The WWE legend, who has gone on to become the world's highest paid actor, posted a video to Instagram addressing the "false" report, claiming it left him "baffled".
Alongside the clip, he wrote: "Settin’ the record straight. The interview never happened. Never said those words.
"If I ever had an issue with someone, a group, community or a generation — I’d seek them out, create dialogue and do my best to understand them.
"Criticizing ain’t my style. I don’t cast stones and we all get to be who we are."
The Daily Star reported how Johnson – who Forbes reckon to be worth a staggering $165 million (£130m) – applauded the fact that nowadays anyone can "be who they want to be".
But it continued to say that the 19st man-mountain raged at the constant offence touchy snowflakes take.
The 46-year-old reportedly said: "I don’t have to agree with what somebody thinks, who they vote for, what they voted for, what they think, but I will back their right to say or believe it.
“That’s democracy. So many good people fought for freedom and equality – but this generation are looking for a reason to be offended.
“If you are not agreeing with them, then they are offended.”
The 6ft 4in beefcake allegedly added: “People can be who they want, be with who they want and live how they want.
"That can only be a good thing.
"But generation snowflake or whatever you want to call them are actually putting us backwards.”
