Lethal Weapon TV Series Future In Question Due To Co-Star's Behavior

It's unclear what exactly he's being accused of but whatever it is, members of the cast and crew don't even want to be on set with him.

If anybody had expected a volatile or angry response from Clayne Crawford after the allegations made headlines on April 23, they might have been shocked by what Crawford posted on his Instagram account.

'I met with human resources, I apologized for my part of the conflict, and I completed studio appointed therapy in October.

The second incident occurred during a Crawford-directed episode when one of the actors was hit with a section of shrapnel and consequently felt unsafe on the set.

Prior to Lethal Weapon, Crawford appeared in TV shows including 24, Justified and Sundance TV series Rectify. It was an unfortunate event that happened in spite of all precautions and procedures being followed. "Furthermore, I apologize to all the crew and cast for any negative attention Lethal Weapon is receiving because of these incidents", Crawford continued.

Reports of the behind-the-scenes issues referenced instances of Clayne Crawford being disciplined for his behavior.

Brexit: Brussels seeks "more clarity" from the UK
Downing Street has insisted she is still promoting both plans in negotiations with Brussels and does not have a preferred option. Supporters of the customs union say it would help to keep an open border between Ireland and Northern Ireland.

Crawford closes off his statement by expressing his gratitude for his job and saying that he works hard for the show.

Lethal Weapon might need to cut loose its loose cannon.

"I absolutely love, respect, and care for my crew and cast and would never intentionally jeopardize so many jobs".

As a result of Crawford's alleged misbehavior, the workplace environment around the Fox series has become so toxic that the network is reportedly considering recasting the role of Martin Riggs - an extraordinary step that is, if nothing else, a testament to how bad things have gotten, provided the reports are accurate.

While Lethal Weapon is down 29% in adults 18-49 and 25% in total viewers vs. last season as it moved to a new, more competitive time slot (Tuesday 8 PM) - ranking No. 4 among broadcast programs in adults 18-49 in the hour - the show is placing among the season's top 20 broadcast dramas among men 18-49 and top 10 with men 18-34.
