We’d want to petition to have “candy-ass” be protected on the listing of pinnacle pop culture terms of 2017. if you’re not up on its meaning, a short search will tell you it’s a noun defined as “a timid, cowardly, or despicable man or woman” — and it’s being thrown round lots in the fast & furious feud between Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson and Tyrese Gibson.


The Rock were given this entire issue going whilst voicing frustration along with his fast circle of relatives in August 2016. “There’s no other franchise that gets my blood boiling more than this one. an exceptionally tough-running team. widespread Studios amusement has been superb partners as well. My female co-stars are constantly outstanding, and i like ’em,” he started out. “My male co-workers, however, are a distinct tale. a few conduct themselves as standup men and genuine specialists, at the same time as others don’t. the ones that don’t are too fowl s**t to do anything about it anyway. candy asses.”


Speculation right now commenced as to which members of the quick 8 crew the rant was about, and Tyrese desired to make it clean that he wasn’t the challenge. Gibson posted a video of the Rock making a song happy birthday to his daughter, Shayla, calling him his “brother,” adding the two have “by no means had a trouble and will by no means have a problem” with every other. “we are desirable over right here….As a forged we’re ALL married dammit!!” he introduced.


How matters can alternate, but we’ll get to that during a minute. turns out, the rant was approximately Vin Diesel, who dismissed the war of words as a spat among “two alphas” that was blown out of share within the press. Diesel instructed usa these days, “I don’t suppose that turned into [Johnson’s] aim. I recognise he appreciates how a whole lot I paintings this franchise. In my residence, he’s Uncle Dwayne.”


Nevertheless, the Rock had no regrets about throwing out the candy-ass time period. “i used to be very clear with what I stated. I’ve been in the sport a long term,” Johnson informed the los angeles times months later. “would standard [Pictures] have desired that didn’t take place? positive, we mentioned it. The irony is after that, and as they do their monitoring and all their evaluation, the interest [in the film] shot via the roof to a whole different stage.”


If that worked for immediate 8, then there is sure to be quite a few hobby inside the ninth installment. almost a 12 months after the initial fight, Tyrese came in, weapons blazing, for his “brother.”



After news broke that a fast spinoff became within the works for Johnson, who performs Hobbs, Jason Statham, and Charlize Theron, Tyrese left a given that-deleted touch upon the Rock’s Instagram page asking him now not to do the film.


“in case you pass ahead with that #Hobbs movie you’ll have purposely disregarded the coronary heart to heart second we had in my sprinter,” he wrote. “I don’t wanna pay attention from you till you don’t forget what we mentioned. I’m in your timeline reason you’re now not responding to my text messages – #FastFamily is just that a own family… We don’t fly solo.”



Gibson persevered, “I’m truely seeking to reach him purpose he gained’t call me back approximately this solo #HobbsMovie I want you to shoot it just now not proper now cause the #Fast9 launch date has already been announced and we are able to’t permit our unswerving fanatics #FastFamily or our loyal speedy and furious fanatics down on any stage from pushing the date…….. Didn’t you notice how huge #Fast8 become? It’s due to the fact we introduced and saved our launch date bro.”

Gibson seemingly deleted his comment after the Rock known as him, however whatever was said didn’t ease the tension, and the drama was a long way from over. the following installment of speedy and furious become due in April 2019 … till it wasn’t. established introduced it would be driven to April 2020, at the same time as the derivative would hit theaters first, in the summer season of 2019. Neither Johnson nor Statham have been officially signed on at this point.


The rants persisted, with Tyrese alleging that the Rock couldn’t percentage the highlight together with his co-stars. He additionally claimed the past due Paul Walker and Diesel grew to become down gives for spinoffs and known as on Johnson to do the identical.


“huge shout to my brother, Jason Statham for the believe and wanting to create and supply something sparkling and bad ass for the fanatics,” Johnson shared on Instagram. “i’ve a fantastic quantity of admire for this franchise that I’ve enjoyed droppin’ blood and sweat in through the years and my vision is to create more possibilities for now not only my fellow FF forged mates, but for other fantastic actors as nicely who need to be a part of some thing new and funky. I need to apply my spinoff platform to create new characters that fans will ultimately like to have fun with in a couple of chapters and platforms.”


Oh, but the candy-ass hashtags aren’t over but. On Tuesday, Tyrese took to Instagram to announce that if “#CandyAssBitchMade” the Rock became in rapid nine, then he could not reprise his function as Roman Pearce. In a put up along a photo with Diesel and Johnson, Gibson seemed to be blaming Johnson for his family’s economic scenario, presumably due to the fact the postponement of fast 9, let alone forcing Gibson to drop out of it, would be placing a massive dent in Gibson’s earnings. “You mess with circle of relatives and my daughters survival I mess with yours……… near your eyes dude you’re a ‘Clown’…… #CandyAssBitchMade All my real one,” he exclaimed.


Gibson is concerned in a sour custody battle over his 10-year-old daughter. In court files, his ex-spouse, Norma Mitchell Gibson, accused the actor of abusing Shayla on Aug. 19, alleging he “pushed our daughter to the floor, pinned her face down, placed his knees on her back, grabbed her arms with one arm and beat her with the alternative.”


“Don’t take my toddler. that is all I were given. Don’t take my infant, good enough?” Gibson sobbed in an emotional video he also posted this week. “I’ve been faraway from my infant for 2 months. I simply want my toddler and no person’s listening purpose no person’s inside the courtroom.”


He persevered, “I’m at $13,000 a month, what extra do you need from me?” — an obvious reference to the child help he’s been paying. “I don’t hate you Norma. I don’t realize why you hate me, however I don’t hate you. But you simply can’t awaken on September 11th and accuse me of something I didn’t do!”
