Devilish behavior is plaguing ABC’s “Charlie’s Angels” remake, according to reports of sexual harassment on the Miami set.

A crew member has been fired for allegedly groping one of the stars, Minka Kelly who plays Angel Eve French.

On August 23, the staffer approached the actress from behind and slapped her across the butt, while holding a $100 bill in his hand.

“It seems like it was meant to be a joke, but clearly it was inappropriate,” an on-set source is quoted as saying. “Minka was shocked and absolutely irate. She was still fuming about it hours later.”

The crew member reportedly tried to apologize to Kelly the next day, but she slapped him in the face.

“The whole set was buzzing about the incident,” the source adds. “It was quite a scandal. One day he was there, and the next he was gone.”

The new “Charlie’s Angels,” which stars Rachael Taylor and Annie Ilonzeh as the other two angels, premieres this Thursday night at 8/7c on ABC.
