This is out of character for Dwayne ‘The Rock” Johnson. On Monday he took to Instagram to slam Fast and Furious co-stars, prompting people to suspect the ‘cast family’ may not be as tight as we have believed. He is in his final week of filming the upcoming movie Fast and Furious 8, and while he touted his female costars saying how much he loved them all, not so much love for the men he works with.
On Instagram The Rock uploaded a video of him throwing a guy into a wall, a scene from the movie. Then he captioned the video, “Some conduct themselves as stand-up men and true professionals, while others don’t”. The ones that don’t are too chicken to do anything about it anyway”. Candy Asses.”
This is my final week of shooting #FastAndFurious8. There's no other franchise that gets my blood boiling more than this one. An incredible hard working crew. UNIVERSAL has been great partners as well. My female co-stars are always amazing and I love 'em. My male co-stars however are a different story. Some conduct themselves as stand up men and true professionals, while others don't. The ones that don't are too chicken shit to do anything about it anyway. Candy asses. When you watch this movie next April and it seems like I'm not acting in some of these scenes and my blood is legit boiling – you're right. Bottom line is it'll play great for the movie and fits this Hobbs character that's embedded in my DNA extremely well. The producer in me is happy about this part😉. Final week on FAST 8 and I'll finish strong. #IcemanCometh #F8 #ZeroToleranceForCandyAsses
He doesn’t name who he is talking about so let’s play guess who???
Here is the cast of the movie, Vin Diesel, Helen Mirren, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Kurt Russell, Jason Statham, Charlize Theron, and Scott Eastwood. The Rock went on to blast the cast saying, “When you watch this movie next April and it seems like I’m not acting in some of these scenes and my blood is legit boiling, you’re right. Know your role and shut your mouth.”
Turns out the beef is with none other than Vin Diesel, and according to TMZ, yesterday Vin and The Rock had a secret meeting on the Fast and Furious 8 set to hash things out. Apparently the two were butting heads in part because Vin is a producer and has made decisions that didn’t sit well with The Rock.
According to TMZ the cast is angry at The Rock for causing a stir just a week before filming ends. TMZ says no word if they resolved their issues. Fast and Furious 8 comes out April 14th2017.
