TMZ reports that Vin Diesel’s tardiness rubbed The Rock the wrong way.

Actor Vin Diesel has made an effort to bury the hatchet with Dwayne Johnson and has praised the WWE wrestler-turned-actor for his work in Fast & Furious franchise.

In a social media rant, Johnson had slammed anonymous male co-stars, and there are speculations that his post was targeted towards Diesel, 49.

However, in a Facebook live video, the Diesel praised all his co-stars including Johnson,44.

“The reason we brought Dwayne Johnson into Fast 5 was because of you! There was a girl named Jan Kelly who said, ‘I would love to see you work together on screen.’ So the role that was originally written for Tommy Lee Jones, we gave it to Dwayne and he shined in it,” Diesel said in the video.

In an Instagram message after wrapping Fast 8 he thanked Scott Eastwood, Nathalie Emmanuel, and Tyrese Gibson but there was no mention of Diesel.

Finished strong and on to the next. That’s an officially wrap on #FastAndFurious8. Thank you to our director @fgarygray for the vision and execution,” posted the 44-year-old Rock.

Adding, “Thank you to all my fellow co-stars for the daily effort and grind. Scott Eastwood you handsome sumbitch! Natalie Emmanuel I have a cold Budweiser ready for you and Tyrese Gibson you still have the biggest smile and forehead I’ve ever seen.”

“There’s no other franchise that gets my blood boiling more than this one. An incredibly hard working crew. Universal Studios Entertainment has been great partners as well. My female co-stars are always amazing and I love ‘em. My male co-workers however are a different story. Some conduct themselves as stand up men and true professionals, while others don’t. The ones that don’t can’t do anything about it anyway,” Johnson wrote, without taking any names.
