"Charlie's Angels"

Crew Member Fired After

Butt-Slapping Minka Kelly

A crew member on the "Charlie's Angels" set has been fired after slapping Minka Kelly's butt.

There's a report out that the guy was holding a $100 bill when he slapped her, and that she retaliated later by slapping him, but our sources say that's NOT true.

What did happen ... according to sources directly connected to the production ... is that the man did indeed slap Kelly, and sources at ABC tell us, she responded by telling him, "Please don't ever disrespect me or any other woman like that again."

Some of the witnesses told ABC honchos, and given the network's zero-tolerance policy on sexual harassment, the dude was immediately banned from the set and subsequently fired.

We're told Minka did not want to get the guy fired and had nothing to do with the decision -- she was friendly with the man and upset that he lost his job after moving his family to town for the job.

And, ABC sources say, this was not an isolated incident -- the guy had done it before to other women.

If he had done it before, why did he have a job STILL? There are plenty of GREAT American's and hard working people out there who can use and respect the job and the people in it. Odd how I am struggling to find a job with a degree, etc and people like this have employment. Proves the addage true, not what you know, but who you know....

Even in business, that is sexual harrassment....but one question....why television don't have any ideas anymore to produce. "Charlie's Angels" was good back in the 70's, but why now? I don't think it make to complete its 1st season before being cancel.

Getting fired was the least this idiot deserved. His act is considered assault and battery. He's lucky he didn't get beat down. And who cares about his family. That's his problem. Minka has no reason to be friendly with this idiot. That's the problem with our world today and why people think they can get away with this. When they step over the line, the victim tries to be more friendly than she needs to be.

If the guy did it before, maybe their "no tolerance" policy is stronger when it comes to protecting their stars?

Come on, you don't slap a woman's butt. In a bar that would get you slapped. At work that gets you fired. That being said, a review of Charlie's Angel said it was awful and would be cancelled rather quickly. So the guy is out of a job a few weeks early.

He moved his family there for the job and THEN slapped a co-worker on the butt? Hmmm wonder if his family includes a wife and if so what does she think about this behavior? Furthermore does he have daughters in this family of his? Would he appreciate a male co-worker doing that to them? Hate seeing a person lose their job but glad they fired him, now maybe his wife should do the same if he has one? No way would I be okay with my significant other slapping co-workers butts!

I'm glad they fired him. You can't do that ever. I worked in sports broadcasting for years and if i ever did that I would have been blackballed from the industry forever.
