It seems that famous actor Vin Diesel decided to talk about the feud that has been going on in relation to Fast & Furious. Apparently, the famous actor believes that there is no one to blame in this scandal, so we can surely say that Vin Diesel is not taking any sides.
Vin Diesel also shared a pic of himself and The Rock on Instagram as they were filming together a scene of the popular movies. The whole scandal emerged when Tyrese Gibson started criticizing Dwayne Johnson, also known as The Rock, for delaying the filming for the Fast & Furious 9. Gibson shared a message on social media in which it asked The Rock to stop delaying the project. The movie was announced to be released in 2020.
Allegedly, it is all linked to the fact that a spin-off will be released in 2019, focusing on the fight between the Fast & Furious characters played by Johnson and Jason Statham. It seems that this frustrated Tyrese Gibson, who also stars in Fast & Furious. He accused Johnson of making the franchise about him and claimed that the famous actor was a clown.
Of course, The Rock was not happy at all with this comment. “My goal from day 1 was to come in and create an exciting/fun character for the fans, elevate the franchise and built it out. #HobbsShaw2019,” he tweeted in response to Gibson’s claims. And now it seems that Vin Diesel, who has starred in the Fast & Furious franchise from the beginning, also made some comments about what happened.
“I know there has been a lot of speculation as to why the Fast 9 release date was pushed… but it would be unfair to say it is anyone’s fault,” Vin Diesel shared on social media. “As we plot the course to expand the Fast & Furious universe, one must be mindful to take stock of the roads we took to get here. The pillars of authenticity, family and most importantly, our loyal fan’s perspective has been instrumental in procuring success,” he added.
The famous actor went on to say that the “franchise is in need of maintenance. My good friend and the godfather of Universal, Ron Meyer has granted me the time to do just that. We have some very exciting news to share soon… stay tuned.” It is yet to see how this scandal will finally end.
