The Rock Admits To Stealing Candy As A Kid And Pays For It

Last week, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson got to “‘right the wrong’ back home in Hawaii after all these years” when he returned to his childhood 7-Eleven.

Johnson then explains that when he was 14 years old, he’d stop at this particular 7-Eleven every day — for nearly a year — and steal a king-size Snickers bar as a pre-workout meal because he couldn’t afford to buy them. He even edited a few photos of himself at the time with Snickers bars to give a better visual:

“The same clerk was there every day and always just turned her head and never busted me,” he reveals. Then, in 1987, the Rock and his family were evicted from their home and left Hawaii, and the “damn chocolate demon,” as he calls it, has been “gnawing at [him] for decades.”

So now, 35 years later, the Rock returned to his childhood 7-Eleven and bought every Snickers bar on the shelf and paid for any items other customers in the store were buying.

BK, the 7-Eleven clerk, graciously counted every Snickers bar and rang it all up — if you’ve ever worked retail, you know what a pain that can be — before the Rock revealed he was leaving the Snickers bars there for others who may need one.

“If somebody looks like they’re stealing Snickers,” the Rock tells BK, “give them these so they don’t steal it.”

As he leaves the store, the Rock says, “After decades of me wanting to come back home to 7-Eleven and try and make good, that felt really, really good.”

And he ends the caption of the video by writing, “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 strangers’ faces.”

Needless to say, a majority of people were moved by his actions, and his video now has 1.7M likes and almost 20K comments.

So, there you have it — the Rock finally got to exorcise his “chocolate demon.” Maybe you really aren’t you when you’re hungry. What do you think? Let us know in the comments below!
