Chevy Chase

Backed By 'Community' Staffers

'What Dan Did Was F**ked Up'

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

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."

Chevy - you're a bitter old man who has lost the knack for comedy. Find some rock and crawl under it.

Oh please ..Chevy Chase has earned respect in Hollywood. Who the f*** is Dan Harmon & wtf has he done lately?I'd guess from his behavior that he is a lowlife unmannered freak who gets off by being rude to people& then milking it for attention! Loserrrrr

"taping of the season finale" . . has 'taping' become the catch-all term? The show is obviously filmed, not taped.

I honestly don't see what the big deal is. So what if Chevy was bashed in front of his wife and daughter? He's well known for being a jerk, and I doubt this behavior (and the backlash from it) is anything new to them. He most likely can be an arrogant a-hole to them too. Dan Harmon may not be the nicest person either, but he IS Chevy's boss and has given Chevy's stalled career a boost.

Joe Edo: you have posted outright lies, sir. Trayvon was not a gang banger, fake photos have been posted online by Stormfront a filthy white supremacist group. We have no knowledge he was a drug user... we do know his toxicology report came back clean from the coroner. His teeth were not gold.. he did, apparently, own a "grill" he wore on occasion [popular hip-hop fashion]. What is your agenda?

Only if he gets his way. Otherwise he's a pain in the ass.
