Game of Thrones had Battle of the Bastards, Fast 8 has Battle of the Balds, which was declared when everybody’s favourite Mr Muscle, The Rock, posted to Facebook slamming Vin Diesel.
Well, it wasn’t as blatant as that.
The pro-wrestler turned actor, took to the social media site and posted a cryptic message about his ‘male co-stars’ claiming that they got his blood boiling on set, however it is now thought that the message was a direct reference to Vin Diesel, reports TMZ.
The Facebook post read:
This is my final week of shooting Fast & Furious 8. There’s no other franchise that gets my blood boiling more than this one. An incredible hard working crew. Universal Studios Entertainment has been great partners as well. My female co-stars are always amazing and I love ’em.
My male co-stars however are a different story. Some conduct themselves as stand up men and true professionals, while others don’t. The ones that don’t are too chicken shit to do anything about it anyway. Candy asses. When you watch this movie next April and it seems like I’m not acting in some of these scenes and my blood is legit boiling – you’re right.
According to sources who spoke to TMZ, Vin Diesel ‘didn’t like Monday 7am calls’ so he had them postponed to 10am to meet his requirements.
Apparently the crew were also really fed up with Diesel’s ‘out of control arrogance’ and claim that he often ‘criticised The Rock’s acting’.
Sounds to me like Vin was a right candy ass.
But he’s not been too quiet on the matter himself posting a very bizarre video to Instagram:
I’m gonna be blunt here, hover over that video above and click play, it’s one of the most terrifying spectacles I’ve ever laid eyes on.
Vin Diesel, right in my face, unshaven, with his beyond deep voice, telling me about the word ‘happy’ and smiling his terrifying smile.
It’s the stuff of nightmares, it really is. This video will haunt my dreams. Vin Diesel smiling his smile just before he butchers me in the midst of some petrifying nightmare.
However at the end of the video, and at peak psycho, Vinny says ‘give me a second and I will tell you everything. Evvvveerrrryyyyything’.
I wonder what he’s referring to… Only time will tell.
