Tyrese Gibson pleads with Dwayne Johnson to ditch plans for spin-off movie
Tyrese Gibson also admitted he hadn't been a fan of his co-star's movie Baywatch, but was impressed by his singing skills in Moana.
Tyrese Gibson has taken to Instagram to urge Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson not to go forward with a Fast & Furious spin-off movie.
The bizarre situation began after Johnson posted an image of himself inside his trailer on the photo-sharing site, alongside the caption: "Many productive meetings and big business deals have been sealed with a handshake at my GSD (Get S**t Done) table that's inside my trailer. This table holds a lot of great mana (spirit/power) and energy. And if these wood slabs could talk... well it's best they can't talk for national security purposes."
Gibson then responded to the picture in the comments section, by writing: "If you move forward with that #Hobbs Movie you will have purposely ignored the heart to heart moment we had in my sprinter - I don't wanna hear from you until you remember what we talked about - I'm on your timeline cause you're not responding to my text messages - #FastFamily is just that a family... We don't fly solo."
When his comment went unanswered, Gibson expanded on the remarks with a post on his own Instagram page, alongside a picture of him and Johnson.
"I have never and will never have a problem with this major movie star he's my brother.... I repeat ever....... bro just being honest I didn't like Bay Watch lol - but I did rent out 2 full theaters and take a bunch of kids with my daughter from her #PrivateSchool to support Moana!!!! ( I was surprised you could sing so well ).... oh s**t!!" he wrote.
"I'm simply trying to reach him cause he won't call me back about this solo #HobbsMovie I want you to shoot it just not right now cause the #Fast9 release date has already been announced and we can't let our loyal fans #FastFamily or our loyal fast and furious FANS down on any level from pushing the date."
Gibson added he had only made such a public plea "on behalf of our families so we keep them all in private school", telling Johnson: "I never ever go public with private family issues.... Once you hit me back I will delete every post."
"Just got out of the hospital still recovering thank you guys for your prayers and love.... I'm a real champion and champions are never down for long.... This is not a #Rant I'm no Rock #Hater and I don't want his #Life I love my own...... I'm doing this for the #FastFamily I'm loyal and I apologise for being loyal but dammit I am," he concluded.
He later deleted the rant and replaced it with a simple plea to Johnson, writing: "I don't do email bruh. You got my cell same San Diego # hit me."
Johnson has yet to respond to Gibson's pleas publicly.
