What seemed like a certain joke from the moment that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson talked about a “candy ass” on the set of Fast 8 has turned into a full-blown Corona-drinking family scandal. In fact, we still won’t be surprised if this thing is all one wild strategy to get Vin Diesel in the ring at WrestleMania, but for now we have to assume that Tyrese stepping into the picture means that it’s pretty serious.

The man who promotes the Fast and Furious “family” values with his infamous backyard “Gibsihana” dinner parties took to Instagram on Thursday to defend Diesel, his “brother,” from the accusations that his unprofessional behavior and producer’s ego are ruining the bonds on the set of Fast 8. TMZ previously reported that sources from the set of Fast 8 said that Diesel is often late and sometimes refuses to leave his trailer, and he also gives his co-stars acting pointers, which is hilarious considering the film franchise in question.

As Tyrese explains, Diesel doesn’t deserve this criticism because he’s the reason they all have ridiculous cars to drive.

Spreading love always….. without saying I've had too many moments to counts, too many heart too hearts, we've celebrated in too many countries, too many exchanges, too many play dates with our angels…… Our brotherhood and every moment has inspired me to be a better man and father…. So much strength to pull from….. I'm so fucking proud to call you my family and my brother…. even now I'm learning so much about sitting still and being centered in the mist of all of this unexpected energy……. I've always said that if ONLY people knew how hard you work to protect this franchise and characters, minds would be blown…… The fans around the world who continue to show UP for us are just all around amazing…… And if no one else will jump out there and stand up I will – You're my brother for life let's keep it positive and keep rockin this thing…… My proudest post…… #FastFamily #F8 #PaulWeStillMissYouEveryday

As for Diesel, he still hasn’t addressed the beef with Johnson, instead taking time on Thursday to talk about how great xXx: The Rise of Xander Cage will be. He also mentioned what his son wants for his birthday. You’ll never guess who it involves.

All love…
