Damon Wayans Addresses Clayne Crawford Controversy on Twitter

He also claimed Crawford "hit another actor in the mouth with a bottle of green tea and busted his mouth open". Before he was sacked, Clayne also directed some episodes of the FOX drama, and Damon claims he "Relished in making females cry. And struck fear in cast and crew #dontblameme". Wayans shared a photo of an illustration of the "Rectify" alum with the caption, "Clayne Crawford is an emotional terrorist".

In the tweets, which are no longer available due to Wayans deleting his Twitter account, the actor detailed several different incidents that allegedly occurred during the filming of an episode Crawford directed. He said the first came when he "reacted in anger over working conditions that did not feel safe" and had since apologized; the second, he wrote, stemmed from "an unfortunate event that happened in spite of all safety precautions and procedures being followed". After the outburst, the actor said he met with human resources, apologized for his role in the conflict and completed studio-appointed therapy, while also sharing a "sizable portion" of his paycheck with one of the parties involved - at Warners' request.

Lethal Weapon is set to return to Fox in the fall.

"I am incredibly sorry if my passion for doing good work has ever made anyone feel less than comfortable on our set, or feel less than celebrated for their efforts", he added. Wayans said goodbye to Twitter and his account was deleted. The fate of Lethal Weapon was hanging in the balance after it was reported that Crawford, who portrayed Martin Riggs on the first two season of the series, had displayed erratic and risky behavior. The TV show is based on a popular movie franchise of the same name, starring Mel Gibson as Riggs and Danny Glover as Murtaugh.

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. ". I take great pride in treating everyone in life with dignity and kindness". I am very grateful for my job, and I work extremely hard at it.

In response to angry fans flooding his Twitter feed over Crawford's firing, Wayans set his account private over the weekend. "I hope they will stick with me, and stick with the show". He posted a message of congratulations to the cast and crew on Instagram.

He did, however, retweet fans sending him support during the Crawford debacle as many questioned whether Wayans had led the charge against his co-star.
