Hollywood celebrities and their shenanigans have ruled the tabloids since celebrity culture took the world by its bedazzled horns. It comes as no surprise then that one of its talented, up-and-coming actors, Ezra Miller, would land in the middle of such a boiling mess of riot, controversy, and transgressions before even turning 30.

The past couple of years has turned maddening for reasons far beyond the explicable. The pandemic era has unleashed a new level of simmering outrage on the world but some of the madness was born far before isolation drove us to the edge.
Ezra Miller and Tokata Iron Eyes
The DCEU and Harry Potter franchise actor, Ezra Miller, met the Native American activist Tokata Iron Eyes when the latter was 12 years old and the former was 23. Tokata, who goes by Gibson Iron Eyes now, first came to prominence as an environmental activist having protested beside Leonardo DiCaprio and Greta Thunberg.
However, recently, Chase Iron Eyes and Sara Jumping Eagle, parents of Tokata/Gibson, have come forward with allegations that the actor has kidnapped and been brainwashing and grooming their daughter. Consequently, they have also filed for a Protective Order in an attempt to separate their daughter from Miller.
The filing states, “Ezra uses violence, intimidation, the threat of violence, fear, paranoia, delusions, and drugs to hold sway over a young adolescent Tokata.”
However, in a recent series of Instagram posts, the activist has declared:
I am in no way, or under any circumstance have ever been during my short lived adulthood, in need of a conservatorship. My father and his allegations hold no weight and are frankly transphobic and based in the notion that I am somehow incapable of coherent thought or opposing opinions to those of my own kindred worrying about my well-being. I am now aware of the severity of emotional and psychological manipulation I was made to endure while in my parents home.
The parents in response replied that Tokata/Gibson hasn’t had access to the phone and is not in control of her own Instagram account since January 2022. This led to the young activist releasing a 2-minute Instagram video making the following statement:
I’ve become aware that some people are saying that my statements were not written by me. I’d like to clarify that they are. Nobody is controlling my Instagram account. I don’t have a phone right now out of my own personal conviction.
Honestly, it’s really distressing that the narrative of the victim in question is not being granted. I’d like to say that it’s nobody’s business and that no one is owed a story or an outcome. This is my life. These are my decisions and I’m disappointed in my parents and the press in every way. Thank you.”
In an email exchange with Rolling Stone, she declared that the notion that she was brainwashed or coerced in any context is “grotesquely false” and that “Ezra and our crew” will speak about their story “when they see fit.”
Ezra Miller’s Instagram Controversy
The actor has had a busy year brushing shoulders with law enforcement. They publicly threatened a North Carolina chapter of the Ku Klux Klan, the white supremacist group, in a video on social media, saying the clip was “not a joke” and asking followers to “take it seriously”. Later, within the course of a month, the actor was arrested on two separate occasions in bars in Hawaii for assault and “yelling obscenities”.
After the recent allegations of Iron Eyes’s parents, the actor shared a string of Instagram memes before deleting their Instagram account completely and going off-grid. The first post read “You cannot touch me. I am in another universe.” The second one was labeled “Message from another dimension.” The third one was attached with an image of a person keeling over and vomiting was captioned, “Me remembering how I was nice to people when I should have said who the f*ck do you think you’re talking to.” The fourth meme referred to people giving him a headache and the fifth was as follows:
Chase Iron Eyes has declared that he is concerned for Ezra’a state of mind and asked the Standing Rock Sioux Tribal Court in North Dakota for a restraining order against them. A hearing is to be held on July 12 at the same court and the court will issue the order if Miller is unable to show up at the set place and time.
Fans Asking Warner Bros. To Take Action
The Warner Bros. studio has not launched any official statement yet alluding to the events surrounding The Flash actor. The movie is already set for June 23, 2023 release and it remains to be seen if any action pertaining to its theatrical release will be taken or not. As for the actor’s replacement, the studio has claimed it to be impossible to reshoot an entire movie.
Twitter is also rampant with critical fan reactions against Miller’s recent activities, several of which are criticizing Warner Bros.’s inaction against the actor.
where are Ezra Miller’s friends/agent/management? when is WB going to step in and say “look, we’re gonna release the flash, but we aren’t working with Ezra anymore” or literally do anything at all.
this has gone on far too long and I don’t believe there’s no one who can stop it https://t.co/mIoeZOK3rM

We need to talk about Ezra Miller. They are currently on the run with an indigenous teen that they began grooming at age 12. They have drugged, brainwashed, and abused them, taken their phone and ID, assaulted their family, and are mocking police for not being able to catch them. https://t.co/4woxRlPjQU

As for the Fantastic Beasts franchise, Miller is not officially a part of any future projects. But fans have been asking Warner Bros. to take action against the actor following the transgressive social media memes shared by the actor insulting the authority.
