Melissa McCarthy allegedly fired an extra from her new comedy for mistreating her own child.

The 'Bridesmaids' star - who has two children, Vivian, six, and Georgette, three, with her husband Ben Falcone - reportedly had the woman, believed to be in her twenties, removed from of the set of 'Tammy' in Wilmington, North Carolina on Monday (20.05.13), after she ''harshly jerked'' her young child, who had accompanied her to the set.

A source told gossip website that the young woman had been struggling to control her child, believed to be four or five years old, all morning during the shoot by a lake, for which she was being paid $58 to be appear in a scene as an extra with 200 other people.

The mother eventually lost her temper and ''harshly jerked'' the child up in the air by the wrist and was loud enough to disrupt the production.

The incident was witnessed in full by Oscar-nominee Melissa, who is directing the movie alongside her husband, and she immediately requested that her personal assistant remove the woman, saying that she wouldn't tolerate abuse on her set.

The woman's identity was not disclosed and a spokesperson for the actress has yet to comment.

Melissa recently revealed that she was very impressed by Sandra Bullock's son Louis for being so protective of her daughters.

The three-year-old tot became close friends with her children when Sandra and Melissa worked together on Paul Feig's 'The Heat' and she previously said: ''Louis was my Georgie's first friend her own age. And all three of our kids, my two kids and her boy, they still play together. They have a special relationship.''

Paul joked: ''Louis' really protective of her too. He punched out two paparazzi during filming.''

Melissa added: ''Very! Very protective of both girls. He literally does the straight arm and pushes you away and puts his hands up and backs the girls up. You're not going to want to mess with Louis. He's a tough cookie.''
