Ezra Miller and the list of controversies

But the most recent one that has many fans asking for their replacement is an altercation in 2022. The actor was handed a temporary order of protection for 18-year-old Tokota Iron Eyes, as they were alleged of used violence, fear, paranoia, and drugs against the teen.
The Flash star asked to leave another movie?
Despite all the controversy, WB seems to be going ahead with the Flash movie. Another film that they’ve been petitioned to be removed from is Daliland. Commenting on the demand, Mary Haron spoke to Vanity Fair on the same, and she confirmed Ezra Miller won’t be cut from the film, stating:
“The film was completely finished and wrapped. It might have been different, especially if we were shooting, if there had been bad behavior during that….. I also felt like everybody shot all those things in good faith. Nothing bad happened during our filming, and the film is the film.”
Despite not addressing the controversy directly, the director did express her views on it. She believes if Ezra Miller did something wrong, they deserve to face justice. She further stated:
“I’m not condoning anything they’ve done wrong. I think it doesn’t matter how talented someone is, if they’ve done anything wrong, they have to face it. I also think that clearly this is not just a young star acting out. This is much more serious. This seems like something that needs a serious intervention, which I hope has happened.”
