Damon Wayans Blames Former 'Lethal Weapon' Co-Star for On-Set Injury

The Warner Bros. Television drama remains firmly on the bubble and should an actor sign on to replace him could potentially return for a third season

He alleged Crawford "hit another actor in the mouth with a bottle of green tea and busted his mouth open".

In the video, which was a clip from an episode of the show directed by Clayne, Damon can be seen ducking from an explosion.

The actor continued by sharing that he has absolute "love, respect and look after my crew and forged, and would by no means deliberately jeopardize so many roles". He also tagged Crawford and wrote #NoApology.

Wayans shared a video taken on set during an episode directed by Crawford. Another involved another actor feeling unsafe after getting hit with a piece of shrapnel while Crawford was directing.

The picture showed Crawford's face on a sticker that read: "Clayne Crawford is an emotional terrorist".

Fox's co-chairman Dana Walden said Monday that Fox had not made a decision to let Crawford go, but that Warner Bros. said "they could not deliver the show as it was", Deadline reported. With the news that Scott signed on for the part, Fox renewed the popular series for a third season. "I'm extremely sorry if my ardour for doing good work has ever made anybody really feel lower than comfy on our set, or really feel lower than celebrated for his or her efforts".

The network announced Sunday the show would be picked up for a third season with its new co-star Scott - opposite Damon Wayans - after Crawford was sacked last week, Variety reports.

Lethal Weapon has been renewed by Fox for a third season with American Pie actor Sean William Scott replacing Crawford as an entirely new character (believed to be the brother of Crawford's Martin Riggs) to team up with Wayans' Roger Murtaugh.

Wayans has since deleted his entire Twitter account. "I apologize to all the crew and cast for any negative attention Lethal Weapon is receiving because of these incidents", he wrote. However, he added that "I take great pride in treating everyone in life with dignity and kindness". [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.

Crawford took to Instagram to congratulate his former cast-mates on the news of the new season, writing: "To my cast and crew - CONGRATULATIONS on season 3!" "He added that he "put up with this for two seasons", telling fans to, "Kiss the dark side of my a- if you don't understand it wasn't just me", adding that Clayne Crawford has a "file of infractions" and asking Warner Bros.to "#releasethetapes". "Good Luck nxt season!"
