A former video of Ezra Miller choking a woman has gone viral
Following Ezra Miller’s arrest on Monday, revelations of their previous inappropriate behavior became a topic of conversation among their fans. A video featuring Miller’s alleged attack on a woman was circulated during fan campaigns for the “Snyder-cut version of Justice League” in 2020.
A video of Miller attacking the lady went viral in early April. “Did you want to fight?” the New Jersey native asked the woman in the 5-second video. Following their question, Miller reached out and grabbed the mystery woman’s neck, slamming her into the back of a cart and dragging her to the ground.
Bystanders filming the incident can be heard approaching Miller. The woman collapsed to the ground after verbally expressing her discomfort and agony. “Whoa, Bro, Bro, Bro,” a man can be heard saying, implying that the actor should stop.
This incident appears to have happened on April 1, 2020, at the Priki Kaffihs bar in Reykjavik, Iceland, according to a later report by Variety. The actor was said to have been approached by several admirers at the moment. But took exception to one of them and shoved her to the ground. Miller was taken off the grounds of the bar after the controversial event.
After the arrest, Ezra Miller’s choking video has been trending online
Several tweets criticized Miller after his detention, comparing the new incident to the previous assault.
One user said, Even though this isn’t the first time Ezra miller has assaulted a woman, they won’t be as outraged as Will Smith.
Another said, it still amazes me that Ezra Miller got away with choke slamming a teen girl in the first place.
still kind of surreal to me that Ezra Miller got away with choke slamming a teenage girl in the first place

According to a third user, Ezra Miller was also tossed out of a bar in Iceland in April 2020. He proceeded to choke a woman. It’s probable that Miller and alcohol don’t mix well; those appear to be the common denominators in both incidents.
Another person said, “At least Ezra Miller didn’t choke anyone this time.”
At least this time Ezra Miller didn’t choke anyone.

Others, meanwhile, drew parallels to Warner Bros. allegedly “turning a blind eye” to Miller. While dismissing Johnny Depp from the Fantastic Beasts franchise due to claims.
Miller made a public threat to the Klan activity in Beulaville on Instagram in January of this year. The 29-year-old actor went so far as to recommend that members of the KKK in North Carolina commit suicide.
The Southern Poverty Law Center, however, stated at the time that there had been no public reports of any KKK activities in the area.
White people: WILL SMITH NEEDS TO BE ARRESTED!!
Also white people: Ezra Miller needs help with mental issues. He didn’t mean to choke slam that girl last time and attack people this time…. pic.twitter.com/PxMOH9GJIK
