Washington D.C. [USA], Nov. 20 (ANI): Dwayne Johnson, who spurred controversy when he called his co-stars 'candy asses', recently revealed that he stands by his words.

"I was very clear with what I said. I've been in the game a long time," the 44-year-old actor told The Los Angeles Times in an interview.

The Herculean star, in August, said that some of his "male co-workers" on the eighth installment in the 'Fast & Furious' franchise do not "conduct themselves as stand up men and true professionals" and "are too chicken s**t to do anything about it anyway" and added "Candy asses."

However, Johnson, who stars in the upcoming 2017 movie with the likes of Vin Diesel, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, Jason Statham, Kurt Russell and Scott Eastwood, did not name names in his rant.

The F. Gary Gray directed flick will initially release in France on April 12, 2017.(ANI)
