We hate it when we see parents mistreating their kids, but what can you do besides give them a dirty look or exchange few words they won't even listen to?
Well, if you're Melissa McCarthy, you can fire their abusive a$$!
The Bridesmaids scene stealer was filming her new movie Tammy with hubby Ben Falcone when an extra disrupted the vibe of the lakeside set.
It seems the background artist had brought her young child, who clearly did not want to be there, and was disciplining the kid for being uncooperative.
But sources say when the woman jerked the child up by the wrist, that was just too much for comedy genius Melissa!
Gurl had the extra thrown out, saying she would NOT tolerate abuse on her set!
Way to go, gurl! We think everyone should follow your example! If you see something, say something- something like, "You're fired!"
