After the reported drama between Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Vin Diesel last year, there is a new feud heating up in the Fast & Furious franchise.

For months, Tyrese Gibson has been blasting his co-star for his upcoming spinoff film based off of his character in the franchise, Luke Hobbes, with Gibson saying it has been derailing their plans for the original franchise. “Everybody’s coming at me like I’m hating on Dwayne about his spinoff but I’m not. The truth is, I just he was releasing it at a different time,” Gibson told TMZ in mid-October.

“He’s the reason we’re pushing the release date back now. I just got a problem with Dwayne, it appears that he’s being selfish, it appears that he’s so focused on furthering his own self-interests,” he continued referencing Fast 9′s date being pushed from 2019 to 2020.

On Wednesday, November 1, Gibson continued to fuel his dislike for Johnson with an Instagram post that featured himself and Vin Diesel in a joking headlock with Johnson standing beside them. “Hello world………. hello loyal fans and loved ones from OUR fast universe…….. I’m sorry to announce that if Dewayne is in Fast9 there will no more Roman Peirce – You mess with family and my daughters survival I mess with yours……… close your eyes dude you’re a “Clown”…… #CandyAssBitchMade All my real one…. Men on integrity… my real ones out here stand UP…… folks that GP to the gym and get big naturally #NoJuice #NoOJ spin off huh? Spin off these nuts selfish champ…… pause notice who’s got his arms around my shoulder and who’s standing alone -#OurChildrenMatter,” he wrote alongside the photo.

Shortly after he then took to his Instagram again to post a photo of himself with his late co-star Paul Walker and The Rock purposefully cropped out of the photo, writing, “Cropped #ShaylaRocks the real #CandyAssIsWearingBlack.”

Despite Gibson’s harsh words and criticisms of The Rock, the actor has not commented on the feud or what Gibson has said about him.
