In a new interview with CNN, Johnson responded to the invitation and criticized Diesel for making the invitation on social media after the two had reached a separate agreement.
“I said straight to Diesel that I wouldn’t be returning to the franchise. I was sure of my word and said that I would always support the cast and be at the root of the movie’s success, but I didn’t. There’s a chance for me to come back” – Johnson said – “Vin’s recent public post is an example of his manipulation. I don’t like the way he talks about his kids and what he’s doing. Paul Walker’s death. Get them out of it. We talked months ago about this and it’s clear.”
After Vin’s tragic share, Johnson did not immediately comment.
However, Johnson continued to express his best wishes to the “Fast & Furious” family ahead of their next trip, and what appeared to be the penultimate trip.
“My goal is to end my wonderful journey with this incredible film with gratitude and grace. It’s unfortunate that this public dialogue has tainted the waters.

Unavoidable. Sometimes, I have to ‘love for the whip’. Even though I’m not Felliniesque (only the style of filmmaking by director Federico Fellini), I can do whatever it takes to get people to perform at their best in the projects I produce.”
Not long after, The Rock quickly responded to the Hollywood Reporter: “I laughed, laughed a lot. I think everyone laughed when they heard what he said. I will say nothing more about that statement.” The actor also wished the crew success in the sequels even without him.
