Settin’ the record straight. The interview never happened. Never said those words. 100% false. If I ever had an issue with someone, a group, community or a generation — I’d seek them out, create dialogue and do my best to understand them. Criticizing ain’t my style. I don’t cast stones and we all get to be who we are. #millies #plurals #boomers #TequilaGeneration 🤙🏾🥃
Its no secret millennials are the softest generation.
They claim everything is sexist, racist, hateful, and offensive.
But Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson just shut them up with one statement.
Dwayne Johnson, widely known for his fame in the WWE and blockbuster movies such as G.I. Joe and Moana, is not afraid of speaking his mind.
And he recently attacked millennials for their ridiculous whining like the outcry over the name “Gingerbread Man.”
He criticized the millennial snowflakes for “looking for a reason to be offended.”
The Daily Star writes:
F1 banned the much-loved Grid Girls over sexism fears, uni leaders banned clapping in case it upset soft students and there was outcry when equality fools demanded a re-branding of the tasty treats to “Gingerbread People”.
As a result, former wrestler The Rock, who made £92million from his blockbuster movies last year, isn’t happy.
He said: “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.
“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.”
The superstar thinks that while the world has become a more tolerant and better place, whining snowflakes are draining positive change through their constant moaning.
The Rock hit the nail on the head.
Millennials flock to victimhood mentality as an excuse for their own shortcomings.
The reality is that everyone has a choice to be offended or not.
When a snowflake hurls criticisms at something as simple as the “Gingerbread Man,” they not only look ridiculous, but they are attacking the freedom of speech.
They are creating a culture where everyone is forced to tip toe around for fear of accidentally offending someone or not following the rules set out by the PC Police.
Donald Trump realized this, and attacking PC culture helped win him the White House.
But, since then, snowflakes have only doubled down on their manufactured outrage.
Ultimately, everyone can find something to take offense about.
But choosing not to be offended is key.
