Ezra Miller has yet to respond to the viral video.

Justice League and Fantastic Beasts actor Ezra Miller is currently under fire after a video in which they appear to grab someone by the throat and push them to the ground has surfaced online.

In the video, which was reportedly filmed in Iceland, Ezra can be heard saying "Do you wanna fight?" to a woman.

Ezra then pushes the woman with a hand around her throat, and pulls her to the ground. Behind the camera, you can hear someone say "woah" before people panic and move toward the pair. The camera then stops filming.

The video appears to have been uploaded to Reddit four days ago, before being taken down and re-uploaded on social media. According to a screenshot, it appears that the video was also uploaded to Twitter on April 2nd 2020. It has since been deleted.

With very little context in such a short clip and no confirmation, it's unclear what exactly is happening in the video. Some users have speculated that it could be a joke and are refraining from judging the situation. Others are incredibly concerned about the whole thing.

The story was also reported by Icelandic newspaper Fréttablaðið on April 2nd. The owner of the location where the incident took place did not want to comment on this particular matter but condemned all forms of violence.

According to Variety, a source at the establishment, Prikið Kaffihús, confirmed that this was a "serious altercation at the bar, and that the man, whom they identify as Miller, was escorted off the premises."

Shortly after the video began circulating online, #EzraMillerIsOverParty began trending on Twitter.

On My Block actor Diego Tinoco was one of the Twitter users who reacted to the footage. He wrote: "Dam.. insanely inhuman to disrespect and harm a fan like that. Don’t know the whole backstory but I don’t think I have to. People get so clouded up in their heads with vanity they think they can do whatever they want to whoever they want. Fuck Ezra Miller"

Neither Ezra nor a spokesperson has responded to the footage yet. This article will be updated if a statement is made.
