'Community' creator apologizes to viewers for leaking Chevy Chase voicemail

Dan Harmon, the creator of the NBC sitcom "Community," issued an apology to fans of the show Wednesday after leaking a voicemail, allegedly from Chevy Chase, that illustrated the pair's feud.

In a scathing voicemail posted on Deadline, Chase can be heard calling Harmon an "abomination," among other things.

Harmon now has a case of the guilts for the message, judging by his note.

"I try to make for the good of the show, and the show is not an expression of my ego or entitlement, it's an expression of my desire to make strangers happy. When that's not happening, when I've done something that hurts an audience, it's always an accident. So I have to just acknowledge my mistake and apologize for it to the fans," Harmon wrote in a Tumblr post.

He continued, "I made the horrible, childish, self-obsessed, unaware, naive and unprofessional decision to play someone's voicemail to me. He didn't intend for 150 people to listen and giggle at it, and I didn't intend for millions of people to read angry reports about it."

Harmon added, "I was doing what I always do, and always get in trouble for doing, and always pay a steep price for doing. I was thinking about myself and I was thinking about making people laugh. I was airing my dirty laundry for a chuckle."

An email to NBC requesting a comment was not immediately returned.
