This past weekend, Southern Charm star Shep Rose decided to share his opinions on the upcoming Fast & Furious spinoff Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs and Shaw starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. And, Rose got a reaction that he wasn’t expecting.
After a new trailer for the movie – which will be the eighth in the long-running franchise – made its debut during the Super Bowl, Rose tweeted, “They are never going to stop making fast and furious movies. My question is..who keeps paying to see them? I don’t know one person that does. Guy Fieri?”

According to People Magazine, a few hours later, Johnson replied to Rose’s slam and knocked the reality star down a peg.
“Hahaha crazy right when you think the franchise over the years has made over $5billion globally. Oh and I know one guy who watches.. my buddy Mark Zuckerberg. Crazy right!?” Johnson wrote.
At that point – as any clear-thinking human would do – Rose backed off. He quickly apologized for his comments and then promised to watch every Fast & Furious movie – even Tokyo Drift!
Rose seemed shocked that he got a response from The Rock, so he retracted his statement and made a commitment to immediately binge the movie franchise to keep Johnson on his good side. Then, he wished Johnson the best.
Rose also made a surprise appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen last week to give an update about the upcoming season of Southern Charm.
The 39-year-old said that they had recently wrapped filming on Season 6, and it was going to be “tantalizing.” Cohen added that he has seen some “interesting posts” from Southern Charm-ers in recent months, and he was excited to see what goes down in front of Bravo cameras.
Some of those posts Cohen was referring to include a pic of Rose at Dave Grohl’s 50th birthday party and a pic of Craig Conover and Kathryn Dennis wearing futuristic shades with hopes of being Power Rangers.
And, of course, there was also that pic of Dennis with her new boyfriend Hunter Price when they went Instagram official.
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs and Shaw will hit theaters on August 2nd. And, Season 6 of Southern Charm will premiere on Bravo later this year.
