Comedy Central Has Cancelled T.J. Miller’s “The Gorburger Show”

December 20, 2017 / Posted by:

Comedy Central’s The Gorburger Show is a fake talk show starring an ego-driven monster puppet named Gorbuger that’s voiced by T.J. Miller. Although now it’s a former fake talk show. The Hollywood Reporter says that Comedy Central has decided to cancel The Gorburger Show after one season, thus putting the ego-driven monster and the ego-driven monster who voices it out of a job. But Comedy Central says the cancellation has nothing to do with the recent allegations against T.J. Miller, of which there are now more.

Comedy Central announced the cancellation yesterday, the same day The Daily Beast published an account from a woman named “Sarah” who accused T.J. Miller of assaulting her physically and sexually while they were dating in college. A rep for CC claims the decision to cancel The Gorburger Show was made before Sarah’s story came out. One source tells THR that there was talk of cancelling the show as far back as July. That would potentially put cancellation talks in the same timeline as T.J. Miller’s smug asshole interview in which he shat on HBO’s Silicon Valley, and T.J. Miller’s even-smugger asshole interview to promote The Emoji Movie.

But back to the allegations. T.J. and his wife Kate Miller responded to Sarah’s story with a long joint statement accusing Sarah of being Ali Larter in Obsessed (aka a jealous evil witch trying to ruin their lives). Either it was Sarah’s story or T.J.’s subsequent denial, but something prompted the gates to open and more stories to flood out. Vulture reports that porn star Dana DeArmond hopped on Twitter yesterday to accuse T.J. Miller and Kong: Skull Island director Jordan Vogt-Roberts of sexually harassing her while shooting T.J.’s former Comedy Central show Mash Up.

A Twitter user named Dalia also came forward yesterday with a story about how she suspected an allegedly drunk and high T.J. Miller drugged her drink at a bar five or six years ago.

T.J.’s alleged shitty behavior might not be limited sexual assault and harassment, either. Vulture says a trans film critic named Danielle Solzman has accused him of sending her an aggressively transphobic email several months ago. Danielle first posted the email with his name redacted, but when the conversation around T.J. grew, she named him.

Danielle claims she emailed T.J. shortly after the release of The Emoji Movie to inform him that an online search for his website turns up a trans slur. T.J. responded by repeatedly referring to Danielle as “Daniel” and calling her a “weird strange terrible man.” T.J. also lashed out at Danielle, saying he couldn’t be transphobic, because he has had sex with trans people and donates money to trans causes.

Neither T.J. nor T.J.’s wife Kate have responded to these most recent allegations. Maybe they’re busy writing up their next long statement calling Dana and Dalia and Danielle jealous liars and haters. I just hope that T.J. doesn’t get the bright idea to recycle some of his thoughts from his alleged email to Danielle. Something tells me “I can’t be transphobic – some of my best fucks have been trans!” isn’t going to pull many people over to his side.
