Alice Wetterlund, who played Carla Walton in six episodes of “Silicon Valley,” took to Twitter on Wednesday to accuse her former castmates of enabling star T.J. Miller’s inappropriate behavior on set.
In a thread disclosing her experience working on the show, Wetterlund criticized Miller for his “unprofessionalism.” She also called out the show’s other actors, who she called “complicit” in his actions. “TJ Miller was a bully and a 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 wrote. “They can f— off forever.”
Thank you! 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. They can fuck off forever. https://t.co/YxGHiSYMrJ

Yes! It is 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

An HBO spokesperson issued a statement Wednesday 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.”
