The Rock buys 7-11’s Snickers to make up for past theft: Watch

Here’s a feel-good video for your Tuesday: The Rock frequented the 7-11 he frequented growing up in Hawaii and bought up all the Snickers bars to make up for all the times he stole from the grocery store growing up – and also paid for all the goods of the other visitors. Check out the cute clip below.

As he explained in the Instagram caption, Dwayne Johnson was “bloody broke” growing up, “so for almost a year when I was 14 I stole an oversized @snickers EVERY DAY from 7am to 11am, on.” my way to the gym.”

Johnson added, “The same clerk was there every day and just turned her head and never blew me up.” Johnson’s family was evicted from their Hawaiian home in 1987, and his previous theft has plagued his conscience ever since.

“I’ve wielded a few big demons over the years (I still have a few left 😉 so I know this one seems VERY STUPID, but every time I come back to Hawaii and drive by at 7-11…”, The Rock explained, “I always knew I had to go in and clean out every Snickers bar they had — the right way.”

After paying the locals’ bills and forcing poor cashier BK to count all the Snickers in the store, The Rock eventually left all the candy bars in a bag on the counter. “If anyone looks like they’re going to steal Snickers, give them these so they don’t steal it,” he told staff.

“We can’t change the past and some of the stupid things we may have done, but every once in a while we can add a little redeeming note of grace to this situation — and maybe put a big smile on some strangers’ faces,” Johnson said.

The Rock’s good deed may have gone viral, but it wasn’t a campaign photo op: The actor said back in October that he wouldn’t officially be running for president in 2024. Johnson last stayed in the DC on the big screen film Black Adam.
