We need to talk about Ezra Miller and the problematic video that seems to hang to a woman


The singer and actor Ezra Miller, who emerged to fame by starring in the film “We need to talk about Kevin”, is the feeling between men, women and people with non-binary. Is the star of the Met Gala, the fashion event of the annual most important, or in any convention of comics alike. But the scandal that has unleashed a video in which the artist of 27 years visibly violent to a woman could make a dent in his career.

Miller took the neck to a fan in a bar in Reykjavik, Iceland, according to a recording of 15 seconds is sent out from the Sunday, April 5, at night in social networks.

In the recording it sees that Miller says to a woman “Oh, want to fight? Is this what you want to do?”, and suddenly the decision by the neck and thrown to the ground. In the video you hear that, whoever is recording the video, is shocked into calling Miller to calm down.

An employee of the bar where you took the pictures confirmed to Variety magazine that yes it was an altercation seriously in the establishment, and that, even, the man they identify as Ezra Miller was escorted to the exit of the place. According to the magazine, Miller was confronted by a group of enthusiastic fans and it was when he attacked the woman.

In 2018, an editor at The Guardian called Ezra Miller, “the hero that we need right now” by estelarizar the cover of Playboy wearing heels, make up and ears “bunny” representative of the brand.

The interview was for his performance in the movie “Fantastic Animals: The Crimes of Grindelwald”, and the publication received numerous compliments -and criticism – because Miller broke with the stereotypes and identified publicly as a person, not binary.

A person does not binary is one that is not categorized between what has been imposed socially as male and female, that is to say, as a man or as a woman.

The photographs of Miller for Playboy in high heels and makeup are not a new trend among other celebrities, primarily identified as male. Between them, David Bowie, Freddie Mercury or Iggy Pop which also meet the standards of beauty in western, i.e. white, thin, and famous.

Ezra Miller said in the interview that he was proud not to be part of the generations in Hollywood before the movement antipredator labour, Time’s Up, and referred to that stage as a disaster, “racist, sexist and rape culture that is still celebrated”.

So it was that Miller came to the culture mainstream, without leaving your side of paria in the show and became the icon that you admire for the communities LGBTTTI (Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual, transgender, transvestite and intersex), mainly the generations of millennials and Z.

In social networks some users commented that the video is a joke or a game and some are displayed outraged with Ezra Miller.

It also emerged memes about the violent reaction of Miller and other comments expressing that they want to “cancel” the actor.

But the video is problematic even if it were a “joke” or even if the actor might have been atosigado by their fans. Such a violent reaction against a person does not have justification.

The physical violence against women manifests itself sometimes with strokes, pats, or shoving in the form of a “joke / game”, according to the violentómetro that created the National Polytechnic Institute of Mexico (IPN). The extent of the violence-physical and sometimes psychological emotional – is on the rise since jokes hurtful to push or jalonear and finally the sexual abuse or the murder.

Violence normalized

A similar case occurred in 2016, with the advertising campaign of the movie “X-Men: Apocalypse,” which showed a scene in which the antagonist Apocalypse hanging herself to Mystique, played by Jennifer Lawrence.

Despite the fact that it was fiction, the image caused a commotion and criticism for the message it sent, as was stated by the actress Rose McGowan, who catapulted the movement #MeToo in Hollywood.

The distributor Fox apologized for using this image to promote the film without recognizing the connotation insensitive that showed.
