Despite the make-nice between Chevy Chase and Community creator Dan Harmon, who apologized for leaking an expletive-laden voicemail rant from Chase earlier this month, a new tape has surfaced to ripple the waters. In another slow-boiling message, obtained by Celebuzz, Chase expresses his frustration with Harmon’s editorial decisions on Community. “Obviously you don’t get my humor at all,” says Chase getting increasingly angry until he essentially threatens to quit, saying, “You’re missing the f—ing point. … It’s just a f—ing mediocre sitcom! I want people to laugh and this isn’t funny.” Listen below.
What do you think, PopWatchers? Does Chase have a point, or is he being a prima donna? Though it’s unclear when this particular voice message was originally recorded — Celebuzz speculates March 2011 — are you surprised it emerged just a week after Chase and Harmon supposedly sstopped their feud? And are you worried how it may impact the future of the NBC sitcom?
