For a long time now, Warner Brothers has been wrestling with what is to be done regarding performer Ezra Miller. Cast in the role of “The Flash,” Miller has been at the center of a number of anti-social episodes across the globe over the past couple of years, involving confrontations in Germany, Iceland, and Hawaii, as well as two other cases of possibly grooming younger kids in South Dakota and Massachusetts.
Variety, in performing a lengthy investigation into some of these legal scrapes, has located a few of Miller’s alleged victims. The problem rests when the outlet takes a decidedly disturbing approach to detailing the episodes. Miller has declared being non-binary and as a result, in recounting their experiences, Variety takes pains to be sure not to misgender Miller, going so far as to alter the quoted testimony of the women when they deem it necessary. The outlet appears to be deeply worried it might offend a violent abuser. The ridiculousness begins early, as Variety works hard to address Miller in the proper fashion, and the fractured language that follows delivers this ridiculous diction. Miller…became a regular at bars in Iceland’s capital, Reykjavík, where locals came to know and even befriend them. Many recognized Miller from their earliest breakout movies, 2012’s “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” and 2011’s “We Need to Talk About Kevin,” where they played a troubled teen. Resorting to the they/them pronoun while describing encounters with a crowd of people leads to obtuse reporting. When it becomes unclear if you are describing the group or the preferred pronoun reference you have veered from your charged duty of providing clear reporting on a matter. It […]
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
