Ray Mickshaw FOX Clayne Crawford on 'Lethal Weapon'

The Fox procedural remains on the bubble despite being one of the network's better performing hours

Before he was sacked, Clayne also directed some episodes of the FOX drama, and Damon claims he "Relished in making females cry". And stuck fear in cast and crew.

In additional tweets, Wayans alleged Crawford "hit one other actor within the mouth with a bottle of inexperienced tea and busted his mouth open".

He's also really pissed about a stunt during a Crawford-directed episode where shrapnel cut the back of his head. The first was where he reacted in anger over working conditions he felt were unsafe, and the second was an incident during an episode he directed, where one of his co-stars was hit with shrapnel from an effect. Crawford addressed this incident back in April, claiming in an Instagram post that he apologized for the on-set conflict and that he had completed studio-mandated therapy. He also shared a sticker adhered to a pole on their studio lot that read, "Clayne Crawford is an emotional terrorist". Crawford portrayed Martin Riggs, a loose-cannon cop who teams with a more conservative partner, Roger Murtaugh (Wayans). He later added that he was "incredibly sorry" if his "passion for doing good work has ever made anyone feel less than comfortable on our set or feel less than celebrated for their efforts". Rumors of tension between Wayans and Crawford have circulated for weeks, but in a new series of tweets-which have now been made private-the actor gave his followers his version of why, exactly, Crawford was dismissed from the series.

"Moreover, I apologize to all of the crew and forged for any unfavorable consideration Deadly Weapon is receiving due to these incidents", continued Crawford, who mentioned that he takes "nice delight in treating everybody in life with dignity and kindness".

Damon Wayans claims that his former "Lethal Weapon" co-star Clayne Crawford injured him onset during the filming of the FOX series.

Although Wayans has been rumoured to be a hard presence on set, Crawford's abuse reigned supreme - at least according to reports from the crew, via Deadline.

Wayans has since deleted his entire Twitter account. I am very grateful for my job, and I work extremely hard at it. "I take responsibility for the incident because I was in charge of the set". [WBTV] thought long and hard about it - I know that was not their first choice, but ultimately these were the circumstances that they could offer us the show. "To the Fans - Thank you for the overwhelming support and love", Crawford wrote. "To my cast and crew - CONGRATULATIONS on season 3!" Riggs was a dream role and the experience will live with me forever. "Good Luck [next] season!"
