I breathed a heavy sigh of relief when I learned that the currently untitled ninth entry in the Fast and the Furious franchise had been delayed until 2020. Franchise participator Tyrese Gibson had the exact opposite reaction, quickly hopping into an Instagram caption Wednesday night to accuse Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson of manipulating the production to be all about him.

Gibson sarcastically congratulated Johnson and the Seven Bucks Productions team for "making the Fast and the Furious franchise about YOU," adding that he had no intention of taking down his post even if higher-ups give him a call. In one particularly unsettling line in his extended Instagram caption, Gibson pondered if Fast 9 (or whatever the hell they end up calling this thing) would have to endure the same fate as this year's Baywatch. See Gibson's full remarks below.

Back in September, Gibson shared a much lengthier Instagram caption lamenting Johnson's rumored franchise spinoff project. "Didn't you see how HUGE #Fast8 was?" he wrote at the time. "It's because we announced and KEPT our release date bro."

With any luck, this will all result in a sort-of sequel to the Great Candy Ass Feud of 2016. The candy-assery pitted Johnson and co-star Vin Diesel against each other in the press, though some speculated it was merely an elaborate publicity stunt.
