Former WWE Champion and highest paid man in Hollywood Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson delivered an amazing rebuke of liberals being offended by everything.

In an interview with Daily Star, Johnson slammed “generation snowflake” and those who are “always looking to be offended” over something.

“If you are not agreeing with them, then they are offended,” Johnson said, adding that this generation’s penchant for being offended over everything is having a negative effect on society.

“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,” Johnson said.

Johnson went on to argue that many young people being offended by everything is taking humanity backward rather than forward.

“If you are not agreeing with them then they are offended — and that is not what so many great men and women fought for,” he explained.

“We thankfully now live in a world that has progressed over the last 30 or 40 years. 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,” he continued.

Johnson, who has flirted with the idea of running for president one day, argued last year that America needs leaders who have an understanding of the nation’s history and politics.
