LOS ANGELES, Aug. 9 (UPI) -- Dwayne Johnson has taken to social media to slam his male Fast 8 co-stars whom he deems as unprofessional when compared to his female castmates.

"This is my final week of shooting #FastAndFurious8. There's no other franchise that gets my blood boiling more than this one," the actor began on Instagram Monday alongside a short clip of his Fast and Furious character Luke Hobbs tossing aside a prison security guard.

"My female co-stars are always amazing and I love 'em. My male co-stars however are a different story. Some conduct themselves as stand up men and true professionals, while others don't," he contiinued blasting a group of unnamed co-stars.

Still, the former WWE Superstar is still remaining positive about the upcoming eighth installment in the Fast and Furious franchise stating how his annoyance will translate well onscreen.

"The ones that don't are too chicken [expletive] to do anything about it anyway. Candy [expletive]. When you watch this movie next April and it seems like I'm not acting in some of these scenes and my blood is legit boiling - you're right," Johnson wrote.

"Bottom line is it'll play great for the movie and fits this Hobbs character that's embedded in my DNA extremely well. The producer in me is happy about this part. "Final week on Fast 8 and I'll finish strong," he concluded.

Fast 8 also starring Vin Diesel, Helen Mirren, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris "Ludacris" Bridges, Kurt Russell, Jason Statham, Charlize Theron, and Scott Eastwood races to theaters April 14, 2017.
