‘Silicon Valley’ Star Arrrested After Fight About Donald Trump
Comedian and actor T.J. Miller was arrested early Friday morning after getting into an argument with an Uber driver about Donald Trump during which he allegedly slapped the driver.
Miller was leaving the GQ Men of the Year party at the Chateau Marmont in an Uber when the argument reportedly broke out about the president-elect. The driver claimed the “Silicon Valley” star slapped him in the head when they arrived at his house, TMZ reports.
The Uber driver then decided to call the police and put Miller under a citizen’s arrest. The LAPD responded to the call and took Miller into custody shortly after 1 a.m., according to Page Six.
Miller was later released after posting $20,000 in bail, according to the LAPD.
Miller might have been celebrating a bit too early for his new movie “Office Christmas Party,” which opens in theaters Friday.
No word on what prompted the argument about Trump in the first place, but it’s no secret Miller is not a big fan of the president-elect.
Let’s stop this nonsense. Trump is a madman. He’s a lunatic. He’ll ruin us globally. Let’s fuck him up in November.https://t.co/cqDuWwaI6k

This isn’t the first time “Silicon Valley” stars have caused an argument about Donald Trump. Several days after Trump won the presidential election Miller’s co-stars Kumail Nanjiani and Thomas Middleditch got into it with some Trump supporters at a bar.
It seems that Miller is the one carrying on the nonsense now.
