Vin Diesel adds new chapter to beef with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
It all started on August 8, when Dwayne Johnson appeared on Facebook to vent his dirty laundry. The actor wrote in a public post that they were wrapping up the shooting of Fast 8. He wasn’t happy with the way his male co-stars conducted themselves. Calling them “too chicken shit” and “candy asses” and the internet wondered who he was talking about.
“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,” he wrote.
“Tension has been building up for months,” a source told People. “Vin has been having problems with The Rock because The Rock keep showing up late for production,” the source explains. “Sometimes he doesn’t show up at all and he’s delaying the production.”
Another source told Page Six that Diesel “was constantly late [when we worked together].” The source went on saying that Diesel “acted like a diva and has held up production before” and that “it’s not surprising that he’s the one The Rock is calling out.”
Vin Diesel took it Wednesday night to Instagram to respond to the beef with “The Rock”. In a cryptic message he said that he would explain “everything” soon.
“So much has gone on this year. I can’t believe I wrapped two back to back pictures I both starred in and produced. Now I get to return to my family, my life… To me,” Diesel captioned the Instagram video.
“After being on set since literally Christmas to finally, finally, finally to come home,” the Fast & Furious star said, “and to learn the little angel [daughter Pauline] learned a new word. I’m going to have to share it with you, it’s more important than anything.”
“Her new word kind of describes my spirit and my soul, and most people who stay positive,” he continued, “The new word is ‘happy’. When I heard her say ‘happy,’ I just lit up in ways I can’t even describe.”
Then he paused before whispering cryptically, “So give me a second and I will tell you everything. Everything.”
