3:29 PM PT — The Rock just set the record straight by categorically denying the so-called interview with the Daily Star EVER HAPPENED. He’s adamant — the article was “100 percent fabricated.” He goes on to say trashing a group, community or generation is not his style. He says, “I always encourage empathy, I encourage growth, but most importantly I encourage everybody to be exactly who they want to be.”
Watch … he also encourages everyone to get on board with “the Tequila Generation.”
Excuse us while we hop on board.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson‘s got a big problem with people who have problems with everything, because he thinks they’re crapping on the freedom of speech.
The Rock says there are way too many people in this generation who are looking for reasons to be offended, and they can’t handle simple disagreements. According to England’s Daily Star, he says, “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.”
Johnson believes that’s the beauty of democracy, adding … “So many good people fought for freedom and equality – but this generation are looking for a reason to be offended.”
The Rock concedes it’s a good thing today’s society is much more tolerant, accepting and progressive, but believes the whining ways of “generation snowflake or, whatever you want to call them, are actually putting us backwards.”
It’s interesting, because the mega movie star doesn’t mention any specific examples, but you have to wonder if the recent Oscars fiasco with his buddy, Kevin Hart, fueled his rant.
And, we gotta ask …
