Chevy Chase sorry for 'Community' racial slur

NEED TO KNOW
  • Report: Chase immediately says he's sorry after using the N-word on the set of his NBC show ‘Community’
  • Chase allegedly used the word after becoming frustrated with his character on the show
Chevy Chase reportedly apologizes after using the N-word on the set of Community.

Chevy Chase has reportedly apologized for Friday’s N-word outburst on the set of his NBC show "Community."

According to Deadline, Chase, who plays Pierce Hawthorne on the show, became upset and began to question the dialogue he was supposed to use with co-stars Donald Glover and Yvette Nicole Brown, who are African-American. Chase used the racial slur in front of Glover and Brown, but according to reports it was not directed toward them.

A source tells The Hollywood Reporter after the incident, Chase “immediately apologized” for using the N-word. 

This isn’t the first time Chase has run into problems on “Community.” Earlier this year, a voice mail from Chase to former show-runner Dan Harmon went viral after Harmon played it at a comedy show. In the voice mail, Chase is heard calling “Community” a "f---king mediocre sitcom." Harmon was later dismissed from the show. 

In an interview with UK's Huffington Post, Chase called taking the role on "Community" 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," Chase said.
