LOS ANGELES: Hollywood star Dwayne Johnson returned to a Seven-Eleven store where he used to shoplift as a child to "right the wrong." The "Black Adam" actor visited his boyhood 7-Eleven in Hawaii and posted a video and photos of the experience on his Instagram feed, reports aceshowbiz.com.
He wrote in the caption of the photos, "Had to 'do the wrong' back home in Hawaii after all these years," and added, "Stealing Snickers + 7-11 = exorcising ancient demons." I have been waiting decades to accomplish what I'm getting ready to do now, Johnson remarked in the video footage while driving to the business. When he was fourteen years old, he recalled, "I used to stop here at this 7-Eleven every day and take a king-sized Snickers bar since I couldn't afford to buy one." "I ate that before working out. I consistently did that for about a year "He said.
I had to go back and purchase each Snickers bar there. When he got there, he brought every Snickers bar off the shelves and paid for them at the register.
While inside the convenience shop, the 50-year-old also volunteered to pay for other customers' items.
"I greatly appreciate it. I'm grateful to you "He informed the cashier before putting the Snickers there for anyone else who might require one to take.
He told the cashier, "If someone looks like they're stealing Snickers, give them these so they don't steal them."
Johnson claimed after purchasing the Snickers bars, "After decades of waiting to come back to 7-11 and try and make good, that felt really, very wonderful." Outside the shop, he spent time posing for photos with his followers.
Johnson outlined his tale in more depth in the caption. He remembered, "I exorcised this terrible chocolate demon that has been eating at me for decades. We were kicked out of Hawaii in '87, and I finally returned home to make amends after all these years. He clarified, "When I was 14 years old and on my way to the gym, I used to steal a king-sized @snickers from 7-11 EVERY DAY for almost a year because I was so broke. The Snickers served as my pre-workout meal. Every day, the same employee simply turned her head and avoided catching 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," the actor said when asked why he felt the need to go back to the store.
