Crawford said on the Drinkin' Bros. podcast that he has yet to receive a formal call that he has been fired from the Fox drama. "I just didn't think they were going to get rid of me, I guess," he said, according to TV Guide. "And if they did, I thought they'd give me a buzz... just a jangle? Just grab two cans and a string and just be like, 'You're not coming back. We feel like this is the Damon Wayans Show and people just don't like you. So go the f*ck back to Alabama you dumb hick, thanks for playing.'" Crawford said that when news of his on-set clashes first broke, Warner Bros. TV president Peter Roth urged him to apologize publicly to Wayans after he issued a statement apologizing for his bad behavior. Crawford also said that he was being blackmailed with tapes of him calling Wayans the "biggest crybaby p*ssy" and yelling at kids while filming -- tapes that were later published by Variety. "I knew that they were going to release these tapes because they'd been blackmailing me with them for months and months and months, the entire second season," Crawford said. "And I have all the text messages from these people and voicemails from these people saying, 'Obviously you're not the problem, but you've got to get ahead of this because you know they're going to use those tapes against you.'"
