When will the filming for 'Mission Impossible 7' conclude? The question has been haunting the movie buffs ever since the film’s productions came to a halt due to the ongoing pandemic. And, when the shooting for the high-budget project resumed, the lead actor Tom Crusie went on a rant, which seems to have cost the team a lot. Reportedly, following his infamous scolding of two crew members who failed to observe social distancing, five from the team have stepped down. 

The Sun reported, after the December 14 episode went public, another eruption followed. A source told the publication, “The first outburst was big but things haven’t calmed since. Tension has been building for months and this was the final straw. Since it became public there has been more anger and several staff have walked. But Tom just can’t take any more after all the lengths they have gone to just to keep filming at all. He’s upset others aren’t taking it as seriously as him. In the end, he’s the one who carries the can." 

The 58-year-old actor who is reprising his role as Ethan Hunt has reportedly spent millions of his own money as a producer to ensure the cast and crew are isolated on a cruise ship. Previously, the film faced a hiccup when it’s production had to be suspended after 12 people on the set were tested positive for Covid-19.

As the unprecedented time has left the fate of the film up in the air, the latest events that have occurred on its set, mainly owing to the actor’s outburst, has many wondering if Tom Cruise is in fact impacting ‘Mission Impossible 7’. And some have dubbed his behavior as "masculine toxicity". 

Joining the ongoing social media discussion surrounding Cruise’s temper tantrums, a few Twitter user expressed their opinion on the platform. One tweeted, "Tom Cruise don’t sit right with me". Another added, “Tom Cruise’s rant at crew members who violated COVID-19 safety measures on the set of “Mission: Impossible 7” was profane and a little over the top. But he said what many of us are thinking. All the time.” One social media user tweeted, "Tom Cruise sure is manipulative, highly Toxic, egomaniac, maybe the devil it self and what not... But he was right on the set!" One wrote, "Y’all are toxic for agreeing with Tom Cruise - like you can’t talk to people like that, especially at work."

Sources have cited that Cruise is going out of his way to make sure everyone's safe, while he himself is promptly following the social distancing norms. 

One tweeted, "@TomCruise You are absolutely right in your pissed off warning to the crew on your film! I lost my brother Carlos to Covid and three family members had it, IT IS NOT A JOKE!
