While it all started in 2016 after starring in The Fate of the Furious together, the two actors traded jabs at each other after Dwayne called out Vin on Instagram for his behavior.

Vin then claimed it was all part of “tough love” on his part before reaching out to Dwayne on Instagram begging him to come back for the upcoming 10th, and seemingly final, Fast & Furious movie.

“As you know, my children refer to you as Uncle Dwayne in my house,” Vin wrote in his plea to Dwayne. “There is not a holiday that goes by that they and you don’t send well wishes… but the time has come. Legacy awaits.”

Vin continued, “I told you years ago that I was going to fulfill my promise to Pablo [Paul Walker]. I swore that we would reach and manifest the best Fast in the finale that is 10! I say this out of love… but you must show up, do not leave the franchise idle you have a very important role to play.”

In a new interview with, Dwayne turned down the offer to return to the Fast & Furious franchise, before calling out Vin and his “manipulation.”

“This past June, when Vin and I actually connected not over social media, I told him directly—and privately—that I would not be returning to the franchise,” Dwayne explained to CNN. “I was firm yet cordial with my words and said that I would always be supportive of the cast and always root for the franchise to be successful, but that there was no chance I would return.”

Dwayne went on to address Vin bringing up his kids and the late Paul in his post, calling it an “example of his manipulation.”

“I didn’t like that he brought up his children in the post, as well as Paul Walker’s death. Leave them out of it,” Dwayne said.

Dwayne also said that he thought after his past conversation with Vin, that they had a “clear understanding” and he wanted to depart the Fast franchise “gratitude and grace.” However, Dwayne now feels “this public dialogue has muddied the waters.”

Dwayne concluded, “Regardless, I’m confident in the ‘Fast’ universe and its ability to consistently deliver for the audience, and I truly wish my former co-stars and crew members the best of luck and success in the next chapter.”

Vin Diesel has not yet addressed Dwayne Johnson‘s latest comments.
