The louder and louder rumors spread on the media of a beef between The Fast and Furious co-stars. The rumors first started in August, when Johnson posted a graphic letter on Instagram, and certain male on screen colleagues were being named “chicken sh*t” and “candy a**es.”
Dwayne didn’t change his statements in a November interview with The Los Angeles Times. He told the outlet “I was very clear with what I said”. But according to Diesel, they are very close colleagues and friends.
According to Vin Diesel statement in the media: “I don’t think the world really realizes how close we are, in a weird way. I think some things may be blown out of proportion. I don’t think that was his intention. I know he appreciates how much I work this franchise. In my house, he’s Uncle Dwayne,”.
Diesel, as the older alpha on the movie franchise, claims that he has only in mind to protect everybody in the team, stating: “I protect everybody including Dwayne. I protected Dwayne more than he’ll ever know. And it doesn’t matter. He doesn’t have to know. But he appreciates it. He knows it. Dwayne has only got one Vin in his life. Dwayne Johnson only has one big brother in this film world and that’s me.”
