UPDATE: Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson denies slamming ‘generation snowflake,’ says tabloid made up story

UPDATE 1/12/2019: Johnson denies the statements and the interview published by the Daily Star.

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is not a fan of the “snowflake” culture which he slammed for bringing society “backwards.”

The 46-year-old actor believes people have the right to an opinion but told the Daily Star in an interview that those who are “looking for a reason to be offended” are setting society back decades.

“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 said. “That’s democracy.”

But as for the perpetually politically correct generation, the World Wrestling Federation superstar has no patience.

“So many good people fought for freedom and equality – but this generation are looking for a reason to be offended,” Johnson said. “If you are not agreeing with them then they are offended – and that is not what so many great men and women fought for.”

The Disney “Moana” star who is now hosting and producing the sports competition, “The Titan Games” on NBC, sees the world as a better place than it was three or four decades ago, but feels the so-called snowflakes are blocking – even reversing – that positive change.

“We thankfully now live in a world that has progressed over the last 30 or 40 years,” Johnson told the Daily Star. “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 backwards,” he added.

The left’s rampant attack on free speech by policing everything for political correctness reached a crescendo as the last year ended, with a debate sparked in December about whether “gingerbread men” cookies should be renamed to “gingerbread persons” and classrooms banning the colors of Christmas lest children be offended.

Comedians who found fame in routines regularly mocking one group or another found themselves at the receiving end of fiery backlash, even going back to comments made years before as was the case with Kevin Hart who bowed out as the host of the upcoming ABC-hosted Academy Awards because of past jokes.

It’s been widely reported that the 2019 Oscars will go without a host — It’s hard to host a show and make people laugh when you’re afraid to speak.
