Damon Wayans Takes To Twitter To Discuss Alleged Violence By Clayne Crawford On ‘Lethal Weapon’ Set
Fox’s Lethal Weapon was picked up for a third season, much to the delight of the series’ fans. However, the show’s star, Clayne Crawford, will not return, reportedly because of his violent tendencies on the set. His costar Damon Wayans took to Twitter to explain Crawford’s behavior more thoroughly.
DAMON WAYANS TWEETS ABOUT COSTAR CLAYNE CRAWFORD
Evidently, Wayans intentionally withheld these statements until Lethal Weapon‘s future was secured. As his show is promised to return for at least one more season, Wayans now feels safe posting about a small explosion that propelled a piece of shrapnel into his head. Moreover, Wayans mentioned how his former colleague “hit another actor in the mouth with a bottle of green tea and busted his mouth open.” Wayans continued, posting an image of a flyer that boasts the claim, “Clayne Crawford is an emotional terrorist,” with the corresponding tweet saying Crawford took pleasure in making women cry and was overall an intolerable, frightening person to be around.
As of this writing, Wayans’ tweet has been deleted, although records of the pertinent tweets exist thanks to The Hollywood Reporter. Seann William Scott will replace Crawford on the show, portraying a new starring character to play opposite Wayans.
Crawford has admitted to two transgressions on Instagram on April 24, admitting his second reprimand involved an actor who “felt unsafe because a piece of shrapnel from an effect hit him,” adding “it was an unfortunate event” that occurred “in spite of all safety precautions and procedures being followed.” Crawford also insisted he has nothing but “love, respect and care for” his team, “and would never intentionally jeopardize so many jobs.”
