Not all is well in the Fast and Furious 8 set

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson recently posted on his Instagram that he's finished shooting his scenes for Fast & Furious 8, the still-in-production eighth installment of the long-running Fast & Furious movie franchise, where he once again plays the role of Luke Hobbs. Now, four movies into the franchise and you'd think The Rock should be getting along fine with his co-stars but based on his post on the social media network, that doesn't seem to be the case.

In the post, while The Rock graciously praises his female co-stars, it's a "different story" with one or maybe even more with his male co-stars as he called him/them--in true The Rock fashion, of course--"candy asses." Since Johnson didn't reveal who the offending party is, we could only speculate on who it is. Vin Diesel? Tyrese Gibson? Ludacris? Your guess is as good as ours.

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 #ZeroToleranceForCandyAsses
