Sylvester Stallone insisted that he did not use racial slur when he addressed several African-American photographers taking pictures of him at Beverly Hills' Caffe Roma. The actor was unintelligibly heard saying "This f**king n***er here, this f**ker", but his representative said he uttered, "f**king idiot."

According to TMZ, Stallone spent time at the cafe with friends on Thursday, November 14. As he left, a group of photographers followed him and apparently pissed off the actor. Stallone looked over his right shoulder and hurled the alleged N word. A female photographer was later heard in the video saying, "Why the racial slurs?"

A rep of Stallone initially told TMZ that the "The Expendables" star said "F**king Ass**le" and that the woman in the video was not talking directly to the actor. She only did it to pump up the value of the video. The rep later made a correction in which the words Stallone used were "f**king idiot".

The rep also released a statement to Mail Online, saying "This is just another example of an embellishment of a story to make innocuous videos and pictures more valuable. Mr. Stallone has had a very productive relationship with African American artists and co-workers his entire career."

Meanwhile, Stallone's companion Frank Pesce, who was also seen in the video, commented, "I was with Sly the whole time, and he never said the N-word," he said. "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**king idiot here'."

The audio of the footage was analyzed by Sound Engineer and Analyst of over two decades, George Usher, who confirmed that Stallone was not using racial slur.
