Michelle Rodriguez Threatens To Quit 'Fast & Furious' Franchise Over Women's Roles


The Fast and The Furious franchise started out as a silly action movie about cars, but it has exploded into its own world with a seemingly never-ending parade of sequels, each one topping the last when it comes to shooting guns and driving cars into guns, and turning guns into cars, or whatever. 

They're fun, they're fast, and they are definitely male dominated. But the movies have featured some awesome women characters, like Michelle Rodriguez in her role as Letty, which she has been recurring in for years. To celebrate the digital release of F8, Rodriguez posted a message to Instagram that has everyone screaming. It's pictures of her on set, and what some read as a subtle threat that she may be leaving the series.

In the caption, she wrote:

F8 is out digitally today, I hope they decide to show some love to the women of the franchise on the next one. Or I just might have to say goodbye to a loved franchise. It's been a good ride & Im grateful for the opportunity the fans & studio have provided over the years... One Love
