“Office Christmas Party” star T.J. Miller hints that he won’t be dodging conversation about his recent run-in with the law while hosting Sunday night’s Critic’s Choice Awards.
“Tonight I will address the elephant in the room at @CriticsChoice on A&E. Tune in and find out,” he tweeted just hours before he was set to go on stage.
The aforementioned “elephant” is his arrest on Friday morning. According to TMZ, Miller attended the GQ Man of the Year party and afterwards he and an Uber driver had an altercation about Donald Trump.

The driver claimed that the “Deadpool” actor slapped him. The driver didn’t have any visible injuries, the site reported.
Miller has been critical of Trump, even trying to burn a Trump tie on “Conan.” He tweeted during the presidential election, “Trump is a madman. He’s a lunatic. He’ll ruin us globally. Let’s f— him up in November.”
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
