Dwayne Johnson has finally opened up about his now-deleted Instagram post bashing Vin Diesel…

Dwayne Johnson and Vin Diesel don’t have the best relationship. In fact, it seems neither of them can stand to be around one another…

And it all goes back to when Johnson was filming The Fate of the Furious, in which he acted alongside Diesel, as the skilled bounty hunter, Luke Hobbs.

Clearly Diesel’s work ethic was one of the main problems, as he would often show up late to rehersals…

As per The Independent, Johnson wrote on Instagram at the time: “Some conduct themselves as stand-up men and true professionals, while others don’t. The ones that don’t are too chicken s**t to do anything about it anyway. Candy a**es.”

But since their feud has died down, Johnson has spoken out about his actions, and regrets his decision to write the now-deleted post.

Speaking to Vanity Fair, Johnson revealed that although “I meant what I said. For sure. I mean what I say when I say it,” he does regret the way he went about things, adding: “But to express it publicly was not the right thing to do.”
He admitted it “wasn’t [his] best day.”

Despite Johnson’s post creating an outburst of controversy, co-stars working alongside the actors apparently thanked Johnson for speaking out about Diesel…

“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.

“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 bulls**t away from the public. They don’t need to know that. That’s why I say it wasn’t my best day.”

Johnson also revealed that the pair tried to talk through their differences, without much luck…

“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.”

I guess sometimes it’s just best to go your separate ways.
