Weisley Snipes denies attempting to strangle the director of Blade: Trinity in 2004


The actor denied allegations of inappropriate behavior.

A few years ago, actor Patton Oswalt, who worked with Waisley Snipes on the set of Blade 3: Trinity in 2004, spoke about an unpleasant incident on the set. According to the artist, Snipes got so hot that he tried to strangle the director of the tape, David S. Goyer. Oswalt described working on the painting as “a very problematic production.”

In a recent interview with The Guardian, Snipes, 58, denied the allegations. The actor denounced Oswalt’s comments, stating that African Americans are constantly exposed to prejudice. He also recalled that he was one of the executive producers of the project, which means he had the right to dictate conditions.

“If I tried to strangle David Goyer, you probably wouldn’t be talking to me now,” Wesley said, adding that the black, muscular guy would be immediately sent to prison after the attack.

Snipes knows what he’s talking about: in 2008, he received a sentence for tax evasion and spent almost three years behind bars.

Since his release from prison, Snipes has appeared several times in film and television, including in “The Expendables 3” in 2014 and in Spike Lee’s “Chi-Cancer” in 2015. He also co-starred with Eddie Murphy in last year’s My Name Is Dolemite.
