Footage shows ‘Flash’ star Ezra Miller accusing police officer of bigotry for improper pronoun use

Footage from one of Ezra Miller’s recent arrests have surfaced in which the “Flash” star, 29, responded to one officer who called Miller “sir” by explaining to police, “I’m sorry, I’m not a sir. I’m transgender non-binary. Please don’t call me a sir.”o

The body-cam footage of the arrest, which took place in Hawaii, was obtained by Fox News Digital.

In the video, the officer relayed to Miller he “was just trying to be respectful,” to which Miller replied, “If you fail to do that again, that is an act of intentional bigotry and it is an intentional hate crime per U.S. federal law.”

“Please call me ‘they/them/theirs,’ you can use the term ‘Mx.’… if you prefer,” Miller told the officer.

The Hawaii Police Department has confirmed that Miller was arrested on March 28 and was charged with disorderly conduct and harassment due to incidents that took place at a local karaoke bar.

According to a news release from The Hawaii Police Department, Miller became angry after being asked to leave a get-together at a Big Island home and threw a chair, hitting a woman in the forehead.

“Miller began yelling obscenities and at one point grabbed the microphone from a 23-year-old woman singing karaoke and later lunged at a 32-year-old man playing darts,” added the HPD. “The bar owner asked Miller to calm down several times.”

On Thursday, another video from Miller’s arrest in March was also made public. In it, Miller tells officers that they were assaulted while authorities attempted to place them in handcuffs following an incident that went down at a bar in Hawaii.

“I got assaulted and I started filming. Let me show you the video. I got assaulted in this bar, twice in a row. I film myself when I get assaulted for NFT crypto art,” Miller says in the clip, before asking the police officers for their credentials.

“What’s your name? What’s your badge number? Tell me your name and your badge number. Full name! Full badge number!” Miller demands of authorities. “Don’t touch me. Tell me your name and your badge number, now!”

Miller proceeds to ask police: “I’m being arrested for disorderly conduct?” to which an officer confirms that they are before Miller states, “I was assaulted. You understand that, right?”

Miller has pleaded no contest to the disorderly charge and was handed a $500 fine as well as ordered to stay away from the karaoke bar.
