Vin Diesel posts bizarre F9 poster claiming he's trying to 'mitigate a war' between Universal Studios and the 'prejudiced' Producers Guild
Diesel returned to Instagram after a hiatus to share the photoshopped poster for his upcoming Fast & Furious movie
Hollywood star Vin Diesel has claimed that he is trying to "mitigate a war" between Universal Studios and the "prejudiced" Producers Guild of America.
The actor, who was not active on Instagram for some time, returned on Sunday to explain the reason behind his absence. He shared a bizarre poster for his upcoming Fast & Furious movie, titled F9, along with a mention of a "war" between Universal Studios and the Producers Guild of America.
"Happy creative Sunday everyone... sorry I haven't posted much lately, I have been trying to mitigate a war between Universal studios and the p.g.a. Prejudice guild of America," Diesel posted.
He also shared a photoshopped poster of F9. The edited poster has the look of a Halloween movie with a jack-o-lantern and a dark house in the background.
According to reports, the poster was actually designed by an Instagram user dubbed Mommy Torretto, a photo editor whose Instagram is filled with Fast & Furious poster parodies.
The reason behind Diesel using the poster in his post is unclear. While Diesel did crop out the bottom featuring the old release date and Universal Pictures logo, the Made by Mommy Torretto watermark is still visible on the poster.
With regard to Diesel's cryptic post, there is no indication why he is referring to the Producers Guild of America as the Prejudice Guild of America.
