Diego Tinoco, who plays Cesar Diaz in teen drama On My Block, has criticised Ezra Miller after a video emerged allegedly showing the actor choking a fan.
In the video, which began trending on Twitter Sunday night (April 5), a person who appears to be the 27-year-old actor is approached by a female fan who seems to play fight with him after spotting him in Iceland.
In response, the man says “Oh, you wanna fight? That’s what you wanna do?” before grabbing her by the neck and pushing her into the back wall of an aisle truck parked behind her.
Some viewers believed the interaction was a harmless joke since the woman appears to have a smile on her face.
However, others pointed out that the person recording the video sounds concerned.
“Woah, bro. Bro,” he tells the man, assumed to be the Justice League actor, before the video cuts out.
In response to the video, Tinoco wrote to his Twitter followers: “Dam.. insanely inhuman to disrespect and a harm a fan like that. Don’t know the whole backstory but I don’t think I have to.”
He continued: “People get so clouded up in their heads with vanity they think they can do whatever they want to whoever they want. F**k Ezra Miller”.
Miller’s credits include We Need to Talk About Kevin, The Perks of being a Wallflower and the Fantastic Beasts films.
We reached out for comment from representatives of Ezra Miller, but are yet to hear a response.
