Tyrese Gibson is back at it two years after igniting a feud with Fast & Furious costar Dwayne Johnson for extending the franchise with this summer’s spinoff movie Hobbs & Shaw.
The feud first started when rumors swirled that Johnson had plans to make a spinoff movie based on his character, which eventually pushed back the release of the upcoming Fast 9 movie. It’s now set for release in April 2020. After several Instagram posts and a threat from Gibson that he wouldn’t appear in the next movie if Johnson was still a part of it, the feud seemed to calm down as Johnson went into production on the spinoff.
But now that Hobbs & Shaw hit theaters last weekend, Gibson is once again coming after Johnson. In a now-deleted Instagram captured by popular account The Shade Room, Gibson posted a lengthy message next to a headline touting the movie’s opening, which posted the lowest box office number in the franchise since the third movie back in 2006.
“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,” Gibson wrote, according to the screengrab.
“180 million dollar global opening on Hobbs and Shaw is NOT a win,” Gibson wrote later on. “Again my respects cause he tried his best,” Gibson wrote.
