The Rock lays the smackdown on a reporter for fabricating an interview.
Earlier today, an interview made the rounds where the Rock allegedly 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 comments were made in reference to F1 banning Grid Girls over sexism fears, uni leaders banning clapping in case it upset students and an outcry of people demanding that the food "Gingerbread Men" be re-branded to "Gingerbread People."
The interview was originally posted as an exclusive by Jack Andrews of the Daily Star in a now-deleted post.
The Rock took to social media to denounce the interview, stating that he never made the comments and that the entire thing had been fabricated.
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 ------
