Seth Green claims Bill Murray dangled him “over a trash can” on the ‘SNL’ set

Another actor accuses Bill Murray of acting like trash on set.

During an appearance on the popular YouTube show Good Mythical Morning, hosts Rhett McLaughlin and Link Neal asked former child actor Seth Green: “Who is the rudest celebrity you’ve ever met and tell us what’s so bad.” was him?”

Green, 48, said the grumpiest celebrity he’s ever met was Bill Murray, 72. Murray, who was then hosting Saturday Night Live, is said to have thrown Green in a trash can when he was just 9 years old.

“Bill Murray, as everyone knows, is great with children,” Green began the story sarcastically.

Green said he was watching TV with Eddie Murphy, a then “SNL” cast member, when he climbed onto a couch to change the channel.

“He [Murray] saw me sitting on the armrest of that chair and made a fuss about me sitting in his place,” Green recalled.

“And I thought, ‘This is absurd. I’m sitting on the armrest of this couch. There are several lengths of this sofa. Friendly, eff off.’ And he said, ‘This is my chair.’ . . . And then my mom says, ‘You know, ever since he was the Bill Murray, you might want to give him his place.'”

Seth Green said the incident happened when Bill Murray was hosting "Saturday night live" and when Green was 9.

“And I’m going — I’ve never been more outraged when I’m told — ‘Are you such a jerk? You are so rude as to tell a 9 year old to get out of yours. . . What is this power play?’ ‘ Green continued.

The “Lost in Translation” actor apparently didn’t approve of Green’s standing up for himself.

“He picked me up by the ankles. . . He dangled me over a trash can and said, ‘The trash goes in the trash can,'” Green recalled to an audibly vocal “GMM” crew.

“And I was screaming and waving my arms wildly, full contact with his balls. He threw me in the trash can, the trash can falls over. I was horrified. I ran away, hid under the table in my dressing room and just cried.”

Green said after returning to his dressing room, he decided he no longer wanted to appear on the live sketch comedy show, but Murphy and fellow “SNL” colleague Tim Kazurinsky encouraged him to perform.

“They come back and they come into my room and they’re like, ‘Hey, everyone knows Bill’s ad — k, you know? He hosts the show. He’s probably really nervous about it,'” Green said.

“You’re a pro, aren’t you?” he remembered them telling him. “‘The show needs to go on. You’re a pro. You’re a pro, right?’ And I was like, ‘I’m a pro. I’m a pro,'” Green said, mocking his crying younger self.

According to reports, Bill Murray, 72 "hated" the "SNL" 90's cast.

Green said he hasn’t seen Murray since the incident, but he has met Murphy, who will always remember Green as the kid who climbed onto the couch.

“I think it’s important to say that I love Bill Murray’s work and I consider him one of the most important cultural icons we have,” Green said at the end of his story.

“But when I was 9 years old, he was very rude.”

The Post has reached out to Murray’s reps for comment.

On Thursday, during a guest appearance on SiriusXM’s Faction Talk, Rob Schneider claimed that Murray “absolutely hated” the entire class of the ’90s late-night show, including Adam Sandler and Chris Farley.

Earlier this year, Page Six reported that Murray’s “inappropriate behavior” on the set of Aziz Ansari’s “Being Mortal” led to the suspension of production. More details of the complaint emerged Tuesday, which claimed the actor had been “hands-on touchy” with a staff member on the film. Murray is accused of “kissing” and “spreading” her.

And to top it off, Murray’s “Quick Change” co-star Geena Davis also details disturbing first encounters with him in her new memoir, Dying of Politeness. Seth Green claims Bill Murray dangled him “over a trash can” on the ‘SNL’ set
