This is a lesson Tyrese Gibson should be learning today (but probably isn’t) after The Rock doubled down on social media, dropping yet another not-so-subtle shot at the Fast and Furious lifer for all his whining about Johnson’s movie Hobbs and Shaw.
As you probably recall, The Rock called some of his co-stars “chicken sh*t” and “candy asses” after completing filming on The Fate of the Furious, and then went on to sign his own deal for a Fast and Furious spinoff, sending Tyrese into a spiral for what he perceived as disrespect to his financial lifeblood.
Gibson, at various points, has blamed The Rock for everything from Fast and Furious 9 production delays to him being broke and having problems with his family.
Tyrese was still at it following the release of Hobbs and Shaw, gloating about what a “poor” opening weekend The Rock’s spin-off had, writing, “I have to show my respects for one thing…. He tried…….. Folks called me a hater…. Attacked me for speaking out…..Breaking up the family clearly doesn’t have the value that one would assume it does. 180 million dollar global opening on Hobbs and Shaw is NOT a win … Again my respects cause he tried his best.”
The Rock bided his time then dropped a tweet about Hobbs and Shaw actually being a success, and how “the best way to shut the mouth of a 🤡 is to flex with success and a smile.”
Fast forward another month and The Rock went for the kill, posting on Instagram a photo of a story about how much money Hobbs and Shaw has made.
He captioned the photo, “Assassins quietly play chess♟loud clowns play checkers. Thank you audiences worldwide for this incredible support and massive win. Very cool and we’re grateful for the love 🙏🏾. #hardestworkersintheroom #hungryhumble #nocandyass🤡s.”
Let’s check in with Tyrese to see how he’s taking this news…
