Damon Wayans Claims Clayne Crawford Injured Him on Deadly Weapon Set

Alabama actor Clayne Crawford has been replaced by Seann William Scott on the TV series

Television procedural while replacing its troubled leading star. Wayans spent much of the evening detailing some of the incidents that occurred on set, including an injury he sustained during an episode directed by Crawford. He posted another tweet with a photo of a flyer that said "Clayne Crawford is an emotional terrorist".

"Now that the fate of the show is solidified..."

The accompanying clip showed Wayans getting hit in the back of the head with a piece of shrapnel.

"Wayans ended his tweetstorm by saying Crawford has a "file of infractions" and used the hashtag "#releasethetapes", further insinuating that Warner Bros. may have more evidence it's not sharing with the public.

As Deadline reports, "the fifth and final season will wrap up this unique origin story of the great DC Comics Super-villains and vigilantes, which revealed an entirely new chapter that has never been told". Wayans has since made his Twitter account private, but ConsquenceOfSound managed to grab screenshots before that.

Damon Wayans took to Twitter Monday to fire off a series of tweets to address the firing of his Lethal Weapon co-star Clayne Crawford and was even blamed for the actor's ouster. He alleged Crawford "hit another actor in the mouth with a bottle of green tea and busted his mouth open". "To the Fans - Thank you for the overwhelming support and love", Crawford wrote, including a photo from the set. Since his dismissal, Crawford has offered apologies and explanations for his behavior. He posted a message of congratulations to the cast and crew on Instagram.

Reports of a rift between Damon Wayans, who plays Roger Murtaugh in the TV adaptation of the classic buddy cop film, and Clayne Crawford, cast as Martin Riggs, had circulated for weeks, casting doubt on whether the show would return for a third season. My heart is full.

Crawford, 40, was sacked from the show following reports of bad behavior on set.

Although Crawford said he had been "disciplined", apologized, attended studio-appointed therapy and has since released a statement wishing his former cast well and wishing them luck for the next season, Wayans has not once commented on the month of rumours surrounding the show, which was renewed for a third season ahead of Scott's hiring.

Crawford previously admitted he had been reprimanded twice for his behaviour because he lost his temper over allegedly unsafe working conditions. I feel a responsibility to do good work for my co-workers, for my family, for my home state, and most especially, for the fans.
