Instead, it had to do with severe accusations against Garlin by “Goldbergs” staff members and several inquiries into his behavior conducted by the department of human resources for the show.
The Murray Goldberg actor is reportedly physically and verbally violent to several persons on the set. When his firing was made public, many people rejoiced.
