Newswire: Two Silicon Valley stars got harassed in meat space last night
Silicon Valley stars Kumail Nanjiani and Thomas Middleditch are, presumably, no strangers to people harassing them online. (Even if their show wasn’t about technology, their mere existence as famous people on the internet would more or less guarantee it.) Today, though, both comics shared a story of getting harassed in the actual, physical world last night, jumping on Twitter to relate an altercation in which a couple of Trump supporters loudly declared them “cucks” at a Los Angeles bar, before attempting to initiate a physical fight.
Was at a bar last night with @Middleditch. At the end of the night, 2 white dudes, 20’s, who’d been there for hours came up to us.

“We’re big fans of you guys. (To Thomas) I trolled you on twitter yesterday.” He goes on to say how we’re wrong about Trump.
