Ezra Miller, who’s set to play the lead role of Barry Alan in DC Comic’s film version of The Flash, started trending on Twitter Sunday night after a video that appeared to show him choking a fan went viral.
In the video, a person who appears to be the 27-year-old actor is approached by a female who seems to play fight with him after spotting the superhero star in a store. While man says, “Oh, you wanna fight? That’s what you wanna do?” he grabs the female by the neck and pushes her into the back wall of a truck parked in the aisle.
The girl in the video appears to have a smile on her face while she’s being choked, which led viewers to believe her interaction with the person assumed to be The Perks of Being a Wallflowerstar was all in good fun. This viral clip could very well all be humorous, and it’s yet to be confirmed that it is Miller in the video.
However, when the guy in the video appears to drag the girl to the ground, the person filming says, with what sounds like a genuine concern in his voice, “Woah, bro. Bro,” before the video comes to an abrupt end.
It’s hard to say exactly what type of situation this was between the person who looks like Miller and the fan. There are only 14 seconds of video being shared online. It’s unknown whether they both burst out laughing afterward, or if the girl ran away, completely unexpecting the guy’s physical response. While the man does not body slam her to the ground, without knowing what happened next, it’s hard to make a definitive opinion on the context of the video.
