Miles Teller slammed by fans as he gets Covid & shuts down The Godfather spinoff series after he 'refuses vaccine'
MILES Teller was slammed by fans after he was accused of "bringing Covid" to the set of The Godfather spinoff series The Offer.
A new report Friday claimed the 34-year-old actor "refused the vaccine" and then got sick with the virus, forcing production to shut down.
An insider told Daily Mail: "Miles Teller is not vaccinated. He wouldn't even get the test.
"Now he's brought the virus to the set and the whole set had to shut down."
According to a studio spokesperson, production was shut down on July 28 due to a production member getting Covid.
A source close to the executive team confirmed to the publication that the sick person was Miles.
Fans swarmed Miles' latest tweet to leave angry comments about the claims.
The Whiplash star had posted a photo of himself relaxing on his couch with his French bulldog on his lap.

One person commented under the snap: "They should never have allowed you on the set, it's as much their fault as it is yours, but it is still definitely your fault."
"Why aren't you out there spreading your Covid because "freedom?" another person chimed in.
"Get the vaccine. I didn’t want it but I got it for the people I love," came another post.
In response to the claims, Miles' publicist, Lauren Hozempa, told the the outlet: "Your facts are incorrect."
Filming has since resumed on the project, which is a series about the making of the iconic 1972 movie The Godfather.
Some of the shoot is taking place at a complex of luxury apartments in Hollywood, with Paramount reportedly posting a letter ensuring that “all crew members have been tested for Covid and have received negative results.
"A Covid compliance monitor will remain onsite throughout periodically checking crew member temperatures and enforcing social distancing."
Also starring is Giovanni Ribisi, Collin Hanks, Matthew Goode, Juno Temple, and Dan Fogler.
The Offer dramatizes two-time Oscar-winning producer Al Ruddy's experience making the movie.
Miles took over the role of Ruddy from Armie Hammer earlier this year amid the star's explicit text controversy and sexual assault accusations.
Miles, who is married to model Keleigh Sperry, 28, has previously said that he doesn't care about public opinion of him.
Speaking to Page Six back in 2017, he said: "But I can’t put much weight into whether the public likes me because the more important thing is that, as an actor, I can truly say that there’s not a single director or actor who I’ve worked with who’d have a bad thing to say about me.
"I’ve never missed a day of work. I’ve never not known a line. So I feel good about where I am."
