Dwayne Johnson reveals truth behind 'fabricated' interview


American actor Dwayne Johnson accused a British tabloid publication publishing a fake interview, stating that the interview never happened.

The star took to his Twitter handle to reveal the truth about the interview which quoted the star talking about "smacking down snowflakes," Variety reported.

Johnson shared a video on Instagram saying, "I can't believe I have to do this again and set the record straight on something again. Earlier today online an interview dropped with me - apparently, it was with me - where I was insulting and criticizing millennials."

He further added, "The interview never took place. Never happened, never said any of those words. Completely untrue. 100% fabricated, I was quite baffled when I woke up this morning."

In the article was written in the way that portrayed Johnson as sceptical of "PC softies" and also stated that he "spoke out after a flood of snowflake stories hit the headlines."

"So many good people fought for freedom and equality - but this generation is looking for a reason to be offended," says the article quoting the 'Rampage' star. 

Defending himself the 46-year-old star said, "I've gained such great trust and equity with all you guys all around the world over the years and you know it's not a real DJ interview if I'm ever insulting a group, a generation, or anyone because that's not me. That is not who I am and it's not what we do. So to the millennials, the interview never happened."

The interview was published on Friday by Daily Star and was billed as an exclusive on its front page. Later the story was removed from their website by the publication.

Currently, the 'Baywatch' star is promoting his upcoming movie, 'Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs and Shaw'.
