Kevin Hart and Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson are well known for their banterful interactions, often roasting each over social media like only true mates can.
Earlier this year, the ‘feuding’ friends had us howling with laughter at their baby pic battle, where they both photoshopped each other’s faces onto their respective children.
The Rock has previously referred to his much shorter buddy as a ‘snack-sized Denzel’ while Kevin has described the huge semi-retired wrestler as a ‘diva’.
Now the friends are embroiled in yet another online battle, this time concerning a pair of hilarious action figures.
Although the action figures are meant to depict the pair, the resemblance is questionable to say the least. For starters, both figures are the same height and the one representing The Rock appears to have a bit of hair.
Nonetheless, comedian Kevin delighted in the action figures, which he received as a gift; sharing a picture of them on Instagram with the following caption:
This might be the funniest/best gift ever. Major thank you to my @mountaindew family for surprising me with this…and also thank you for making me look so much better than @therock ….He looks so stupid!!!
Look how dumb his mouth looks. He looks like a d*ckhead….and look at me standing over there looking all cool & stuff. Man…I look incredible…I look so bad ass!!!! Goooooo Meeeeeee #KickStart #MountainDew #TheRockLooksSoStupid.

Unsurprisingly, The Rock wasn’t about to let Kevin get away with his bragging for too long, and his response was brutal.
Responding to his Jumanji co-star’s sly digs, the People’s Champ slammed back with some savage jibes of his own:
This is the dumbest sh*t I’ve ever seen.
You look like your receiving a Mountain Dew enema up your ass – with a confused look on your face because you actually like the feeling.
How bout you go Kick Start this.
The Rock concluded his scathing comeback by flipping the bird in emoji form, before sharing a screenshot of the ruckus on his own Instagram page:
It’s non stop with me and this lil’ enema lovin’ popcorn fart @kevinhart4real @kevinhart4real #BrotherlyLove
Fans loved this latest fracas in the Kevin Hart vs. The Rock battle of banter, taking to social media to show their approval.
One person jokingly warned:
One of these days, one of you is going to take it too far and it will all end in tears. Tears of laughter of course.
Another even had an interesting, and genuinely good, movie-based suggestion:
Hey Kev you and the rock should do a remake of the movie Twins. It would be hilarious!!! @therock seriously this needs to happen!!!!!!

Speaking with The Hollywood Reporter back in 2016, The Rock opened up about their ‘brotherly’ bond:
We met each other for the first time probably two or three years ago at an awards show, but we always knew we wanted to work with each other.
Since working with him I can honestly tell you that I’ve never had this type of brotherly chemistry with anyone that I’ve worked with and it’s a cool thing.
If we never do another movie again, then I know I got a brother for life who I have this crazy chemistry with.
It’s like having a brother. We talk shit to each other. We give each other shit. We compete with each other but we have fun.

Is there any better sort of friendship than one where you can take the mick out of each other all the time, but secretly find each other hilarious?
