Dwayne Johnson buys every Snickers bar he used to steal from a local store

Dwayne Johnson has corrected a childhood mistake by buying every Snickers bar from a store he says regularly stole from.

The actor grew up living in Honolulu, Hawaii. While there, he apparently made a habit of stealing a candy bar from his local 7-11 store before his training session.

In a video posted to social media on Monday (September 28), Johnson explained his actions and his decision to make amends now.

“I’ve waited for decades to do what I’ve now prepared myself to do,” the actor said outside of the store.

In a voiceover, Johnson continued: “Every day when I was 14, I would stop here at this 7-11 and steal a giant Snicker bar because I couldn’t afford to buy one.

“That was my pre-training meal. I did that every day for almost a year. I had to come back and buy every Snickers bar on those shelves.”

As stunned customers and employees watched the Black Adam star cleared all the Snickers bars off the shelf before taking them to the till to check out.

After the vendor counted all the bars of chocolate, the actor then offered to pay for the groceries of any customers who were in the store at the time – much to the delight of the humble shoppers.

He then left the bag of chocolates at the checkout and advised the clerk if anyone looked like they were going to steal a Snickers bar to tell them to just grab one from their paid bag up front.

Shortly after leaving the store, Johnson spoke about the joy it brought him to give back.

“After decades of wanting to go back to 7-11 and try to do it well, it felt really, really good,” he said with a grin.

In his caption for the video, the former WWE wrestler added, “We can’t change the past and some of the stupid things 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 the faces of some strangers.”

Aside from his films, Johnson is known for sharing wholesome videos on his social media, which often feature his family and random acts of kindness and interactions with fans.
