What's up with all the sexual harassment in the TV world lately? Just awful!
We're disgusted to report that Minka Kelly was slapped "across the rear end" by a crew member holding a $100 bill, while on the set of ABC's new Charlie's Angels series in Miami last month.
When the crew member tried to apologize to Minka the next day, we're hearing that she slapped him across the face, and he was fired soon thereafter.
Here's what an on-set source had to say about the incident:
"It seems like it was meant to be a joke, but clearly it was inappropriate. Minka was shocked and absolutely irate. She was still fuming about it hours later."
"The whole set was buzzing about the incident. It was quite a scandal. One day he was there, and the next he was gone."
Whether or not it was meant to be a joke, the crew member should NEVER have inappropriately touched Minka, and we can't say we're 100% surprised that she slapped him in retaliation.
Hopefully he's learned his lesson and will be more respectful of his co-workers in the future…if he ever gets a job again, that is!
