Tom Cruise’s vocal eruption on the set of “Mission: Impossible 7” over a crew COVID-19 breach has served as a controversial, but bracingly effective wake-up call in a world dealing with pandemic fatigue amid a deadly second wave. “Tom Cruise is correct here FYI. Sorry/Not sorry,” tweeted Josh Gad as the leaked audio became a viral talking point Wednesday.
Cruise’s expletive-laden outburst, recorded and leaked from the U.K. set of the multi-million dollar action film reportedly over two crew members standing too close together, has been criticized as heavy-handed the day after it was published Tuesday by Britain’s The Sun tabloid newspaper.
“If I see you do it again, you’re (expletive) gone. And if anyone on this crew does it, that’s it – and you too and you too,” Cruise, the “Mission: Impossible” hands-on producer and star, is heard shouting at crew on the audio.
