The Fast and Furious family are airing their dirty laundry on social media, again.

Tyrese Gibson is now pleading with Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson on social media, desperate for the action star to text him back.

The Rock Instagrammed a photo of himself surveying documents in his trailer on Sunday (local time). Rumours have been circulating that the wrestling legened is working on a Fast and Furious spinoff for his character along with Jason Statham's character.

"Secret weapon. Many productive meetings and big business deals have been sealed with a handshake at my GSD table that's inside my trailer. This table holds a lot of great mana (spirit/power) and energy. And if these wood slabs could talk... well it's best they can't talk for national security purposes."

This was apparently not to the taste of Gibson, who plays Roman Pearce in the multi-billion dolla franchise. He commented on the photo in an attempt to reach out to his co-star.

"If you move forward with that #Hobbs Movie you will have purposely ignored the heart-to-heart moment we had in my sprinter. I don't wanna hear from you until you remember what we talked about. I'm on your timeline cause you're not responding to my text messages. #FastFamily is just that a family - we don't fly solo," he wrote.

After that comment went unanswered, Gibson wrote a lengthier post on his own Instagram page on Tuesday (local time), which has now been deleted. The message accompanied a photo of him and The Rock together.

In the caption, it appeared he changed his mind about the Hobbs film, saying he's supportive of his "brother". 

"I have never and will never have a problem with this major movie star he's my brother... bro just being honest I didn't like Baywatch lol - but I did rent out two full theatres and take a bunch of kids with my daughter from her private school to support Moana!" he wrote.

"I'm simply trying to reach him cause he won't call me back about this solo #HobbsMovie. I want you to shoot it just not right now cause the #Fast9 release date has already been announced and we can't let our loyal fans #FastFamily or our loyal fast and furious FANS down on any level from pushing the date," he continued in the lengthy paragraph.

It is possible Johnson reached out to Gibson, as the pleading post has now been deleted.

The ninth Fast and Furious movie is scheduled for release in April 2019.
