Details behind the recent firing of Lethal Weapon star Clayne Crawford continue to surface, this time from co-star Damon Wayans.
Yesterday, Wayans wrote a series of tweets revealing some of Crawford’s reported “bad boy” behavior on set making it clear there is no love lost between the former co-stars. The tweets included graphic video and pictures of Wayan’s own injury sustained while filming stunts in an episode directed by Crawford. The tweets were punctuated by the hashtag #NoApology.
Fan outcry arose over the weekend when it was reported Crawford was being released from the TV adaptation of the popular buddy-cop franchise for his on-set behavior while producers scrambled for a replacement. After the news of his ousting broke, Crawford released an apology on his Instagram wishing the cast his best wishes.
In response to angry fans flooding his Twitter feed over Crawford’s firing, Wayans set his account private over the weekend. On Monday, hem reverted the account back to public, tweeting, “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 went on to claim that Crawford went around set making women cry and just generally making work miserable for the rest of the cast and crew. Wayans claims he has kept a file of Crawford’s “infractions” from two seasons they worked together, with notes that include hitting actor Lance Henriksen in the mouth with a bottle of green tea.
Wayans subsequently moved his Twitter account back to private before deleting it entirely.
Lethal Weapon has been renewed by Fox for a third season with American Pie actor Sean William Scott replacing Crawford as an entirely new character (believed to be the brother of Crawford’s Martin Riggs) to team up with Wayans’ Roger Murtaugh.
Premiering in 2016, Lethal Weapon is an adaptation of the iconic buddy-cop film series of the same name by Shane Black. The TV series originally starred Damon Wayans and Clayne Crawford as LAPD officers Roger Murtaugh and Martin Riggs. It is developed for television by Matt Miller.
