A second protective order was issued this week against The Flash star Ezra Miller, the Daily Beast reported Thursday, two months after the actor was arrested twice in Hawaii for disorderly conduct, harassment and allegedly throwing a chair at someone.
An unnamed Massachusetts 12-year-old was granted a temporary harassment prevention order against Miller, 29, on Wednesday, according to the Daily Beast, which viewed a copy of the signed order and spoke with the child, their mother, and a neighbor who were all present for the interaction with Miller.
In February, Miller—who lives in nearby Vermont—visited another neighbor’s home in Greenfield, Massachusetts, and had a verbal altercation with the child’s mother and the neighbor, the neighbor told the Daily Beast.
Miller, who was allegedly armed with a gun during the incident, complimented the child, hugged them and followed them on Instagram, with the child telling the Daily Beast “it was really uncomfortable.”
The parents of 18-year-old activist Takota Iron Eyes, who met Miller when they were 12 and Miller was 23, were granted a protective order against the actor last week, alleging the actor is “psychologically manipulating, physically intimidating and endangering the safety and welfare” of their child, according to the Los Angeles Times.
Chase Iron Eyes, one of Takota’s parents, told the Times last week he and the court “have no idea of knowing where Takota and Ezra are,” and can’t serve Miller the petition, which alleges Miller exhibited “cult-like and psychologically manipulative, controlling behavior.”
Forbes has reached out to representatives of Miller for comment.
An Instagram account which Takota Iron Eyes’ parents told the Times belongs to their child refuted the claims made in the petition. “My comrade Ezra Miller…has only provided loving support and invaluable protection,” they wrote in a statement. “My father and his allegations hold no weight and are frankly transphobic.”
Miller was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct and harassment in Hawaii in March for allegedly yelling at and grabbing a microphone from someone singing karaoke and lunging at someone playing darts. A couple filed and then dropped a restraining order against him for threatening them and stealing items from their room. In April, he was arrested again in the state for allegedly throwing a chair at someone. In 2020, Miller was caught on video apparently choking someone in Iceland.
