Tyrese Gibson Drags Dwayne Johnson for ‘Fast and Furious 9’ Delay


Just yesterday, Universal pushed the release date for Fast and Furious 9 (or whatever they end up calling this one) back a whole year from 2019 to 2020. The move led many to suspect it might have something to do with the upcoming spinoff, which focuses on Dwayne Johnson’s Hobbs and was announced in the wake of some highly-publicized drama between Johnson and co-star Vin Diesel on the set of Fate of the Furious. Fellow #Family member Tyrese Gibson has been pretty vocal about the whole thing on social media, going as far as to beg Johnson to reconsider his spinoff plans. But following the Fast 9 release date change, Gibson has shifted from begging to downright dragging.

Gibson took to Instagram with a passive-aggressive (more aggressive than passive, TBH) post about the release date change. Although Universal has not yet set a release date for Hobbs-centric spinoff, Gibson confirms our suspicions that Johnson’s solo film is to blame for the Fast 9 delay:

It was previously reported that the Hobbs spinoff would co-star Jason Statham, reprising his role as villain-turned-ally Deckard Shaw. But according to Gibson’s post, that’s no longer the case (maybe it never was?). He also manages to drop a Baywatch diss in there before ending with a rather sublime sign-off: “Guys guys just relax I’m just a passionate film critic.”

Aren’t we all?
