If it seems that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has been silent about Tyrese Gibson‘s recent rants and string of complaints, that might be because he’s too busy.
Tyrese has been having Instagram tantrums for weeks behind news of Dwayne’s Fast and Furious spin-off about his character Hobbs. Dwayne attempted to reach out to Tyrese in private only to be shot down publicly. But, it seems that Tyrese tested the last of his patience with this post after it was announced that Fast and Furious 9 had been pushed back a whole year for the Hobbs project.
Diversity, love, multi ethnic worldwide multi generational, United Nations, One Race, Fast Family…… Until Dewayne showed up I guess this whole time he had a problem cause he wasn't the ONLY ONE on the movie poster……….. I guess dreams do come true congratulations to @hhgarcia41 and @therock you guys are just amazing you really broke up the #FastFamily I tried to warn you guys… You thought I was hating…… I was simply fighting to keep the family together what makes us great is when you see us all TOGETHER we don't fly solo….. #MyLastPost today….. I got 3 years of venting on this clown – They offered but YOU didn't have to agree with a solo #HobbsMovie #OriginalFastFamily we salute you and stand on your shoulders #VinDiesel #PaulWalker #RobCohen #RomanTej were offered a spin off we TURNED IT DOWN!!!
The Rock doesn’t normally seem to have the time to respond to the one-sided beef, but he found a moment between reps on Sunday! The wrestler-turned-actor hopped on Instagram to let everyone know that he’s been spending his days in the gym, investing in his physique and prepping for his next film.
Big dogs eat. As many of you know, it ain’t a size or gender thing…it’s a mentality thing. Shout to all my big dogs around the 🌎 as we’re over here quietly on our weekend grind earning sweat equity. Because at the end of the day, we’re always willing to put in the raw hard work for the one thing we relentlessly chase daily – the results. Heavy ass chains around your neck are always optional. Have a hungry and productive week 🤙🏾#HardestWorkersInTheRoom #BigDogsEat
If there was any confusion that he was getting pumped up his solo movie, Dwayne revealed earlier today that he’ll be clocking in shortly. He had even more shade for Tyrese as he explained that this project has been years in the making and that he’s hoping to expand the Fast & Furious franchise through the film, which is slated for release in July 26, 2019. As it turns out, this spin-off won’t exactly be a solo project, either, because The Rock will star alongside Jason Statham.
“I have a tremendous amount of respect for this franchise that I’ve enjoyed droppin’ blood and sweat in over the years” he wrote, “and my vision is to create greater opportunities for not only my fellow FF cast mates, but for other amazing actors as well who want to be a part of something new and cool.
Dwayne concluded the message and threw down the gauntlet, writing, “Let’s have some FUN and to quote, Hobbs the boss, if you don’t like it, we’re happy to beat that ass like a Cherokee drum. #HOBBS #SevenBucksProds #NewOpportunities #CandyAssesNeedNotApply.”
Daddy’s gotta go back to work ~ Hobbs. Pumped to expand and build out the FAST & FURIOUS universe in a cool, exciting way with our @sevenbucksprod, writer/producer Chris Morgan, producer Hiram Garcia and lead producer and my bigger twin, Neal Moritz. Thank you UNIVERSAL STUDIOS for being tremendous partners who see the big picture and for coming to us years ago with this spinoff idea. Huge shout to my brother, Jason Statham for the trust and wanting to create and deliver something fresh and bad ass for the fans. I have a tremendous amount of respect for this franchise that I’ve enjoyed droppin’ blood and sweat in over the years and my vision is to create greater opportunities for not only my fellow FF cast mates, but for other amazing actors as well who want to be a part of something new and cool. I want to use my spinoff platform to create new characters that fans will ultimately love to have fun with in multiple chapters and platforms. Film, TV, Digital, Virtual Reality etc.. the more opportunities we can create the better for the fans. Smart business. Let’s have some FUN and to quote, Hobbs the boss, if you don’t like it, we’re happy to beat that ass like a Cherokee drum. #HOBBS #SevenBucksProds #NewOpportunities #CandyAssesNeedNotApply JULY 2019
Tyrese had yet to respond as of press time, but we’re sure he’s drafting a reply right now.
