Is the 'Lethal Weapon' drama ever going to end? Former 'Lethal Weapon' star Clayne Crawford seems to be fuelling the fire and is not really ready to let go of things just yet. He recently retweeted a post from a former co-star of his from the show 'Rectify', JD Evermore, shading his accuser, former co-star Damon Wayans.
The tweet showed a photograph of Clayne, hugging a co-star from the sets of 'Rectify'. He appears to be consoling her. The caption read: "To all of those fans of @ClayneCrawford and #LethalWeapon hearing stories of Clayne bringing actresses to tears, the only time I ever witnessed this was on the final day of @Rectify as he said goodbye to Adelaide Clemens, who played Tawney, his wife. #TeamClayne"

This was in response to the accusations made by Clayne's former co-star Damon Wayans who played his partner on the show. Wayans accused him of being physically hurtful to another co-star and even said that he "relished in making females cry".
Clayne was fired from the show earlier this month on the grounds of being abusive on the sets of the Fox series. After the very emotional season 2 finale, the news of him getting kicked out was announced. Soon after, the series was ordered for a renewal — after all, it is one of the better shows that Fox has had in a while.
'American Pie' actor Seann William Scott was cast as Clayne's replacement, though he is rumored to play his brother and not Martin himself — which would make sense because Martin Riggs bleeds out in a graveyard after getting shot in the season 2 finale.
Clayne portrayed the insane yet lovable character of Martin Riggs, an LAPD detective who is the epitome of a loose cannon. It was his heart of gold and Clayne's brilliant acting that brought Riggs' character to life. Clayne apologized for the fiasco publicly after the accusation and firing, saying he cared deeply about the show's cast and crew. Fans have been furious about the change too, threatening to stop watching the show and asking the showrunners to bring him back.
