Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson blames "generation snowflake" for "putting society backwards"

Can you smeeeelllllll the gammon is cooking?

Dwayne Johnson, AKA 'The Rock', seems like good fun. He never seems to take himself particularly seriously, and is regularly offering words of encouragement to his followers on social media. Just this week, it emerged that he made a dream come true for one of his biggest fans, a nine-year-old boy from Kildare, through Make-A-Wish Ireland.

In an interview with the Daily Star, the former wrestler and current movie star unveiled a slightly different part of his personality, as he blamed "generation snowflake" for "putting us backwards".

For those unaware, 'snowflake' is a derogatory term used to describe people with an unwarranted sense of entitlement, or who are over-emotional or easily offended.

It is also regularly used by those on the right to describe those who complain about racism, sexism, homophobia or general inequality in society.

While Johnson admitted that it was positive that we live in a society where people are allowed to live how they please, he stated that he believes some people are actively looking to be offended.

"So many good people fought for freedom and equality – but this generation are looking for a reason to be offended," said Johnson in the interview.

"If you are not agreeing with them then they are offended – and that is not what so many great men and women fought for.

"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."
