Even The Great One is misquoted from time to time. According to a new report from People magazine, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was the victim of a false interview that was published by The Daily Star.

The interview claimed that The Rock said that “generation snowflake,” which is a negative term to describe millennials, is too easily offended.

He quickly took to social media to deny the interview, saying the following:

“Earlier today, online, an interview dropped with me — apparently was with me, where I was insulting and criticizing millennials,” Johnson said in a video shared on his account Friday.

“The interview never took place. Never happened. Never said any of those words. Completely untrue. One hundred percent fabricated.”

“I was quite baffled when I woke up this morning,” Johnson continued. “I’ve gained such a great trust and equity with all you guys, all around the world over the years, and you know it’s not a real [Dwayne Johnson] interview if I’m ever insulting a group, a generation or anyone because that’s not me. That’s not who I am and that’s not what we do.”

“So, to the millennials, the interview never happened. I always encourage empathy, I encourage growth, but most importantly I encourage everybody to be exactly who they want to be.”

Johnson further explained his point captioning the 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. Criticizing ain’t my style.”

The interview has since been removed from The Daily Star’s website.

Editor’s Opinion:

You hate to hear stories like this. I’ve always perceived him to be a wonderful, humble and accepting person, so insulting millennials just doesn’t seem like his style.
