WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – The publicist for Tammy said she has "no comment" on a report posted on TMZ that an extra was reportedly fired by Melissa McCarthy for mistreating her own child on the set.

According to TMZ, the woman brought her young child for the daylong shoot and was having a difficult time keeping her kid under wraps.

Sources told TMZ the mother disrupted a scene when she was yelling at the child to "stop it" and to be quiet. But, it was when McCarthy saw the mother jerk her child up in the air by the wrist when she kicked the extra off the set, according to TMZ.

McCarthy is co-directing Tammy with her husband Ben Falcone. The production is being filmed on location in the Wilmington area.

Just last week, we were on the set of the comedy as it filmed in downtown Wilmington. WATCH: video from the set here.

According to IMDB, Tammy is a comedy about a woman who hits the road with her hard-drinking grandmother after losing her job and learning her husband has been unfaithful.

The film features Melissa McCarthy, Susan Sarandon, Kathy Bates and Dan Aykroyd.
