Tyrese Gibson has waded into the feud between his Fast & Furious castmates Dwayne Johnson and Vin Diesel by making it clear he's a big fan of the latter. Sparks flew earlier this week when Johnson, aka The Rock, appeared to be taking aim at a Fast 8 co-star in a social media post for his behaviour on set.

This is my final week of shooting #FastAndFurious8. There's no other franchise that gets my blood boiling more than this one. An incredible hard working crew. UNIVERSAL has been great partners as well. My female co-stars are always amazing and I love 'em. My male co-stars however are a different story. Some conduct themselves as stand up men and true professionals, while others don't. The ones that don't are too chicken shit to do anything about it anyway. Candy asses. 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. Bottom line is it'll play great for the movie and fits this Hobbs character that's embedded in my DNA extremely well. The producer in me is happy about this part?. Final week on FAST 8 and I'll finish strong. #IcemanCometh #F8 #ZeroToleranceForCandyAsses

He did not name names, but insiders felt sure he was targeting Diesel in his scathing post, in which the wrestler called one of his male counterparts a "candy a**" and "chicken s**t". Read more: Was The Rock’s furious Facebook rant about ‘unprofessional candy ass’ co-stars aimed at Vin Diesel?

So much has gone on this year. I can't believe I wrapped two back to back pictures I both starred in and produced. Now I get to return to my family, my life... To me.

Vin, who is one of the new film's producers, appeared to be preparing a response in a note to fans on Instagram on Thursday , writing: "So much has gone on this year. I can't believe I wrapped two back to back pictures I both starred in and produced. Now I get to return to my family, my life... To me. "So give me a second and I will tell you everything. Everything." But while fans wait for his take on the feud with The Rock, the pair's castmate Tyrese has offered up his support to Diesel in a heartfelt Instagram post alongside a snap of himself and his Fast 8 co-star.
