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

The second reprimand came as a result of a fellow actor feeling "unsafe" after a piece of shrapnel hit him during the filming of an episode directed by Crawford - presumably the incident Wayans tweeted about.

On the opposite side of the comic book spectrum, it was another case of being renewed for just one more as Fox put in an order for a fifth and final season of Gotham just as everybody thought it was done for. On Monday, hem reverted the account back to public, tweeting, "Now that the fate of the show is solidified. I'd like to address the TWITTER outrage with this video and image to follow", he wrote besides the video.

The actor shared incriminating evidence with his Twitter followers. Screenshots of his posts, seen at the bottom of this article and courtesy of Deadline, were captured by several fans and media outlets.

A photo posted later shows Wayans with a bloody cut on the opposite side of his head, and he questions his on-set safety.

Damon went on to tweet the explanation he was given for the incident: "It turns out there was a second shooter, to Damon's left, on the other side of the pillar behind which his character was crouched, which accounts for what he heard from his left side".

The posts appear to imply that Crawford's set was not safe.

Wayans then shared a photograph of a sticker he mentioned might be seen across the studio lot the place the present was filmed which learn, "Clayne Crawford Is An Emotional Terrorist".


Damon Wayans has laid into his former Lethal Weapon co-star Clayne Crawford over a "file of infractions" on the show's set.

Wayans noted via hashtag that he hadn't received an apology from Crawford for the incident.

He continued, "I met with Human Resources, I apologized for my part of the conflict, and I completed studio-appointed therapy".

Crawford's co-star, Damon Wayans, reportedly had a particularly hard relationship with the actor during the series' first two seasons, with the two no longer speaking by Season 2's end. He later added that he was "incredibly sorry" if his "passion for doing good work has ever made anyone feel less than comfortable on our set or feel less than celebrated for their efforts".

"It is true that I have been reprimanded twice during this past season of Lethal Weapon", he wrote in an Instagram post.

"I take great pride in treating everyone in life with dignity and kindness", Crawford wrote in April. I am very grateful for my job, and I work extremely hard at it. As THR reports, that was enough for ABC to keep the Marvel show around, however they will only be bringing it back for an abbreviated 13-episode run as opposed to the normal 22-episode seasons it's enjoyed before. To the Fans - Thank you for the overwhelming support and love.
