Chevy Chase has a reputation in Hollywood for being somewhat difficult, famously clashing with Community creator Dan Harmon on a number of occasions during his tenure on the sitcom.
However, what went down in London over the weekend can't necessarily attributed to him - but rather the person who was hosting the Q&A event, namely former radio DJ Mike Read. Read may be something of an unknown entity here in Ireland, but it seems he's pretty well known in the UK - and not terribly liked if the Twitter reactions from the event are anything to go by.
In fact, the whole event seemed to go viral after it became clear that Read had gone full Partridge, and even whipped out a guitar at one point.
Here's just a smattering of what went down, according to Twitter.
Wow. Ex-DJ Mike Read went full Partridge interviewing #ChevyChase on stage at @EventimApollo tonight! An absolute car crash of an event. Mic issues upstaged by Read wanting answers on Chevy’s Hemorroids and Drug Use ðŸ˜³

Mike Read should be arrested for his ‘performance’ at the Hammersmith Apollo this evening #ChevyChase

Mike Read: so you play soccer?
Chevy Chase: yes
Mike Read: so is that English soccer?

Imagine interviewing a founding member of Saturday Night Live and never mentioning anyone in the cast. Be like asking a Beatle about tennis.

The guitar. Dear God, it isn't Partridge, it's David Brent.
