Michael Costello Releases Another Statement Following Alleged Racial Slur

Published

Michael Costello came under fire this week after allegedly calling up and coming designer, Maxine James the N-word.

“Your probably just a n*gger lover defending her,” he apparently wrote to a fan after being accused of stealing one of Maxine’s dress designs. “I am royalty b*tch! I dressed Beyonce! Who are they gonna to believe!”

Michael first responded, claiming that “the hurtful screenshot circulating is fake and does not represent my views on society, nor do I condone the use of such a terrible term.” The designer’s team has since sent HipHollywood a new statement, proving that the Instagram post was indeed photoshopped.

“The image of concern was distributed by an Instagram account that has continually harassed and slandered Costello in an attempt to defame his character. His family, brand and employees have all fallen victim to attacks from the account,” Michael’s lawyer Neama Rahmani tells HipHollywood. “It is believed that a disgruntled intern, who is no longer employed with the company, created the account.”

“Fortunately, Instagram has been very cooperative in working with Mr. Costello to delete accounts created by the people who created the false picture and who are attempting to disseminate it. Mr. Costello and his attorneys will continue working with Instagram and the legal system to bring these cyber bullies to justice.”

Just last week, comedian DC Young Fly posted a pic on Instagram teasing his fans about the possibility of himself and Jackson, Jr. filling the roles of Smokey (originally played by Chris Tucker) and Craig.

And of course fans went crazy. But when we chatted with O’Shea during the press day for his new action film “Den of Thieves”, he was a bit more reserved about the idea.
