Dwayne Johnson posted this cryptic rant across his social media accounts yesterday:

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 shit 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. Bottom line is it’ll play great for the movie and fits this Hobbs character that’s embedded in my DNA extremely well. The producer in me is happy about this part?. Final week on FAST 8 and I’ll finish strong. #IcemanCometh #F8

Everyone initially thought it was newcomer Scott Eastwood. Well, according to TMZ it’s none other than star Vin Diesel himself! Apparently, the beef is over creative direction, but it has not been confirmed. Johnson has never posted anything like this about the franchise and rarely posts anything negative so many are scratching their heads. Is it a marketing tactic to build hype for the franchise? Did Johnson push to get his win back since Toretto beat his character Hobbs in their previous fight? Is this real? Is it fake? Is it just hype? Let us know in the comments.
