The Eve French depicter allegedly told the man not to repeat the disrespectful action to any other woman, but she was upset that he lost the job.
Minka Kelly has become a victim of a sexual harassment on the set of "Charlie's Angels". Doing the unflattering action was none other than one crew member of the new ABC series who has now been fired by the network's executives.
An insider detailed to Star Magazine that the staffer came up behind Kelly and slapped her rear end while holding a $100 bill on August 23. The 31-year-old beauty was reportedly "shocked and absolutely irate" and "was still fuming about it hours later."
The crew member was said to be trying to apologize to Kelly the next day, but she slapped him in the face. The insider went on noting that the crew's action "seems like it was meant to be a joke, but clearly it was inappropriate."
However, other sources connected to the production told another version of Kelly's response. To TMZ, the sources said the "Friday Night Lights" alum reacted to the butt-slapping by telling him, "Please don't ever disrespect me or any other woman like that again."
The man was banned from the set before being subsequently fired after some witnesses reported the case to ABC's bosses, but Kelly had nothing to do with the network's decision. The actress, who will portray street racer Eve French on the remake version of the 1970s hit TV series, was allegedly upset that the man lost his job.
The sources added that the incident was not the first time for the staffer since he had done it to other women before.
