Chevy Chase Uses N-Word During Rant on Community Set, According to Reports
5:11 pm, October 20th, 2012
Chevy Chase reportedly used the N-word during a rant on the “Community” set on Friday.
Multiple outlets are reporting that the actor-comedian used the racist slur during a tirade in which he complained about the direction of his bigoted character.
The outburst is being characterized as a moment of frustration with the racial content of the script rather than a deliberate or malicious verbal attack on any specific person.
Chase’s explosion is said to have been in the presence of African-American cast members Yvette Nicole Brown and Donald Glover, although that has not been confirmed.
He reportedly later apologized to cast and crew for the epithet.
There are conflicting reports as to whether the incident briefly interrupted production on the sitcom.
NBC has not commented on the situation.
Gossip Cop will have updates.
