Melissa McCarthy Fires Extra From 'Tammy' Set For Bizarre Reason

When Melissa McCarthy fires an extra from a movie set, things must have gone very, very wrong. The bubbly Bridesmaids star gave a young woman her marching orders on the set of her and husband Ben Falcone's new movie Tammy for a frankly bizarre reason, reports TMZ.com.

The extra - a woman in her 20s - had brought along her child to the set for a daylong shoot by a lake. She was being paid $58. However, witnesses say the extra had been struggling to keep her kid occupied all morning and was constantly harping on the child to "stop it" and quiet down, loudly disrupting production apparently. 

Sources say the last straw came when the young mother harshly jerked the child up in the air by the wrist and McCarthy saw the whole thing. The director immediately had assistants eject the woman from the set saying she wouldn't tolerate such abuse on her set. The woman's identity was not disclosed and representatives for McCarthy made no immediate comment on the incident.

Tammy stars McCarthy, Susan Sarandon and Dan Aykroyd and follows the story of a woman who loses her job and learns that her husband has been unfaithful, choosing to hit the road with her hard-drinking grandmother to ease the pain. It hits cinemas on July 2, 2014.

What do you think about Melissa McCarthy firing an extra? Was she within her rights?
