Fox News reports that The Rock even went as far as calling out an actor from the franchise he didn't name on social media. Many fans assumed that he was talking about Diesel, according to the publication.

Diesel told Men's Health that he thinks their difference of opinion originated because Diesel was a tough producer. Diesel further said that he would do anything in order to get excellent performances in "anything I'm producing".

"I could give a lot of tough love."

Diesel and The Rock eventually squashed their beef and worked together again on the franchise's sixth, seventh and eighth films. Tweeps took to TMZ's comment section on Twitter and shared their thoughts on the two superstars' feud.
