The feud between two of Hollywood’s toughest and baldest leading men continues to grow. Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson was allegedly upset with Vin Diesel’s diva-like behavior on the set of Fast 8, and called him out publicly on it via social media. And while Dwayne later referenced the beef by saying “Conflict can be a good thing, when its followed by great resolution,” it doesn’t seem like there’s any resolution in sight yet.
In the latest sign that The Rock and Vin Diesel won’t be exchanging Christmas presents this year, The Rock posted up a shoot wrap message thanking pretty much everyone involved in Fast 8 except Vin Diesel.

Finished strong and on to the next. That's an officially wrap on #FastAndFurious8. Thank you to our director @fgarygray for the vision and execution. Thank you UNIVERSAL for being tremendous partners as always, thank you to all my fellow co-stars for the daily effort and grind. Scott Eastwood you handsome sumbitch! Natalie Emmanuel I have a cold Budweiser ready for you and Tyrese Gibson you still have the biggest smile and forehead I've ever seen.😂 And a huge THANK YOU to our hard working production crew – the backbone of our business. Your kind words meant a lot to me last night – thank you! In the end, we all rallied, as great teams do, kicked ass and will deliver an amazing movie to the world. Proud of our entire FAST FAMILY. And now in two weeks I'll reunite with ol' friends Kevin Hart & Jack Black and we have the honor to introduce a whole new generation to the amazing world of #JUMANJI. *(for the record we are NOT making a reboot, but rather a continuation of the awesome JUMANJI story). It's also crazy to me how much me, Kev and Jack look like triplets when we're together. 👶🏽👶🏻👶🏿. Man this is gonna be FUN. #WheelsUp #ThatsAWrap #FromFastAndFurious #StraightIntoJumanji #BigBrownBaldTattooedMan #DarkChocolateComedicRockStar #BrillaintCrazyCurvyCaucasion #TheseHashtagsAreRidiculous #INeedSleepAndCARBS #ButIWillSettleForTequila
Now that’s an insult on par with taking off your white glove and slapping someone across the face with it. On Vin’s side of things, he’s been largely silent about the whole affair. But in a video posted to Instagram, he sounded like his side of the story is almost ready to be told.
“Now give me a second and I will tell you everything,” he promised. “Every thing!”
Call me a conspiracy theorist, but I still have my doubts about how legit this beef is. Ten bucks says The Rock and Vin Diesel end up facing off in some fashion at the next Wrestlemania in March to ‘settle this score.’ Oh, and look at that: the release date for Fast 8 just happens to be April.
