Dwayne Johnson, the star of "Fast and Furious," stirred quite a controversy after he posted a rant about his "Fast 8" male co-stars on Facebook, calling them unprofessional candy a---s. Although The Rock did not mention any names, everyone had a clue as to who it could be. TMZ has now confirmed our guesses.
TMZ has said that the "candy a----" of The Rock's rant is none other than the film's producer and leading actor, Vin Diesel. Apparently Diesel made some last-minute changes in the film that didn't sit well with "Ballers" star and frustration about the incident is what led him to post the rant.
Following the post going viral, there was serious tension on the sets and it didn't end until the two muscular hunks reportedly sat together on Tuesday to find a common ground. As fans know, the shooting is in its final stages and from the looks of it, the former WWE champ may not be brought back to the franchise if there is a "Fast and Furious 9."
The rant had come as a shock to The Rock's fans, because he is generally known to be a sweetheart on sets. Almost all his co-stars have only had nice things to say about him, whether it is about his kindness or his desire to make some positive change in the world.
Check out some of the great things that his co-stars have said about Johnson:
More importantly, he's a positive guy that wants to see good for people. I'm the same, man. We believe in love, we believe in laughter, and we believe in living right. When you find yourself with a person like that, that attitude becomes contagious, and together, you spread a lot of that positive energy. That's what we've done. - Kevin Hart (Sentral Intelligence)
As soon as you start, he is right in there, throwing punches, and he'll work on it until it's right. 'No, no, no, that's not going to work. Maybe I come in with this; I come back; smash boom,' and it's over. This is his domain. He's done, you know, we call it fake fighting because we're not really hitting each other. He's been doing that his whole career. It's like no one knows better than Dwayne how to sell something. - Jason Stathon (Furios 7)
