Tom Cruise has been making headlines all day. Why? Because he went ape-sh*t at staff on his latest movie as they weren’t following COVID precautions.
On the set of Mission Impossible Seven, where filming is currently taking place in England.
An audio clip of Cruise losing his mind was released by The Sun.

It was later verified by numerous news agencies as genuine.
In the clip, Cruise can be heard saying:
They’re back there in Hollywood making movies right now because of us. We are creating thousands of jobs.
That’s it. No apologies. You can tell it to the people that are losing their… homes because our industry is shut down.
We are not shutting this… movie down. Is it understood? If I see it again, you’re… gone.
I don’t ever want to see it again, ever! And if you don’t do it, you’re fired, if I see you do it again, you’re f*cking gone. And if anyone in this crew does it – that’s it, and you too and you too … don’t you ever f*cking do it again.
That’s it! No apologies. You can tell it to the people that are losing their f*cking homes because our industry is shut down. It’s not going to put food on their table or pay for their college education.
Tom Cruise pointed out specific members of the crew, telling one “you’re going to cost him his job.” “If you can’t be reasonable and I can’t deal with your logic, you’re fired,” he added https://t.co/fp5BhsLNh7— Variety (@Variety) December 16, 2020
Cruise has been both praised and criticised for his move but most are on his side, with some saying more in the industry should take Cruise’s stance to make a change.
