Umm, this is NOT what we were expecting from TLC.
Check out the official statement (below)!

Chevy Chase just does NOT know when to shut his mouth, does he?!
The veteran comedian has made no secret of his general disdain for Community, the NBC comedy on which he portrays the character Pierce, but despite his angry tirade against series creator Dan Harmon - which may or may not have led to his firing as showrunner - and subsequent comments that the show was the "lowest form of television," he has managed to out-do himself in the OFFENSIVE department this time around!
According to sources on set, Chase lost it during a taping over the bigoted dialogue his character says, and began a temper tantrum that led to him to suggest that eventually, the writers are going to want to call African American actors Donald Glover and Yvette Nicole Brown's characters the N-word!
And while insiders have revealed the rest of the cast was understandably furious about the outburst, we're glad to see that Brown took the high road and only posted the following on Twitter:
I have the gift of walking away. Always have. #ThatIsAll

What an absolute class act!
Way to go, gurl!
But seriously! Enough is ENOUGH!
We hear that eventually Chase apologized to the cast and crew, but if he is really THAT unhappy with the direction of the series, why hasn't he left yet?
What do U think?? Should Community get rid of Chevy Chase??
