Has Vin Diesel gone soft? Only in his heart. The "Fast and Furious" star was a recent victim of the paparazzi treatment -- with someone taking a very unflattering photo of him on a balcony. This is the kind of thing some stars (especially female stars) face all the time, but now it's happening to a male action hero.
So Vin took to Instagram to fight back. He shared two photos, one writing that "body shaming is always wrong!" no matter how you look, and the second showing that he actually looks pretty darn good.
It is amazing the response from the journalists who I have been talking to for the last two days in New York. Today one wanted to see the dad bod. Haha. I am wondering if I should show the picture... Body-shaming is always wrong! What do you think? #LastWitchHunter
The pic from yesterday... For those who wanted the show... For all the angels that love dad bod regardless... I will post an exclusive video on my Facebook when I am done with press today. #LastWitchHunter #HappyCreative
So as you can read from the second caption, he was planning to post a video to Facebook, where he has more than 95 million fans. Here's that video, which has nothing to do with his body and everything to do with his work (which is probably how he likes it):

Love that song! He's right, it is addictive. Forget the shallow "dad bod" comments and just hit replay.
