'Silicon Valley' Co-Stars Harassed By Donald Trump Supporters At Bar

'Silicon Valley' stars Kumail Nanjiani and Thomas Middleditch say they were harassed by Donald Trump supporters and insulted with names at a bar in Los Angeles on Friday night.

"Was at a bar last night with Middleditch. At the end of the night, two white dudes, 20s, who'd been there for hours came up to us," details Nanjiani on social media.

"We're big fans of you guys. To Thomas, 'I trolled you yesterday'. He goes on to say how we're wrong about Trump."

"I go 'Hey we don't wanna discuss politics right now.' His friends goes 'Oh, they're cucks.' Then starts yelling at us. 'CUCKS CUCKS CUCKS!'"

"Cuck," short for "cuckservative," refers to someone "who is weak and has bought into the key premises of the left."

"He starts getting in my face. Thomas puts his hand on the dude's chest to stop him and he says 'Don't touch me, you cuck. Wanna go outside?'"

"At this point, the bouncer runs over, grabs them, kicks them out. The bartender is awesome and apologetic. Thomas and I are stunned."

"This happened at a bar in LA surrounded by people. I can't imagine what it must be like to be someone who looks like me in other parts," he says. "We can't let hate/racism/bigotry/sexism be normalized. If something happens, be safe, but let it be known we won't stand for this."

"Many ppl are like 'just cuz I voted for Trump doesn't mean I'm racist/sexist.' Ok, but at best, you ignored it, you overlooked it."

"Yes!," Middleditch adds. "Either you agreed with the sketchy rhetoric or you turned a blind eye to it. Bad news either way."

"We thought Internet would give us access to ppl with different points of view," sums up Nanjiani. "Instead it gives us access to many people with the same point of view."
