Tyrese Gibson posted a rambling rant on his Instagram page Wednesday. In it, Gibson claimed that he would quit the Fast & Furious franchise if Dwayne Johnson (aka The Rock) returned for the ninth installment of the series. He also accused The Rock of juicing.
Check it out:
Hello world………. hello loyal fans and loved ones from OUR fast universe…….. I’m sorry to announce that if Dewayne is in Fast9 there will no more Roman Peirce – You mess with family and my daughters survival I mess with yours……… close your eyes dude you’re a “Clown”…… #CandyAssBitchMade All my real one…. Men on integrity… my real ones out here stand UP…… folks that GP to the gym and get big naturally #NoJuice #NoOJ spin off huh? Spin off these nuts selfish champ…… pause notice who’s got his arms around my shoulder and who’s standing alone – #OurChildrenMatter
Aside from the litany of spelling mistakes (including his own character’s name), this is just the latest in a series rants in this seemingly one-sided feud. Gibson is angry that Johnson is doing a spin-off of the series based around his character Luke Hobbs. That spin-off has apparently delayed the ninth movie in the series by one year.
While it wouldn’t be a shock if the utterly ripped Johnson (who happens to be 45) was using some kind of steroid or HGH to keep his physique, who really cares? I sincerely doubt that’s rare in Hollywood. Unless they start testing for PEDs on movie sets, does it matter?
Meanwhile, Gibson’s personal life appears to be a mess, as he’s currently in a custody battle with his ex-wife.
At this point, The Rock has reached “national treasure” status, so there is zero chance Gibson can win this feud. He’d be better off just shutting up and continuing with the franchise.
