Sly Stallone Denies Using N-Word

Sylvester Stallone Responds To Allegedly Using The “N Word

sylvester stallone defends himself after racial slur rumors

We knew he couldn’t have said anything THAT awful!

Sylvester Stallone stirred up some controversy when he allegedly used a racial slur on Thursday in response to a paparazzo.

Well it turns out he didn’t say that at all.

Frank Pesce , the man who was standing next to Sly at the time of the incident, said:

“I was with Sly the whole time, and he never said the N-word. The statement was made to a large muscular man in a white t-shirt with his hat on backwards who had been stalking him for more than an hour. Sly previously asked the paparazzi in a polite manner, ‘Please cut me a break.’ The paparazzi ignored him and continued to harass him. In response, Sly made the statement: ‘I know… Look at this f*cking idiot here.’”

Sounds reasonable, but of course his friend would say something like that!

Wrong! George Usher , a Sound Engineer and Analyst for two decades, studied the sound and cleaned it up to hear things better. He agreed that Sly said what Pesce said he did! Usher also added:

“I listen to sound professionally day in and day out, and I know what I heard. In my professional opinion, the audio confirms that Mr. Stallone did not use a racial epithet.”

Well, can’t argue with a professional!

The actor’s rep also added that Sly didn’t even hear about the rumors over what he did or didn’t say, otherwise he would have immediately addressed the situation.

Thank goodness this is all cleared up! It would be awful if Rocky turned out to be a racist.
