Jason Statham’s ass is in the media dock.
During filming of the 2013 movie Wild Card, Statham apparently went on a rant denouncing producers as ‘fucking faggots’. According to The Huffington Post:
Last year, Jason was confronted by R.J. Cipriani, a consultant on the gambling film, ‘Wild Card’, who warned him he had an audio recording of him using the term “f***ing f**s” during a furious argument with producing partner Steve Casman behind the scenes of the film in 2013.
Despite having not actually heard said recording, and claiming to have no recollection of using the offensive terms, the British action star has issued a statement to The Blast, saying that if he did use the homophobic language, he is “deeply” sorry.
Later this year, Statham will square off against a 40 ton shark in The Meg. Later, he’ll appear in the Fast & Furious two-hander spin off with The Rock. The Mechanic 3 is also on the cards.
