A shocking video has emerged showing Ezra Miller choke a female fan and throw her body to the ground.
The actor (who uses they/them pronouns) can be seen approaching the young woman and saying “did you want to fight? That’s what you wanna do?”. They clasp a hand around her throat, push her against the back of a truck, before pulling her to the ground and standing over her.
The short clip is below.
Again, a word of warning, it is confronting and may be triggering to some.

It has been alleged by some that the female fan approached Miller jokingly asking for a fight after spotting them in Iceland. And while, initially, the video seems to be a harmless joke – the woman is smiling and casually swinging her arms – after Miller throws her to the ground, the person recording the video (the fan’s brother, it’s claimed) sounds concerned and rushes over to her.
Beyond the 14 seconds, it is unclear when the video was taken or what happened afterwards. But some users have accused Miller of spitting on the fan, the fan’s brother, and a third person (a bartender or the brother’s friend) who intervened.
But the lack of context hasn’t stopped fans and Twitter users criticising Miller’s actions.
Im sorry but it’s totally not okay for Ezra Miller to do what he did, she literally could’ve seriously harmed that girl…legit how can you do that to your own fan and then spit on people after…I’m sorry but you cannot justify his behaviour I don’t want to hear it

Ezra Miller had no right to choke that girl and then spit on the camera crew what the fuck is wrong with y’all taking up for them?? Even if it was a joke, it’s tone deaf and that seems to be a recurring theme of their’s. I guess it’s okay to be abusive if you’re a DCEU actor 🤷🏿♂️ pic.twitter.com/zFQNDxautQ

Actor Diego Tinoco, who plays Cesar Diaz in Netflix drama On My Block, has criticised Miller for the “insanely inhuman” treatment.
Dam.. insanely inhuman to disrespect and a harm a fan like that. Don’t know the whole backstory but I don’t think I have to. People get so clouded up in their heads with vanity they think they can do whatever they want to whoever they want. Fuck Ezra Miller

Miller was set to star in an upcoming DCEU film revolving around the character Barry Allen, The Flash. Many have called for the role to be recast.

Damn Ezra Miller, you just lost your acting career and about to get fired as the flash. That’s another year that the flash movie is going to get delayed.

Miller, or a representative, is yet to make comment on the incident. But something must be said, this can’t go unacknowledged.
