On Tuesday, the Mike & Molly star was filming Tammy, which is directed by her husband Ben Falcone, and watched as a woman in her 20s kept yelling at her child, according to TMZ. In addition to bringing the child with her for the daylong shoot, the woman reportedly jerked her child by the wrist. McCarthy, who witnessed the incident, said she wouldn't tolerate abuse on set and had the pair leave, TMZ says. Reps for McCarthy have not commented on the report.
McCarthy is on hiatus from filming her CBS show, which was recently renewed for a fourth season.
