“Never said those words. 100% false. If I ever had an issue with someone, a group, community or a generation — I’d seek them out, create dialogue and do my best to understand them. Criticizing ain’t my style. I don’t cast stones and we all get to be who we are.”

In a video posted with the short statement, Johnson said, “Earlier today, online, an interview dropped with me, apparently it was with me, where I was insulting and criticizing millennials.”

“I’ve gained such a great trust and equity with you all guys all around the world over the years and you know it’s not a real ‘DJ’ interview if I’m ever insulting a group, a generation or anyone because that’s not me and that’s not who I am and that’s not what we do.”

He shared that video with his massive following of over 128 million people.

The Daily Star has removed the alleged Dwayne Johnson interview from its website.
