Dwayne Johnson’s social networking remark implying a feud with his ‘Fast and Furious’ co-star Vin Diesel caused some controversy. Dwayne Johnson has now stated that was not the proper thing to do.

Dwayne revealed more about his spat with Vin in an interview with Vanity Fair, especially about the now-deleted tweet in which the former lauded his lady co-stars on ‘The Fate of the Furious’ while condemning the professional behavior of certain of his male co-stars.

The tweet was later discovered to be an oblique allusion to Vin, with Dwayne telling the magazine that nothing particular occurred when he chose to post it, and it was just the usual old garbage.

Despite having no qualms about what he stated in the tweet, the ‘Red Notice’ actor confessed that it simply was not his greatest day. Dwayne said that he meant everything he said. When he says something, he simply means it, though expressing it in public is not appropriate.

He added that it generated an uproar, but oddly enough, every crew member made their way towards him and silently thanked him or gave him a message. But sharing that was not his real intention. That was something he should not have said. Because, at the end of the day, it is incompatible with his DNA. That is something he should not talk about. And he keeps that type of nonsense out of the public eye. He thinks the public should not need to be aware of this. That is why he said it was not the greatest day of his life.

As per aninews.com, Dwayne Johnson said that he promised to return for the eighth installment of the ‘Fast and Furious’ movie, which he hinted might be his final in the main series, on the provision that he and Vin do not share any sequences.

He went on to say that he did the exact same thing because it was the greatest thing to do for foregoing drama.  Dwayne had also emphasized that a claimed meeting between the two on-site in the trailer was not a calm encounter. He and Vin have extremely distinct philosophical perspectives, and they approach filmmaking in some very different ways.

Dwayne slammed some of Vin’s characterizations of their feud and friendship. In Men’s Health magazine, he also quoted Vin Diesel, who characterized their feud as a consequence of the ‘Fast lead’ pressuring the former to give his finest work with a wrestling experience.

One part of Dwayne feels like there is no way he would justify any of that nonsense with a response. Dwayne said that he eventually pointed out that he grew up in a different way and came from a different environment and culture.

Vin remarked in an interview with Men’s Health earlier this summer regarding his dispute with Dwayne, and he fought a lot to get this talent where it needed to be. As a director, he persuaded producers that they should take Dwayne Johnson, who is connected with wrestling, and compel this cinematic world, the audience, to perceive his persona as someone they do not know. It required a lot of time and effort to reach there, and he could occasionally deliver a lot of tough love to Dwayne at that stage.

They first met in 2011 for Fast Five, in which Vin reprises his role as Dom, which he had performed since the first Fast & Furious film in 2001. Dwayne Johnson reprises his role as DSS agent Luke Hobbs, which he played in the Fast & Furious 6 and 7 films in 2013. In the film Fate of the Furious, Dwayne Johnson and Vin Diesel did not appear in any sequences together (released in 2017).

Dwayne also discusses in an interview his connection with his deceased father and their final phone contact about this dispute before he died. On January 15, 2020, Rocky Johnson, Dwayne’s father and a former professional wrestler, died. Over the phone, the two had clashed over a manuscript his father had penned about him, which he claimed was inaccurate. His father had accused his negro and claimed that he had not read it again, regardless of the fact that he had done so. It was the largest disagreement they have ever had, and they have found themselves in doozies in the past, Dwayne stated in their final chat. Because his father was disappointed and wounded, he had leaned over his father in a way he had never accomplished before. While Dwayne stated he did not enjoy letting situations like this fester, the call happened around Christmas time, which was the last time they communicated.

So, where did they stop?

Johnson says he met with Diesel in his trailers on the Fast 8 set after seeing the Instagram post. Of course, he kept them waiting on the details, but their working relationship is said to have terminated there. It became quite evident that they were on opposite ends of the spectrum. And they decided to leave it where it was.

Despite the fact that this is the first time people have heard anything about their conflict, Johnson has previously spoken up. In a July 2021 interview with The Hollywood Reporter where he addressed the matter. Johnson had a big grin when questioned about Diesel’s “tough love” approach to getting greater results.

The Rock may be done with the Fast and Furious series, but we can only hope that he will ultimately reveal the rest of the beans about their conflict.
