Dwayne Johnson has fixed a problem that's been going on for decades. The Rock says he's been thinking about a certain 7-Eleven store for a while, and he's finally found time in his busy schedule to go there.
In an Instagram video, the action star said that he used to steal from the Hawaiian store every day for almost a year. During his stealing phase, he didn't try to get anything big. It was just a Snickers bar.
Before going to the gym every day, he would stop by the 7-Eleven and steal a tasty chocolate bar. Now that he's making a lot of money in Hollywood, he thought it would be a good idea to go back and pay for his mistakes.
The man from Oahu said that 36 years ago when he was just 14 years old, he used to go to that same 7-Eleven every day on his way to the gym and steal a King-sized Snickers because he couldn't afford to buy one.
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 years old, on my way to the gym. The Snickers was my pre-daily workout. The same clerk was there every day and always just turned her head and never busted me.- Dwayne Johnson
Johnson and his family were kicked out of Hawaii a few months later. Even though the pro-wrestler-turned-actor had a lot of success in the years after this, he felt bad about shoplifting.
I've exercised 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 7-11... I always knew I needed to go in and clean out every Snickers bar they had - the right way.- Dwayne Johnson
That's why he decided to make a deal with the same convenience store. The Oahu native wrote in an Instagram post he put up on Sunday.
Had to 'right the wrong' back home in Hawaii after all these years. And as a bonus, it was a lot of fun to take care of everybody who walked into 7-11 while I was there. Least I could do considering all the shit I used to steal from here.
In a video about his quest for forgiveness, the star was seen taking all of the Snickers from the store's shelves and bringing them to the register to buy them. He also paid for the tabs of people who were waiting to pay and took selfies with people he met at 7-Eleven. Johnson told the clerk:
Thank you so much. I appreciate you. If somebody looks like they're stealing Snickers, give them these so they don't steal them.- Dwayne Johnson
Fans of Johnsons know that he is known for doing good things, such as helping kids with cancer and surprising students with disabilities. He even bought his mother a house last summer. He expressed this in June in a touching post:
When I was a little boy, I hated when my mom would cry. These days, I'll happily take her tears of joy. I always say, if you got a good mom then you got a shot at becoming a good, caring human being.- Dwayne Johnson
The Rock went back to a 7-Eleven where he used to shoplift to make up for things he had done wrong in the past. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson says that it's never too late to make up for past mistakes.
The star of the show Young Rock shared on social media about his recent trip to a 7-Eleven in Hawaii. He used to steal Snickers bars from the same store because he "couldn't afford one."
The actor, now 50, said that when he was 14 and "broke as hell," he would go to the same 7-Eleven every day and steal a King-sized Snickers bar to eat before his workout. Johnson paid off his debt more than 30 years later by buying every Snickers bar in the store and emptying the shelves.
