Chevy Chase showed his inner mafioso gambino, when he dropped the n-word in an explosive rant about the lines written for his character on Community.
Chase plays a bigot named Pierce on the cult show, but he doesn’t like the direction of his character and thinks if he doesn’t put his foot down, he’ll soon be asked to call Troy (Daniel Glover) or Shirley (Yvette Nicole Brown) the n-word. That’s all well and good, but while complaining, Chase actually did use the n-word – and it wasn’t in his script.
Deadline reported that the outburst upset the cast and Chase later apologized.
Last spring, Chase lashed out about his role yet again, saying:
“It was a big mistake! I just sort of hung around because I have three daughters and a wife, and I figured out I might as well make some bread, every week, so I can take care of them in the way they want. The hours are hideous, and it’s still a sitcom on television, which is probably the lowest form of television.”
Let’s hope the writers fix the direction of Chevy’s character, so the guy can stop dropping n-bombs on his Community.
