"Charlie's Angels"

Crew Member Fired After

Butt-Slapping Minka Kelly

9/21/2011 12:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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.

catch 22 is ... if it were someone she Liked or was Attracted to Or was a fabo Celeb, she would have giggled it off and even flirted back -- like "any other woman" would

She knew this guy had a family and had relocated them for this job, so she blows something completely out of proportion because she's a bietch and gets the guy fired and expects us to believe she didn't intend to get him fired. F YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!

As an EEO manager, I have to say that it's sad that this kind of thing still happens. His family will surely be embarassed. How people can't diferentiate between work, play, best buds, and aquaintances is beyond me.

Here's a suggestion: Maybe ABC executives should STOP promoting this show as "EYE CANDY" and then the crew will realize they can't grope the actresses.

Had that been me, first instinct not to mention reflex would have been to bust the jerk in the head with whatever was available. Cursed his dumb ass out, and kept steppin'. Joke or NOT, do NOT put your hands on me in any way, form, or fashion! She did NOT get him fired, he got his own STUPID self fired. Now the FOOL is on the street lookin' stupid and his family has to suffer. Maybe NOW he'll stop. That's if he is able to get hired anywhere EVER again.

Oh grow up the show will tank, it's already been done, hollywood has no creativity, they have to keep re-making everything....so sick of it all. She's a nobody and should be glad anyone would slap her ass.

So which one is it?? He got fired because ABC has zero tolerance towards this action? Or the second statement? He has done this before to other women? Then ABC fired him? No one should touch another person like that but get your statement correct if your going to make one..

that was setup to be some kind of bet unless the hundred dollar bill was for her. What a dumb ass - white boy can't bust a move like that only pimp daddy gets that hand.

If he has a family he should be smart enough not to slap one of the stars of the show.

LOL I can not stop laughing!!! There is NO way words like "Please don't ever disrespect me or any other woman like that again" would EVER come out of this bitch's mouth. She is the biggest pain in the ass at ABC right now. Everyone knows it and this is why their own PR machine warns press beforehand on how high matenance she is. Please, please, please let this show bomb and let her fall on her ass. She needs to eat some humble pie for a while.

You must be a filthy man-hatting feminist bitch who can't take a ******* joke. No wonder so many other females resent you people.

This was a ******* joke - it wasn't a random slap in the ass. If it was random - yes he should be fired - but it wasn't. It was all part of the atmosphere - and the guy went up to her to apologize - instead this bitch went on a rampage for over an hour complaining.

This bitch is a failure and so is her show. She is just taking out the frustration on this poor schmuck. What a drama queen bitch - hope no one works with this slut.

==============================================

Factorial alert!!!!!!!!!!!!! CSW knows what's up and is keeping it REAL with the above post!

Family? Hope that didn't include a wife. His behavior is disgusting but even more so for someone whose married with kids. Hope his wife slaps him across the face. what a pig!
