Dwayne Johnson Clarifies Calling Out His ‘Fast 8’ Co-Stars



When Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson took to Instagram earlier this week to call out some of his male “Fast 8” co-stars, using the term “candy a—” to describe some of the them, the internet caught fire.

Last night, he clarified his comments, adding that the “Fast 8” cast and crew is still his family.

“My FINAL WEEK of shooting #FastAndFurious. There’s no greatness ever achieved alone…it’s always a team effort. We promised an epic prison break out for you guys and we delivered,” he wrote, next to a video of them celebrating the scene.

He continued, “You guys reading this know how much I believe in the idea of TEAM EFFORT. That means respecting every person, their time and their value when they step on to my set or partner with our production company. And like with any team – that’s a family – there’s gonna be conflict.”

He added that since the “Fast” clan is a family, they are going to “have differences of opinion and fundamental core beliefs.”

But The Rock said that’s a good thing.

“When its followed by great resolution. I was raised on healthy conflict and welcome it. And like any family, we get better from it. At the end of the day me and #F8 co-stars all agree on the most important thing: Delivering an incredible movie to the world. #Fast8 #IcemanCometh #FamilyGrowth,” he added.

On Monday Johnson posted on social media that “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 s— to do anything about it anyway. Candy a—-.”
