Tyrese Gibson has hit out at Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson after it was announced that Fast & Furious 9 will be released later than had initially been anticipated.

The film was originally expected to hit theatres in 2019 but Universal Pictures announced yesterday that the date has now been pushed back to 10 April 2020.

Although no reason for was given for the reschedule, following the news Tyrese took to social media to accuse The Rock of making the franchise 'all about him'.

On his Instagram he wrote: ""#PSA Congratulations to @TheRock and your brother in law aka 7 bucks producing partner @hhgarcia41 for making the fast and the furious franchise about YOU - And like you, DJ even if they call I will not be deleting this post.

"Gn folks see you in 2020 April #FastFamily right? Nah..... it's about #TeamDewayne #3yrs will it be worth the wait? #NoShaw just Hobbs will this be another #BayWatch? Guys guys just relax I'm just a passionate film critic."

Alongside a picture of the original cast, he shared: "Diversity, love, multi ethnic worldwide multi generational, United Nations, One Race, Fast Family...... Until Dwayne showed up I guess this whole time he had a problem cause he wasn't the ONLY ONE on the movie poster.

"I guess dreams do come true congratulations to @hhgarcia41 and @therock you guys are just amazing you really broke up the #FastFamily I tried to warn you guys... You thought I was hating... I was simply fighting to keep the family together what makes us great is when you see us all TOGETHER we don't fly solo.....

"#MyLastPost today... I got 3 years of venting on this clown - They offered but YOU didn't have to agree with a solo #HobbsMovie #OriginalFastFamily we salute you and stand on your shoulders #VinDisel #PaulWalker #RobCohen #RomanTej were offered a spin off we TURNED IT DOWN!!!"

It comes after the People's Champion layed the smackdown on an unnamed male co-star on Instagram last year.

He said: ""This is my final week of shooting Fast & Furious 8. There's no other franchise that gets my blood boiling more than this one.

"An incredible, hard-working crew. Universal Studios Entertainment has been great partners as well. My female co-stars are always amazing and I love 'em.

"My male co-stars, 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 shit to do anything about it anyway. Candy asses."

The Fast & Furious franchise has since made $5 billion (£3.8bn) across eight different films since the first film was released back in 2001.
