If you look at the Instagram accounts of many of the stars of Fast 8, the upcoming newest addition to the Fast and the Furious franchise, you would think they were having a blast on set, but it seems there are some on set that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has an issue with.

Usually positive and upbeat, fans know it has to be bad for Johnson to take to his social media to blast co-stars, which is exactly what he did. On Monday, August 8, Johnson posted a quick clip from the film in character as Luke Hobbs beating up some security while he is in jail, and had quite the angry words to go along with, but he didn’t name names.

“This is my final week of shooting #FastAndFurious8. There’s no other franchise that gets my blood boiling more than this one. An incredible hard working crew. UNIVERSAL has been great partners as well. My female co-stars are always amazing and I love ’em. My male co-stars however are a different story. Some conduct themselves as stand up men and true professionals, while others don’t. The ones that don’t are too chicken s–t to do anything about it anyway. Candy a–es.”

If that wasn’t bad enough he went on to add that because of some of his co-stars, some of the anger coming from his character in the movie is very, very real. “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. Bottom line is it’ll play great for the movie and it fits this Hobbs character that’s embedded in my DNA extremely well. The producer in me is happy about his part. Final week on Fast 8 and I will finish strong #IcemanCometh #F8 #ZeroToleranceForCandyAsses.”

Of course, now fans want to know who The Rock was talking about with a roster of A-list male stars on Fast 8 such as Vin Diesel, Scott Eastwood, Jason Statham, Tyrese and Kurt Russell just to name a few. Seemingly, none of replied to the comments but recently Eastwood did say in an interview, “I’m on this Fast and the Furious movie right now, and everyone goes back to their trailer. I stick around and say, ‘Why are you setting up the shot like this?’ I want to learn.” As well, after Johnson posted his rant, longtime Fast and Furious star Vin Diesel took to Facebook to post a video in which he says, “The last week has been so crazy working here. I haven’t been able to post but soon I’m going to be home with my angels and then I’ll be able to post a little bit more…Always be you and stay positive out there,” but it is unclear if that was a response or not.

This is my final week of shooting #FastAndFurious8. There’s no other franchise that gets my blood boiling more than this one. An incredible hard working crew. UNIVERSAL has been great partners as well. My female co-stars are always amazing and I love ’em. My male co-stars however are a different story.
