Well, who wouldn’t be? After Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson went off on his make co-stars in a rant-y Facebook post on Aug. 8, a new report says that everyone on the set is enraged that he called them out as ‘candy ass’ divas. Do you think The Rock was out of line?
Dwayne Johnson, AKA The Rock, 44, has a bunch of, well, furious co-stars on his hands! The Fast & Furious 8 cast is pissed off that he called them names on social media, sources tell TMZ. “Vin Diesel, Jason Statham, Kurt Russell, Tyrese, Ludacris, Scott Eastwood and others are all getting hounded by people who want to know who Rock was putting on blast,” the site reports. “The male co-stars think Rock was out of line to talk crap, [and think] it’s unforgivable he wasn’t specific because now they’re all suspects.” Yikes!
Another source tells the site that with only a week and a half of filming left to go, “this is a hell of a way” for The Rock to wrap up the project. There have also apparently been other fights due to “extreme egos” on set, but TMZ has learned that everyone agrees this public display of criticism wasn’t appropriate. Though his male co-stars are the ones under fire, the female actors on set are also miffed that the atmosphere has been ruined.
ICYMI, The Rock shared a post on Facebook dissing his fellow cast members. He started out by saying that the franchise gets his “blood boiling” more than any other project he’s participated in. He then praised his female co-stars, calling them “amazing”, but dragged the male actors by saying many of them are “chicken sh*t” and don’t act like “true professionals”. Shots fired, much?
HollywoodLifers, do you think The Rock’s co-stars have a right to be angry with him?
