Sylvester Stallone denies hurling racial slurs at paparazzi

New York, Nov. 16 (ANI): Sylvester Stallone has rebuffed claims that he hurled racial slurs towards some African-American paparazzi in Beverly Hills.

In a video obtained by TMZ.com, the veteran actor can be heard saying, "this f*****g n***er here, this f***er".

Then a female photog can be heard asking the 'Rocky' star, "why the racial slurs?"

However, his rep said in a statement that Stallone did not use the N-word towards any photographers, adding that he had said "f*****g As***le".

The rep further added that the woman, who accused Stallone of using racial slurs, was not talking directly to him and only made the comment so she could pump up the value of the video. (ANI)
