'Lethal Weapon': How Clayne Crawford had the last laugh after his exit in May
While Fox's Lethal Weapon is still stirring up drama, there's one person who has clearly moved on from it since he was fired from the show - actor Clayne Crawford.
'Lethal Weapon' has had a tiring year. First, their lead Clayne Crawford got fired, then their fans were divided and threatened to boycott the show post which another lead, Damon Wayans decided to take the fight to social media. Things got ugly, following which another lead claimed he was quitting the show. Quite a mouthful, isn't it? To fans of the show, it's been a troublesome year as well, especially since their beloved show is hanging by a thread. If Wayans does really quit like he's claiming to do, it will be an incredibly uphill task for the show to bounce back. While all of this drama is on, there's one person who has clearly moved on - actor Clayne Crawford.
The actor, who made his exit in May soon after the allegations against him surfaced, seems to be absolutely unbothered by the mess his former show is in. He's concentrating on his family and their adorable dogs. He's even found a new passion - to raise awareness about causes like anti-bullying and pediatric cancer awareness. His social media is flooded with posts about awareness and community building and he hasn't made a peep about the recent announcement by Wayans. Accused of making women cry and being extremely toxic, it was implied that Crawford was a bully on set for the two seasons that he was on 'Lethal Weapon'. Look at him now at the forefront of an anti-bullying campaign. Post 'Lethal Weapon' life looks good on him!
Crawford spends his days on his farm in Alabama and likes to pick fresh eggs right from his chicken coups. He's also participating in activities by his community Christian school and helping out with their Bicentennial Project! "What an inspiration these kids are," he had posted a couple of days ago. He still looks as ruggedly handsome as we've always known him to be, but there's no news of him being recast on 'Lethal Weapon' or any other show for that matter. He's only an actor and director for now and is focusing on his charitable trust, Clayne Crawford Foundation. For this month, it's spearheading the conversation in partnership with Bullies Keep Out. Their focus is to support, mentor, and raise awareness to those who have been bullied, harassed, or struggle from any form of hate.
He also went on to congratulate 'Lethal Weapon' when the third season premiered. "To my cast and crew - CONGRATULATIONS on season 3! To the Fans - Thank you for the overwhelming support and love. Riggs was a dream role and the experience will live with me forever. My heart is full. Good Luck nxt season!!," he wrote on a throwback photo from the show's set. Even though fans are still emotional about how things went down with Crawford, one thing is for sure - Riggs is finally happy.
