Tyrese Gibson wants to stop The Rock from riding off with the Fast And Furious franchise

Like all families, the Fast And Furious cast fight amongst themselves. Vin Diesel, who’s become the driving force behind the franchise, and newer addition Dwayne Johnson have had it out over who’s a “candy ass”; Michelle Rodriguez has threatened to go her own way if the writing for female characters remains so underwhelming; and we’re sure that, despite a lack of reports, Johnson and Jason Statham fought over the scalp balm while making Furious 7. But they’ve always managed to smooth things over in time to release another movie.

A new threat to their relative harmony has arisen, though, which co-star Tyrese Gibson seems to think will undo the franchise—that’d be the planned spin-off for Johnson and Statham. According to Screencrush, a photo posted to Johnson’s Instagram account of the Ballers actor hard at work on another mystery project is really grinding Gibson’s gears.


Apparently, Gibson posted a now-deleted comment that read “If you move forward with that #Hobbs Movie you will have purposely ignored the heart to heart moment we had in my sprinter. I don’t wanna hear from you until you remember what we talked about. I’m on your timeline cause you’re not responding to my texts messages. #FastFamily is just that a family……We don’t fly solo.” He makes a good point, since you can’t really have a family of one. Gibson then took things to his own timeline, posting a photo he took with Johnson, offering to settle their hash (which seems one-sided) via phone—because families work things out in FaceTime, not on Gmail.

There’s been no response from Johnson, but let’s just hope they settle this before Daddy Diesel gets involved.
