Here’s a feel-good video of Tuesday: He visited The Rock 7-11 he used to frequent in his days growing up in Hawaii and bought all of their Snickers bars to make up for all the times he stole from the convenience store in his youth – and he made sure to pay for all of the visitors’ merchandise the other too. Watch the cute clip below.
As he explained in an Instagram caption, Dwayne Johnson was “pretty broke” in his youth, “so I would steal a king sized @snickers everyday from 7-11 about when I was 14, on my way to the club.”
Johnson added, “The same employee was there every day and always had her head turned and never set me back.” Johnson’s family was evicted from their home in Hawaii in 1987, and ever since, his past theft has plagued his conscience.
“I’ve played with a few big devils over the years (I still have a few 😉 so I know this one sounds pretty silly, but every time I come home to Hawaii and drive up at 7-11…” he explained. “,” I always knew I needed to go in and clean out every Snickers bar they had – the right way.
After paying the locals’ tabs and forcing poor cashier BK to count all the Snickers in the store, The Rock eventually leaves all of their candy bars in a bag on the counter. He told the staff, “If someone out there looks like they’re stealing a Snickers, give them these so they don’t steal them.”
Johnson: “We can’t change the past and some of the stupid things we may have done, but every now and then we can add a little note of grace to this situation – and maybe put a big smile on some stranger’s faces” he said.
Rockstar’s good deed may have gone viral, but it wasn’t a photo op: The actor said in October that he wouldn’t formally run for president in 2024. Sticking to the big screen, Johnson starred in the DC flick Black Adam.
