“You mess with family, I mess with yours”: Dwayne Johnson Was Threatened by Fast and Furious Star to Prove His Loyalty to Vin Diesel to Ensure His Fat Pay-Checks for Minimal Acting

The Fast & Furious team has always been big on “family.” And just like any ordinary family out there, they too have had their fair share of problems with each other. Dwayne Johnson’s decision to go ahead with the Hobbs and Shaw spinoff did not sit right with his fellow co-stars.

While Dwayne Johnson wasn’t on the best of terms with various co-stars, including Vin Diesel and Michelle Rodriguez, his feud with Tyrese Gibson takes the cake. Thanks to the Hobbs and Shaw spinoff, there was a delay in the release date for Fast & Furious 9 or F9 and Tyrese Gibson was not happy, to say the least. Dwayne Johnson found himself on the receiving end of a lot of harsh words from his ex-co-actor and the latter even threatened the former on social media.

Tyrese Gibson’s Threat to Dwayne Johnson

F9’s release got moved from 2019 to 2020 and this meant that the film was going to stay in production for longer than the team had initially expected. It also meant that everyone on the team, including Tyrese Gibson, who played Roman Pearce in the film, would be getting their paychecks later than expected. Needless to say, Gibson wasn’t happy with the decision and he put most of the blame on Dwayne Johnson. Gibson had a number of meltdowns on social media where he openly called out the Red Notice actor for turning his back on family.

In one of those meltdowns, Gibson wrote, “Congratulations to The Rock and your brother in law aka 7 Buck producing partner for making The Fast and the Furious franchise about YOU.” In another one of his Instagram posts, which still has not been taken down by him, Gibson threatened Johnson stating, “You mess with family and my daughter’s survival, I mess with yours.” Gibson also stated in the same post that if Johnson is a part of F9 then the franchise will have to say goodbye to Roman Pearce.

However, after having a heartfelt talk with one of Johnson’s associates, things seemed to have cooled down between the two. Gibson blamed his “meds” for the outburst. If you thought that was the end of the story, it wasn’t. Upon the release of Hobbs and Shaw, Gibson took a dig at the film’s box office weekend. In a now-deleted post, he wrote, “I have to show my respects for one thing…he tried…folks called me a hater…and attacked me for speaking out…Breaking up the family clearly doesn’t have the value that one would assume it does.”

Even though Hobbs and Shaw did fairly well at the box office on its first weekend, it didn’t do as well as the Fast & Furious franchise, which was the reason behind Gibson’s taunt.

All’s Okay between Dwayne Johnson and Tyrese Gibson

You know what they say, all’s well that ends well. After the countless jabs at his co-actor, Gibson revealed that they had “peaced up.” Appearing on Stir Crazy with Josh Horowitz, Gibson stated that the pair had talked for three to four hours and it was “great.”

“Me and The Rock peaced up. We talked for like four hours about three weeks ago. Yeah we talked…it was great. What’s interesting about the Fast and Furious is, it’s not about any of us individually. See, we are like the U.N. at this point. Everyone gets to go to the theatre and say, he and she looks like me.”

Gibson also revealed that he, too, had opportunities to star in a spin-off for his character. However, he denied the idea because he couldn’t make the franchise about him. It really is all about family, isn’t it?

F9 is available to stream on HBO Max.

The Ultimate List of the Best Action Movie Hero Names

Arnold Schwarzenegger (aka “Arnie”, “The Austrian Oak”, or “The Govenator”) is an ultimate action movie legend of the first class. Both a former Mr. Universe and Mr. Olympia champion bodybuilder and former Governor of California, Arnold has risen to the highest levels of worldly success.

Born in Thal, Styria, Austria, Arnold made his breakthrough into Hollywood action movies originally in sword-and-sorcery with Conan the Barbarian and in sci-fi with The Terminator, early roles which let him hide his thick accent and lack of American acting experience.

However, Arnold quickly found his niche and would go on to helm some of the most critically and commercially successful action movie blockbusters of all time. Including Terminator 2: Judgement Day and the Terminator Series, Commando, Predator, Total Recall and True Lies to name a few. While he has eased up in later years to pursue public office, his legacy remains Arnold strong!
