Dwayne Johnson: How Did He Diss Vin Diesel Now?

by at .

Dwayne Johnson just wrapped filming on Fast 8.

Soon afterward, he took to Instagram and showed cast and crew members from the movie with praise and gratitude.

Well, MOST cast and crew members, that is.

"Finished strong and on to the next. That's an officially wrap on #FastAndFurious8. Thank you to our director @fgarygray for the vision and execution," Johnson wrote as a caption to the image above.

Fair enough, right?

It's also a good thing and a nice thing to thank one's director.

But then Johnson continued as follows:

"Thank you to all my fellow co-stars for the daily effort and grind. Scott Eastwood you handsome sumbitch! Natalie Emmanuel I have a cold Budweiser ready for you and Tyrese Gibson you still have the biggest smile and forehead I've ever seen."

This is how Johnson concluded his message:

"And a huge THANK YOU to our hard working production crew - the backbone of our business. Your kind words meant a lot to me last night - thank you!

"In the end, we all rallied, as great teams do, kicked ass and will deliver an amazing movie to the world. Proud of our entire FAST FAMILY."

That's a very kind sentiment, except there's clearly someone in the Fast Family who Johnson failed to mention:

Vin Diesel.

We somehow doubt this was an accidental oversight.

A couple weeks ago, Johnson went on a social media tirade against an unnamed male co-star who he seemed "unprofessional" and called, quite simply, a "candy ass."

He wrote:

“Some conduct themselves as stand up men and true professionals, while others don’t. The ones that don’t are too chicken sh*t to do anything about it anyway. Candy asses.

"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.”

It didn't take long for sources to confirm that his beef was with Diesel.

Insiders told TMZ that Diesel let the power of being a producer go to his head.

He allegedly acted like a giant dick on set, berating other actors, showing up late and generally acting like a jerk.

Should Johnson receive some flak for not calling Diesel out by name in his Instagram rant? Perhaps.

But most crew members say Johnson was a true, hard-working, generous professional on set. They say Diesel was the opposite.

The Rock vs. Vin Diesel

How has Diesel responded to this feud?

By briefly acknowledging its existence and by saying he'll soon tell everyone absolutely everything.

He's yet to actually do this.

Tyrese, meanwhile, has come out and said nice things about both Johnson and Diesel, trying hard not to take sides.

No other co-star has commented on the bad blood.

The first Fast 8 trailer is due in December and the movie will hit theaters in April.

It will be interesting to see who is sent out on the press tour and what they say, won't it?
