Bridesmaids star Melissa McCarthy fired an extra on the set of her upcoming film Tammy. According to TMZ, the woman disrupted filming by being verbally and physically abusive to her young child. Sources tell the website that the woman could be heard reprimanding her child most of the day but that the last straw was when she quickly lifted the child up in the air by the wrist. Melissa reportedly saw the whole thing and asked production assistants to have the woman leave because she would not tolerate abuse on her set. Melissa is co-directing the film with her husband Ben Falcone.
