Recently, T.J. Miller delivered quite a lengthy monologue critiquing his Deadpool co-star Ryan Reynolds on The Adam Carolla Show. The apparent animosity that the latter harbors toward the former, he claimed, finally spilled over on the set of their 2016 Marvel film. The hostility repelled T.J. Miller from considering working on the same movie with the Canadian actor again in the near future. But, in the meantime, the elaborate accusations against Ryan Reynolds have riled up the internet enough to resort to digging up his sordid past and trolling him right back.

T.J. Miller Throws Shade at Deadpool Star, Ryan Reynolds
Ryan Reynolds‘s rise to fame has always been accompanied by an understated career trajectory. With films like Blade: Trinity (2004), X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009), The Proposal (2009), Buried (2010), Green Lantern (2011), and The Captive (2014), Reynolds has clearly established himself within the industry much before becoming Deadpool in 2016. According to T.J. Miller, “after he got super, super famous from the first Deadpool, things kind of changed.”
During his extensive critique, Miller did not attempt to state the cause behind Reynolds’s apparent hatred toward him, merely that “I think it’s weird that he hates me.” The actor mentioned that the animosity became apparent after the pair had a “really weird moment on Deadpool where [Reynolds]… as the character, he was like horrifically mean to me, but to me. As if I’m Weasel.” The effect that the on-set incident had on the Silicon Valley actor led him to reinstate, “No. I would not work with him again.”
Miller additionally went on to claim that the Wrexham FC owner was in reality an “insecure dude” and that “when you cover his face, he’s so quick, he’s so funny.” In his understanding, the on-set incident went past riffing and it was symptomatic of Reynolds’s need to ascertain that he was more popular, funnier, and famous than T.J. Miller was.
Internet Trolls Back T.J. Miller For His Controversial Stance
The actor-comedian was accused of sexual assault in 2017, following which, allegations of on-set abuse and bullying were levied at him in 2018, during his stint on the HBO series, Silicon Valley. Both these accusations were denied by Miller — “I play an a**hole on TV, but I’m not a bully”. His character was later written off from the series.
T.J. Miller also allegedly sent a transphobic email to the film critic Danielle Solzman, who he called a “weird strange terrible man”. The email was made public by Solzman a day after the comedian was accused of sexual misconduct allegations. In April 2018, he was arrested on federal charges while on board an Amtrak train for reportedly making fake bomb threats, but the charges were later dropped, stating the actor’s brain surgery in the past as a cause.

So, he doesn't get jokes, sexually harassed coworkers, and called in a bomb threat and yet he thinks his presence will be missed?
