Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has shared the struggles emotionally and financially he had growing up while trying to make a name for himself.
He has shared stories of giving back to the people that helped him while he was struggling.
Johnson shared another story from his upbringing in which he shared he stole a king-sized Snickers bar from a 7-11 in Hawaii as a pre-workout meal when he was 14-years-old.
“The same clerk was there every day and always just turned her head and never busted me,” said Johnson on a Facebook post.
I finally exorcised this damn chocolate demon that’s been gnawing at me for decades
💀 🍫 🙋🏽♂️
We were evicted from Hawaii in ‘87 and after all these years - I finally got back home to right this wrong.
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 14yrs 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.
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 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
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.

In order to exorcise “this damn chocolate demon that’s been gnawing at [him] for decades”, Johnson bought every Snickers bar the store had and left them for anyone that needed a snack.
He also picked up the tab for all the people who were waiting to buy something inside the store.
