Did The Rock just throw shade at his Fast 8 costars on Instagram?

Actor and former wrestling star, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson recently threw A LOT of shade at his Fast & Furious 8 male co-stars when he posted a photo on Instagram with the caption:

“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 part­čśë. Final week on FAST 8 and I’ll finish strong.”

Johnson never directly named any of his co-stars in the post (or anywhere else) so fans had to try and figure out who he was referring to by process of elimination and rumors. Some fans think the beef is between The Rock and one of the new actors added to the franchise (Scott Eastwood, Kurt Russell, and Jason Statham), because of how close the cast seemed in past movies prior to the new cast.

Other people are saying it’s probably one of the returning actors like Vin Diesel, who, according to rumors reports, had a meeting┬árecently with The Rock to try and squash their beef before the movie finished filming.

However, all of this could be a ploy to drum up buzz and free promo for the movie before the last week of filming. I guess we’ll have to wait until next April to┬ásee when it looks like The Rock’s┬áNOT acting in certain scenes and really pissed off to know who he’s talking about on IG!



Tyrese made it clear that The Rock isn’t talking about him.
