Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson SLAMS Britain’s ‘snowflake generation’ and says they’re ‘putting us back’

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has hit out at the ‘snowflake’ generation, accusing those who are ‘easily offended’ of pulling society ‘backwards’.

The former wrestler, 46, has revealed that while he supports people feeling free to be whoever they are, he’s none too pleased about those who constantly complain.

California native Dwayne told the Daily Star:  ‘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 are 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.’ 

He added: ‘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 backwards.’

Last month, the star amused fans when he took to Instagram to share a snapshot of his proudly displayed Razzie award, handed down to him for his critically-panned remake of classic TV series Baywatch.

He returned to his office for the first time in months after a busy filming schedule to find two new decorations: a plaque commemorating his work on the Moana soundtrack, and the infamous little Golden Raspberry.  

‘Great homecoming for me,’ he announced on Instagram with a poop, trophy, facepalm emoji. ‘After months away from home due to filming, I come back home to these Christmas gift surprises waiting for me in my office.’

The plaque was in recognition of the fact the Moana soundtrack — on which he sang the catchy You’re Welcome as demigod Maui — had sold five million copies worldwide.

‘And a sweet little GOLDEN RAZZIE AWARD for making BAYWATCH. Categorized as — A movie so rotten and sh***y, you actually fell in love with it.

He added: ‘Hey, I take full responsibility for the [poop] so punch me right in the kisser for that one.’

The Razzie Awards, held the night before the Oscars, honour what are generally regarded as the worst films of the year.

And a new category was recently introduced — The Razzie Nominee So Rotten You Loved It — the inaugural winner being Baywatch.

In the big screen comedy take on the famous TV show, The Rock played lifeguard Mitch Buchannon, the role originally made famous by David Hasselhoff.

The film was panned by critics (17 per cent in Rotten Tomatoes) but fared better with audiences (55 per cent on Rotten Tomatoes); almost tripling its $65million budget to reap $177milliom at the box office.

The blip did not however affect the star rating of The Rock, who could still easily afford to buy his mother a new house this Christmas.
