The Rock makes amends with 7-Eleven store

According to The Rock, who is now worth $800 million, he shoplifted Snickers bars at a 7-Eleven Store in Hawaii every day for a year.


Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson might have the body of a god, but he's just like the rest of us. Because of this, he's not impervious to making mistakes, especially when he was younger. The Hollywood superstar has never been shy about admitting the things he's done wrong in the past. But, in this case, The Rock went above and beyond. He didn't just tell everyone the crimes he did before, he actually tried to make amends.

We're actually surprised The Rock didn't just go ahead and buy the 7-Eleven store.

According to his confession on Instagram, The Rock used to stop at a particular 7-Eleven in Hawaii where he'd steal a king-sized Snickers bar on the way to the gym every day because he couldn't afford to buy them.

The Rock then explained he wanted to "right the wrong" and bought all the Snickers candy bars inside the store. That's not all either. The Rock also paid for everyone else's tab.

As for why it took The Rock this long, he explains that he and his family were evicted from Hawaii in '87.

Here's an excerpt of what The Rock shared on the Instagram caption:

We can't change the past and some of the dumb stuff we may have done, but every once in a while we can add a little redeeming grace note to that situation - and maybe put a big smile on some stranger's faces.

This just goes to show that you can never judge someone based on what they did in the past.

The Rock isn't called the People's Champion for no reason. After a very successful WWE run through the late 90s and early 2000s, which was apparently inspired by Hulk Hogan, The Rock established himself as one of the biggest stars in Hollywood. However, Johnson's also known for being an overall good guy.

Last year, The Rock made rounds on the internet with a surprise appearance for handful of fans, giving away his personal truck to a Navy veteran, and gifting his mom a car for Christmas.

Considering this is the season for giving, we wouldn't be surprised if The Rock is cooking up something bigger.
