Tom Cruise Takes a Break from Filming After Five Crew Members Quit After Tirade Fallout

A-list actor Tom Cruise was on a Mission Impossible: preventing the spread of COVID-19 during the filming of the franchise’s seventh installment. But after two verbal tirades and five crew members quitting, he’s decided to stop filming early.

Cruise will go on an early Christmas break, wrapping his role in the production for the year on Friday to head across the pond on his private jet to join son Connor, 25, in Miami for the holidays.  

The star and executive producer of Mission Impossible: 7, is taking a much-needed break after his expletive laden tirade at crew members failing to adhere to coronavirus protocols was leaked to the press earlier this week.  

“I don’t ever want to see it again. Ever!” he exploded at the film’s fifty-person crew. “And if you don’t do it you’re fired, and I see you do it again and you’re f***ing gone. And if anyone on this crew does it that’s it, and you too and you too. And you, don’t you ever f***ing do it again. That’s it. No apologies.”

Tensions on the set have been reportedly building for months, and after Cruise’s first outburst, a second one followed that resulted in five crew members quitting their jobs and walking off the set.  

Cruise is heavily invested in the film shoot’s COVID-19 safety protocols. He personally funded the cast and crew’s housing accommodations by renting an out of commission cruise ship to help avoid on-set outbreaks, after production was forced to pause in October when twelve crew members tested positive.  

Hopefully a little fun in the sun will help Ethan Hunt regain his cool.

This is what happens to you when you believe in a fake religion made up by a science fiction writer as a joke on his editor.

Then there is the Hollywood syndrome that elevates their importance to high above us mere mortals. Fame and fortune gone to their heads.

I did notice when I saw the stills that were released of the filming, there were no “covid protocols” in effect as far as the actors themselves were concerned.. where are all of the masks?

A person that is cruel to the lowest blue collar workers, like clean-up crew and camera operators, the cogs of the machine that we all need in every industry, is not a person that I ever want to be in a room with.
This is why I never want to disrespect or mistreat retail workers, or waiters, or whatever else.
As for Tom Cruise, it looks like he needs to purchase some more Scientology Indulgences Dianetics.

Tom Cruise is a jackass, he always was and always will be. The only movie I ever saw him in was Top Gun and he did a really good job in his role as an arrogant Naval pilot. He pulled off the role so well because he is an arrogant ass, so he was actually just playing himself. I wouldn’t go see one of his movies if they paid me. OK, maybe if they paid me, but it would have to be a lot of money.

Minority Report was an awesome film. But Tom Cruise is still a total f*cking scumbag.

I think that this Mission Impossible plot should be about Ethan Hunt getting Covid and him trying to recover from it. Maybe that might calm him down a little. I think that his religion forbids him from going to the hospital so that should be a real trick if that were to happen and he needed their services.

If he is paying all expenses, then he should have the right to make health demands

Cruise isn’t paying ALL expenses. I heard he contributed very little financially speaking when it comes to huge film franchises like this. Even if he did fund the whole thing, it doesn’t make it right to yell and degrade your workers just because they were standing too close to each other while watching a monitor. This just goes to show how much Koolaid people are drinking to actually believe the elites have the right to berate the lower classes over a fake pandemic. Tom hopped on a private plane and headed to Dubai so I doubt he really is concerned about Covid. If that was the case his short ass should have stayed home so he can start his important film shoots again. Doubt he will quarantine on his way back lol.

What a lot of nonsense! its just a virus! If Government and Media had not got involved, people can think for themselves. if you aren’t feeling well, stay home. Most of the tests are giving false positives and all this 10 days hibernation and tracing and tracking anyone you came in contact with? Chinese Communist tactics.Thatsa what the do in China. No one is given any privacy

I agree with him. A lot of money and energy spent to create the next installment in a successful franchise. If people can’t stick to Covid protocols, he *should* fire them.
There are plenty of people looking for work and willing to comply that will fill their shoes. Kudos to TC for actually taking this seriously.

Hollywood hysteria again. In the interest of caution, his pilots ought to lock the cabin door in flight. And at $600 million, this guy ought to retire and let Hollywood exploit some other poor nut.

Dear Tom
Lol they don’t have to listen to your childish rant! Christianity is not a science by the way..It’s a relationship. I would have quit as well. As usual,someone will pick up your broken pieces and you keep on moving on.
