TJ Miller's Silicon Valley Co-Star: He's A "Petulant Brat"
Slamming Miller as a "bully", she said her experience filming Silicon Valley "was kind of a nightmare".
Silicon Valley star TJ Miller is back in the news again, with his former co-star Alice Wetterlund slamming him as a "bully" and a "petulant brat" on Twitter.
Yesterday, the comedian and actress tweeted sarcastically that it was "definitely time to rehabilitate TJ Miller's career".
“We can’t afford to lose talent at a time like this, we need more — not less — comedic hijinks such as *checks notes* calling in a fake bomb threat,” she wrote.
Wetterlund was referring to an incident back in March, when Miller was "drunk" (allegedly) and thought it would be a LOL-and-a-half to call in a bomb threat to an Amtrak train, a move which caused the train line and passengers hours of delays and got Miller arrested.
After getting his dumb ass charged with intentionally conveying false information about an explosive device on a train to law enforcement, if he's convicted he'll face up to five years behind bars. He's currently out on $100k bail and awaiting trial for that.
Wetterlund was far from finished, though, as she slammed the Silicon Valley set as a "nightmare" and dragged her former co-stars as "complicit in [Miller's] unprofessionalism."
“I hope to not ruin it for you, but TJ Miller was a bully and petulant brat and pretty much everyone who had any power on that (almost all male) set, including the male cast members, enabled him and were complicit in his unprofessionalism," she told a fan of the show, adding: "They can f**k off forever.”
“I’m pretty open about this, and I don’t know if other women on the show had a different experience than me, but it was kind of a nightmare,” she wrote, replying to a fan who asked why she continued on the show that she "needed the job" and "had no idea" that sets weren't always "toxic and weird".
HBO responded to Wetterlund's tweets, saying: “While this is the first time we have heard Alice Wetterlund comment on her experiences on Silicon Valley, we are disappointed to learn of her concerns. HBO and the producers have always taken very seriously our responsibility to create a welcoming and congenial environment for everyone who works on the show.”
This is, of course, just the latest in a string of bad publicity for Miller.
In December, Miller was accused of sexually assaulting and punching one of his former college classmates. Miller and his wife denied the accusations -- which were corroborated by multiple sources -- accusing the anonymous woman of "using the current climate to bandwagon and launch these false accusations again".
A year earlier, in December 2016, he was arrested for allegedly slapping an Uber driver, which he also denied. After claiming the driver's allegations were all part of a big plot to "to try and extort money" from him, he settled the case for an undisclosed sum.
TJ Miller will be performing at Sydney's Just For Laughs Festival on November 25!!! Bye!
