Community: Yvette Nicole Brown Calls Out "Greendale Seven" Disrespect

If you're a Community fan, then you know the "Greendale Seven" is a roster with Joel McHale (Jeff), Gillian Jacobs (Britta), Danny Pudi (Abed), Yvette Nicole Brown (Shirley), Alison Brie (Annie), Donald Glover (Troy) & Chevy Chase's (Pierce) name on it (with Jim Rash and Ken Jeong on our hearts' "honorary mention" list). But let's say you're not a Community fan or you're writing a book like 1001 TV Series You Must Watch Before You Die? It would take a matter of mere minutes to get the rundown we just gave you above. So we can respect where Brown's coming from when she took to Twitter earlier today to call out a publication for leaving her contribution to the series and Shirley's story out of the passage for Community. Along with leaving Brown off of a casting list that noted the other six actors and including someone who was never a series regular, Brown also noted that Rash and Jeong's contributions also deserved respectful acknowledgment.

Well, let's just say that Harmon's going off the grid with his choice- a very personal one that should make Community fans happy. And not just because Harmon was making the case for their beloved series but also for the teasingly optimistic way he wrapped his post: "#sixseasonsandasteadybutcautiousbuildofincreasinglyexcitingspeculation":
