Do you smell what The Rock is cooking? Well whatever it may be, it’s definitely not for the faint of heart!
The former WWE wrestler turned Hollywood star didn’t shy away from bashing people who are “looking for a reason to be offended,” even labeling them as Generation Snowflake “or whatever you want to call them,” he said.
Johnson shared in a Daily Star interview:
“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 actor further said some people are misusing freedom and equality and are thus dragging our society “backwards.”
“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.”
Respect has to prevail, he pointed out. People may have different opinions on certain topics but does that not mean they have to be offended by others who may have opposing views than their own.
“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.
Well we couldn’t help but agree with the man.
Just go to any news pages on social media and you’ll see a lot of people on comment sections, arguing about and getting offended even by the tiniest issues. While there are also healthy discussion to be found in such threads, there’s just so much political-correctness-gone-wrong statements out there as well.

People Are Calling Netflix’s ‘You’ The ‘Creepiest Show Out There’
The Penn Badgley series has just been confirmed for a second season!
Netflix is currently on a roll with terrifying films like Bird Box and the interactive phenomenon Black Mirror: Bandersnatch. However, people are getting chills down their spines while watching the new series You. In fact, it's being called the "creepiest show ever" to air on the streaming service.
There is little doubt that post-apocalyptic films like Bird Box can make anyone fearful of the future. At the same time, Bandersnatch viewers find themselves going down a rabbit hole with the Choose-Your-Own-Adventure premise. However, You hits the right spots for its simple concept and the eerie feeling that the same thing can happen to you because of what you actually share on social media.
Be careful about what you post on social media!
Unseen ‘Bird Box’ Monster Finally Revealed But People Are Not Impressed
It seems the fear of the unknown is much scarier than this.
It was almost impossible to be online the past few weeks without hearing of "Bird Box," the new Netflix film that quickly turned into a viral sensation. But it can be argued that despite its near-instant popularity and reported record-breaking numbers, "Bird Box" left its viewers with a lot more questions than answers.
The smash hit horror, which had 45 million streams in its first week, sees Sandra Bullock and her fellow humans blindfolding themselves to avoid seeing an evil force. Meanwhile, viewers at home also couldn’t see the monsters thanks to a last minute decision to bin them from the movie - but so far, fans couldn't help but wonder how they look like.
