Actor Clayne Crawford is ready to share his side of the story in regards to his firing on Lethal Weapon. As you should know, reports have gone on to reveal that Crawford had several unfortunate incidents that would take place on set. Yesterday, Crawford would sit down with podcast series ‘Drinkin Bros.’ to provide further insight on filming the first two seasons of the show. According to Crawford, his outbursts that were recorded came from the frustration he had with a number of obstacles while filming the series with Damon Wayans. Crawford would also share that he found out he was fired on Twitter, like everyone else.
Listen to the interview here.
In an interview with a podcast called Drinkin’Bros, Crawford details how the news of his firing first broke to him through social media, and how he’d originally assumed it would all just blow over. “It’s a little different when you replace Becky or the mom off of Fresh Prince. Like it’s a little — like if they’d replaced the Fresh Prince, we’d have been like what the f— are we watching anyway? That’s why I just didn’t think it was possible,” Crawford says of his firing, noting that to this day he’s never received a phone call about not returning. “I just didn’t think they were going to get rid of me, I guess. And if they did, I thought they’d give me a buzz… just a jangle? Just grab two cans and a string and just be like, ‘You’re not coming back. We feel like this is the Damon Wayans Show and people just don’t like you. So go the f— back to Alabama you dumb hick, thanks for playing.'”
