DC Comics’ “The Flash” drops this summer, and as a side, it does not look very good at all. Unfortunately for DC, the movie’s star, Ezra Miller, who is non-binary, has been shrouded in horrific controversies that threaten to tank his $200 million movie.

Yes, for truth’s sake and the sake of clarity, I’ll be referring to Ezra using he/him pronouns.

Most of the mainstream media has capitulated to gender madness, referring to the 30-year-old actor with they/them pronouns, which makes reading about him ridiculously hard. “They’re one of Hollywood’s brightest stars—and most troubled actors,” reads Vanity Fair, for example. “They,” by definition, refers to “two or more people or things.” So most normal people read that and assume Vanity Fair is referring to at least two actors. But no, they are referring to just one: Ezra Miller. But anyway, I digress.

Mr. Miller is unwell, and even the truth-allergic media knows it. One need only look at the man to infer that something has gone wrong. Seriously wrong.

My apologies in advance.

“Are you okay,” asked one person.

No, Ezra Miller is not okay. Far from it. His freakish red-carpet appearances are only surpassed by his freakish off-carpet antics.

“Ezra Miller did not, to put it mildly, invoke their right to remain silent,” relayed Vanity Fair. “This past March, the actor was arrested in a tiki bar called Margarita Village in Hilo, Hawaii, after shouting profanities, spitting in a patron’s face, and grabbing a microphone from a woman singing karaoke to “Shallow” from A Star Is Born. Miller claimed to have been accosted by a Nazi and to have evidence. In fact, one of the first things you hear the actor say in the three-minute police body-cam video that circulated after the arrest is something the officers had likely never heard from a disorderly dive bar patron before: “I film myself when I get assaulted for NFT crypto art.”

He then railed against fellow bar patrons, referring to himself as a savior and the devil.

That in and of itself would be enough to keep all of Hollywood talking about the eccentric Ezra Miller (and maybe that’s the point). But we’re just getting started. The weird incident at Margarita Village was merely the weird cherry on top of a long history of weird incidents.

Here’s a list of the actor’s recent controversies, as outlined by People Magazine:

In April 2020, the “Fantastic Beasts” star was reportedly seen choking a woman in “a serious altercation” outside a bar.

In January 2022, he posted an enigmatic video message to the Ku Klux Klan. “Look,” he said in the video, “if y’all want to die, I suggest just killing yourselves with your own guns. OK? Otherwise, keep doing exactly what you’re doing right now — and you know what I am talking about — then, you know, we’ll do it for you, if that’s really what you want. Talk to you soon, OK. Bye.”

Two months later, he had a restraining order filed against him.

Then, in April, he was arrested for second-degree assault after throwing a chair at a woman in Hawaii.

One month after that, Miller was accused by parents of grooming their daughter, using “cult-like and psychologically manipulative, controlling behavior.” Another parent alleged that she and her child had been granted a temporary harassment prevention order against the actor, at which point his Instagram account was abruptly deleted. 

Shortly thereafter, Vermont State Police revealed that they had “probable cause” to charge Miller with felony burglary. In the same month, the police issued an emergency care order in an attempt to protect three kids who were reportedly being housed, with their mother, at Miller’s unsafe home. When Miller announced the kids had left, the police expressed concern that the star was “shielding their whereabouts.

Incredibly, this is only the tip of the iceberg. I have not even mentioned allegations of Miller forming a sex cult. Or that he lived in a commune where “everyone was hypnotized.” There’s simply too much to cover.

Is it any surprise that the actor who wore skulls on a necklace to a movie premiere and painted eyes on his face is—best case scenario—wildly and inappropriately eccentric? And yet he has a huge tentpole film out next week, and Warner Bros., the producers, seem totally oblivious to the somewhat concerning fact that their star is sending messages to the KKK. And might be a groomer.

As one writer opined, “accusations of violent outbursts, cult-like activity, and years of strategically grooming underage fans point to much deeper problems — problems that likely won’t be curbed by handing them a major starring role in a massive franchise.”

Unfortunately, that’s exactly what DC Comics and Warner Bros. have done. And with $200 million on the line, you can bet they won’t say a word.
