Tyrese Says The Rock Is a Selfish Person: 'That's F-ed Up'

Tyrese Says The Rock Is a Selfish Person: 'That's F-ed Up'

My good friend and the godfather of Universal, Ron Meyer has granted me the time to do just that.

Previously, "Fast and Furious" cast member Tyrese Gibson blamed Johnson for "Fast and Furious 9's" delay on social media and alluded to the spinoff.

Hot on the heels of the announcement that Fast & Furious 9 has been delayed until Easter 2020, Universal has set July 26, 2019, as the release date for the as yet untitled Hobbs and Shaw spin-off.

A lot of people seem to have a lot of opinions about the recently announced spinoff to the Fast and Furious franchise.

There was no immediate response from The Rock, probably because he's a busy guy.

Former Nordstrom and Hudson's Bay executive Andrea Wasserman, for example, tweeted , "This is freakish & a strategy departure". The company announced Wednesday that it was planning to rename itself as Tapestry , effective on Halloween.

When asked about The Rock's upcoming spinoff movie that has pushed back the release of Gibson's next Fast & Furious film, the Transformers star said "Congrats to him" in a sarcastic tone. If you smell what The Rock ... ah, you know the rest. That is time I'll never get back.

It is not yet clear if "Furious 10", which has been scheduled for release on April 2, 2021, will be rescheduled as well.

Daddy's gotta go back to work ~ Hobbs. Tyrese says he doesn't hate the spinoff movie idea, he just hates the fact that the film had to be made at roughly around the same time. Pumped to expand and build out the FAST & FURIOUS universe in a cool, exciting way with our @sevenbucksprod, writer/producer Chris Morgan, producer Hiram Garcia and lead producer and my bigger twin, Neil Moritz. Huge shout to my brother, Jason Statham for the trust and wanting to create and deliver something fresh and bad ass for the fans. I want to use my spinoff platform to create new characters that fans will ultimately love to have fun with in multiple chapters and platforms. Johnson sees the film's universe expanding to other medium like television and virtual reality.

"Haters come in many forms", Gibson captioned the clip, which is actually two years old. He called this smart business. "It appears that he's so focused on furthering his own self-interest, he's making decisions from the seat that he's sitting", Tyrese says, while ironically sitting in a seat. I have a deep respect for this franchise in which I've participated in and I want to create great opportunities not only for my colleagues at FF but also for other great players that would like to be part of something new and cool.
