A representative for Sylvester Stallone has rushed to the actor's defence after he was accused of hurling a racial slur at a paparazzo on Thursday (14Nov13).
The Rambo star was caught on camera becoming agitated by a pack of photographers who swarmed him and a pal as they left Caffe Roma in Beverly Hills, California, and in video footage obtained by Tmz.com, he can be heard shouting a foul-mouthed insult at the snappers. The full comment appeared muffled, but reports suggested Stallone growled, "This f**king n**ger here, this f**ker."
Moments later in the clip, a female photographer questioned him about allegedly using the derogatory word, asking, "Why the racial slurs?", but Stallone's spokesperson has since cleared up the accusations, insisting the action man never used the racial epithet and actually uttered, "F**king a**hole".
