'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.

Those two guys were the most normal guys on the show. Also the ZZ-Topp guy. Look up Douche Bag and there's a picture of Richard Rawlings in his trademark acid wash jeans and girl's v-neck shirt. He's basically a used car sales who still dresses in hilarious Ed Hardy get ups that were the fashion 10 years back. The show is all but over once fans realize Tom and JOrdan are gone.

Richard Rawlings, is nothing but an alcoholic for sure.
Tick Tick Tick he is at about 14 minutes of his 15.
All that yapping noise he is always making is so stupid.
Some day if he ever sobers up he will realize it.

They should not have been fired. The "Boss" was wrong to use profanity with them first. If someone yells profanity to person there is usually going to be a negative response.

Tom and Jordan are great people. Tom was just sticking up for the kid that was being yelled at. I wish there were more selfless people like them. RRR made a big mistake in my opinion. Captain of the sinking ship. He blew a hole in his own boat. Operation Support Thomas Smith page on facebook is where fans can directly support Tom and Jordan.

During a winter corporate event that finished with a full tour if GasMonkey. My boss saw some young kids standing by an open garage door. The kids saw Richard and asked for an autograph. Richard said and I quote I don't have time to sign every damn thing people bring me. Walked past them around the corner. Where from our vantage point we could see him. He plopped down in a chair and cracked a beer and put his feet on the desk. He is a horrible person that is just out to bilk people out of their money. My boss snuck the kids in once out of sight of captain d-bag also gave them some swag that was given to us. Way to be to kids this guy is a class act if that class was held in a gutter of a burned out trailer park!

Richard, you and Arron rock. The show is awesome and the people that don't like must be a bunch of liberals. Because they don't like anything, unless its free. Peace

Sounds like some one was being a hypocrite and a baby....Like swearing never happens on the show. What harm was done by the photo?Nothing like helping a fan! Lost respect for Richard and GMG. I will support Tom and Jordan and will watch their show if they get one.

You have just lost a true fan.I guess Richard does not like the idea that so many turn in to the show just to see Tom.
