Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson says 'generation snowflake' interview faked

  • 12/01/2019

Hollywood superstar Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson has denied calling out "generation snowflake" for "looking for a reason to be offended".

Earlier on Saturday, UK tabloid the Daily Star reported it had spoken to The Rock, who allegedly said he was sick of the constant complaining.

"So many good people fought for freedom and equality - but this generation are looking for a reason to be offended," the Daily Star reported him saying.

"Generation snowflake, or whatever you want to call them, are actually putting us backwards."

But The Rock has denied making those statements, saying in a video on Instagram that the quotes attributed to him were "100 percent  fabricated".

"The interview never happened. Never said those words. 100 percent false," he wrote in his post.

"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.

"Criticising ain't my style. I don't cast stones and we all get to be who we are."

The Daily Star is yet to comment on the controversy and whether they in fact interviewed The Rock.
