Chevy Chase apologizes for using N-word on 'Community' set




Chevy Chase has apparently apologized for using the dreaded N-word on the set of Community on Friday while complaining about dialogue for his character, Pierce Hawthorne. What's the big surprise? It's Pierce Hawthorne, after all.

The 69-year-actor told his castmates the use of the word wasn't directed at any coworker, but TMZ said Chase thought he would soon be asked to call African-American actors Donald Glover and Yvette Nicole Brown that word at some point. The pair were in the scene being worked on when Chase went on his tirade, but Chase quickly clarified what he was saying, The Hollywood Reporter notes.

The premiere of the fourth season has been delayed repeatedly, so this is just the latest hiccup. You know what happens to intelligent shows with good storylines and exceptional actors go, right? No, not the Emmys -- straight into the garbage chute, where we all sit around and speculate if they'll ever do a movie. Say, when's that Arrested Development movie coming out, anyway?
