American actor, Tyrese Gibson, has taken to social media to call out The Rock for trying to dump the Fast and Furious franchise, and this has stirred major reactions.
In case you are not following the action-packed films, The Rock plays former agent Luke Hobbs, a fierce character many fans agree brought new edge to Fast and Furious.
In the 8th film, Fate of the Furious, the part-time wrestler was paired off with iconic actor, Jason Statham, who plays Deckard Shaw.
Earlier rumours suggested that there was the possibility of Universal Pictures starting a spin-off film that will centre solely on the two characters of The Rock and Statham.
But, as some sources claim, Vin Diesel (who plays Dominic Toretto) was not comfortable with it.
As though that was not all, during the making of Fate 8, The Rock took to Instagram to blast his male costars, saying they have no sense of discipline. He labelled them “chicken s**t and candy a**es”, with sources saying the rant was targeted at Vin Diesel.
At the heat of the incident, Tyrese Gibson stood beside Vin, posted photos of himself with him along with a lengthy message in which he called Vin his “brother”.
That issue was eventually resolved and Fate of the Furious did exceedingly well at the theatres(sweeping some 1.163 billion dollars).
Now, Tyrese is revealing that The Rock is leaving the franchise for a solo role created for his fictional character, Luke Hobbs.
