Remaining a thorn in the side for Warner Bros., Ezra Miller has been party to a long list of charges and allegations. The actor’s first appearance as Flash was in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and then in the controversial Justice League.
Despite the success of Zack Snyder’s Justice League, the studio has moved on to different projects and is relying on The Flash and Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam to expand the DCEU. But Ezra Miller’s antics might throw a monkey wrench into the studio’s plans.
Ezra Miller’s history of allegations and charges
While their probable butting heads with the Ku Klux Klan and harassing people at a karaoke bar are concerning, some of their allegations and charges are far more egregious. The actor was charged with second-degree assault in April for throwing a chair at a woman, giving her a half-inch cut.
In June, according to court documents from Standing Rock Sioux Tribal Court, Ezra Miller was allegedly grooming a girl (she/they) whose name is Gibson and showed “cult-like and psychologically manipulative, controlling behavior.”
A temporary restraining order was filed against Ezra Miller in March after he apparently “burst into the bedroom of the petitioner(s) and threatened” the resident. They were also accused of stealing many important belongings of the petitioner such as a social security card, passport, and bank cards.
How did Miller evade all of the charges?
Despite the overwhelming number of cases stacked against the actor, they seem to have evaded many of the charges. Credited to good lawyers and luck, it seems like most of the victims were paid off. For example, in the case of the Karaoke Bar altercation, they paid a mere $500 fine and were scot-free.
It’s actually insane how easy it is to just get away with this if you’re a celebrity/ have the money

They were also accused of choking a woman in Iceland, who later confirmed it was just a friendly interaction. Also in the case of breaking and entering, the couple dropped the case, and the restraining order was also dismissed.
apparently when you have money you can just do whatever you want and get away with it by just paying off the victims and making them sign ndas

Furthermore, in the case of the actor grooming a minor, she issued a statement discarding her parent’s allegations and stated Ezra Miller “has only provided loving support and invaluable protection.” The parents doubted the validity of the statement as they don’t own a phone.
The fact that Ezra Miller was going around attacking people & breaking laws FOR YEARS with no consequences except the public condemning their actions & nothing happened until they sought out treatment is peak white privilege.
Compare this to what happened after Will Smith's slap https://t.co/hQ52ScCFtN

It is rather odd that one person can evade so many charges and allegations in one year, and this isn’t lost on the fans. Many believe this is possible because of their status as a celebrity, their bank balance, or just because they’re white.
