Lethal Weapon star Damon Wayans blasted his former costar Clayne Crawford, claiming he physically abused one co-star and wrote that he “relished” made female cast and crewmembers cry.

Several outlets published screenshots of his Twitter rant taken before the star set his account to private.

  • In one tweet, Wayans shared a photo of his bleeding head, which he said stemmed from an incident during the April 24thepisode Crawford directed. 
  • “How does the shrapnel from this hit me on the opposite side of the head?” Wayans asked, adding “#[email protected]” 
  • In April, Crawford copped to on-set issues on Instagram, admitting that he’d been reprimanded for his behavior twice. 
  • “An actor on set felt unsafe because a piece of shrapnel from an effect hit him,” he explained. “It was an unfortunate event that happened in spite of all safety precautions and procedures being followed. I take responsibility for the incident because I was in charge of the set.”
  • Crawford continued, writing that he was previously reprimanded for his reaction to “working conditions that did not feel safe or conducive to good work under the leadership of a guest director and assistant director who, in turn, were angry at my response.”
  • “I met with Human Resources, I apologized for my part of the conflict, and I completed studio-appointed therapy,” Crawford continued, according to USA Today. “I even shared a sizable portion of my paycheck with one of the parties involved per the instruction of the studio.”
  • But Wayans was upset about more than the injury. He shared a photo of what he says “other people were posting in and around the lot.” It featured a sticker that read “Clayne Crawford is an emotional terrorist.”
  • Wayans also claimed Crawford was physically abusive, writing: “He hit another actor in the mouth with a bottle of green tea and busted his mouth open” and tagging an account for actor Lance Henriksen.
  • In another tweet per USA Today, Wayans said Crawford “has a file of infractions” and asked Warner Bros. to “#releasethetapes.”

FALL OUT BOY TAKES CREDIT FOR LLAMA MANIA – (05/16/2018)

Llamas are all the rage nowadays, and the guys in Fall Out Boy say it is because of them.

The website Refinery29 recently published an article titled “Apparently, Llamas Are the New Unicorns,” pointing to data from Pinterest showing that interest in llama-themed items and food, such as home decor, cakes and cookies, has dramatically increased.

The campaign surrounding Fall Out Boy’s new album, M A N I A, has been centered around two life-sized, anthropomorphic llama puppets – and the band is more than happy to take credit for the spike in llama interest.

On their Twitter, Fall Out Boy posted a link to the Refinery29 article and wrote, “It’s called trend setting sweetie, look it up.”

Liam Payne kicked off the Good Morning America Summer Concert Series yesterday. Before his performance, Payne was asked about his upcoming debut solo album. “It is out on the 14th of September, I can tell you that much. I’m really happy with it, it’s come out really nice,” he said.

Liam also spoke about his relationship with his “Familiar” collaboration partner, J Balvin, during the interview – and performed his hit song “Strip That Down.”

He didn’t disclose the album title or who will be featured on it, but did share that the stars he’s teamed up with already – Quavo, Zedd and Balvin – are just the beginning. “I’ve got a good mix of beautiful people on my album, which is amazing.”

Balvin also joined Payne on stage to perform “Familiar.”

Liam also spoke to the future of One Direction: “I’m sure there’s time for that to come back around. And the more success we have on our own, the more success we’re going to have together in the future. We’re like The Avengers – if you want Spider-Man to sort something out, he sorts it out. But then The Hulk will go, ‘Well I’ll sort this out.’ It’s one of those things.”
