Vin Diesel’s “Fast and Furious” character Dominic Toretto says he doesn’t have friends. Now Diesel may have one fewer friend in real life, too.
We reported on Tuesday that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson ranted on Instagram about “candy asses” who were on the set of “Furious 8.” At that point, it was all speculation as to whom he was referring. Well, now TMZ is reporting a “candy ass” has been revealed, and it’s none other than Vin Diesel himself.
Johnson got real in his rant, calling out some of his male co-stars for being unprofessional. He also said they unprofessional ones were “too chicken shit to do anything about it anyway.”
Diesel is one of the producers on the “Fast and Furious” films. Could he really be acting unprofessionally?
Actually, TMZ says the fact that Diesel is a producer could be the cause of the conflict. Some decisions Diesel made during production reportedly weren’t popular with Johnson. The two even supposedly had a secret meeting to try to resolve the beef.
We already said that Dominic Toretto doesn’t have friends. That’s because he’s got family. And families fight. If this is true, hopefully The Rock and Vin Diesel can repair their relationship, even if it’s just a quarter mile at a time.
HuffPost has reached out to reps from both parties and will update this post accordingly.
