One of the stars of a broadcast drama series issued a public apology to the cast and crew of the show after being reprimanded for incidents on the set. Clayne Crawford, who stars alongside Damon Wayans on the Fox procedural “Lethal Weapon,” took to Instagram Tuesday to provide details about the incidents and apologize for his role in them.
You can see Crawford’s full Instagram statement below. His apology followed reports that his behavior during the past season had put the show’s future in jeopardy.
Crawford explains in the statement that both incidents involved concerns about working conditions. In the first incident he clashed with a guest director and assistant director over conditions Crawford did not feel were safe. Following the conflict, Crawford says he met with Human Resources, completed “studio-appointed therapy” and compensated one of the parties with “a sizable portion of my paycheck.”
The second incident took place when Crawford was directing an episode of the show and a piece of shrapnel from an effect apparently hit one of the actors.
