The beef between Dwayne Johnson and Vin Diesel is still not over! ‘The Rock’ refuses to apologize for slamming his ‘Fast 8’ co-star in a full-blown Facebook tirade back in Aug., according to a brand new report! Find out why he’s sticking by his ‘candya**’ comment!
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, 44, refuses to kowtow to any “Jabronis.” At last, the former WWE star opened up about his former feud with his Fast 8 co-star Vin Diesel, 49. Seeming to have no regrets, he asserted boldly, “I was very clear with what I said,” telling the The Los Angeles Times on Nov. 19. “I’ve been in the game a long time. Would Universal [Pictures] have preferred that didn’t happen? Sure, we talked about it. The irony is after that and as they do their tracking and all their analysis, the interest in Fast 8 shot through the roof to a whole other level.”
Their alleged beef started back in Aug., when Dwayne praised the leading ladies in the film after production wrapped, but didn’t do the same for the guys. He went on a Facebook rant about his male co-stars acting like amateurs, with some choice words to describe their behavior. “Some conduct themselves as stand up men and true professionals, while others don’t. The ones that don’t are too chicken sh*t to do anything about it anyway. Candy a**es. 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.” Even though he didn’t call anyone by name, it seems word still got around.
Days later, it was discovered that Dwayne’s tirade was actually about Vin, according to TMZ. He even reportedly met up with his co-star for a secret meeting in Atlanta to discuss their on-set drama. However, many are still convinced that the whole ordeal is merely a prank, and a source previously told us EXCLUSIVELY that their feud is long over, but they were hyping up their conflict in order to “sell tickets.” With WrestleMania 33 scheduled for Apr. 2, 2017 and Fast 8 hitting theaters two weeks later, who knows what’s ahead!
