Sylvester Stallone and his rep are in complete and total denial over his use of a racial epoithet on Thursday. Sly can clearly be heard on camera calling a paparazzo a “f*cking n*gger.”
The actor was leaving Caffe Roma with a friend when he turns over his shoulder and drops the N-bomb. “This f**king n***er here, this f**ker.”
Later in the video, which you can see at TMZ, you can hear a female photographer questioning the star’s choice of words. “Why the racial slurs?”
Sly’s rep claims the actor said, “F**king Ass**le,” but we all have ears and it’s pretty apparent those were not his words. Take a listen below and let us know what you think. And here’s some advice for Sly, if you’re going to be a racist, be man enough to own it afterwards. There’s no need to hide behind your rep.
