Dwayne Johnson fires back after Tyrese Gibson mocks Hobbs & Shaw

The WWE superstar is boasting on social media about the financial success of his latest film, Fast and Furious spinoff Hobbs & Shaw - days after Gibson mocked its box office results.

"The best way to shut the mouth of a clown is to flex with success and a smile," Johnson tweeted.

"Thank you everyone for making this an exciting first week of box office for our little spinoff Hobbs & Shaw - number one movie and US$333 million worldwide ain't too shabby."

"US$180 million global opening on Hobbs & Shaw is NOT a win," he said.

"Breaking up the family clearly doesn't have the value that one would assume it does."

Gibson isn't the only Fast and Furious star to have publicly attacked those involved with Hobbs and Shaw.

Michelle Rodriguez took issue with the spinoff's writer Chris Morgan after he suggested a future film will deliver "justice" for Han Lue, a character killed off in Fast & Furious 7.

"I've been around since the beginning, way before Chris Morgan came along. He has absolutely nothing to do with where this [franchise's] narrative is or where it's going," she said on Twitter.

In 2017, Rodriguez threatened to quit the Fast and Furious movies unless its female characters were shown "some love".

Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw is still in, while Fast & Furious 9 is in production and set to release in May, 2020.
