Actor Tyrese Gibson is responding to “Fast & Furious” co-star Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s recent comments about their co-stars.
On Monday, The Rock slammed his male co-stars for being “candy asses.” After reading his Instagram post, many were left wondering which cast mates The Rock was targeting… Vin Diesel, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, Kurt Russell, Jason Statham, and/or Scott Eastwood?
Tyrese cleared his name, writing on Instagram, "why are you guys so impressionable? A man wouldn't be singing from his heart and soul to another mans little angel if he had a problem with her dad.”
He went on, "Does any of us know why bro decided to jump out there with his post? No...Would one assume that IF he's going to jump out there and generalize and say 'Male Co-Stars' he would be more clear and call out names??? Of course he should of—Let me calm you guys all the way down...I don't know WHO he has a problem and I don't have any details of WHAT those problems are—as a matter of fact if I DID know I would tell you s--t!!!!”
Tyrese also praised The Rock, saying, "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.”
He also put the spotlight on his late co-star Paul Walker, who died in the middle of shooting “Fast & Furious 7.” Tyrese said, "I'm personally not doing this for anyone but my brother Paul Walker. This franchise is not about and has #Never been about anyone of us individually it's about the #FASTFAMILY - the TRIBE."
Tyrese has since deleted the post.
