Tyrese calls Dwayne John­son ‘a clown’ for ‘Fast’ spinoff

The Middletown Press (Middletown, CT) - - KICKOFF - Pho­tos and text from wire ser­vices

Tyrese is call­ing out his “Fast & Fu­ri­ous” fran­chise co-star Dwayne “The Rock” John­son for break­ing up the cast amid re­ports of a spinoff film star­ring John­son.

Tyrese posted a pic­ture of the cast Thurs­day on In­sta­gram and wrote in the cap­tion that thinks John­son “had a prob­lem cause he wasn’t the ONLY ONE on the movie poster.”

Call­ing John­son “a clown,” Tyrese says John­son didn’t have to ac­cept the solo role.

He also said John­son and fran­chise pro­ducer Hi­ram Gar­cia “broke up the (hash)FastFam­ily.”

The Hol­ly­wood Re­porter said Thurs­day that a 2019 “Fast” film is in­tended to be a spinoff star­ring John­son and Ja­son Statham.

Tyrese has starred in five “Fast” films, while John­son has starred in four.

John­son’s rep­re­sen­ta­tives didn’t im­me­di­ately re­spond to a re­quest for com­ment.
