The 54-year-old actor, who played Dominic Toretto in the movie, reached out on Sunday and shared an open letter on his former co-star on Instagram.
“My little brother Dwayne… time is up,” he wrote next to a photo of the two facing each other. “The whole world is waiting for the end of Fast 10.”
Diesel went on to say that his children still call Johnson “Uncle Dwayne” despite the well-documented rift between them. He added: “No holiday will pass. They and you have not sent good wishes.”
Johnson, 49, made his debut as Federal Agent Luke Hobbs in the 2011 Fast Five His role was replayed in the sixth, seventh and eighth parts.
In 2016, in the final weeks of filming the 2017 “Furious Destiny”, the two people’s feud broke out. At that time, Johnson posted a photo on his verified Instagram account-he has deleted it-in which he lashed out at the unnamed male co-star.
Johnson wrote at the time: “Some (male co-stars) acted like a standing man and a real professional, while others did not.”
“This is a difficult role to embody, the role of Hobbes,” he said. “My approach at the time was to work very hard to help achieve this performance where needed.”
“I swear that we will reach and show the best Fast in the last episode 10,” he continued in his message to Johnson. “I say this out of love… But you have to show up, don’t let the team sit idle, you have a very important role to play. Hobbes cannot be played by others. I hope you can seize the opportunity and finish Your destiny.”
CNN has contacted Johnson’s representative for comments.
