Sylvester StalloneYou are throwing some punches. 

The veteran actor—who famously created and portrayed boxer Rocky Balboa in the iconic 1976 film Rocky and its subsequent sequels—slammed the recently-announced Drago spinoff and called out returning producer Irvin Winkler.

“ONCE AGAIN, IRWIN WINKLER, this PATHETIC 94 year old PRODUCER and HIS MORONIC VULTURE CHILDREN, Charles And David, are once again picking clean THE BONES of another wonderful character I created without even telling me,” he wrote on  Instagram as he shared in now deleted screenshots of the project’s announcement, according to People

Calling the spinoff idea “another heartbreaker,” Stallone, 76, also went after his longtime friend. Dolph Lundgren. After an article on The Wrap reported that the actor would be reprising his role as Russian boxer Ivan Drago in the upcoming spinoff, Stallone referred to his former co-star as “parasite.”
“I APOLOGIZE to the FANS, I never wanted ROCKY characters to be exploited by these parasites,” he continued. Dolph is a man I used to admire, and he did not tell me anything about the things that were happening behind my back. “Real friends are worth more than gold.”
