Fear not, your newest media baddie has arrived!
Some have noticed that T.J. Miller has been acting out as of late; walking away from the acclaimed HBO comedy Silicon Valley and being bizarrely candid about his exit in interviews.
Well, the comedian just made clear what he wants his next role to be: Hollywood’s next great villain!
His first step in achieving such a title? Ignite the fury of the internet by declaring that women aren’t as funny as men!
In a recent interview with Vulture, the 36-year-old threw it down:
“[Women are] taught to suppress their sense of humor during their formative years. Women want to be treated as equals, and we want feminism to be a thing, but it’s really difficult when every woman makes the same point about her vagina, over and over. I think shock value works well for women, but beyond that, there’s no substance. I want to see what else there is with such complex, smart creatures.”
Wow, what a dick thing to say. Is he intentionally trying to piss people off?
Oh wait… he is!
Speaking more on his position, The Emoji Movie star explained:
“It’s more important to be polarizing than neutralizing. That’s my position. ├óΓé¼┬ª People need a villain, and I’m occupying that space.”
Well, he’s doing a great job at fulfilling that role so far. Miller recently made headlines after seemingly bashing Silicon Valley showrunner Alec Berg in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
But according to Teej, it’s all just a plot to stay in the oh-no-he-didn’t news cycle. He explained:
“Nobody right now is publicly the Lindsay Lohan├óΓé¼ΓÇ£train wreck├óΓé¼ΓÇ£but├óΓé¼ΓÇ£not├óΓé¼ΓÇ£quite person. If I’d just said it was an honor to work on Silicon Valley and was thankful to Alec Berg, I would have disappeared. Instead, by being just a little authentic, I infected the news cycle.”
Hmm… sounds like someone’s taking a page from the KarJenner playbook!
At the end of the day, the actor just wants to do his part in giving his audience something to talk about, on and off screen. He concluded:
“My goal is to distract people from the tragedy of the impermanence of everyday life. And I can do that best by oversaturating the market. Statistically, I give people a better chance of laughing if I do film, stand-up, improv, podcasts, TV, advertising than if I just say ├óΓé¼╦£What’s a bigger TV show I can be on?’ I’m not making things for wannabe intellectual hipsters complaining on Reddit. I’m doing The Emoji Movie and Deadpool 2 for people en masse.”
Yup, it won’t be long until he gets his Nobel Prize in Douchebaggery.
