Fast and Furious 8: Vin Diesel Facebook 100 million likes milestone gets congrats from cast
Vin Diesel is now part of the 100 million club on Facebook, after his popular page surpassed that number in likes. The actor is basking in the glow of his viral achievement as his Fast and Furious cohorts pass along their congratulations.
“100 million followers,” Michelle Rodriguez laughed in a video. “Mad love to you, Vin. Nobody deserves it more than you.”
Tyrese Gibson posted photos of him palling around with Diesel, while Jordana Brewster posted a throwback snapshot of the cast’s “first trip together for Fast and Furious.” She wrote on Facebook, “From the very beginning, Vin knew how special this film would be. He was and continues to be our fearless leader.”
Elsewhere, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg passed along his congrats to Diesel for this milestone by posting a photo of their first meeting.
Diesel’s most popular Facebook post based on total interactions was a tribute to Paul Walker, who tragically died in a car accident in 2013. “When I heard, I immediately flew back to California, and went directly from the plane to his mother’s house,” he wrote at the time. “I thought they needed my strength, but realized when I got there and broke down before his family, that it was I who needed theirs.”
