Last August, Universal insisted that The Fate of the Furious stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Vin Diesel had buried the hatchet after feuding on the set of the eighth film in the Fast and Furious franchise. Fast-forward eight months, and the bad blood continues.

The beef dates back to the waning days of the 100-day Atlanta shoot when the frequently tardy Diesel arrived late for his final scene with Johnson, prompting Johnson to vent about his co-star on Facebook, where he wrote cryptically: “My female co-stars are always amazing, and I love ’em. My male co-stars however are a different story,” adding that “some” are “chicken shit” and “candy asses.” That led to a heated exchange between Diesel and Johnson in the latter’s trailer.

But outside of the film’s trailer launch in Times Square in December, the two have kept their distance (both are contractually obligated to appear at the upcoming New York premiere April 8). Still, there’s little chance the bad blood will have any negative effect on the film. If anything, it bolsters the film’s narrative of two adversaries unwilling to back down.

Let’s hope both The Rock and Vin Diesel can quit their beef long enough to promote their new movie “The Fate of the Furious”, in theaters worldwide April 14th.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
