The Rock laments 'snowflake' culture in interview

Dwayne Johnson More

As the Star notes, The Rock's "snowflakes" comments come as the Armed Forces released an instantly viral ad campaign targeting "snowflakes" and as comedians, including Ricky Gervais, have begun to push back harder on the outrage culture's attack on comedy and free speech in general.

'The interview never took place, never happened, ' Johnson continued.

"Today online an interview dropped with me", The Rock said.

Regardless of the context, which we'll nearly certainly hear more about in the days to come, it's hardly a great time for Johnson to throw down this particular gauntlet, especially when those snowflakes will become the biggest voting generation in the United States whenever the Boomers finally cede their grasp on the population majority. Never happened. Never said any of those words. I don't cast stones and we all get to be who we are. Completely untrue. 100% fabricated (laughs).

'I was quite baffled when I woke up this morning, ' he added. "I just want to learn as much as I possibly can". I always encourage empathy and growth, but most importantly I encourage everybody to be exactly who they want to be.

The 46-year-old actor and professional wrestler has hit out at the younger generation, claiming they are ruining the hard work of people who "fought for freedom and equality", by trying to find more reasons to be "offended". "People can be who they want, be with who they want, and live how they want".

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has called a lot of people a lot of names, especially during his wrestling career, but he insists he did not call millennials "snowflakes".

'That can only be a good thing, but generation snowflake or, whatever you want to call them, are actually putting us backwards'.
