Vin Diesel has expressed gratitude for his Fast & Furious castmates amid his rumoured feud with co-star Dwayne Johnson.

Vin Diesel has expressed gratitude for his Fast & Furious castmates amid his rumoured feud with co-star Dwayne Johnson. Wrestler-turned-action star Johnson hit headlines last week when he took to Instagram and appeared to take aim at a Fast 8 co-star for their rude behaviour on set. 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".

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

Diesel appeared to be preparing a response in a note to fans on Instagram this past 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."
He returned to Instagram on Monday with a message of gratitude, sharing a photo of his one-year-old daughter Pauline, who is named after his late Fast & Furious co-star Paul Walker.

Reflecting on the experience, Diesel wrote, "Came home from filming with my fair share of stunt related injuries. You know I will always push and put myself on the line to make something immortal and worthy. Waiting for me was an incredible family filled weekend.

"I am proud of the entire team for making Fast 8 a reality. Though intense at times, I am grateful to the entire cast... Every single one of them we brought on has shined because of their talent and commitment. Always count your blessings. #peoplefeeltruth #alllove".
