'Fast N' Loud' Star

I Got Fired

For Cussing at My Boss

2/17/2014 2:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0217-fast-n-loud-article-01Discovery Channel's breakout hit "Fast N' Loud" just booted two of the show's most popular characters ... and one of the jobless guys says it's because they were fast with swearing at a manager ... and loud.

Tom Smith tells TMZ ... he and co-star Jordan Butler were sacked from the Gas Monkey Garage -- the auto shop featured in the show -- after they let a fan with cystic fibrosis pose for a pic next to a Rolls-Royce owned by shop owner Richard Rawlings.

Smith claims the manager on duty flipped out and told them to "get the f*** away from the car."  Now here's the big mistake ...  we're told Smith yelled back, "Chill the f*** out" -- something boss men don't take kindly to. So Rawlings fired them both a few hours later.

0217-fast-n-loud-sub-jordan-01Rawlings tells TMZ he's had nothing but problems with the 2 guys.

Tom and Jordan already have jobs at another garage -- and they're hopeful Discovery hooks them up with a spin-off.

Discovery will never give dumb and dumber a spinoff show on their own. They were annoying idiots on the show anyway.

Good show, But Tom and Jordan provided lots of character. The owner Richard is very cavalier and certainly is not above abusing the help on his own, many times berating them for seemingly nothing, so this sounds fishy. The show is the loser if these 2 very talented mechanics are gone. Hopefully Richard smartens up and brings them back, otherwise if there is a spin off, I'm going to the spin off.

Always be respectful to the chain of command. Never bite the hand that feeds you unless there is an instance of rape, sexual assault, or attempting a worker to commit a felony. This guy got what he deserves.

This has to be a publicity stunt. This "show" is more comedy, quick edits to see cars worked on, to end up with Richard and his beer. If you're a car guy, you never ever learn anything accept that you can get want you want as long as you have a film crew behind you.

Richard Rawlings is nothing but an alcoholic. If you watch the show. You know what I mean. The guys were trying to be nice and this punk fires them. Wait till that break out hit, which I used to watch till this story loses fans. He will beg them to come back. I hope they say no, unless they get a large amount of money.

Without Tom on the show it won't be worth watching. The best parts were the ones featuring Tom. Now it'll just be some arrogant alcoholic douchebag flashing his cash and ordering people around like he bought them too. Oh wait that's what it normally is, only now it just means more camera time for Richards ego.
