The Rambo actor faces accusations that he made derogatory comments about the extras on set of his television show, prompting the casting director to quit the project.

AceShowbiz - Casting Supervisor Rose Locke of Rose Locke Casting claims to have walked off the "Tulsa King" set after Sylvester Stallone and the director allegedly insulted the extras. However, Director Craig Zisk vehemently denies these allegations.

Locke claimed on Facebook that Stallone and the director referred to the extras as "ugly," "tub of lard," and "fat guy with cane." The actor with the cane reportedly stated that the comment "hurt his soul." Locke also alleged that Stallone requested "pretty young girls to be around me."

Zisk, the Director and Executive Producer, refutes Locke's accusations. He acknowledges that the extras were older than the desired age range for a scene set in a hip bar, but denies that Stallone or he made any derogatory comments.

Zisk explained that he requested headshots from Locke to ensure compatibility with the scene, but she refused, stating, "I don't work that way." Zisk responded that he and his team work that way, prompting Locke to quit an hour later.

Zisk also denies Stallone's alleged request for "pretty girls," emphasizing that Stallone's wife, Jennifer Flavin, was present during filming.

Locke has since announced the departure of Rose Locke Casting from "Tulsa King." A private Facebook page for background actors in Atlanta has been discussing the alleged incidents, with some expressing support for Locke's decision to leave the "toxic" set.

The allegations have spread to other Facebook groups for background actors. "Tulsa King" follows Dwight "The General" Manfredi, played by Stallone, as he establishes a new criminal empire in Tulsa, Oklahoma, after being exiled from his mob family. Craig Zisk, Terence Winter, and Sylvester Stallone are among the show's executive producers.
