'The Rock' Slams 'Generation Snowflake' in New Interview

1/11/2019 -- In a new interview with the Daily Star, top-paid actor and one of the world's most famous people Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson candidly lamented the younger generation -- which he called "generation snowflake" -- for being easily offended, fighting against free speech, and generally pulling the culture "backwards."

“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 said. “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.”

The superstar, whom Forbes lists as the second-highest-paid actor in the world, is apparently fed up with outrage culture.

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,” he said. “That can only be a good thing -- but generation snowflake or, whatever you want to call them, are actually putting us backward.”
