The actor reportedly given employees an X-rated dressing after catching them violating UK Covid rules at Warner Bros. Studios in Leavesden, Hertfordshire on Tuesday.
A source claimed that after news of the first outbreak was released, there was "more anger" over the already "strained" production.

They added that it is Tom who feels responsible for the production after investing so much time and money making sure that precautions are taken to allow the team to film.
MailOnline reached out to Tom Cruise representatives for comment at this point.
The Hollywood star has previously been reported to abuse workers for breaking social distancing rules while filming at Warner Bros. Studios.
The actor, referring to the factual demeanor of his character Ethan Hunt, reportedly told them, "If I see you again, you'll be damned gone."
The paper said the dressing was taped on to which he added, “And if anyone on this crew does it, it is – and so are you.
“And you, won't you ever do it again? We're not closing this damn movie. & # 39;

Filming for the newest movie in the blockbuster franchise – Mission: Impossible 7 – is in full swing.
The actor was shot for the film in Rome – in which he will repeat the role of the fictional American secret agent Ethan Hunt.
Last month, Tom was spotted behind the wheel of a vintage yellow Fiat 500 in the Italian capital as he and a group of police cars prepared for dramatic stand-off scenes.
The star was seen trying to drive his tiny vehicle down a wide city boulevard before apparently stuck when he encountered an army of patrol cars and bicycles.
In the past few weeks he was seen with his Mission: Impossible 7 co-star Hayley Atwell (38) filming a series of scenes in the Italian capital.
Filming also took place in Venice as well as in Great Britain and Norway.
Frustrating: Filming was already delayed for months after COVID-19 spread across Italy, where production was located in March, leading to its release being pushed back
But the film has already experienced delays. The crew had to stop production because of Covid.
Many of the most important scenes were to be shot in Italy – that was once the center of the world pandemic.
In October, the Top Gun star held crisis talks with director Christopher McQuarrie after 12 people on the set reportedly tested positive for COVID-19.
It was said that health chiefs were following up the contacts of those who tested positive after filming was suspended, hoping it was an isolated incident.
Last month, The Sun reported that 150 extras for the film had been informed not to come in to shoot scenes that were scheduled for the evening.
Although no official reason was given for the sudden decision, it was alleged that a coronavirus test was positive from production and that filming had to be temporarily suspended.
The crew also urged the public to distance themselves socially while waiting to see the stars, while Tom and director Christopher allegedly made the request as well.
The star wore a mask on the set and is said to have been on the lookout for Covid rule violations.
According to The Sun, he paid £ 500,000 of his own money to pay for a cruise ship that the cast and crew can isolate on.
Mission: Impossible 7 is slated for release on November 19, 2021.
