WWE legend The Rock returns to store he used to shoplift from as a kid to 'right the wrong'

Dwayne Johnson has finally righted a wrong that has existed for decades.


The Rock says there was a 7-Eleven store that's been on his mind for a while now and he's found time in his busy schedule to pay it a visit.

The action star revealed in an Instagram video how he used to go to the Hawaiian store every single day for nearly a year to shoplift.


He wasn't trying to bag anything huge during his stealing phase; it was literally just a Snickers bar.

Each day, he would pop into the 7-Eleven and hijack one delicious chocolate bar before he would hit the gym.

Now that he's earning mega millions in Hollywood, he decided it would be nice to go back and pay up for his indiscretions.


He wrote on Instagram: "We were evicted from Hawaii in ‘87 and after all these years - I finally got back home to right this wrong."

He admits he was 'broke as hell' during this period when he was around 14 years old.

The Rock continued: "The same clerk was there every day and always just turned her head and never busted me.

"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."


And that's exactly what he did.

He popped into the store, much to everyone's shock and amazement, and bought literally every Snickers bar they had.

But, to up the ante, Dwayne Johnson decided to pay for everyone else's shopping while he was there.


"Least I could do considering all the s**t I used to steal from here," he said.

"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."

Everyone seemed so thankful that a big name movie star was willing to pay for their groceries.

But it was The Rock who was the most thankful that he was finally able to get that demon off his back.


He was commended by people on Instagram, with one person writing: "What an awesome gesture!"

Another added: "That's what it's about! Fixing the things we might have broke! Legendary stories!"

A third said: "This is the best."

Not going to lie, this is a fantastic gesture.
