Playing Vin Diesel Shares New Instagram Post Amid 'Fast 8' Drama: 'I Am Grateful to the Entire Cast'

Vin Diesel is showing nothing but love for his Fast 8 co-stars amid his rumored feud with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.

"I am proud of the entire team for making Fast 8 a reality," Diesel wrote on Instagram on Monday. "Though intense at times, I am grateful to the entire cast... Every single one of them we brought on has shined because of their talent and commitment. Always count your blessings."

This post comes after a source told ET last week that Johnson's remarks about some of his male co-stars being "chicken s**t" and "candy a**es" were directed at Diesel for supposedly being unprofessional during filming.

"There were several times Vin was late to set and it really started pissing Dwayne and other cast and crew off," the source said. "Dwayne was always on time for shooting. It was Vin who would often show up when he felt like showing up. Dwayne is the complete opposite."

Diesel's pleasant post on Monday was accompanied by a shot of the 49-year-old actor's 1-year-old daughter, Pauline, named after his late co-star, Paul Walker.

"Came home from filming with my fair share of stunt-related injuries," Diesel wrote. "You know I will always push and put myself on the line to make something immortal and worthy. Waiting for me was an incredible family filled weekend."

Diesel wasn't the only Fast 8 cast member to post about the franchise on Monday. Tyrese also reached out to fans, writing, "Our everyday inspiration is our brother. This is what makes this so powerful. This film is not about any of us individually, it's about the tribe, the family."

"We love you and miss you P-Dubber!" Tyrese continued, referring to Walker. "#F8 is coming April 2017 directed by a genius legend @fgarygray. It's hands down the best one!"

The entire cast posted a happy group pic to Facebook on Friday, which showed no evidence of strife in their clique.

"For our final #FastFridays post, all of us in the Fast Family wanted to thank you for coming on the ride with us during this epic production," the post read. "We wanted to take the opportunity to express our gratitude to those who have worked so hard over the past 100 days to bring you a movie that is going to be another incredible installment of our saga. Everything we do comes from our shared passion to bring you the very best."
