Chevy Chase is getting support from several staff members at “Community” … who tell our sources 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.”
