You know who must be loving these new Instagram rants? Vin Diesel. 'Cause that right there is the last time his name is coming up. Instead, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and his posts are back in focus, but the guy taking the shots now is his "Fast and Furious" co-star Tyrese.
Tyrese says he has no beef with The Rock, but he did insert himself into The Rock's world by responding to one of Johnson's posts -- that didn't even seem connected to the "Fast" franchise at all. Tyrese's concern is apparently that The Rock might sign a deal for a "Fast" spinoff following Hobbs, potentially delaying the scheduled release date for "Fast 9."
Here's The Rock's initial seemingly innocent post:
Secret weapon. Many productive meetings and big business deals have been sealed with a handshake at my GSD (Get Shit Done) table that's inside my trailer. This table holds a lot of great mana (spirit/power) and energy. And if these wood slabs could talk... well it's best they can't talk for national security purposes. Great shot by @sevenbucksprod President @hhgarcia41 capturing our post meeting aftermath. #SecretWeapon #GSDTable #LetsGetShitDone ✔️
Here's a screencap of Tyrese's comment on that post:
The Rock didn't post a reply, but Tyrese continued with a couple of other posts:
When you see the bullshit with @TheRock playing out in front of you and you can't say anything cause they don't want you to win the battles and lose the war - reckless? Who me? Nah........ I'm just the last of the real ones in this town who speaks his mind openly and hope that folks grow from the truth........... The real ones do........ The real ones know that God is mad at us all cause we are NOT honoring him and giving him all the praise and glory for our BLESSED and significant life..... We have convinced ourselves that we live this life cause we work hard?? What about God? God has nothing to do with this?? Nothing? He's made - He's reminding us all that HE IS GOD he can givith life and in a blink of an eyes taketh it away....... What profits a man to gain the whole world and lose his soul... I thank God everyday that I still have my SOUL..... Without God and my soul I would be empty chasing things and people that literally mean nothing to me...... praying for all of you guys who Were directly effected by these hurricanes and these natural disasters worldwide, africa, india, and Bahamas and in Turks and Caicos and here in America- I've been in and out of the hospital 5 times dealing with health issues and I still sent 50k to houston to help in anyway I can cause it's about being selfless......... I went as far as I could go to help the cause I hope they do right by those funds and get it to the people....... You're on the Forbes list is that all you're donating? Oh ok........ God bless
And here's a deleted post from Tyrese insisting he has no problem with The Rock (although he didn't like "Baywatch"), this is all about keeping the release date for the fans ... and probably his own paycheck so he can keep his kids in private school:
The Rock may have tried to reach out to Tyrese, possibly over email which wouldn't work, as Tyrese explained in this most recent post on the subject:
The Rock can't exactly complain about people taking their beefs to Instagram, since he made this move famous last year when he called his male "Fast 8" co-stars "candy asses." There's been a lot of drama in the "Fast" family and we can probably expect it to continue through "Fast 9," "Fast 10," and the inevitable spinoffs.
"Fast 9" is scheduled to open April 19, 2019; "Fast 10" is scheduled for April 2, 2021.
