Damon Wayans says #dontblameme for Clayne Crawford's firing, tweets video of on-set injury
After some fans of the Fox series took to social media to blame Wayans for getting Crawford fired, Wayans turned his Twitter and Instagram accounts private over the weekend. On Monday night he briefly returned, railing against Warner Bros TV for not defending him, saying Crawford "hit another actor in the mouth with a bottle of green tea," and that he "struck fear in cast and crew," leading someone -- "Not me!" said Wayans -- to post stickers reading "Clayne Crawford is an emotional terrorist" around the Warner Bros. lot. Wayans also detailed the incident that reportedly led the two Lethal Weapon co-stars to stop speaking to each other, tweeting production footage of him being struck in the head with shrapnel from an episode that led Crawford, the episode's director, to be reprimanded. ALSO: Lethal Weapon's renewal is for 13 episodes, not a full-season 22.

"Riggs was a dream role and the experience will live with me forever. My heart is full. Good Luck nxt season!!" ALSO: Some Lethal Weapon fans aren't happy with the Seann William Scott casting.
