*Tyrese believes that his “Fast 8” co-star Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson could not have been referring to him when he blasted his male co-stars as “chicken s–t … candy asses” in an Instagram post earlier this week.
“I think Dwayne aka DJ happens to be one of the most humble, down to earth and professional people I’ve ever worked with and more importantly he’s my brother we have NEVER had a problem and will never have a problem,” the singer-actor wrote Tuesday on Instagram. “WE are good over here.”
That message, since deleted, was accompanied by a video of Johnson singing “Happy Birthday” to Tyrese’s daughter.
As previously reported, Johnson took to Instagram on Monday trashing some unidentified male co-stars on the set.
“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,” Johnson wrote. “Some conduct themselves as stand up men and true professionals, while others don’t.”
“The ones that don’t are too chicken s–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,” he added. “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.”
