Tyrese Gibson Just Blamed The Rock’s Big Ego for the One-Year ‘Fast & Furious 9’ Delay
The movie hasn’t even started filming, and there’s already beef.
Fast & Furious 9 was originally slated for a 2019 release, but Universal Pictures suddenly—without coughing up a reason—delayed it until April 10, 2020.
After posting some studio art of the new (delayed) release date on Instagram, Gibson fired off a sarcastic message to The Rock and his Seven Bucks Productions team, which was behind the failed Baywatch movie.
“Congratulations to @TheRock and your brother in law aka 7 bucks producing partner @hhgarcia41 for making the fast and the furious franchise about YOU,” the message began.
“#FastFamily right? Nah….. it’s about #TeamDewayne,” it continued. “#3yrs will it be worth the wait?”
In the highlight of the caption, Gibson quipped, “Will this be another #BayWatch?” Guys guys just relax I’m just a passionate film critic.”

That’s gotta hurt.
This jab is going to make the set of Fast 9 even more heated than the last. Thankfully, they’ll have another three years to work it out.
