Ezra Miller, Fantastic Beasts star, was arrested on March 28 in Hilo, Hawaii, for harassment and disorderly conduct at a local karaoke bar. Soon after, it prompted an emergency Warner Bros. meeting about star’s future. Seems like Will Smith isn’t the only Hollywood star facing career backlash in the wake of a public outburst.
Ezra Miller’s projects with Warner Bros. and DC are reportedly in jeopardy after they were arrested in Hawaii. The companies’ executives held an emergency meeting on March 30 to discuss the troubled actor’s future with the studio following their legal trouble on the island state, Rolling Stone reports.
The consensus of the meeting allegedly was to pause all future projects involving Miller. Furthermore, that also includes any public appearances they may have had scheduled to support the DC Cinematic Universe. Miller, who is 29, is set to appear as the titular character in The Flash which is slated for release in 2023.
One insider says Miller had “frequent meltdowns” during production last year on The Flash. While the insider stresses there was no yelling or violent outbursts, they described Miller as “losing it.” “Ezra would get a thought in their head and say, ‘I don’t know what I’m doing’” the insider explained.
In addition to his arrest, a local couple filed a temporary restraining order against Miller on March 29. The couple claimed that after Miller’s arrest, Miller burst into their bedroom and threatened them. According to the report, Miller said to the man that, “I will burry you and and your sl*t wife.”
Miller, who was the subject of 10 police calls in less than a month, allegedly stole a passport and wallet, which included a Social Security card, license and more.
Representatives for Miller and Warner Bros. declined to comment anything at the moment. Keep reading Thirsty for more update.
