“They weaponize their gender identity”: Ezra Miller Accused of Using the ‘Gender-Card’ to Defend Heinous Crimes, Hurls Transphobic Nazi Slurs at Victims

Ezra Miller

Ezra Miller’s recent troubles have put them in a difficult spot of having to overcome the past allegations that have not only become a nuisance for the non-binary actor but Warner Bros. as well. In an off-the-rails run at chaos, the past two years have completely redefined Ezra Miller’s position in the industry from a bright and talented emerging star to a caricature of the most eccentric sort. As WB and Miller’s representative gather around to find a way out of this conundrum, more conflicting statements come to light.

Ezra Miller Accused of Using Gender-Politics to Hurl Slurs

Ezra Miller is certainly one of the brightest stars in Hollywood, having transgressed gender identities and being hailed as a queer icon. They were lauded on multiple occasions for being scarily honest in an industry that’s built on morsels of scripted narratives, even off-screen. However, Miller’s downward spiral hit them hard and sent them down a path of regrettable and questionable misconduct. So much so that the actor began using his gender identity as a weapon to dismantle and scare into submission any person against whom they happened to pick a fight.

Sara Jumping Eagle, the mother of Tokata Iron Eyes (who goes by Gibson), had claimed in the past — “If somebody pisses off Ezra, they’re transphobic or a transphobic Nazi. Because we’re trying to protect our daughter and we’re trying to point out what Ezra’s done to harm our daughter, now we’re ‘transphobic.’” This sticks true when one examines a pattern of similar slurs being thrown at people whenever Miller is placed in an uncomfortable spot.

A Berlin incident in February 2022 reflected the same pattern when a woman, Nadia, had felt increasingly uncomfortable and unsafe with Miller’s presence at her flat. She spoke to Variety saying, “I asked them to leave about 20 times, maybe more. They started insulting me. I’m a “transphobic piece of sh*t.” I’m a “Nazi.” It became so, so stressful for me.” Past acquaintances of Ezra Miller had pointed out the manipulative streak in the actor saying it allowed them to be “even sh*ttier to others” and that they had a habit of “weaponizing their gender identity in certain situations.”

Ezra Miller’s Representative Denies Past Allegations

Scott Metzger, Miller’s rep, has recently disclosed his side of the story in an interview with Vanity Fair. He has instinctively and carefully dismantled every major allegation made against the Fantastic Beasts actor by providing either sound justification or a counter-argument that could explain the erratic behavior that at the time wouldn’t have made any sense. However, despite Metzger’s careful reconstruction of Ezra Miller’s reputation, the explanations only work to patch up holes at the bottom of a sinking ship.

The Scot Metzger analogies also come at a time when the actor has relatively calmed down from his flurry of outrageous and violent activities. Warner Bros. in their last-ditch attempt to save their $200 million movie, The Flash, has also been known to work with Crisis PR to handle the Ezra Miller formal apology that was issued via Variety on August 15, 2022. Even though all of this comes off as too little, too late, the still-young actor has a long way to go and the path to reparation and redemption is never too late to start on.
