"Who are you? Do you wanna fight? That's what you wanna do?" Miller, who has also starred in titles such as Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and The Perks of Being a Wallflower, asks the unidentified woman, who was a patron at Prikina resort. When she doesn't respond, he approaches her and wraps his hand around her throat, pushing her into a wall and then to the ground.
"Whoa, bro! Bro! Bro! Bro!" the person standing behind the camera intervenes. According to ComicBook.com, the video story had first been picked up by Icelandic outlet Fréttabladid, who spoke to the Geoffrey T. Huntingdon-Williams, the co-owner of the Prikina resort.
"Unfortunately, we do not want to comment specifically on this incident unless it is under review," Huntingdon-Williams said in a statement translated from Icelandic. "We at Prikina state that we condemn all forms of violence and all its manifestations."
The clip has raised concerns among fans of Miller and the series and movies he has appeared in, many taking to social media to comment. "I've been a fan of [Ezra Miller] ever since seeing him in The Perks of Being a Wallflower nearly 8 years ago," wrote one person. "I've loved him in everything I've seen him in since and was so excited to see him in [The Flash] and the third [Fantastic Beasts] movie, but that video is inexcusable."0comments
