The Rock is one of the greatest pro wrestlers of all time. He has several accolades to his name and continues to be one of the richest across the globe. However, he was once broke.
The Rock reveals the incident
It has come to light that there was a time when he was anything but privileged and resorted to stealing from a local shop.
At a young age, he used to steal snickers regularly from the Hawaii 7-eleven in his area. He recently shared his story on Instagram and he revealed how the cashier turned her back on him so he could get away with the chocolate daily.
The Rock went back to the same shop to buy all the Snickers they had in their stores. He told the cashier to keep those Snickers for anyone who looked like they were trying to shoplift. He also purchased whatever anyone else in the store was buying at the time.
His caption read:
💀 🍫 🙋🏽♂️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.”
