Ezra Miller: ‘chokehold’ accuser breaks silence as another woman claims ‘harassment’

Variety reports accusations against actor of attack in Iceland in 2020 and incident in Berlin this year

Two women who allege threatening behaviour by Ezra Miller have spoken out against the actor.

One woman, who was the victim of a choking attack by Miller outside a bar in Iceland in 2020 has broken her silence on the incident, telling Variety: “I think, ‘It’s just fun and games’ – but then it wasn’t. All of a sudden, [they’re] on top of me, choking me, still screaming in my face if I want to fight.”

She said the actor (who is non-binary and uses they/them pronouns) put her in a chokehold before throwing her to the ground. The woman blamed Miller’s friends rather than the actor personally for escalating the altercation.

She added that Miller spat in her friend’s face “multiple times” during the incident, which was at the start of the pandemic.

Earlier this year, Miller was arrested for disorderly conduct and harassment at a karaoke bar in Hawaii and has since been accused of inappropriate behaviour around minors, with a restraining order taken out against the actor last month.

Also speaking to Variety was another woman, who accused the actor of harassing her and “seemingly” attempting to break down her apartment door in Berlin earlier this year, according to the report.

“I did not feel safe,” she said, recalling how Miller refused to leave her apartment after the woman said they couldn’t smoke inside. They called her a “Nazi” and “a transphobic piece of shit”, and eventually left after she had called the police.

Rolling Stone last week reported that the actor was accused of housing a 25-year-old mother and her three young children at a 39-hectare Vermont farm in an unsafe condition amid cannabis, firearms and ammunition.

Miller has declined to comment on the allegations published in Variety.
