Did The Rock Fire Subtle Shots At Tyrese Over “Fast 9” Criticisms?

Prior to Tyrese’s social media breakdown over the custody battle with his ex-wife, Norma Gibson, the singer/actor was in a one-sided feud with The Rock over the “Fast and Furious” franchise.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Tyrese took to Instagram to express his frustration with The Rock for signing on for a “Fast and Furious” spinoff, which in turn pushed back the release date for the ninth installment of the “Fast and Furious” films. At the time, The Rock completely ignored Tyrese’s attacks, but now it appears he has finally addressed the conflict.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

In an exclusive interview with Entertainment Weekly, the actor discussed his decision to do a spinoff about his “Fast and Furious” character Lucas Hobbs. He also seemed to have addressed his co-star, Tyrese.

“It’s been a challenging process because I feel like my intention from day one, when I first joined the cast, was to hopefully come in, have fun, and create a character that people will hopefully like and try to elevate the franchise,” The Rock, whose real name is Dwayne Johnson said. “But in the process of elevating the franchise, I have always thought that in order for this to have real longevity and legs, we should spin out and create characters that can live on their own.”

“At the end of the day, the only thing I want to do is make a great movie for the fans,” Johnson told the publication. “I never ever get wrapped up in the sludge of the bullsh*t that can be connected at times to a franchise. So I never get dragged into it. I never respond to any of that.”
