Dwayne Johnson on Fast 8 Cast: We're Family, But…

by at .

Dwayne Johnson has once again spoken out on the cast of Fast 8.

But he didn't drop the smackdown on any of them this time around.

Dwayne Johnson on Fast 8 Set

Earlier this week, Johnson stirred some controversy for practically the first time in his career, calling out an anonymous male co-star for that actor's behavior on set.

In an epic Instagram rant, Johnson WENT OFF on this individual, stating that he is a "candy ass" who is not a true professional or a "stand up" person.

"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," Johnson wrote.

The post took many fans by surprise.

Johnson, after all, is known as a jovial guy. When was the last time he was involved in any kind of scandal?

Moreover, ever since the tragic death of Paul Walker, the Fast & Furious cast has taken pride is being a close-knit community.

In the wake of Johnson's rant, sources told TMZ that his wrath has been aimed at Vin Diesel for awhile.

Diesel, who serves as a producer on Fast 8, reportedly shows up late for work and does not treat many on set with respect.

Conversely, according to a TMZ update, Johnson is kind, friendly, hard-working and gracious to all around him.

These latter points appear to be backed up by a new video on Johnson's Instagram account.

Along with the fun he is having with Fast 8 crew members above, Johnson wrote a lengthy caption to this footage.

It acknowledges the issues he had while filming.

"You guys reading this know how much I believe in the idea of TEAM EFFORT," the action star said.

"That means respecting every person, their time and their value when they step on to my set or partner with our production company."

There's a solid, subtle dig at Diesel, huh?

"And like with any team - that’s a family - there’s gonna be conflict," he added.

"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."

Concluded Johnson:

“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."

It's hard not to take Johnson's side in this, right?

The guy is simply beloved around Hollywood and around the country.

He appears to be very well-liked by the crew members above.

Diesel, conversely, allegedly left the set of this movie as soon as his filming was finished. He got the heck out of there.

He is yet to address the feud in public.

Should Johnson have done so? Maybe not. It may not have been the most professional decision.

But we've all been frustrated at work, right? We've all felt a need to vent.

That's what Johnson did here; he just happens to have millions of followers to whom he can vent.

We smell what the star is cooking and we remain anxious to share it with him at a table someday.
