So T.J. Miller, top 3 character from “Silicon Valley” and star of “Office Christmas Party,” was arrested this morning on a battery charge. Okay, then.
According to reports, Miller slapped his Uber driver during a dispute over DONALD TRUMP. This story is truly all of us in 2016. As someone who was confronted by a groom on his wedding night for saying positive things about Gary Johnson, I believe it. I’m just hoping we get some details as to how Trump even came up. We don’t have Uber in Austin anymore, because we’re super progressive and stuff, but I can remember numerous rides in which my knockoff rideshare app driver wanted to discuss hot button topics. If I had to guess, Miller just wanted to stare down at his phone and blow up his group text in peace, and this Uber driver kept forcing the conversation. We’ll see what happens.
Miller is set to host the Critics’ Choice Awards in a few days, which I had no clue still existed, but now I’ll probably watch for the opening monologue. I’m a sucker for jokes..
