'Lethal Weapon': Damon Wayans Shares Graphic Video Detailing Issues With Ousted Star Clayne Crawford
Crawford was fired from the Fox drama from Warner Bros. Television and replaced with Stifler from "American Pie."
After Lethal Weapon was officially renewed for a third season without Clayne Crawford, star Damon Wayans is addressing issues with his recently fired co-star.
Wayans shared a graphic video from an incident on the set during an episode directed by Crawford. In it, Wayans, who plays Murtaugh on the Fox procedural, can be seen getting struck in the back of his head by shrapnel. The brief clip was shared with a message to Lethal Weapon viewers who have taken issue with Crawford's firing after an alleged string of instances of bad behavior on set. A subsequent tweet shared by Wayans — who turned his Twitter account private after the outcry, and briefly made it public again before deleting it entirely on Tuesday morning — features a bloody cut on the opposite side of his head, seemingly questioning his on-set safety during the episode directed by Crawford.
"Now that the fate of the show is solidified.. I'd like to address the Twitter outrage with this video and image to follow," Wayans tweeted.
Wayans continued to share details of Crawford's alleged reputation on set, posting an image of a sticker affixed to a post featuring an illustration of his former co-star and the caption "Clayne Crawford is an emotional terrorist." Wayans additionally claimed Crawford punched someone in the mouth with a bottle, and that he had put up with the actor's behavior for two seasons and maintained a file of "infractions."
