KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 28 — Hollywood actor and wrestling superstar Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson returned to a 7-Eleven in his hometown to settle some unresolved matters.
In an Instagram reel, the Black Adam star disclosed that he had finally been able to return to his hometown in Hawaii after his family was evicted in 1987.
He shared that when he was 14, he used to drop by the 7-Eleven store every day to steal a king-sized Snickers chocolate bar before heading to the gym.
According to Johnson, he was penniless at that time and the chocolate bar was his pre-daily workout fuel.
He added that the cashier lady would just turn her head and never once busted him for his actions.
In the clip, Johnson was excited to return to the store after decades. He asked the cashier the whereabouts of the chocolate bar and promptly emptied the whole rack of Snickers.
He paid for it this time, including all the purchases of the people who were in the store at that time.
"I’ve exorcised a few big demons over the years (I still have a few left) so I know this one seems VERY SILLY.
"But every time I come back home to Hawaii and drive by 7-Eleven, I always knew I needed to go in and clean out every Snickers bar they had - the right way.
"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,” he wrote in the caption.
After buying all the Snickers bars from the store racks, he left the bags of Snickers on the counter and asked the cashier to give them out for free.
He added that it was the least he could do considering what he had done during his youth.
The clip has garnered over seven million views with over 500,000 likes since it was uploaded early this morning.
Alongside Johnson’s reveal, 7-Eleven's official Instagram account commented "A king chocolate bar for a king" in Johnson’s more recent post where he shared snippets from the video.
The snippet post alone has amassed over one million likes in less than six hours after being posted.
