Actor T.J. Miller busted by FBI for calling in fake bomb threat

No, that wasn’t his “Ready Player One” quasi-villain alter ego i-R0k — T.J. Miller really was busted this week for phoning in a fake bomb threat on an Amtrak train last month.  The former “Silicon Valley” star, 36, was arrested by the FBI Monday night at LaGuardia Airport for calling 911 on March 18 and reporting that a female passenger had “a bomb in her bag” — which she did not The bizarre bust is just the latest flare-up for Miller, a comedian who’s made a career out of his off-kilter and off-color brand of humor.  In 2016, Miller let his road rage get the best of him when he was arrested for drunkenly slapping his Uber driver on his way home from a GQ party in Los Angeles.  In 2017, Miller abruptly left the HBO comedy “Silicon Valley,” and gave an interview to The Hollywood Reporter ripping executive producer Alec Berg.  “I don’t know how smart [Berg] is. He went to Harvard, and we all know those kids are f — king idiots,” he said. “That Crimson trash. Those comedy writers in Hollywood are f — king Harvard graduates and that’s why they’re smug as a bug.”  And that same year, a college girlfriend accused Miller of choking and punching her.  The anonymous woman told the Daily Beast that during her 2001 relationship with the star, he assaulted her multiple times, including one incident in which he allegedly violently shook her and punched her in the mouth while they were having consensual sex.  Miller and his wifeKatedenied any wrongdoing in a statement, and accused the victim of hopping on the #MeToo bandwagon to spread her “false accusations.”  DESPACITO DISAPPEARS  Music videos for “Despacito” and a wave of other popular songs were hacked on YouTube, with the online perpetrators altering song titles and images while wreaking other havoc.  The video for “Despacito” — which, at over 5 billion views, is the most-watched upload in YouTube history — was briefly deleted from YouTube, but only after someone changed the lead photo for theLuis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee hit to a picture of hooded figurines pointing guns at the camera. …
