Last Friday, it was reported that Top Gun: Maverick star Miles Teller had been assaulted while on vacation in Hawaii with TMZ reporting that the actor had been punched in the face by a man who confronted him in the restroom.
Pat McAffe saw the report, so he shared a clip featuring a joke about the incident on WWE SmackDown on Twitter writing “WOW Miles Teller didn’t even eat a shot that hard”. Miles saw that joke and did not like it.
Teller, who was reportedly on vacation in Maui with his wife Keleigh Sperry as well as his Divergent co-Star Shailene Woodley and her fiance, NFL quarterback Aaron Rodgers, at the time of the incident, replied to McAffe’s tweet.
“I got jumped by two guys in a bathroom,” Teller wrote. “Never met them before in my life but ya cool wrestling segue bud.”
Fast forward to Tuesday’s edition of his show and McAfee s clearing up what exactly happened when he made a joke about the situation.
According to TMZ, Teller was assaulted while at Monkeypod Kitchen on Maui, which was reportedly a dispute that Teller owed money for his 2019 wedding in Maui.
“The story reported about Miles being punched in the face by @TMZ over ‘money’ is completely false,” Sperry wrote. “Miles was jumped by 2 men we have never met after they trapped him in a bathroom.”
Here’s that video of the altercation:
