Chase plays the bigoted Pierce Hawthorne on the series, alongside Yvette Nicole Brown, Donald Glover, Dani Pudi, Alison Brie, Gillian Jacobs and Joel McHale.
A inside source has revealed to Deadline that Chase had an outburst while filming an episode of the programme on Friday (October 19).
According to the source, Chase was frustrated with the direction his character is going in and the offensive lines he had to say in a scene.
He allegedly said that eventually, his character would end up calling the two black characters on the show, played by Glover and Brown, "n***ers".
The outburst apparently upset the cast members, and Chase reportedly apologised later.
The 69-year-old has become increasingly vocal about his problems with his character and the show. Earlier this year he feuded with former showrunner Dan Harmon, who was eventually fired.
He was recently quoted saying that joining the show was a "big mistake".
The new season of Community, which was supposed to have premiered on October 19, will debut later this fall.
