“Silicon Valley”actress Alice Wetterlund calls TJ Miller a “bully”, says the male co-stars turned on him.”
Comedian and actress Alice Wetterlund blasted the cast and crew of “Silicon Valley” for allegedly turning of troubled former star TJ Miller’s boorish behavior on and off the set of the HBO hit.
“Yes! It is definitely time to rehabilitate TJ Miller’s career,” Wetterlund, 37, tweeted sarcastically on Tuesday. “We can’t afford to lose talent in a time like this, we need more — not less — comedic hijinks, such as *checks notes* calling in a fake bomb threat.”
Wetterlund referred to March an incident in which an allegedly drunken Miller, 37, allegedly made a fake 911 call on an Amtrak train, causing hours of delay. He was charged with willful transportation of law enforcement false information about an explosive device on a train, and it can have a maximum of five years behind bars if convicted. He was released on $ 100,000 bail and is currently awaiting trial.
Wetterlund also claimed he was a nightmare on the set and that no one else, least of all Miller’s male co-stars, did nothing to stop it.
She replied to a follower and fan of the series, “I hope I don’t ruin it for you, but TJ Miller was a bully and petulant brat, and pretty much anyone who had a force that (almost all men) set, including the male members of the cast, it drew him in and were complicit to his unprofessionalism. They can f k off forever.”
“I’m pretty open about it, and I don’t know if other women on the show had a different experience than me, but it was a kind of nightmare,” she added, explaining that she remained on the show because she had to work and do not realize that not all tv shows have allegedly “toxic and strange” environment.
Wetterlund not in detail, Miller’s alleged on-set bullying for its output, but in the past, show insiders have claimed that he was “dangerous” and “explosive”.
A rep for HBO told Page Six in a statement, “And this is the first time that we have heard Alice Wetterlund comments about her experiences on the ‘Silicon Valley’ we are disappointed to learn of its problems. HBO and the producers have always taken very seriously our responsibility to create a welcoming and cosy environment for everyone who works on the show.”
Wetterlund, the accusations are the latest in a string of negative news about Miller.
In December 2017, the “Emoji Movie” star, who went under the knife in 2010 for the treatment of a brain disorder, denied an accusation of sexual assault of a George Washington University classmate.
A year earlier, Miller was arrested for allegedly slapping an Uber driver. He denied the allegations and later settled with the alleged victim for an undisclosed amount.
