It appears as though 'Lethal Weapon' isn't done with its ongoing offscreen drama yet. After actor Clayne Crawford who played Martin Riggs on the show was fired recently, owing to his abusive behavior on set, actor Michael Raymond James has come out in support of him saying that the situation was handled "poorly" and that "no one is perfect."

James took to Twitter to post a series of tweets defending Clayne and claimed that he was friends with the actor from "day one". James was a former guest star on the show. 

Perhaps shading Damon Wayans -- who plays Riggs' partner in the show and was critical of the actor's behavior -- and Fox as well as Warner Bros, he also went on to say that, "Btw, the whole thing has been handled poorly, but no ONE person is to blame. That simply isn’t true. And no one by the same token is completely blameless. It’s just that I’ve only seen exactly ONE party cop to their own accountability. That’s integrity." 

Recently, after the news of firing Clayne was released, the actor apologized publicly on his Instagram for his behavior. Soon, the news of casting Seann William Scott, aka Stifler from 'American Pie' was revealed and that's when things started to get really ugly. 

 Clayne retweeted Michael, showing his appreciation. 

Seann is to replace Riggs in the plot, portraying his brother in the buddy cop show. As soon as the announcement of a renewal for season three and Seann was made, actor Damon Wayans who plays the other cop in the duo posted some really angry tweets about Clayne.

He said, "Now that the fate of the show is solidified.. I’d like to address the TWITTER outrage with this video and image to follow. #directedby @ClayneCrawford," posting an image of his bald head with a bleeding wound. 

In another tweet, he said, that Clayne "hit another actor in the mouth with a bottle of green tea and busted his mouth open."

Soon after, he made his account private.
