Chevy Chase has apologized to the co-stars of his TV sitcom Community after using the N-word on set, it has been claimed. Apparently upset with how his character was being portrayed, the actor snapped during a scene on Friday, suggesting he may next be asked to call his co-stars Donald Glover and Yvette Nicole Brown the term, according to Deadline.com.

The 69-year-old actor is not believed to have directed the comment at any of his cast members.

Glover and Brown play characters Shirley and Troy Barnes on the NBC series.

The alleged rant comes just six months after a bitter argument between Chase and the show’s creator, Dan Harmon, erupted very publicly when a profanity-laden voicemail the actor left for his boss went viral. 

Chase, who plays towelette tycoon Pierce Hawthorne on the programme, revealed he didn’t mind what he was about to say being shared with their colleagues after Harmon apparently humiliated him in front of his family.

‘I don’t get talked to like that by anyone. Certainly not in front of my wife and daughter you goddamn a******… fat s***,’ he says.

He added, ‘I’ve got nothing to say to you except you can suck my c***. Is that clear?’

In the clip circulating the internet, Chevy labels his superior ‘fat’ and an ‘alcoholic’.

The voicemail hit the internet in April after it was played out in front of a room full of people.

The telephone message is introduced in the meeting, identifying the voice as the actor, who goes on to call him a ‘stinko’ and an ‘abombination’ – much to the group’s amusement.

Chase then prompts suspicion he may quit the show when he goes on to criticize Harmon’s livelihood by saying: ‘Your writing is getting worse and worse.’

Deadline also reports Chase walked off the set on the final day of shooting in March without filming vital scenes.

Apparently the Three Amigos favorite in that incident asked for a rewrite of a scene, insisting that he would not appear in it as it was.

Executives refused and Chase left the set, although it is claimed he did so without creating a disturbance.

The incident led to Harmon giving a speech at the wrap party where he encouraged staff to yell ‘f*** you’ after the star.
