Dave Bautista, 50, wasn’t afraid to speak out on his not-so-popular opinion about the Fast and the Furious franchise on social media! The Avengers: Endgame actor was responding to fans’ tweets on Twitter on June 28, when he admitted he wasn’t a big fan of the Vin Diesel features. One fan tweet suggested he play the villain in a Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and John Cena starring spin off of the action-packed films, but it didn’t take long for him to respond with what definitely seemed like a decline. “@TheRock and @JohnCena will get a Fast and Furious spin off also and @DaveBautista will Be the villain,” the fan tweet read. “…..thank you for your consideration… #idratherdogoodfilms,” Dave responded with a sick emoji and vomiting emoji.

Dave didn’t stop there either. When another fan with the Twitter handle “IBarfOnBabies” disagreed with his take on the Fast and the Furious films, he made sure to tweet back. “I love Bautista but the Fast franchise has some of the best and most creative action pieces in recent memory, easily among the most enjoyable movies of the past decade,” the fan tweeted. “I normally wouldn’t even engage but I think the fact that ‘I Barf On Babies’ is your twitter handle really says it all. … but thanks for the love dude. I really appreciate you keeping it positive and I totally respect your opinion,” Dave’s response read.

We’re not sure why Dave’s not a huge fan of the Fast and the Furious films but hey, everyone’s entitled to their own opinion! In addition to appearing in Avengers: Endgame and other Marvel based films such as Guardians of the Galaxy, Dave’s made a name for himself in the wrestling world. He is a former professional wrestler with a famous ring name of Batista. He became a six-time world champion in the World Heavyweight Championship and the WWE Championship.

Now that Dave is retired from the wrestling world, he is set to appear in more films in 2020, including the science fiction film Dune. The films he won’t be appearing in, though, are any kind of The Fast and the Furious films in the future!
