As revealed across numerous criminal reports, the Flash’s mask is fully off, and there’s a troubled, violent, predatory person back there named Ezra Miller. And, as revealed last week, Warner Bros. has reasoned there are three ways to deal with that in regards to the release of Miller’s The Flash movie: PR damage control; kicking Miller off the press tour and hoping everyone just sort of forgets the crime spree; or outright shelving the thing.
Unsurprisingly, they’re going with the first option.
To that end, Miller yesterday released a statement in which they in no way admit fault or atone for anything specifically, and make it completely about their own crises, but do vaguely apologize and suggest some sort of therapy.
“Having recently gone through a time of intense crisis, I now understand that I am suffering complex mental health issues and have begun ongoing treatment,” Miller said in a statement to Variety. “I want to apologize to everyone that I have alarmed and upset with my past behavior. I am committed to doing the necessary work to get back to a healthy, safe and productive stage in my life.”
What a mitzvah for anyone who was groomed, strangled, burgled, or otherwise attacked! Don’t worry, folks: Ezra Miller is going to be productive again! They will do the work to get themself in a healthy, safe-enough mental state to shoot a Flash sequel! Sorry if anyone was alarmed that The Fla2h wouldn’t happen!
Oh, wait, nope! That was it! Just three sentences containing little admission of guilt and barely an apology for general “past behavior”—some of which occurred as recently as a week ago.
This is earnestly not meant as a jab at non-binary pronouns, but what is the gender-neutral way to say, “This fuckin’ guy…”?
