Dan Harmon and Chevy Chase Are in the Middle of an Ugly Public Feud
Despite the improving ratings, things aren’t all paintballs and imaginariums in the world of Community. Series creator Dan Harmon and Chevy Chase are in the middle of a relatively public feud, one that involved Chevy walking off set on the last day of shooting, Harmon insulting him in a speech during the wrap party in front of his family, and Chase leaving an expletive-filled voicemail for Harmon that Harmon then played in front of an audience at a show in LA. It’s a mess!
Both Harmon and Chase have reputations for being difficult to work with, so it’s not entirely surprising that the two would butt heads — apparently, Chase has walked off set a few times before. What remains to be seen is what this means for Chase’s involvement in a potential season four, which is looking more and more like it’s going to happen. One would like to think that cooler heads will prevail, or at least a realization of mutual dependence, and they can get past this and back to making what will inevitably end up as a bunch of animated gifs on Tumblr together next fall. Stay together for the gif makers, guys!
