Tyrese Gibson, the star of numerous “Fast and Furious” movies, suggested that he won’t appear in the next installment in the popular franchise if Dwayne Johnson is in it.

In a rambling, ellipsis-heavy Instagram post, Gibson wrote, “Hello world, hello loyal fans and loved ones from OUR fast universe.”

“I’m sorry to announce that if [Dwayne] is in Fast9 there will no more Roman [Pearce]. You mess with family and my daughters [sic] survival I mess with yours,” he added. Gibson, according to People magazine, is in a legal battle with his ex-wife over their daughter. Gibson plays former convict Roman Pearce in the franchise.

Gibson then called Johnson a “clown” and other names such as “selfish champ.”

“All my real one [sic],” he continued. “Men on [sic] integrity… my real ones out here stand UP…… folks that GP to the gym and get big naturally #NoJuice #NoOJ spin off huh? Spin off these [expletive] selfish champ…… pause notice who’s got his arms around my shoulder and who’s standing alone.”

An untitled “Fast and Furious” spinoff is slated for release in July 2019.
