“There’s no greatness ever achieved alone. It’s always a team effort. We promised an epic prison breakout for you guys and we delivered,” the wrestler’s post began. “Huge thank you to my ohana (family) stunt coordinator JJ Perry and his bad ass fearless stunt team, as well as my cousin and incredible stunt double @samoanstuntman. Thank you team for the willingness to ‘die hard’ and drop your blood & sweat daily for our movie.”

“You guys reading this know how much I believe in the idea of team effort,” he continued. “That means respecting every person, their time and their value when they step onto my set or partner with our production company. And like with any team, that’s a family, there’s gonna be conflict. Family is gonna have differences of opinion and fundamental core beliefs. To me, conflict can be a good thing, when it’s followed by great resolution. I was raised on healthy conflict and welcome it. And like any family, we get better from it.”

His post comes after he went on a rant while filming the film’s final scenes. In his original Instagram post — which some speculate is about costar and producer Vin Diesel — Johnson slammed his counterparts for being “chicken s–t.”

My FINAL WEEK of shooting #FastAndFurious. There’s no greatness ever achieved alone.. it’s always a team effort. We promised an epic prison break out for you guys and we delivered. HUGE THANK YOU to my ohana (family) stunt coordinator JJ Perry and his bad ass fearless stunt team – as well as my cousin and incredible stunt double @samoanstuntman. Thank you team for the willingness to “die hard” and drop your blood & sweat daily for our movie. #MyStuntBrothers #Loco4Life You guys reading this know how much I believe in the idea of TEAM EFFORT. That means respecting every person, their time and their value when they step on to my set or partner with our production company. And like with any team – that’s a family – there’s gonna be conflict. Family is gonna have differences of opinion and fundamental core beliefs. To me, conflict can be a good thing, when its followed by great resolution. I was raised on healthy conflict and welcome it. And like any family, we get better from it. At the end of the day me and #F8 co-stars all agree on the most important thing: Delivering an incredible movie to the world. #Fast8 #IcemanCometh #FamilyGrowth

“This is my final week of shooting #FastAndFurious8. There’s no other franchise that gets my blood boiling more than this one,” he wrote. “Some [of my male counterparts] 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 asses. When you watch this movie next April and it seems like I’m not acting in some of these scenes and my blood is legit boiling — you’re right.”

Diesel has yet to address the drama.
