(NEW YORK) -- Vin Diesel wants you to know he's still "diesel."
After pictures surfaced last week of the 48-year-old actor on his hotel balcony, shirtless and looking less than his usual ripped self, Diesel spoke out on Instagram about the issue of body shaming.
"It is amazing the response from the journalists who I have been talking to for the last two days in New York," Diesel wrote, referring to promoting his latest movie, The Last Witch Hunter, at Comic Con in New York. "Today one wanted to see the dad bod. Haha. I am wondering if I should show the picture...body-shaming is always wrong! What do you think?"
The Fast & Furious star then posted a picture of his definitely ripped abs to really hammer home his point.
"The pic from yesterday... For those who wanted the show... For all the angels that love dad bod regardless..." he wrote.
The Last Witch Hunter opens October 23.
