Dwayne Johnson is a serious professional and has zero tolerance for co-stars who are acting like “candy asses.” In a Facebook post written on Monday, the actor blasted his male “Fast 8” companions for their unprofessional behaviors on set.

“This is my final week of shooting ‘Fast & Furious 8.’ There’s no other franchise that gets my blood boiling more than this one,” The Rock began. “An incredible hard working crew. Universal Studios Entertainment has been great partners as well.”

“My female co-stars are always amazing and I love ‘em,” he continued. “My male co-stars however are a different story. Some conduct themselves as stand up men and true professionals, while others don’t. The ones that don’t are too chicken sh*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.”

He concluded his post by writing, “Bottom line is it’ll play great for the movie and fits this Hobbs character that’s embedded in my DNA extremely well. The producer in me is happy about this part. Final week on ‘Fast 8’ and I will finish strong.”

The eighth installment of the Universal franchise will be directed by F. Gary Gray and boasts an impressive cast which includes the previously mentioned males as well as a talented group of ladies including Michelle Rodriguez, Charlie Theron, Elsa Pataky, Jordan Brewster and Helen Mirren.

“Fast 8” will open nationwide on April 14, 2017.
