The world’s biggest movie star Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has body slammed Britain’s growing snowflake culture. He “laid the smackdown” on PC softies in an exclusive chat with the Daily Star. While The People’s Champion applauds the fact nowadays anyone can “be who they want to be” the musclebound man-mountain raged at the constant offense snowflakes take from everything. The legendary wrestler turned actor says it does a disservice to war heroes who fought for freedom of speech. He spoke out after a flood of snowflake stories hit the headlines. F1 banned the much-loved Grid Girls over sexism fears, uni leaders banned clapping in case it upset soft students and there was outcry when equality fools demanded a re-branding of the tasty treats to “Gingerbread People”. As a result, former wrestler The Rock, who made £92million from his blockbuster movies last year, isn’t happy. He said: “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. “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 – and that is not what so many great men and women fought for.” The superstar thinks that while the world has become a more tolerant and better place, whining snowflakes are draining positive change through their constant moaning. “We thankfully now live in a world that has progressed over the last 30 or 40 years,” said the 46-year-old beefcake. “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 super fit megastar, who went from dishing out The People’s Elbow on WWE to becoming the world’s highest paid actor, and has gone to war on the overly precious. Recent mind-boggling fun-draining campaigns include changing the name of Gingerbread Men to Gingerbread People ..
Good on The Rock for saying what needs to be said. Sadly, I have a niece who is the poster child for this sorta snowflake nonsense, and it’s nauseating.
