- In his Instagram post, Dwayne Johnson recalled that he used to steal Snickers bars from a 7-Eleven Store when he was still young and poor in Hawaii.
- When Johnson was in Hawaii recently, he went to the store and bought all the Snickers bars, gave cash to the clerks and paid for the other customers’ purchases.
- Johnson said that it was his way of correcting the mistakes that he made in his past and paying forward to redeem himself.
Dwayne Johnson has never kept his humble beginnings a secret. Even as he rose to become one of the biggest stars, he has always been honest of the hardships he had to endure to reach where he is now.
Johnson recalled that at one time, “I was broke as hell, so I used to steal a king sized Snickers every day from 7-11 for almost a year when I was 14 yrs old, on my way to the gym.”
And even if the store clerk knew what was going on, the person did not squeal on him. It always made him guilty every time he would go back to Hawaii. He swore that one day, he would go inside a 7-Eleven store and “clean out every Snickers bar they had — the right way.”
And he did just that in one video that he posted on his Instagram account. He returned to the 7-Eleven store in Hawaii and captioned it: “finally exorcised this damn chocolate demon that’s been gnawing at me for decades.”
He is shown clearing the shelves of all its Snickers bars and paying $298 for it. He even gave cash to the clerks at the store to thank them. He said, “Least I could do considering all the shit I used to steal from here.”
Johnson also paid for the purchases of the other customers who came in at the store.
“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,” Johnson added.
