The man who took over for Captain Phil Harris on "Deadliest Catch" could maybe use some sensitivity training, because he used Phil's death to rip a crew member in front of Phil's two sons.

TMZ has obtained a clip from the upcoming season of "D.C." in which Derrick Ray, the new skipper of the F/V Cornelia Marie, gets into a serious verbal spat with engineer Steve Ward.

During the fight, Phil's son Jake pleads for the two to make up and that's when Ray snaps and says,"Phil's not here, he's f**king dead, okay?"

To make things worse, Phil's other son Josh is also in earshot.

The new season kicks off April 12.
