TJ Miller said last May that he wouldn’t be returning to Silicon Valley and now Alice Wetterlund who played Carla Walton in seasons 2 and 3 has tweeted saying that TJ Miller was a ‘petulant brat’ and that the male members of the production team enabled his behaviour.

Miller was accused of sexual misconduct and harassment and in April of this year he was arrested on federal charges which accused him of calling in a fake bomb threat on a train.

Wetterlund went on to explain that working on the show was ‘a nightmare’ and that she continued on the show because she needed the job.
