Sly Stallone

Hurls N Word at Paparazzi

11/15/2013 9:39 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Sylvester Stallone had some harsh words for a paparazzo in Beverly Hills Thursday ... grousing, "This f**king n***er here, this f**ker."

Sly was leaving Caffe Roma with a friend.  They were followed by a group of photogs.  Sly then hurls the racial epithet.  It comes at 7 seconds into the clip.

The video is a little difficult to hear, but as Sly turns the corner and looks over his right shoulder -- back at the paparazzi -- you clearly hear him use the n word.  A little later in the video, you hear a female photog say to Sly, "Why the racial slurs?"

There were African-American photogs shooting Sly at Caffe Roma, but it's unclear if the epithet was directed at them.

Sly's rep tells TMZ, the actor DENIES using the N word.  The rep says Sly is insistent, he said, "F**king Ass**le."  The rep says the woman in the video who says, "Why the racial slurs?" was NOT talking directly to Sly.  The rep says the photog made the comment so she could pump up the value of the video.

1:35 PM PT:  Sly's reps now tell us the words Stallone used were "f**king idiot."

I think he would've got away with saying that he said "this ****ing idiot" because it kind of sounds like that, but by saying that he said "*******" makes it a little suspicious because he clearly didn't say that.
Either way, this is definitely not the first time that WE ARE NOT ABLE TO UNDERSTAND WHAT SLY STALLONE IS SAYING!!! (insert south park clip here)

I'd like to know how Apollo Creed feels about this...

It's hardly a secret Stallone is a misogynistic, elitist pig...this is no surprise.

If you walk 10 feet behind someone filming them as they walk down the street, being called a name ought to be the least of your worries.

Its hard to hear what he says. I played it over and over and i don't hear the "N" word, but i do hear "F" word. I doubt he would say that on camera. He wouldn't want to ruin his career over one word like paula dean..

Black people get the MOST offended whenever a white person says the N word. But they laugh when they call each other that word. I don't see a thing funny about that word, regardless of who uses it.

Sylvester needs to sit his ass down and stop getting surgeries. Whitte ppl always want to talk about black ppl and we built this country.

As Kanye is reclaiming the stars and bars, Caucasians are reclaiming the n word. After all it was whites that gave it to them.

Considering English is a second language to this ****, even though he was born in the USA, can't say the lack of vocabulary is much of a surprise.

Every day someone is getting called names. No matter what color or race you are. This is what are world has learned from our ancestors. These many words will always be in our vocabulary. But i remember a saying when i was growing up " sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me" there are worse things going on in this world than someone calling someone a name..

He definitely said ******. I am not going to hate on Mr Stallone. This is just how white people are, especially the Italians. It's not news. All those so called action hero types are like that. I will never see a Stallone film again. In saying that though its pretty disgusting how causal he was about saying it. It's really very sad.
