The Flash actor Ezra Miller, who plays Barry Allen, recently posted a bizarre video to Instagram where he threatens to kill members of a North Carolina Ku Klux Klan chapter.
Miller, who previously made headlines for choking a woman outside a restaurant in Reykjavik, Iceland, began the video stating, “Hi, this is Ezra Miller a.k.a the Bengal Ghouls, the Mad Goose Wizard, and this is a message for the Beulaville chapter of the North Carolina Ku Klux Klan.”
“Hello, first of all, how are y’all doing? It’s me. Look, if y’all want to die, I suggest just killing yourselves with your own guns. Okay,” he stated.
Miller then threatened to kill them, “Otherwise, keep doing exactly what you are doing right now. And you know what I am talking about. And then, you know, we’ll do it for you if that’s really what you want. Okay.”
“Talk you to soon, okay. Byeeeee,” he concluded.
Miller would also caption the video writing, “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,” he declared.
According to the Southern Poverty Law Center’s “Hate Map By State” there is no such Ku Klux Klan organization based out of Beulaville, North Carolina.
The organization lists 29 organization they classify as hate groups in North Carolina, none are located in Beulaville.
In fact, they only report that two Ku Klux Klan organizations are in North Carolina. The Loyal White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan are reportedly located in Pelham and the United Klan Nation is in Thurmond.
Given this information, it’s possible Miller might be doing some kind of weird promotion for the upcoming The Flash film. In the video, Miller can be clearly seen wearing The Flash’s iconic ring that he uses to dispense his suit.
In JLA #85, members of a Kentucky Ku Klux Klan group are shown about to commit suicide as one member states, “Time for the pain and hatred to end, and for a reckoning. We will now die by the same fire we used to unjustly extinguish so many lives –.”
However, unlike Miller threatening to kill them, Superman and Wonder Woman put a stop to their suicide ritual with Superman blowing out their torches and then telling them, “Though I hope this won’t stop you from following up with a serious revision of your belief system.”
What do you make of Miller’s threat against this branch of the Ku Klux Klan?
