Actor Ezra Miller trended on Monday morning after a video was posted to Reddit that appeared to show him choking a female fan and take her to the ground.
Says the man alleged to be Miller: “Oh, you wanna fight? That’s what you wanna do?”
The context surrounding the video is unclear, and the woman being choked has a smile on her face so some are speculating that the clip was part of a stunt, although the cameraman says “Whoa, bro. Bro” toward the end of the very brief video.
UPDATE. A source told Variety the clip is legit: “Variety has confirmed the incident took place around 6 p.m. on April 1 at Prikið Kaffihús, a trendy bar in central Reykjavik that Miller frequents when he is in town. According to a source at the bar, the altercation took place after the individual, identified as Miller, was confronted by a group of eager fans, who were ‘quite pushy.’ Things then escalated, with Miller losing his temper at one woman in particular. Prikið staff escorted the actor, who was upset and angry, off the premises following the incident.”
Miller’s reps have yet to comment.
Miller has not commented on the video.
