The Rock Hits Back At The 'Easily Offended Snowflake Generation'

Wrestler turned global movie star Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson body-slammed a British tabloid on Friday for posting what he called a "fabricated" interview featuring him bashing "snowflakes".

In the video's accompanying caption, Johnson doubles down in his sentiments, writing: "Settin' the record straight".

'Earlier today, an interview dropped, apparently with me, where I was insulting millennials.

Responding to a film critic, Rock wrote, "Hiiii Yolanda, the interview never took place".

Mr. Johnson said in his video that the quotes were "100 percent fabricated" and that he would never criticize an entire generation.

The People's Champion recently remarked to The Daily Star about Generation Snowflake and the people who belong to that group of people. An hour after the social media blast, the paper's website was still carrying the original story.

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".

GoFundMe border wall campaign to refund donors after falling short of goal
Over 330,000 people had donated to the cause, with nine people giving over $10,000 and one person giving $50,000. Kolfage, who was severely wounded in Iraq in 2004 and is a triple amputee, was still soliciting funds on Friday.

Fox Nation host Tyrus "couldn't agree more" with actor Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's criticism of the "snowflake" culture.

The Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle star added, "We thankfully now live in a world that has progressed over the last 30 or 40 years". It seems like we do live in a generation of people who are looking for things to complain about.

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. He says, "I always encourage empathy, I encourage growth, but most importantly I encourage everybody to be exactly who they want to be".

The Rampage star later addressed the article on Instagram.

'And a sweet little GOLDEN RAZZIE AWARD for making BAYWATCH. On that note, thank you for visiting Ringside News.

What can I say?
