Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – A day after Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson took to Instagram to say that he is pissed off with his male co-stars in the latest installment of the “Fast and Furious” franchise, reports surfaced saying that he was referring to Vin Diesel.
An insider also claimed that Johnson posted such on his Instagram account because he was emotional and got heated with some of the guys on set. The actor, producer and wrestler said in his Instagram post that he loves working with the crew of “Furious 8,” the production company, which is Universal Studios Entertainment, and his female co-stars, whom he dubbed as amazing. He also pointed out that his male co-stars were not so great to work with.
He shared in his post, "Some conduct themselves as stand up men and true professionals, while others don't. The ones that don't are too chicken [expletive] to do anything about it anyway. Candy asses." Johnson said that he was on his last week of shooting “Furious 8.”
Johnson did not drop names on his post but his mal co-stars in “Furious 8” are Diesel, Scott Eastwood, Tyrese , Jason Statham and Ludacris Diesel was actually the one Johnson was pertaining to and that they have a beef between them that it has affected filming. Rumor has it that the two had a secret meeting in the middle of filming in an attempt to resolve their differences. There have been no confirmations about this yet.
If the reports are true that he had a beef with Diesel, he added in his Instagram post that when people watch the movie this April they would see like he is not 'acting' in some scenes.
A representative for Johnson said that shooting “Furious 8” was not easy for anyone but it was especially hard for the wrestler as things did not feel the same this time around. The source shared, "Some of the guys did some small things that pissed him off, so he snapped.” Johnson then called them out but the people or the person he was pertaining to in his post was didn't 'man up' and say whatever they were talking about to Johnson’s face.
Johnson is also working on other movies like “Jumanji” and “Baywatch.”
