Travis Barker did NOT throw a homophobic slur when he got tricked Ashton Kutcherfrom the old MTV show… so says the actor from a controversial resurfaced clip.
Here’s the deal… Kourtney KardashianHusband is getting slammed online by people who claim he used the F-word in an old ‘Punk’d’ music video.
In the resurfaced clip, Travis is having dinner with Shanna Moakler when an actor posing as a waiter comes to the table and starts flirting with her, claiming they were dating.
Travis gets upset and tells the waiter, “Yeah, she usually comes out (beep)”… and it sparks a heated confrontation, with the waiter saying he didn’t like the term.
There’s speculation online that the MTV show issued an insult…but the actor playing the waiter in the episode, Ahmad Ahmad, tells us that this is not the case. Instead, he says Travis exclaimed, “f***ing a**holes.”
Ahmed says the Blink-182 drummer was totally cool once Ashton came out and let him know he was getting framed.
For those who might not buy Ahmed’s story…he doubts Travis would have signed the release forms allowing the clip to be shown on TV if he had actually said what people accuse him of saying .
Ahmed says his friends encouraged him to speak out on Travis’ behalf…and he has a message for the internet trolls coming after Kourtney’s man.
