People’s Elbow on ‘snowflake’ generation: “They are putting us backwards.”

Editor’s Update: The Rock says the Daily Star interview was completely fabricated.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson wants the “snowflake” generation to know their role: “[They’re] actually putting us backwards,” Johnson said in an interview with The Daily Star.

“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. That’s democracy,” the 46-year-old former professional wrestler and highest-paid-actor of 2016 said.

“So many good people fought for freedom and equality,” the Rock continued. “But this generation are looking for a reason to be offended. If you are not agreeing with them then they are offended – and that is not what so many great men and women fought for.”

He added: “We thankfully now live in a world that has progressed over the last 30 or 40 years. People can be who they want, be with who they want, and live how they want. That can only be a good thing – but generation snowflake or, whatever you want to call them, are actually putting us backwards.”

Do you smell what The Rock is cooking? Is generation “snowflake” setting us backwards? Let us know in the comments.
