Tragically, the business of sequels is one of diminishing returns. Following the critically acclaimed Candy Ass feud that helped liven up early Fate of the Furious promo last year, two stars of the tentatively titled Fate of the Furiouser have embarked on what shall henceforth be referred to as the Great Crying Puppy Feud of 2017.

Crying Puppy kicked off back in September when Tyrese publicly expressed his disapproval of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's then-rumored Fast and Furious spinoff. Shortly after Tyrese's verbose Instagram note, he hit fans with another Crying Puppy chapter with the quote heard 'round the world: "Congratulations . . . for making the [Fast and Furious] franchise about YOU." Days later, Johnson's spinoff was given an official release date.


At one point, former Candy Ass feud participator Vin Diesel weighed in on Tyrese's comments. Then, in an Instagram video from the gym, Johnson asserted that "big dogs eat," while "little crying puppies" just stay on the porch. Many fans took the "crying puppies" part of that statement as a subliminal response to Tyrese.

Wednesday, in another lengthy Instagram note addressed to "Father God," Tyrese revealed that Johnson still hasn’t returned his calls.  Tyrese also teased Voltron Studios, and seemingly tossed blame at Johnson’s spinoff deal for his difficultly paying legal fees amid an ongoing custody deal.

"[It] was 60 days before I seen my baby and all I asked you to do 'privately' was NOT accept a role that would deeply [affect] us all," Tyrese wrote. "You are simply NOT the people's champ. You are a selfish champ."

Father God I see you and I finally get it............... Life is confusing at times when you’re moving along and your “role” or “purpose” isn’t revealed to you.......... Proudly I’m a Capricorn born Dec 30th 1978 Dr King was taken away from us April 4th 1968 and when I found out Dr King WALKED the streets of WATTS during the WATTS RIOTS it changed my life forever!!!!!! The King family it’s random but I just wanna thank you for love and thank you for your sacrifice and thank you for what your mother and “FATHER” selflessly did for us all........... #VoltronStudiosHollywood coming soon....... I repeat coming soon.... Ok? Take care guys......God bless you..... ps Lee Daniels dude you’re a fellow Capricorn please listen to me don’t you EVER wear your facial hairs like that ever again Ok? And FYI I was never mad at The Rock - I was just mad that he was “pitched” an idea privately and said yes to it without thinking of what I’m dealing with personally I’m almost broke paying legal fees and is doing what we committed to doing for the #FastFans and #FastFamily cause the fast is tradition it’s not just another Movie Fast was created to COUNTER images of racism to counter that WE ARE NOT ONE RACE...... So the rock how does it feel bro?.... going home to your daughter every night.... it’s was 60 days before I seen my baby..... and all I asked you to do “privately” was NOT accept a role that would deeply effect us all....... You are simply NOT the people’s champ..... you are a selfish champ..... I’m almost broke swimming in legal fees CAA tried but couldn’t book me anything cause my ex wife killed my reputation so no one wants to hire me.. It’s not about I know I know I know right?? Says the man on the Forbes list.. Make sure you kiss your 2 daughters when you get home I wish I could but I can’t afford to fight for my baby anymore so they’re likely going to take her away....... Thanks Dewayne see you guys in 2020 and I will not delete this post cause the TRUTH of selfish people in Hollywood needs to be mentioned.................. to this day Dewayne has NOT called me back as u see me crying every 3 hours over my baby know #ShaylaRocks

This is likely not the last we've heard from Tyrese on matters of fastness and furiousness.
