Part of ABC's plan to relaunch the Charlie's Angels franchise involves bringing a new class of lady spies to the sexy new city of Miami, and they've actually been shooting here. The series debuts tomorrow night. However, it seems the choice to shoot in Miami has brought more sexual harassment than sexiness. Radar Online reports that a crew member was fired for slapping lead actress Minka Kelly on the ass with a $100 bill. Way to go, Miami -- you've actually made L.A. look classy.
Radar claims the incident happened August 23, and the staffer came up behind Derek Jeter's 31-year-old ex-girlfriend and gave her a firm pat on the rear with the Benjamin in his hand.
He tried to apologize the next day, but Kelly slapped him across the face. The man was removed from the set and wasn't allowed to return. The slap-happy crew member, though not identified, confirms the account but says it was all a misunderstanding.
"The whole set was buzzing about the incident," an 'anonymous source' tells Radar. "It was quite a scandal. One day he was there, and the next he was gone."
Silly, silly crew member. Don't you know that if you touch one of Charlie's Angels, she's only going to kick your ass? If you haven't learned basic manners and respect for women, have you at least learned nothing from the past 35 years of pop culture? You don't fuck with an Angel.
