Dwayne Johnson And Vin Diesel Feud Is No More, Confirms Actor
Dwayne Johnson said that Vin Diesel, his Fast & Furious star, has ended their rivalry. The two had a “meeting to clarify” their differences.
For those of you who don’t want to interrupt former wrestlers every move and moment, here’s some context. Johnson posted an Instagram photo in 2016 to thank the women who worked with him on The Fate of the Furious.
Johnson continued, “My male co-stars however, are a different story.” Johnson said that some men are stand-up men and professionals while others are not. Johnson said, “Those who don’t do this are too chicken s**ty to do anything about it anyway.” Candy asses. Although he deleted the post it was saved and screenshotted by many people. There was much speculation about who or what the actor was referring too.
The post that called out “candy asses” was believed to be about Vin Diesel, who had adopted a tough love approach to set. This was something he admitted to earlier this year in an interview. Johnson was shocked to hear Johnson’s statement. He said that he had “laughed hard” at Johnson’s explanation.
According to an interview by Vanity Fair, tensions between the actors have cooled down. Johnson stated that Johnson wanted to avoid drama and would not be sharing scenes with Diesel in The Fate of the Furious. “I felt that it was the best thing to have done. It’s for everyone.
However, he did admit that it was a mistake to post publicly about Diesel’s problems. It caused a firestorm. It was, however, …[it seemed] like every crew member found their ways to me and either quietly thanked or sent me a message,” said the actor. I shouldn’t have shared this… “I meant what I said when I said it. It was wrong to say it publicly.
Johnson and Diesel managed to resolve their dispute despite the “firestorm”. Johnson said, “Well, it was a meeting.” It was not peaceful, however. It was a meeting of clarity. We had a great chat in my trailer and it was from that conversation that it became clear that we were on two different ends of the spectrum. He and I agreed to let it be.
