“Silicon Valley” Star Accused Of Transgender Abuse, Sexual Assault

"Never contact me again you weird, strange, terrible man," T.J. Miller allegedly wrote in an email to a trans woman.

One day after two women came forward with sexual-misconduct allegations against T.J. Miller, transgender film critic Danielle Solzman released an abusive email that she claims was previously sent to her by the comic.

Solzman actually tweeted a screenshot of the email last September with the sender’s name redacted, but confirmed this week that it was Miller after he was accused of separate allegations, including sexually assaulting and punching a woman.

The critic said that Miller was supportive when she came out as transgender in 2015, but claims he sent the angry email after she asked him to remove a joke about “tranny dumpster sex” on his personal website.

In his alleged response, Miller repeatedly calls Solzman “Daniel,” writing, “You’re not a transgender, you’re not a tranny—your [sic] a fucking asshole, Daniel.”

“You have merely confirmed what I always knew,” Miller wrote. “This pursuit of transgender identity is nothing more than an opportunity for you to distinguish yourself as someone who is special, but what is really special is how retarded it is that you would ever think to attack me or say that I’ve been offensive.”

“Never contact me again you weird, strange, terrible man,” the email continued. “If you were bothered to look into anything that I’ve ever done you would find not only have I had sex with transgender people, but I have donated widely to organizations that support their freedom. They, like every other human being, is consistently persecuted, meant to feel lonely and attacked for their offenses to nature.”

A representative for Miller who asked to not be named told HuffPost that his client was “admittedly going through some things” at the time of the email, but insists he’s not transphobic.
