Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson was furious with his “Fast & Furious 8” co-stars as he posted a shady message thru Facebook.

“This is my final week of shooting  Fast & Furious 8,” Dwayne wrote. “There's no other franchise that gets my blood boiling more than this one.”

Johnson has just wrapped up filming the next installment of “Fast & Furious" franchise titled "Fast 8" with his co-stars. It seemed that something happened behind the scenes that got the 44-year-old wrestler and actor lashing out against his co-stars, particularly the male casts. Johnson’s social media outburst was clearly directed against some male actors whom he described as “candy as---.”

“My female co-stars are always amazing and I love 'em,” Johnson said. “My male co-stars however are a different story.”

Dwayne criticised his fellow male actors on set, saying how some aren’t conducting themselves as true professionals. He seemed really disappointed and angered by the particular person or persons having described him or them as “chicken s---.”

Dwayne plays bounty hunter Luke Hobbs in the “Fast & Furious” franchise. He stars alongside Vin Diesel, who plays as Dominic Toretto, Jason Statham, who plays as Ian Shaw, and Scott Eastwood, who plays a new character in the upcoming installment. Among these names could be the person The Rock referred to as “unprofessional,” “chicken s---” and “candy as---.”

“When you watch this movie next April and it seems like I'm not acting in some of these scenes and my blood is legit boiling -- you're right,” Johnson stated.

On a positive note, whatever that fellow cast did to have enraged Johnson did something great for the movie. The “San Andreas” actor said this blood boiling event ultimately benefitted the movie.

“Bottom line is it'll play great for the movie and fits this Hobbs character that's embedded in my DNA extremely well,” Johnson said. “The producer in me is happy about this part.”

‘The Rock’s’ male co-stars have yet to comment on Johnson’s public rant.

“Fast & Furious 8” or “Fast 8” is slated to premiere on Aug. 14 2017 in US theatres. The official airing date in Australia is yet to be announced.
