Dwayne Johnson buys every Snickers at Hawaii 7-Eleven to ‘right this wrong’ of candy thefts as 14-year-old
‘The Rock’ said his family was ‘broke as hell’ when he was a kid in Hawaii, leading him to swipe candy bars from a store every day
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson joked this week he had finally “exorcised this damn chocolate demon” after he returned to the Hawaii 7-Eleven — where he claimed he used to steal a Snickers “every day” as a 14-year-old – and bought out all of the nougat bars.
The “Black Adam” star explained in an Instagram post that his family was “broke as hell” when he was living on the island and for nearly a year when he was 14, he would swipe a Snickers from the store as his pre-workout snack.
The actor and former wrester known as “The Rock” said his family was “evicted from Hawaii” in 1987, and he had wanted to return to “right this wrong” for decades.
In a video posted to Instagram, the 50-year-old had a clerk ring up all of the store’s Snickers, leaving them on the counter and telling him to give the Snickers to any customers who look like they’re going to steal one.
He also tipped the clerk who had the task of counting the dozens of bars.
