Days after Dwayne Johnson made headlines for slamming his Fast 8 male co-stars, the Rock hath spoken again.

This time, however, it looks like the action star has settled his beef with the unnamed "candy a**es" he called out in his previous post, attributing the outburst to a "difference of opinion."

Just like his previous post, Johnson first praised several members of the Fast 8 crew.

"My FINAL WEEK of shooting #FastAndFurious. There's no greatness ever achieved alone.. it's always a team effort. We promised an epic prison break out for you guys and we delivered," he began. "HUGE THANK YOU to my ohana (family) stunt coordinator JJ Perry and his bad ass fearless stunt team – as well as my cousin and incredible stunt double @TanoaiReed. Thank you team for the willingness to 'die hard' and drop your blood & sweat daily for our movie. #MyStuntBrothers #Loco4Life."

The 44-year-old actor then addressed the recent controversy sparked by his last post.

"You guys reading this know how much I believe in the idea of a TEAM EFFORT," he wrote. "That means respecting every person, their time and their value when they step on to my set or partner with our production company. And like with any team – that's a family – there's gonna be conflict."

"Family is gonna have differences of opinion and fundamental core beliefs. To me, conflict can be a good thing, when its followed by great resolution," he continued, alluding that any feud had been squashed.

"I was raised on healthy conflict and welcome it. And like any family, we get better from it," Johnson concluded the lengthy post, adding the hashtags #Fast8 #IcemanCometh #FamilyGrowth.

Shortly after his initial outburst (and Tyrese Gibson's assertion that he had no beef with the Ballers star), reports surfaced that Johnson's issues were with Vin Diesel, and that the two had been butting heads throughout the production.

Reports claimed that on Tuesday, Diesel confronted his co-star about his disparaging comments, although the two allegedly didn't see eye to eye.

A source close to Diesel tells ET that he wrapped his scenes on the film early Wednesday morning, and is now back home in Los Angeles.
