'Completely untrue, 100% fabricated': The Rock says interview where he reportedly said 'snowflake generation' was too easily offended never took place

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson shared a statement on Instagram, in which he says an interview posted Friday morning by The Daily Star was "completely untrue" and that the "interview never took place."
The Daily Star's article was headlined: "EXCLUSIVE: The Rock slams snowflakes as 'looking for reasons to be offended.'"
"You know it's not a real D.J. [Dwayne Johnson] interview if I'm ever insulting a group, a generation, or anyone," Johnson told his fans. "Because that's not me, and it's not who I am, and it's not what we do."
The Daily Star did not immediately return INSIDER's request for comment. 
INSIDER contacted Johnson's representatives and will update as necessary.

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson made headlines Friday after an alleged interview with The Daily Star was published online, in which The Star reported an "exclusive interview" with the actor saying "this generation are looking for a reason to be offended."
On Friday afternoon, Johnson shared a video on his Instagram and Twitter accounts, saying, "the interview never took place. Never happened, never said any of those words, completely untrue, 100% fabricated."
"You know, I've gained such a great trust and equity with all you guys all around the world over the past couple of years," Johnson said, addressing his fans. "And you know it's not a real D.J. [Dwayne Johnson] interview if I'm ever insulting a group, a generation, or anyone. Because that's not me, and it's not who I am, and it's not what we do."








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
