Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is making up for his past mistakes.

The Black Adam action star over the weekend shared a video on social media documenting a recent visit to a 7-Eleven in Hawaii in which he bought out the stores supply of Snickers bars and left them for any hungry customers to take for free.

It wasn't just a generous move, but one Johnson, 50, was doing as an act of redemption.

As the Oahu native explained, 36 year earlier — when he was just 14 years old — he used to go to that very 7-Eleven daily and steal himself a King-sized Snickers on his way to the gym because he couldn't afford to buy one. "I was broke as hell," he explained in his Instagram post of his pre-workout snack, recalling that "the same clerk was there every day and always just turned her head and never busted me."

Months later, Johnson and his family were evicted from Hawaii. And while the pro-wrestler turned actor found massive success in the years following, his shoplifting weighed on him.

That's what prompted him to settle up with that same convenience store location. "Had to 'right the wrong' back home in Hawaii after all these years," the Oahu native wrote on his Instagram post uploaded Sunday.

He also generously picked up the tab for others waiting to pay and posed for selfies with his fellow 7-Eleven shoppers.

"Thank you so much. I appreciate you," Johnson told the clerk. "If somebody looks like they're stealing Snickers, give them these so they don't steal them "

"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 stranger's faces," he said, adding, "I finally exorcised this damn chocolate demon that's been gnawing at me for decades."
