A crewmember working on the set of the Television remake of Charlie's Angels, has been fired for allegedly slapping Minka Kelly's behind.
Following the incident Kelly turned around asking the crewmember to never disrespect her or any other woman in that way again, TMZ reported.
It has been reported from sources on the set that the man was immediately fired following ABC's zero tolerance for sexual harassment policy. According to TMZ, Kelly did not play any part in the decision and was upset that the man lost his job he moved with his family for the position.
Minka Kelly, Annie Ilonzeh and Rachael Taylor will be staring in the modern television series of the 1970's classic movie, those debuts on Thursday night.
The show has already received heavy criticism. NPR blogger Linda Holmes calls it an unnecessary knockoff of a movie franchise that was an utterly unnecessary knockoff of a rudimentary '70s action show, adding that the genuinely terrible acting, particularly from leads Rachael Taylor, Annie Ilonzeh and Minka Kelly, is hard to separate from the execrable script they've been saddled with.
Many have tweeted that the show fails miserably and offensively; judging from the previews many saying it just looks awful.
Really ABC another dam Charlie's Angels? Really are there no writers with any original script ideas in Hollywood anymore?Boooooooooooo!, tweeted Olivia Fox.
Meanwhile, Minka Kelly has been making more headlines for her alleged online romance with co-star Ramon Rodriguez over her actual performance in the show.
The 31-year-old actress has been spotted several times with her co-star having brunch and going for late night drinks, Celebuzz reported. Either party has not yet verified the rumors.
