SANTA MONICA, California (AP) — The host of the 22nd Critics Choice Awards chose not to discuss his legal troubles and instead focused on President-elect Donald Trump and the controversies surrounding his election, the Los Angeles Times reports.
T.J. Miller, a star of the TV series Silicon Valley, was arrested Dec. 9 after police say he slapped a car service driver on the head after remarks about Trump.
