"Community" really can't catch a break lately. The cult favorite NBC comedy has been bumped from NBC's schedule yet again. And Friday, adding insult to injury, Chevy Chase created another controversy by dropping the N-word during his latest on-set diatribe.
Chase was reportedly upset about the even darker turn his character Pierce Hawthorne was taking in the would-be fourth season.

Played-out characters and diva actors get killed off TV dramas all the time, so who says it can't happen in a network comedy?
