It seems Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is not a big fan of ‘snowflakes’.
The Rampage star has expressed criticism at some in today’s society in a new interview, arguing that the ‘snowflake generation’ are “looking for a reason to be offended”.
“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,” he told the Daily Star.

“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 year, meanwhile, Johnson was revealed to be the highest paid actor of all time, at least in the 20-year history of magazine Forbes.
However, he recently courted some controversy after being cast as African-American folk hero John Henry in a new Netflix movie.
