The feud between “Community” star Chevy Chase and series showrunner Dan Harmon has been in the news for weeks, and now a new audio tape has surfaced that adds insight into what it’s all about, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The story reports: “Chase, who left a vulgarity-laden tantrum on the voicemail of series creator and showrunner Dan Harmon, which then went viral after Harmon played it publicly at a comedy show, calls Community a ‘f–king mediocre sitcom’ that suffers from a serious disconnect between what happens on set and what is seen by the audience.”
Chase also says on the tape: "The other part of the disconnect is, obviously, you don’t get my humor at all, or what it is I do that’s funny, that actually makes people laugh. … There are two choices. One is the story line — like everybody gives a s–t about the f–king story when they don’t even know who the characters are — or there’s make people laugh."
Harmon apologized last week for playing Chase’s comments publicly, as previously reported.
