What dad bod? After Vin Diesel was caught in a not-so-flattering moment and called out for his ‘dad bod,’ he shut down the haters with an epic message — and totally hot pic! See it all here!
It’s hard to deny that Vin Diesel, 48, has an incredible body. So when photos of the Fast & Furious actor showed a much softer physique than Vin’s signature ripped abs and arms, fans went crazy over his new, chubbier “dad bod.” Just days later, he proved all of the haters wrong by showing off his true “dad bod” on Instagram: six-pack abs! He even took the opportunity to call out body shamers! You go, Vin!
While Vin was out for a smoke break on his balcony in Miami, Florida, on Oct. 6, cameras caught him shirtless, showing a bit of a belly. Once he saw the body-shaming reaction the pics sparked, Vin was not afraid to shut them right down! Vin posted a shot on Oct. 11 with a t-shirt on and included an important message, writing, “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?”
We were already applauding Vin for standing up for his belly, but then he went a step further and revealed what his “dad bod” actually looks like…totally ripped! “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,” he captioned the pic. Needless to say, it was the ultimate comeback!
As he promised, Vin posted a video to his Facebook on the afternoon of Oct. 12. The vid is for Ciara‘s cover of The Rolling Stones‘ “Paint It Black” that features a first look into Vin’s new movie The Last Witch Hunter!
As Vin gears up for the release of The Last Witch Hunter, clearly he’s prepared to fire back at any haters that want to put him down. Now that we know his personal definition of “dad bod,” though, we think he’s done a pretty solid job at forever shutting down his body shamers!
