Sly Stallone

Hurls N Word at Paparazzi

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



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.

You can hear it clear as a bell when you turn the quality up to max. He needs to lay off the 'roids and HGH.

Paula Dean gets crucified for using the N word after having a gun shoved in her face in 1986. It seems Stallone gets a pass for using the N word in 2013. Must be nice living in the thirty mile zone (TMZ). Apparently you can get away with anything. Lohan, Brown, West, and many many more. Disgusting!

No matter how much you want to believe that there is little to no racism in the world, this happens(as usual)!!! Sly is one of the ones i would never think would be dropping the "N" word, but now we know what so many other "non black" people think but just don't say...

I'm upset about over 60 comment Oprah made. I'M 65, born and raised in Texas. I'm not racist, but a know much younger people that are racist. When I try to talk to them I hit brick wall.

You sure he didn't say, "God Bless all the African-Americans that endured so much...."? I"m sure if you ask the right PR person, that is what they will attest.

This isn't crystal clear and when is the world going to wake up and see that the use of it by African Americans in every part of their lives as a common term, songs and everyday speech has caused it to become just as any other curse word and saying it is not necessarily that you are racist, it is used as a slang term. Sometimes an endearment, Richie Incognito's locker room said he could say it because he was white and grew up in the ghetto so he had street cred I guess Sometimes being pissed.. listen to some rap songs. It's no different than an African American person pissed as a White person using a derogatory term to address them.. I have heard guys I know you "White Bitch" in the same fashion as the "N" word. It's the inflection and context that matters. My best friend is black and we have discussions over the use of the N word within our circle of friends. One friend's husband is black and she is white but can use the "N" word in greeting and things and it's fine. It honestly is ridiculous. All of us have people that don't like us no matter our race. Move on.. if they don't like you, it shouldn't matter and let them hate.

Oh he definitely said it. I actually think he said it, and then someone in his entourage actually repeats it. You need quality headphones to hear it.. but I don't feel like idiot or *******..can even be kinda mistake for the n word.... phonetically..
