Dwayne Johnson makes amends for shoplifting at 7-Eleven in the past

1 Dec - Dwayne Johnson recently atoned for his sin of "shoplifting chocolates" by buying all the chocolates from a 7-Eleven convenience store in Hawaii.

The actor recently posted a video of him visiting the same store he frequented as a teen in his hometown, saying, "I finally exorcised this damn chocolate demon that's been gnawing at me for decades. We were evicted from Hawaii in '87 and after all these years - I finally got back home to right this wrong."

Johnson shared that as a poor kid, he used to steal a king-sized Snickers bar every day from 7-Eleven for almost a year on his way to the gym as his pre-daily workout snack.

This is Dwayne Johnson at 15. Yes. We are not joking.

"The same clerk was there every day and always just turned her head and never busted me. I've exorcised 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-Eleven... I always knew I needed to go in and clean out every Snickers bar they had - the right way," he added.

The "Black Adam" star, who bought all the Snickers that were on the shelf, also left the bags in the store, telling the cashier to just give the Snickers to anybody who looked like they were going to steal it so that they won't have to do what he did in the past.

At the same time, he also paid for the items bought for other customers who were lucky enough to be in the store at the same time.

"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 strangers' faces," he said.

I'll take that and that and that
I'll take that and that and that
This time, he pays for the Snickers

... and made their day
... and made their day
