Seems like Michelle Rodriguez is a little furious over how the female characters of a certain big budget franchise have been treated lately — and if they don’t fix it, they may lose her fast.

In an Instagram post, the actress — who has appeared in five of the eight films, including the first — turned a (possibly contractually obligated) promo for the digital release of The Fate Of The Furious into more of an ultimatum.

She wrote:

“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.”

Letty never was one to mince words! See the post (below)!

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 ??❤️???✨???A post shared by Michelle Rodriguez (@mrodofficial) on Jun 27, 2017 at 8:43am PDT

So what is she referencing?

Well, the past few films haven’t been the best to the female characters…

SPOILERS AHEAD

– In Fast & Furious (part 4), she herself was the only hero killed, offscreen as a plot point for Vin Diesel‘s return. (She later reemerged in Part 6 with amnesia.)

– In Fast & Furious 6, ex-military badass Gisele (future Wonder Woman Gal Gadot) was the only hero killed in the big fight.

– In Furious 7, badass hacker Nathalie Emmanuel was introduced — only to be made superfluous since Tej (Ludacris) can apparently handle computers as well as she can.

– In Fate Of The Furious (part 8), badass agent Elena (Elsa Pataky) is the only hero killed — and it was just to mess with Dom. And MRod was basically given nothing to do but stand by her man when it turned out he had a baby with another woman!

We love how formidable new villain Charlize Theron is, but damn. Letty has a point, y’all!

Do YOU think the Fast & Furious franchise needs to treat its women better??
