Dwayne Johnson breaks silence on controversy with Vin Diesel

During a chat with Vanity Fair, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and spoke about the post he shared on Instagram during filming of The Fate of the Furious in which he called out Vin Diesel.

While talking about his post, the ex-professional wrestler said, “I meant what I said. For sure. I mean what I say when I say it. But to express it publicly was not the right thing to do.”

However, the actor revealed that the crew on film praised him for calling out Diesel in now deleted post, “Yet interestingly enough [it was] as if every single crew member found their way to me and either quietly thanked me or sent me a note.”

The 49-year-old continued, “But, yeah, it wasn’t my best day, sharing that. I shouldn’t have shared that. Because at the end of the day, that goes against my DNA. I don’t share things like that. And I take care of that kind of [expletive] away from the public. They don’t need to know that. That’s why I say it wasn’t my best day.”

Johnson added, “I wanted to forgo drama. I thought that that was the best thing to do. For everybody.”

However, he also shared that the two met to talk about their differences, “Well, there was a meeting. I wouldn’t call it a peaceful meeting. I would call it a meeting of clarity. He and I had a good chat in my trailer, and it was out of that chat that it really became just crystal clear that we are two separate ends of the spectrum. And agreed to leave it there.”
