Aug. 8, 2016: The Mysterious "Candy Asses"
It all started when Dwayne Johnson slammed his male Fast 8 costars in a now-deleted Instagram post. While he didn't name anyone directly, he did refer to them as "candy asses." His post read as follows:
"This is my final week of shooting #FastAndFurious8. There's no other franchise that gets my blood boiling more than this one. An incredible hard-working crew. UNIVERSAL has been great partners as well. My female costars are always amazing and I love 'em. My male costars, 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.
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'll finish strong.#IcemanCometh #F8 #ZeroToleranceForCandyAsses."
