Dwayne Johnson: "This generation [is] looking for a reason to be offended"

Dwayne Johnson:

"I was quite baffled when I woke up this morning", Johnson said. He acknowledged in his interview that indeed the world has come a long way, and for the better. I don't cast stones and we all get to be who we are, ' he said, adding the hashtags, #millies, #plurals, #boomers and #TequilaGeneration.

Case in point: in a recent interview with United Kingdom tabloid The Daily Star, Johnson expressed chagrin with a modern generation full of what he and no shortage of very bad people have referred to as "snowflakes". Last year, he argued that America needs a return to leadership of people who have a comprehensive understanding of American history and politics, as well as prior political experience. "So to the millennials, the interview never happened".

Actor Dwayne Johnson - formerly, and fondly, known as WWE legend "The Rock" - has spoken out against "snowflake" culture, and he didn't mince any words whilst doing so. I always encourage empathy and growth, but most importantly I encourage everybody to be exactly who they want to be.

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

In fact, he mocked the need to put such labels on entire groups of people by saying that he made up the tequila generation, and it's one that you'll definitely 'want to join!' It seems like we do live in a generation of people who are looking for things to complain about. Categorized as - A movie so rotten and sh***y, you actually fell in love with it.

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

What can I say?
