Justice League star Ezra Miller is at the center of a media storm as a video has emerged online where he appears to throttle a female fan.
Best known for his roles in Warner Bros.’ Fantastic Beasts movies and as Barry Allen, aka the Flash, in the DC films, the 27-year-old is one of Hollywood A-listers and was due to start pre-production on The Flash before coronavirus shut down the movie.
The fan-shot video quickly began to spread online, showing an altercation between Miller and an unknown woman. In the short clip, the woman heads toward Miller in a playful fashion and seemingly jokes about having a fight. Miller responds by saying, “Oh, you wanna fight? That’s what you wanna do?” and grabs her by the throat. Miller then pushes the woman to the floor with his hands around her throat as the cameraman can be heard saying, “Woah, bro. Bro.”
The clip reportedly surfaced on Reddit over the weekend, and apparently comes from the streets of Reykjavik. It’s important to note there currently isn’t any context to the video, and neither side has come forward to shed any light on the situation. That said, the video has already blown up online, leading to Miller’s name and #ezramillerisoverparty to trend on Twitter. While some have called for the young actor to be canceled, others have implored fans to wait for Miller to respond and explain what was really going on in the video.
