Danny Glover has refused to back his under-fire Lethal Weapon co-star Mel Gibson after the actor was accused of using the ‘N’ word during a furious rant at his ex-girlfriend.

Gibson has been hit with a series of scandals this month after four separate tape recordings were released in which a man – said to be the actor – can allegedly be heard making various threats during bust-ups with Oksana Grigorieva.

Several Hollywood stars, including Robert De Niro and Whoopi Goldberg, have reached out to Gibson over the scandal – but his partner in the classic ‘buddy cop’ movies is remaining tight-lipped.

A representative for Glover, who starred alongside Gibson in all four Lethal Weapon films, tells the Los Angeles Times, “At this time, Mr. Glover does not have a comment, and there is no statement regarding Mr. Gibson… The decision is that he will not (comment).”
