Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson calls out 'snowflake generation', says they are 'easily offended' and 'put society backward'
Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson believes that the present generation is looking for reasons to be offended and that disrespects people who fought for their freedom and equality
Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson slams what he calls the "snowflake generation" and has accused all those who get "easily offended" of "putting society backward". The 46-year-old made it crystal clear that he had no time for whiners and those who constantly complain.
As reported by the Daily Star, Dwayne shared, "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. So many good people fought for freedom and equality — but this generation is 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. 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 backward," he continued.
Around last month, the star took to Instagram to share a picture of his Razzie Award which had been presented to him for the remake of the classic TV series 'Baywatch'. For the first time in months, he returned to his office to find two new decorations — a plaque which paid tribute to his role in the movie 'Moana' and the infamous little Golden Raspberry.
He wrote on Instagram, "Great homecoming for me. After months away from home due to filming, I come back home to these Christmas gift surprises waiting for me in my office."

Great homecoming for me 💩🏆🤦🏽♂️ After months away from home due to filming, I come back home to these Christmas gift surprises waiting for me in my office. Amazing gift from Disney commemorating over 5 MILLION WORLDWIDE SALES for our soundtrack of MOANA, on which I sang the song YOU’RE WELCOME. And a sweet little GOLDEN RAZZIE AWARD for making BAYWATCH. Categorized as — A movie so rotten and shitty, you actually fell in love with it. Hey, I take full responsibility for the 💩 so punch me right in the kisser for that one. #WelcomeHomeDJ #AndMerryXmas 🤣🎅🏾

The plaque was presented to Dwayne for his soundtrack on 'Moana' titled 'You're Welcome' which he sang as part of his role as the demigod Maui. The soundtrack has reportedly sold around five million copies worldwide. Maui is the deuteragonist of Disney's 2016 animated feature film 'Moana'. He is a boisterous demigod of South Pacific legend that primarily serves as an audacious hero and a guardian of mankind.
Dwayne has been able to master the art of dominating a genre or a character type given the variety of roles he has played and the range of different movies he has acted in. He was also named the second highest paid actor on the 2018 Forbes List.
