WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Academy Award nominee Melissa McCarthy fired an extra from the Wilmington set of her movie “Tammy” yesterday, reports entertainment news site TMZ.

Witnesses tell TMZ the young mom had been struggling with her child all morning to the extent that it disrupted the production, which included more than 200 extras.

According to the website, sources say the last straw came when the mom jerked the child up in the air by the wrist, which McCarthy saw. The report says McCarthy immediately had PAs remove the woman saying she would not tolerate abuse on her set.
