Yvette Nicole Brown Urges Forgiveness For Dan Harmon’s ‘Community’ Tirade [EXCLUSIVE VIDEO]
Yvette Nicole Brown recently starred in Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters alongside Logan Lerman, but is best known for her work on NBC sitcom Community, where she plays Shirley – a passive-aggressive social authoritarian who’s often quite vocal about her religious beliefs. Brown talked about the hit comedy series and about welcoming Dan Harmon back into the fold in an exclusive interview with Uinterview.
Harmon, the Community producer who was fired after the show’s third season, is another person Brown has a soft spot for. “I’m super happy that Dan’s back…. I think he’s perfect in his humanity,” Brown told Uinterview exclusively. “That’s who he is, and I adore him, and we’re so happy to have him back.”
Addressing the producer’s past controversies, in which he likened the entire Season 4 of the show to being “raped”, Brown urged forgiveness. “I think anybody that creates something can have their thoughts about how it’s taken care of,” Brown mused. “Dan is a very colorful character, he’s a very outspoken character, but he also is a very sensitive and caring person. So he speaks his mind, and if he says something that hurts someone, or upsets someone, no one apologizes quicker than he does, which is exactly what he did.”
Hopefully, with Harmon back, Brown will see her storyline dream for Community come to fruition. “I’ve been trying to get a romantic comedy made for about four or five years,” she revealed. “I’ve really been begging them to do a romantic comedy.”
Community‘s fifth season is scheduled to begin airing sometime in 2014.
