Source - Tom Cruise won't have to fire a bunch of people for breaking COVID protocols on the "Mission: Impossible 7" set, 'cause a lot of them are leaving on their own.
Tom's raging tirade seems to have sparked an exodus among ticked-off crew members. The Sun, which got the ranting audio, says at least 5 staffers have quit after Tom's outburst.
As you know, TC went nuclear on the UK set, tearing into crew members for breaking COVID protocols and warning them they'd be "f****** gone" if they did so again. He was reportedly set off by 2 crew members standing within 6 feet of each other around a monitor
Apparently, things haven't cooled off around set since the epic rant heard round the world. The Sun says Tom had another meltdown Tuesday after audio of his first eruption leaked.
Tom seems to be feeling pressure to get the movie done during the pandemic, his rant indicated as much, but ya gotta imagine the men and women working behind the scenes are also stressed and some of 'em ain't happy under Tom's thumb.
Anndddd just like that you lost me. I defended Tom in my first blog, but I'm not going to do it here. I can't. One freakout is fine if your heart is in the right place, which I think his was, but two is simply unacceptable. There's no audio of it (yet), but there will be. Someone has that video they're just waiting for the right time to drop it and when they do it is going to be GLORIOUS.
Here's the audio of the first freakout for those of you who didn't get a chance to listen...
He should've left it alone after that. Now he's going to be dragged all over the internet for all of eternity. People are going to post videos like this and there's nothing he can do about it...
Sad. Hopefully whoever has the audio of freak out number two releases it because I want to hear what he said. We all do. Good on the staffers who walked out and stood up for themselves. I'm sure they've already been replaced but still, it's the principal that matters.
That said, I'll still be watching the movie when it comes out. If it's anywhere are good as the last six it'll be worth the watch. Take it away, Ethan!
