Dan Harmon vs. Chevy Chase: the Plot Thickens
TMZ is reporting that in the public fight between Dan Harmon and Chevy Chase, a big chunk of Community staffers have taken Chevy’s side:
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.” …
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.”
I will say that as someone who knows none of the parties involved and was not present for any of this business, the combo of starting a “Fuck Chevy” chant at the wrap party and then playing that voicemail in public comes off as a one-two punch of going too far. But hopefully the two of them can get past this and to a place where Pierce Hawthorne is still a student at Greendale. After the #sixseasonsandamovie push, to lose a main castmember over such petty-sounding fighting would be a sad thing indeed. Kiss and make up, boys. We’re all adults here.
