In this day and age, there are few Hollywood icons people should admire. The celebrities who aren’t the fodder of tabloid scandals destroy their goodwill by lecturing Americans into voting for Democrats. Most Hollywood actors waste their time whining on social media about why most of us are so horrible.
But not Dwayne Johnson. The patriotic, troop-loving actor has wowed fans for years with his unashamed patriotism and support for our values. The Rock has even attracted people interested in him running for office, although he has recently declined that idea (for now). But not that long ago, he showed up at a local convenient store. And he made a purchase that blew the owner away.
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson bought every Snickers bar from the Hawaii 7-Eleven he frequented as a 14-year-old.
“I have been waiting decades to do what I’m getting ready to do now,” he said in an Instagram video.
“When I was 14 years old, every day I used to stop here at this 7-Eleven and steal a king size Snickers Bar because I couldn’t afford to buy one,” Johnson said. “That was my pre-workout food. I did that for almost a year every day. I had to come back and buy every Snickers bar on those shelves.”
After Johnson bought the Snickers bars, he gave them to other customers, and paid for their groceries. He told the cashier to place them in a bag next to a register and give anyone who looks like he’s going to steal a Snickers Bar from that stock. [Source: Daily Caller]

Wow, what a story! When he was 14 years old, Johnson would steal a king size Snicker bar from his local 7-11 every day. He vowed that, one day, he would pay back the story–and the clerk who turned her head and let him do it.
So, The Rock showed up recently and bought every Snickers bar the store had in stock. He put them in a bag beside the register and asked the clerk to hand them out to anyone who looked like he was “going to steal a Snickers bar.”
He didn’t stop there. Johnson also paid for his fellow customers’ groceries as he gave them candy bars.
It appears Johnson is using some of his fame and success to pay back those who helped him get there. He is showing a little bit of generosity, spreading kindness and joy–at a time when it’s desperately needed.
He ended his giving spree with the comment that “we can add a little redeeming grace note,” despite the “dumb stuff” we all did in the past.
