A member of the crew of ABC's reboot of "Charlie's Angels" has been fired for slapping the butt of actress Minka Kelly, despite protests from the angel herself.

"It seems like it was meant to be a joke, but clearly it was inappropriate," a source TMZ.com. "Minka was shocked and absolutely irate."

The gossip site reports that Kelly scolded him by saying, "Please don't ever disrespect me or any other woman like that again." She was reportedly friendly with the man afterwards.

However ABC was not as friendly, firing the man for violating the company's zero-tolerance policy on sexual harassment.

TMZ reports that Kelly did not want him fired and was upset that he lost his job after moving his family to work on the show.

But an ABC source said that this was not an isolated incident -- he had done this before with other women.
