There was once a time when Dwayne Johnson and Vin Diesel were friends. They starred together in four Fast and Furious films and Vin's kids even referred to Dwayne as "Uncle Dwayne." But in August 2016, their friendship took a turn — a bad one.

Dwayne called some of his male Fast and Furious co-stars "candy asses" for their unprofessional behavior in a scathing Instagram post — which has since been deleted — and all the evidence seems to suggest he was talking about Vin. The two haven't been able to repair their friendship since then, and Dwayne isn't sure if he's returning for the ninth Fast and Furious film. Keep reading to see how we got to this point.

It all started when Dwayne Johnson slammed his male Fast 8 costars in a now-deleted Instagram post. While he didn't name anyone directly, he did refer to them as "candy asses." His post read as follows:

"This is my final week of shooting #FastAndFurious8. There's no other franchise that gets my blood boiling more than this one. An incredible hard-working crew. UNIVERSAL has been great partners as well. My female costars are always amazing and I love 'em. My male costars, however, are a different story. Some conduct themselves as stand-up men and true professionals, while others don't. The ones that don't are too chicken sh*t to do anything about it anyway. Candy asses. 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.

Dwayne Johnson on Vin Diesel feud: 'I wish him all the best'

  Dwayne Johnson on Vin Diesel feud: 'I wish him all the best' More than a year after Dwayne Johnson sparred with Vin Diesel behind the scenes of The Fate of the Furious, the Rampage star is sending his best wishes to his former costar — though he doesn’t exactly hold no ill will. Commenting on their feud in a new interview with Rolling Stone, Johnson said, “Right now I’m concentrating on making the [Fast & Furious] spin-off as good as it can be,” referring to his scheduled film with Jason Statham. “But I wish him all the best, and I harbor no ill will there, just because of the clarity we have.” He then added, “Actually, you can erase that last part about ‘no ill will.’ We’ll just keep it with the clarity.” Reports then surfaced that Johnson had been directing those comments to Diesel, who’s been the face of the Fast franchise since the beginning.

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.#IcemanCometh #F8 #ZeroToleranceForCandyAsses."

According to People, the "candy ass" that Dwayne was referring to was none other than his Fast and Furious costar Vin Diesel. "Tension has been building up for months," a source told the publication. "Vin has been having problems with The Rock because The Rock keeps showing up late for production. Sometimes he doesn't show up at all and he's delaying the production."

However, Page Six claimed that Vin's "diva behavior was to blame." "Vin and Dwayne have been butting heads through the production of Fast 8," an insider revealed. "Vin has a reputation for being difficult — he shows up late, keeps people waiting, holds up production, and is disrespectful to people on the set. Dwayne lost his patience with him."

Aug. 10, 2016: Truce?

My FINAL WEEK of shooting #FastAndFurious. There's no greatness ever achieved alone.. it's always a team effort. We promised an epic prison break out for you guys and we delivered. HUGE THANK YOU to my ohana (family) stunt coordinator JJ Perry and his bad ass fearless stunt team - as well as my cousin and incredible stunt double @samoanstuntman. Thank you team for the willingness to "die hard" and drop your blood & sweat daily for our movie. #MyStuntBrothers #Loco4Life You guys reading this know how much I believe in the idea of TEAM EFFORT. That means respecting every person, their time and their value when they step on to my set or partner with our production company. And like with any team - that's a family - there's gonna be conflict. Family is gonna have differences of opinion and fundamental core beliefs. To me, conflict can be a good thing, when its followed by great resolution. I was raised on healthy conflict and welcome it. And like any family, we get better from it. At the end of the day me and #F8 co-stars all agree on the most important thing: Delivering an incredible movie to the world. #Fast8 #IcemanCometh #FamilyGrowth

Finished strong and on to the next. That's an officially wrap on #FastAndFurious8. Thank you to our director @fgarygray for the vision and execution. Thank you UNIVERSAL for being tremendous partners as always, thank you to all my fellow co-stars for the daily effort and grind. Scott Eastwood you handsome sumbitch! Natalie Emmanuel I have a cold Budweiser ready for you and Tyrese Gibson you still have the biggest smile and forehead I've ever seen.

Ilya Bryzgalov isn’t above throwing a little shade at the Philadelphia Flyers .
Not a good night for Brian Elliott.Flyers goaltender Brian Elliott has only played two regular-season games since returning from core-muscle surgery and missing almost two months of the regular season. It's clear he's not back up to form as the Penguins were up 3-0 by the end of the first period.
