Dwayne Johnson Fires Back at Southern Charm’s Shep Rose Over Fast & Furious Slam
The Rock isn't here for anyone trying to slam his upcoming Fast & Furious spinoff
Don’t even think about messing with The Rock.
Dwayne Johnson is not here for Southern Charm‘s Shep Rose trying to slam his upcoming movie Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs and Shaw.
The reality star, 39, tweeted about the upcoming spinoff, which would be the eighth movie of the hugely popular franchise than debuted in 2001.
“They are never going to stop making fast and furious movies. My question is..who keeps paying to see them? I don’t know one person that does. Guy Fieri?” Rose tweeted on Sunday, the same day a new TV spot for the movie made its debut during the Super Bowl.
But Johnson wasn’t going to let Rose have the last say. The former wrestler, 46, replied to Rose’s tweet a few hours later and put him in his place.
“Hahah crazy right when you think the franchise over the years has made over $5billion globally. Oh and I know one guy who watches.. my buddy Mark Zuckerberg. Crazy right!?” Johnson replied.
This wasn’t a fight Rose was willing to take on. After Johnson replied to his tweet, the Southern Charm star apologized and promised to watch all the movies.
Whoa! The @TheRock answered my somewhat snarky tweet about the fast and furious franchise. I now officially retract my statement and will immediately binge every movie consecutively. Anything to keep The Rock on my good side. All the best to you sir!”
Hobbs and Shaw hits theaters Aug. 2.
