Chevy Chase

Backed By 'Community' Staffers

'What Dan Did Was F**ked Up'

4/2/2012 4:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0402-chevy-chase-getty-exd
Chevy Chase is getting support from several staff members at "Community" ... who tell TMZ there are a bunch of people at the show who feel the actor was UNFAIRLY attacked by show creator Dan Harmon.

As we previously reported, Chase recently left a scathing voice mail for Harmon after the producer led a "F**k Chevy" chant at the season wrap party.

Now, sources who work on the show tell us ... "What Dan Harmon did was f**ked up ... Chevy is a pleasure to work with."

We're told ... many people on set feel the "dispute" that took place between the two men during the taping of the season finale was blown out of proportion by Harmon ... because Chevy was "very respectful."

Here's how we're being told it all went down -- Chevy had an issue with one of the scenes and asked for a rewrite. We're told Chevy was very calm and polite ... but told producers he would "respectfully decline" to participate in the scene unless a change was made.

Producers shot down Chevy's request ... and he quietly left the set without incident.

Our sources tell us they felt the issue had been handled privately because Chevy showed up at the wrap party ... and everyone was shocked when Harmon grabbed the mic and unloaded on the actor.

One source tells us, "What Dan did was embarassing and left a sour taste in all of our mouths ... so low class."

The source adds, "The staff was not pissed at Chevy ... we're pissed at Dan. We all hope Chevy comes back next season."

Tell the guy wearing the hoodie to take it off. He looks super stupid.
The hoodie memorial is too overblown. The family of the dead guy took down his Facebook and Twitter page to clean his image up. The kid was a gang banger and a drug user. The family used an old photo of him to create that "INNOCENCE" child look. He had gold teeth and tattoos of his gang affiliation all over him when he died. The media is not reporting all of the truth.

I never understood how Chevy Chase got as far as he did. Maybe a darn good agent who shoved Chase down their throats. Chase never has been funny. EVER! Nor interesting.

Chevy Chase has had a reputation of being a total douche bag in the past, so it's remarkable if he wasn't a douche bag in this instance.

Chevy Chase is a big huge liberal turd. I've heard nothing but negative things about him. He's lucky he had those few movies in the 80's because that's all he's ever done that was worth a ****,

this is NOT true. i work on the show. your ENTIRE report is UNTRUE.
Chase indeed acted like a maniac, and stormed off set (wasted, and drugged up - as per usual).
Harmon took it easy on CHASE at the wrap party as far as i'm concerned.

This entire article is UNTRUE and FALSE. I work on the show and was there that day. Chevy was NOT calm and stormed off the set like a maniac (wasted and drugged up as per usual). And at the wrap party when Harmon told him to **** off - - EVERYONE joined in, because Chevy is terrible to work with. In my opinion, Harmon went easy on him.

But anyway, this report is FALSE. I was there. I saw it.
