Crawford apologized for both incidents.
He also had a contentious working relationship with co-lead Damon Wayans, which Crawford later linked to his firing.
He told the Drinkin’ Bros podcast, “Our work ethics were quite different, and creatively, we saw the show much differently, but I just didn’t think they were going to get rid of me, I guess, and if they did, I thought they would give me a buzz. Just grab two cans and a string and just be like [jokes], ‘You’re not coming back. We feel like this is the Damon Wayans show, and people just don’t like you. So, go back to Alabama you dumb hick. Thanks for playing.'”
