The ninth installment of the “Fast & Furious” franchise was set to be released in April of 2019, but production got pushed back for unspecified reasons — and it looks like Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s co-stars think it’s all his fault.
“Congratulations to @TheRock and your brother in law aka 7 bucks producing partner @hhgarcia41 for making the fast and the furious franchise about YOU,” Tyrese Gibson took the first shot in an Instagram post. “And like you, DJ even if they call I will not be deleting this post – Gn folks see you in 2020 April #FastFamily right? Nah….. it’s about #TeamDewayne #3yrs will it be worth the wait? #NoShaw just Hobbs will this be another #BayWatch?”
The actor then doubled down on his criticism, posting a picture a movie poster from the franchise, accusing Johnson of breaking up the “Fast Family” by allegedly accepting a spin-off opportunity and writing, “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.”
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…..

Later, fellow “Fast & Furious” star Vin Diesel also took to Instagram to throw some shade at Johnson. He shared a photo of him, Gibson and the late Paul Walker, all of whom starred in the franchise. For the caption, he simply wrote, “Brotherhood.”
