Tom Cruise Yells at 'Mission Impossible' Crew Members for Breaking COVID-19 Protocols
Audio of an enraged Tom Cruise leaked Tuesday night, documenting the actor’s tirade against Mission: Impossible 7 crew members for reportedly violating COVID-19 protocols.
In the explicit nearly 3-minute clip, published by The Sun, Cruise goes off on the London set and threatens to fire the two crew members who lapsed on the team’s safety guidelines.
“If I see you do it again, you’re f***ing gone. And if anyone in this crew does it, that’s it,” he said.
Cruise also serves as a producer, and is likely scared that a COVID outbreak could once again halt production of the movie, which was previously shut down for a few days back in February while they were filming in Italy.
“They’re back there in Hollywood making movies right now because of us. We are creating thousands of jobs, you motherf***ers," Cruise yelled. "That’s it. No apologies. You can tell it to the people that are losing their f***ing homes because our industry is shut down."

If Tom Cruise is willing to jump off buildings and hang onto airplanes for our entertainment, I don’t think it’s too much for him to expect his crew to wear masks and stay 6ft apart from each other.

I too have been on several sets and if I caught someone on mine breaking COVID protocols I’d have their ass replaced before the hour was out. Not mad at this at all. https://t.co/AoP6ncnEow

Other criticized Cruise's aggressive approach toward the crew members.
1. Please remember as you're praising the audio of Tom Cruise yelling at crew members who don't follow Covid restrictions that he's the chief enabler of a criminal organization that has destroyed people's lives, bankrupted and separated families, led to people being imprisoned,

At least we know they're trying to take COVID-19 seriously?
I’m shocked Tom Cruise believes in COVID.
