davidphogan: He was reacting to getting pushed too far. This doesn't seem like anything more than a poor attempt at marketing Community.

AdolfOliverPanties: He was actually railing about them making his character too much of a bigot. Maybe he shouldn't have used the dreaded word, but his heart was in the right place for once.
Skr: I'm with him on this one. He should be able to express his discomfort with the direction his character is going, especially if the character is going that way just to piss him off.
BSABSVR: davidphogan: He was reacting to getting pushed too far. This doesn't seem like anything more than a poor attempt at marketing Community.Yeah. Kids go wild for the uninpredictable Chevy Chase.This post brought to you by the early 80's
Uncle Pooky: Chase hates being on this show, he's made no secret of that. Keeping him around is just continually asking for, and receiving, a headache.
BilltheThrill: Chase is unhappy with his character being racist, yet he's been fine with his character being unfunny for three years.
shower_in_my_socks: Yeah, sounds like a non-story. Also, how much of a d!ck must Harmon be to work with if they kept Chevy over him? Chase's character is by far the easiest one for the show to drop.
Will-Mun: shower_in_my_socks: Yeah, sounds like a non-story. Also, how much of a d!ck must Harmon be to work with if they kept Chevy over him? Chase's character is by far the easiest one for the show to drop.But Chase is also the only "name" they have on the show. Picture it this way, you're the creator and the show runner of a fairly popular show featuring Mel Gibson. You two HATE each other and it comes to a decision that someone has to be removed from the production.It doesn't matter if Mel is going on antisemitic rants every other week... He's a big time star and will draw in an audience. You're just the name under the "Created by" credit on the title sequence. You're gonna get fired no matter how much it hurts the product, because studio execs would rather have a name than a quality product.That's not to say Harmon wasn't a dick, my reading of the behind the scenes situations show that he's a very self aware nightmare to work with, I'm just saying it doesn't matter who was the bigger dick, Chase wasn't going anywhere.
Will-Mun: He's a big time star and will draw in an audience.

B.L.Z. Bub: Will-Mun: He's a big time star and will draw in an audience. That analogy applies to Chevy Chase?[media.comicvine.com image 479x356]
Epiphany: Will-Mun: He's a big time star and will draw in an audience.He is not and the show can't draw in an audience.
Cymbal: Haha, like this even matters. The fact is Whitney was brought back this season, before this "not funny anymore since the end of the first season", craptacular shiatfest of a show. And that's all you need to know.
Epiphany: The older generation might remember him with a lot more respect,
