Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson Writes Insulting Instagram Post About Male ‘Fast 8’ Co-Stars
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson took to social media on Monday to call out some of his male Fast 8 co-stars for being unprofessional.
THE ROCK IN TROUBLE WITH FAST 8 CO-STARS
Fast 8, the eighth installment in the successful Fast and the Furious film franchise, is scheduled to wrap shooting in a week and a half. The Rock took this opportunity to applaud Universal and his female co-stars, and to criticize some of his male colleagues. See the post below:
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
Understandably, the co-stars are not pleased with this negative public appraisal. While the tweet was vague as to who it was aimed at, many consider this worse than if it had been targeted. “The male co-stars think Rock was out of line to talk cr*p,” TMZ said, “but given that he did, they think it’s unforgivable he wasn’t specific because now they’re all suspects.”
Some reports guess that The Rock has a current beef with Fast and Furious star and producer Vin Diesel, though this has not been confirmed. Just two years ago at the wrap of Furious 7, The Rock and Diesel stood side by side with co-star Tyrese Gibson with the caption, “Shout out to my bros The Rock and Vin.”
His female co-stars, while complimented in the text, are not happy with the Rock’s social media behavior. “This is a hell of a way to end [filming,]” a source told TMZ, and commented that “extreme egos” all around have caused multiple conflicts during filming.
