TW: Grooming, assault, mental health issues

Ezra Miller (who uses they/them pronouns currently) is a 29 year old famous actor known for roles like The Flash from The Flash, Patrick from Perks Of Being A Wallflower, and Kevin from We Need To Talk About Kevin. They’ve been in the spotlight since 2008 with their opening role of Robert from Afterschool. But Ezra’s acting skills aren’t aren’t why they’ve been in the news recently. Let’s get into that.

It all started when Ezra was recorded “jokingly” choking a fan in 2020. Since then the video went viral and had people very upset. Nothing came out of the incident (at the time) and things slowed down for Ezra for a while. Then in 2022 they’re arrested in Hawaii and charged with disorderly conduct and harassment following a physical confrontation with people at a karaoke bar where they started yelling obscenities at them and grabbed a microphone from a woman singing karaoke. Ezra later lunged at a man playing darts, according to police. Bail was posted by a couple that Ezra lived with at the time.

Days later, said couple living with Ezra filed a restraining order asking them to not contact the couple at all. Apparently following the incident in Hawaii, Ezra came home and threatened the couple's lives. Allegedly, Miller stole the wife’s passport and the husband’s wallet, which contains his credit cards, social-security card, and driver’s license. It’s unclear whether the items were returned. The judge grants the couple the restraining order the following day. Multiple projects Ezra was working on went on pause after these incidents.

Three weeks after their March arrest, the actor was again taken into custody in Hawaii for allegedly throwing a chair which hit a woman at a private party, leaving the 26-year-old woman with a half-inch cut on her forehead. After they were released from custody, Miller continues to harass Hawaii by stealing producer Oliver Ignatious and rapper Ghais Guevara's music and posting it without giving them credit. Moving on to more current events.

The parents of 18-year-old activist Gibson Iron Eyes accuse Miller of grooming their child. In court documents, Gibson’s parents allege that Miller has been involved with their child since they were 12. A judge signed the request for a protective order, which says Miller cannot contact the child or be within 100 yards of their residence. Back in 2017, Ezra flew Gibson out to the set of Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them when they were 14 and Ezra was 25. Sources say that Ezra attempted to sleep in the same bed as them and provided them with a multitude of drugs and alcohol. Since then they’ve been seen traveling together many times. They even went on the run together.

Miller has had another harassment prevention order after harassing and threatening a 12 year old on multiple separate occasions. Currently Ezra has been charged with felony burglary and is accused of housing a mother and her three children to help her evade an emergency care order trying to take her children away.

Just a few days ago Ezra made a statement claiming they understand the distress they caused people with their actions and that they’re currently trying to get help for their mental health issues.How true that is is still unclear.

A reminder that while Ezra should not be put down for their mental health issues, they should also not be glorified. Their actions have hurt a lot of people. Thank you for listening!
