Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson isn’t normally the type of guy to start drama on social media, but this week he did just that after posting an epic rant on social media about “some” of his Fast 8 male co-stars.

Despite the uproar it reportedly caused on set, the 44-year-old doesn’t regret speaking out. In another post on Wednesday, August 10, Johnson included a personal message from the set, as well as a lengthy note. “My FINAL WEEK of shooting #FastAndFurious. There’s no greatness ever achieved alone… it’s always a team effort. We promised an epic prison break out for you guys and we delivered. Huge thank you to my ohana (family) stunt coordinator JJ Perry and his bad ass fearless stunt team, as well as my cousin and incredible stunt double @samoanstuntman. Thank you team for the willingness to ‘die hard’ and drop your blood & sweat daily for our movie,” he began.

He then continued with a bit of a reflection on his former post that caused so much drama. “You guys reading this know how much I believe in the idea of team effort. That means respecting every person, their time and their value when they step onto my set or partner with our production company. And like with any team, that’s a family, there’s gonna be conflict. Family is gonna have differences of opinion and fundamental core beliefs. To me, conflict can be a good thing, when it’s followed by great resolution. I was raised on healthy conflict and welcome it. And like any family, we get better from it.”

While the former wrestler never named who he had a problem with on set, it was quickly reported by TMZ that it was in fact Fast and Furious star Vin Diesel who he had a problem with. Tension was reportedly so bad on set that the two men had to have a “private meeting” to try to hash things out.

My FINAL WEEK of shooting #FastAndFurious. There’s no greatness ever achieved alone.. it’s always a team effort. We promised an epic prison break out for you guys and we delivered. HUGE THANK YOU to my ohana (family) stunt coordinator JJ Perry and his bad ass fearless stunt team – as well as my cousin and incredible stunt double @samoanstuntman. Thank you team for the willingness to “die hard” and drop your blood & sweat daily for our movie. #MyStuntBrothers #Loco4Life You guys reading this know how much I believe in the idea of TEAM EFFORT. That means respecting every person, their time and their value when they step on to my set or partner with our production company. And like with any team – that’s a family – there’s gonna be conflict. Family is gonna have differences of opinion and fundamental core beliefs. To me, conflict can be a good thing, when its followed by great resolution. I was raised on healthy conflict and welcome it. And like any family, we get better from it. At the end of the day me and #F8 co-stars all agree on the most important thing: Delivering an incredible movie to the world. #Fast8 #IcemanCometh #FamilyGrowth
