  1. https://mashable.com/article/the-rock-snowflake-culture-interview/#Ex.PFuA1LkqI

    Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson really doesn't like the "snowflake generation."
    That much is clear from an interview the actor — who's one of the highest-paid in world — did with British tabloid The Daily Star.

    The Rock said that the snowflakes are taking society in a direction that doesn't align with the ideals of freedom that people have fought for in the past decades with their PC sentiments.
    "So many good people fought for freedom and equality, but this generation are looking for a reason to be offended," the 46-year-old told The Daily Star. "If you are not agreeing with them then they are offended, and that is not what so many great men and women fought for."
    While The Rock does think that the world has made a lot of progress in the past decades, he also thinks that the people of "generation snowflake" are standing in the way of positive change.
    "We thankfully now live in a world that has progressed over the last 30 or 40 years," The Rock said. "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."
    The Rock didn't elaborate on how the snowflake generation are "putting us backwards," but went on to make the argument that it all comes down to freedom of speech.
    "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," The Rock said. "That’s democracy."
    I guess what he's trying to say is that he's just really tired of our "candy asses."

  5. The Rock and Kevin Hart are buddies, yeah? I bet Dwayne is pissed after Hart got dragged through the mud with the Oscars "controversy". Good on him. The Rock always seemed pretty cool.

  6. And with that, he just lost his chance of getting the Democratic nomination - which is a shame since a Rock/Admiral McRaven ticket would probably a) win, and b) rout the #Resistance insurgency in the Dems that's letting Trump coast to within striking distance of 2020 anyway.

  7. He makes some really bad movies, some ok ones and I never did get into WWE but any thing I ever read about him as a person makes me have nothing but the utmost respect.

    He seems to truly care he makes people happy and dedicates insane effort in his life to do so but always said his child is still first. Good on him for also seeing being weak isn't a good trait.

    I'd like to lift with him, and you know he's the kinda guy who wouldn't laugh at a 2lb dumb bell curl but pat you on the back you hit the gym.

  11. They follow the Kanye principle. The Rock loses his minority status and becomes a white oppressor when he disagrees with wealthy white college kids' ideas about how to be a minority correctly.

  12. He's literally the best paid actor on the planet and incredibly muscular and attractive so I think he has the power not to give a fuck about what people think of his opinions.

  20. From what I hear from a lot of people who met and work with him, no one has anything negative to say about him. He truly is one of the nicest guys in Hollywood.
