Fresh off of his old co-star Kevin Hart's controversial apology tour to the gays, Johnson shared some baffling comments in an interview with the Daily Star. "The interview never happened".
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. I don't cast stones and we all get to be who we are, ' he said, adding the hashtags, #millies, #plurals, #boomers and #TequilaGeneration. "Completely untrue. 100 percent fabricated". I was baffled when I woke up this morning'. 'So, to the millennials, the interview never happened'.
The Rampage star says the world has come a long way in terms of equality and acceptance, but believes "generation snowflake" is doing more harm than good to the movement. "This new fad of super tribalism, of 'if you don't see it my way, you're trying to hurt me, ' it's just bad for the country in general". Dwayne Johnson took to his social media of choice, Instagram, earlier today to say that he never actually dissed the "generation snowflake" that is always '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'.
"We thankfully now live in a world that has progressed over the last 30 or 40 years", he explained. Johnson acknowledges that people should be free to speak their minds on whatever issues they choose to address but they should think first.
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!'
