Travis Barker has made a name for himself being Blink-182’s drummer, but he is known for many other things as well. He has been part of many shows in the past and is an important part of pop culture. Fans also recently flamed him for seemingly using a homophobic slur in the past.

According to TMZ, Travis Barker is getting blasted by people online for a resurfaced clip. People claimed that Barker used a homophobic slur in an old clip from Ashton Kutcher’s old MTV Show called “Punk’d.”

In the resurfaced clip, Travis is having dinner with Shanna Moakler. After a while, an actor posing as a waiter comes to the table and starts flirting with her, pretending they used to be a thing.

Barker got angry and told the server, “Yeah, she usually dates (bleep)” and this started a huge argument. It ended with the waiter saying he didn’t appreciate the term.

People online believe the MTV show bleeped out a slur. However, according to the actor who played the waiter, that is not the case. Ahmed Ahmed stated that Travis exclaimed, “f***ing a**holes” instead of the f-word. Ahmed stated that Barker was very nice once Ashton Kutcher came out and let him know he was being pranked.

”He did not say anything racial or homophobic. He was super nice after we revealed he was on the show. He signed the release form, which I don’t think he would have signed if he said those words, knowing that he was going out on public television.”

Ahmed also sent a message to all the trolls who tried to cancel Travis Barker. As for Barker, he has better things to do, especially since he is now married to Kourtney Kardashian. It is likely he will pay no heed to what the online trolls have been saying lately.
