Dwayne Johnson Slams “Generation Snowflake” Who Seek Reasons to Be Offended

Submitted by: littlemissqt 1 week ago in Entertainment


An excerpt from TMZ: Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's got a big problem with people who have problems with everything, because he thinks they're crapping on the freedom of speech.

The Rock says there are way too many people in this generation who are looking for reasons to be offended, and they can't handle simple disagreements. According to England's Daily Star, he says, "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."

Johnson believes that's the beauty of democracy, adding ... "So many good people fought for freedom and equality - but this generation are looking for a reason to be offended."

The Rock concedes it's a good thing today's society is much more tolerant, accepting and progressive, but believes the whining ways of "generation snowflake or, whatever you want to call them, are actually putting us backwards.”

It's interesting, because the mega movie star doesn't mention any specific examples, but you have to wonder if the recent Oscars fiasco with his buddy, Kevin Hart, fueled his rant.

Is the picture added to the original post? The one where Dwayne denies saying any of it? :/
I just happened across the story today, that he is claiming he never said any such thing. I thought it rather odd, he's a very intelligent guy (seriously!) but not one who is known to go around slagging others...

Being offended is just lazy and easy to do.  To disagree and to be challenged with someone's different opinions and making valid points on a discussion basis is much more constructive for both parties. And if you don't agree with someone on some issue, don't shut them down: you probably have more in common than not.

I remember a story about a woman who defected from the DPRK and went on a media tour. She was in Japan and was shocked by these weird round containers on the street. We all know what trash cans are, but she didn't.

 I'm sorry if your biggest problem is banging your head against a keyboard and finding a new gender and then getting mad at someone who knows hows xx and xy and the kinsey scale works. i'll be nice and call you what  ever you want but you can't PC you're way out of chromosomes.

And as a reminder 
'I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United Sates of America and to the republic for which it stands'. 
The USA is a republic, not a democracy. Sorry if you didn't know that, but it was never a secret.

He didn't say it.  Or says he didn't say it.

faustsshadow BBC confirms that he seems quite annoyed. A freelancer sold them the story and they ran with it as an "interview". Freelancer can't be contacted.

I think the whole "pick on the snowflake generation" is kinda over-done.  Its akin to like hating on Nickelback and Imagine Dragons.

If you consider that the combination of The "greatest generation", The Baby Boomers and Generation X have probably done more climate damage then the rest of the HISTORY OF MANKIND did in total, maybe picking on the snowflakes seems silly.

daegog Except it's patently false. The older generations built better lives for themselves. In the last 10-20 years, the climate damage has been higher than all those previous years together, mainly by the spendings of millenials on previous generations backs. Funny to see millenials blame this on older generations while demanding their own rooms, demanding transports to schools and demanding things that many didn't even have access to in the past. Why do you think spending is still increasing? Spoiled millenials and gen Z are getting more and more purchasing power.


What other generation expected to be able to fly to a foreign country at least once every single year?
