So, um, maybe you've heard a thing or two about Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson calling at least one of his male Fast 8 co-stars a "candy ass" for some apparently unprofessional on-set behavior. Sadly, he wasn't referring to the oft-maligned 1998 Orgy album of the same name. Instead, The Rock was very clearly taking shots at someone. But who?

TMZreports that The Rock and the rest of the Fast 8 crew are shooting more furiousness Tuesday. And despite the attention given to The Rock's Instagram comments, no one seems to know who qualifies as a candy ass. Their sources claim that his costars think it was "out of line" for The Rock to slyly diss them on the 'gram, adding that they all feel like "suspects" now.

As for the source of the original tension that started all of this, TMZ's production sources claim the Fast 8 set has seen "various conflicts" due solely to the "extreme egos" of the movie's top-billed actors. The good news? These same sources have reportedly eliminated Tyrese and Ludacris as the potential target for The Rock's Instagrammed frustrations, leaving only a few more possibilities: Scott Eastwood, Vin Diesel, Jason Statham, or Kurt Russell.
