Ezra Miller does not like racists, and he wants you to know it. The “Beulaville chapter of the North Carolina Ku Klux Klan” is one that particularly irritates him and he spoke about it in a video posted to Instagram.
In a video posted to Instagram, the hate group wore a ring with the logo of The Flash, which Miller took on in a video uploaded to social media. In November, Miller will star as the super-speedy superhero in The Flash film named after him.
“Hello, first of all. How are y’all doing? It’s me. Look, if y’all wanna die, I suggest just killing yourselves with your own guns, OK?”
He continued, “Otherwise, keep doing exactly what you’re doing right now — and you know what I’m talking about — and then, you know, we’ll do it for you if that’s really what you want. OK, talk to you soon, OK? Bye!”
There’s not much of a backstory for the video, but once it was published, it began to trend. The post’s caption didn’t make things any clearer:
“Please disseminate (gross!) this video to all those whom it may concern. This is not a joke and even though I do recognize myself to be a clown please trust me and take this seriously. Let’s save some live now ok babies? Love you like woah.”

Miller’s name was also in the limelight earlier this week, when The Flash began test screenings ahead of its release. Many people on Twitter guessed that a teaser trailer would be released soon based on this. Batman and Michael Keaton are both returning for the fourth time as Bruce Wayne and Batman in this DCEU film.
Some fans were concerned that the film would erase all of the mythology developed by Zack Snyder’s previous DCEU movies in advance of its release. According to CBR, Miller said this was not the case at all.
“No power or force in any known megaverse would or could ever erase Zack Snyder’s mighty wrkz,” Miller said.
“You can take that quote. Take that to the bank, to the press, to the schools, to the military, and the other pillar of capitalism I’m forgetting ’cause of that thing where you try to think of a group of things you always forget one of them.”
In October of last year, filming on The Flash came to a close, and director Andy Muschietti stated that there were several surprises in the film for fans.
“We can tell you there are surprises, we cannot reveal what they are,” the director said.
“But it will probably blow your socks off…The less we talk about it the better. There’s excitement behind the cameras about those surprises. You better not know them until you see them on the big screen.”
