Community” creator Dan Harmon is offering amends in the fallout of his feud with series co-star Chevy Chase, at least to fans of the show. The producer called himself a “selfish baby and a rude a**hole” for playing Chevy Chase’s furious voice mail in public, and wrote an apology on his blog that called the move, “childish, self-obsessed, unaware, naive and unprofessional.”

He said playing the tape in front of an audience of 150 strangers at an L.A. comedy club was wrong, and that he actually thought it would be funny instead of spiteful.

In his post, he writes that “it’s conspicuously weird of me to say nothing at all about the giant fart with my name on it that you’ve been inhaling” and goes on to state that playing the voicemail “was a dumb, unclassy, inconsiderate move on my part. I’m very sorry it’s reflecting poorly on the show.”

He goes on to say the backlash has been a hard pill to swallow. “Thirty people a day calling me an a**hole makes me know and feel, in my heart, that I am an a**hole. I’m a real ‘customer is always right’ kind of guy in that regard.”

No word yet on Chase’s thoughts on the public apology.
