The Rock Is Actually Furious, Calls Out 'Chicken S---' Male Co-Stars

Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson posted a message on his Instagram account which called out his "chicken S--T" and "candy asses" male co-stars.

Johnson is filming the latest film in the "Fast And Furious" franchise called "Fast 8."

He said in his Instagram post that his female co-stars are "always amazing" but the men are simply a "different story." Although some do conduct themselves as true professionals, he added that others don't. His post didn't single out any co-stars by name, but TMZ suggested he was referring to his co-star and the franchise's most notable actor, Vin Diesel.

TMZ, citing "production sources" in its report, stated that Diesel's status as a producer and decisions he made on the film "didn't sit well" with Johnson. The two may have even met on Tuesday to discuss the ongoing issue as it was "almost impossible" to shoot scenes.

"Fast 8" is produced by Comcast Corporation's (NASDAQ: CMCSA) Universal and is counted by investors to be a blockbuster hit. The prior film in the franchise, "Furious " ranks as No. 6 on the list of highest worldwide box office proceeds at more than $1.5 billion.

Filming is scheduled to end in less than two weeks.
