Some staffers are reportedly backing the Pierce Hawthorne depicter in his feud with the NBC show's creator as saying, 'What Dan Harmon did was f**ked up... Chevy is a pleasure to work with.'

Some "" staffers are allegedly standing on 's side in his public war of words with creator Dan Harmon. Soon after the story of their ugly feud grabbed the headlines, sources told TMZ that some crew members feel the actor was "unfairly attacked" by Harmon.

Commenting on Harmon's action of giving a "f**k you, Chevy" speech during the show's season 3 wrap party, the sources said, "What Dan Harmon did was f**ked up." They went on defending the Pierce Hawthorne of the comedy series as saying, "Chevy is a pleasure to work with."

According to the info obtained by the gossip site, a dispute between Chase and Harmon that took place during the filming of the season finale last month was blown out of proportion by Harmon. Describing the 68-year-old comedian as being "calm and polite" during the taping, the sources detailed that Chase had an issue with one of the scenes.

Chase reportedly told producers he would "respectfully decline" to participate in the scene unless it was rewritten. When the show's honchos shot down his request, he left the set without causing any drama. Some even thought the issue had been handled privately because Chase showed up at the wrap party. Thus, they were shocked when Harmon unleashed the expletive word to Chase at the bash.

"What Dan did was embarrassing and left a sour taste in all of our mouths... so low class," one source commented, before adding, "The staff was not pissed at Chevy... We're pissed at Dan. We all hope Chevy comes back next season."

Deadline previously reported that Chase left Harmon a voice message filled with profane language following the incident at the wrap party. Part of the voice message leaked onto the web after Harmon allegedly played it in front of other people, revealing that the former host of "The Chevy Chase Show" called the co-founder of website Channel 101 "fat" and "an alcoholic" among other things.
