Clayne Crawford and Damon Wayans star as buddy cops on the screen of Fox's series drama series "Lethal Weapon", but behind the scenes there's also some drama..
Their conflict began to enter the public eye on their social media accounts, which appeared to be resolved in May, when Crawford was fired and replaced with Seann William Scott for the season three renewal.
However, 31 different people that all worked on the series came forward and spoke anonymously with Variety - revealing the full extent of the hostility on set, causing production to an abrupt stop.
The audio acquired by Variety captured the animosity:
Crawford: “You know, I’ve seen [name deleted] handle hits better than you did yesterday.”
Wayans: “Suck my d–k.”
Crawford: “You know, that was the biggest p–y move I think I’ve ever seen.”
Wayans: “Yeah, I’m a p—y.”
Crawford: “A p–y. You’re the biggest crybaby p—y I’ve ever met in my life.”
Wayans: “Well suck this pussy’s d–k.”
Crawford: “I mean, how does it feel to only be in the game because your f–king brothers are in the game?”
Wayans: “F–k you. F–k you.”
