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."

It's one thing when a younger person uses the term as slang since it's become commonplace in the hip-hop culture, but when an older person like Stallone uses it you know it's coming from a place of ignorance and hate. The worst part is that he's probably not going to lose any fans because he's not really offending too many of his core fans anyway. Welcome to 2013!

You all will go crazy in the comments about Alec Baldwin using homophobic slurs, but then be just as racist as Stallone. Bunch of hypocritical, ignorant *******s.

This has to be for publicity for his movie because he never said anything like that before, and he can not be that retarded to not know.

He should be thanking them for even wanting his photo. What a washed up joke of a man.

If Sly's already PSSSSDT.

And a Pap-babe FURTHER confronts him?

Saying, "Why The Racial Slurs?"

...Isn't she SCORING footage?

...MAKING a living?

...At Sly's expense?!

Further BAITING Sly - ?!

And with Sly's HANDS tied behind-his-back?

Now he's insulted TWICE - not just once.

By a couple of cutie-patootie's.

I'm calling for a Summit.

Asking other TMZ Posters to support this.

Harvey et al meeting with A List Reps -

To map out a strategy which includes/involves the input of CELEBS.

THEY'RE practical people - they understand -

But give them some space, some input and leeway.

Won't change the game all that much.

Might even make it better.

You might get MORE cooperation.

Isn't it worth just a DAMNED meeting?!

Or do we all just arm ourselves?

Go to War?

Why do Charley Sheen and Mike Walters work so well?

Because there's give-and-take.

Charlie has SOME control -

While Mike NEEDS to ask certain questions.

Thus there's professional courtesy/respect.

Which comes ACROSS between the two.

Why can't THIS be used as a model?

When/if Harvey chooses to meet with A-List reps?

If it can work in this one case.

Isn't it reasonable to assume it can work in others?

And Jamie Foxx isn't racist? Tmz, why don't you go after that Black Racist?

Sly's one of my heroes but I don't KNOW Sly.

I expect his life isn't UN Stressful.

There's tons of RESPONSIBILITY for these guys.

So Sly goes in to eat - maybe have a pop or two?

Chill for an hour or so...

And AS he's exiting...

He's SCREWED-with?!

He's not even OUT the door -

And a Pap's SCREWING with him!

He's on the front sidewalk -

And ANOTHER Pap joins in!

The paps win - sell footage.

TMZ wins - they present the footage/have ad cred.

But AT the celeb's expense !!!

THAT'S what has to change!!!

It can't be BY burning them!
