Father of the US actor Chandler Riggs said his son was fired from TV series "The Walking Dead," calling the incident "unkind timing."
The actor's father, William Riggs, earlier on claimed on his Facebook page, "Riggs did not want to leave the show, and that then-showrunner Scott M Gimple fired him."
"Watching Gimple fire my son two weeks before his 18th birthday after telling him they wanted him for the next three years was disappointing," William Riggs wrote in the post, which was later deleted.
He also said that he "never trusted" Gimple.
Chandler Riggs, who played Carl Grimes on the hit AMC series, left the show after the Season 8 midseason premiere "Honor" in February 2018. Chandler Riggs was one of the longest-serving cast members of the hit zombie series.
