T.J. Miller is finally responding to Alice Wetterlund, who lat month called out the “toxic” boys club on “Silicon Valley” and the comedian in particular for his allegedly bullying behaviour.
Appearing on the Jim Norton & Sam Roberts show on SiriusXM, Miller denied his former co-star’s accusations, saying that though she may have had that experience on set is was just another example of “people trying to get into headlines.”
“It was not my experience that anyone was bullying her,” Miller said, adding, “I don’t think anybody was bullying her… obviously there was a disconnect, because now she’s saying these things about me and then attacking the mostly all-male cast of ‘Silicon Valley’.”
Miller also talked about receiving generally negative coverage since his departure from “Silicon Valley” last year.
“I guess by force I’m getting better at saying, ‘OK, these are completely untrue things being told about me,” he said. “There are millions of people who absolutely believe these things — but there are hundreds of millions of people who don’t or don’t care or have tuned all of this out because so much of the media is … just all clickbait, anger, mean-spirited stuff.”
“There’s a lot of anger, and people don’t know where to fire,” Miller added.
Wetterlund, who starred in the second and third seasons of the series, took to Twitter on in July to express her anger at Miller continuing to be invited on comedy shows and podcasts.
Responding to a fan of the show, Wetterlund called out the “almost all male” cast and crew for enabling Miller’s bad behaviour.
Wetterlund also responded to a Twitter user who asked why she stayed on the show, explaining that “it wasn’t always toxic and weird.”
Miller left “Silicon Valley” in June 2017. Later that year he faced multiple allegations of sexual misconduct, assault and transphobia.
In April, Miller was arrested and charged with allegedly calling in a false bomb threat on a woman he reportedly had a grudge against.
