HONOLULU — Finally, the Rock has come back home to right a wrong when he wasn’t himself as a youth.
The pro wrestler-turned-actor returned to Hawaii and visited the 7-Eleven in Honolulu where he said he stole a Snickers bar every day on the way to the gym for nearly a year, Hawaii News Now reported.
“I have been waiting decades to do what I’m getting ready to do now,” Johnson, 50, wrote in a video he posted to his Instagram account on Sunday.
Johnson, the former WWE star who is now starting in the movie “Black Adam,” bought every Snickers bar on the shelf, explaining that it was the “least he could do.”
“When I was 14 years old, every day I used to stop here at this 7-Eleven and steal a king-sized Snickers bar because I couldn’t afford to buy one,” Johnson said in his video. “I had to come back and buy every Snickers bar on those shelves.”
Johnson went a step further, picking up the tab for some of the customers at the convenience store, USA Today reported.
The total was $298, and Johnson left the candy bars at the counter, telling the cashier to give them to anyone else attempting to steal the candy bar, Hawaii News Now reported.
“After decades of me wanting to come back home to 7-Eleven and try to make good, that felt really, really good,” Johnson said at the end of the video.
“We were evicted from Hawaii in ‘87 and after all these years,” Johnson wrote in the caption of his Instagram video. “I finally got back home to right this wrong.”
