The Rock Says Tyrese Beef Is ‘Bulls—‘: ‘I Never Respond to Any of That’

A couple of months ago, Tyrese blasted Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson for being selfish for toplining a Fast and the Furious spinoff, which would put Fast 9 on hold, much to his chagrin. There was some back and forth between the two before Tyrese finally called Johnson “a clown” in an Instagram post.

In an Entertainment Weekly cover story, Johnson addressed the feud between him and Tyrese. The Hollywood star called his rift with rapper-singer “bullshit” and he will not participate in it.

“At the end of the day, the only thing I want to do is make a great movie for the fans,” he told the magazine. “I never ever get wrapped up in the sludge of the bullshit that can be connected at times to a franchise. So I never get dragged into it. I never respond to any of that.”

Johnson has agreed to star in the Fast and the Furious spinoff Hobbs & Shaw, which is set to begin production next year for a July 2019 release. Meanwhile, Fast 9 is scheduled to hit theaters in April 2010.

Overall, Johnson said that he’s not trying to cause any turmoil with the cast of the Fast and the Furious franchise.

“It’s been a challenging process because I feel like my intention from day one, when I first joined the cast, was to hopefully come in, have fun, and create a character that people will hopefully like and try to elevate the franchise,” he says. “But in the process of elevating the franchise, I have always thought that in order for this to have real longevity and legs, we should spin out and create characters that can live on their own.”
