A Massachusetts mother and her 12-year-old child, who is non-binary, have been granted a temporary order of protection against actor Ezra Miller, whose location is currently unknown.
The protective order was triggered by a series of incidents starting on Feb. 2, according to a report published by the Daily Beast on Thursday, which includes interviews with an unidentified witness as well as the mother and child. They were visiting their downstairs neighbor’s home in Greenfield when Miller allegedly showed up armed and “wearing a bullet proof vest.”
“The Flash” actor went on to bring up Parcheesi and its Rastafarian roots, and then lost their temper when asked which sect of the Rastafari movement it originated from.
“At this point, Ezra explodes and started screaming directly into my face. They said, ‘You don’t even know what the f— you’re talking about. What did you say to me? What did you just say to me?’” the neighbor recalled, adding that Miller then opened their jacket to reveal a gun on their hip.
“They said, ‘Talking like that could get you into a really serious situation.”
Miller at one point also allegedly questioned whether the mother wanted to drink their blood and then approached the child, who was 11 at time, and hugged them and forcibly touched their hips.
“They automatically were just weirdly drawn to me and kept talking about how they love my outfit and love my style, and kept going on and on about how it was great,” the child told the Daily Beast.
“It was really uncomfortable. I was really nervous. I was scared to be around them after they’d yelled at my mother and she was crying.”
Both the mother and neighbor believe that Miller may have been “under the influence” at the time.

Miller later apologized for their behavior, but returned on several occasions, including in late April, in May, and on June 4, dressed as a cowboy.
The recent order of protection, granted on Wednesday, comes after the parents of 18-year-old activist, Tokata Iron Eyes, successfully obtained a protective order prohibiting the movie star from contacting their daughter. They’ve alleged Miller has been grooming Tokata since she was 12 years old.
In a video shared to social media, Tokata dismissed her parents’ concerns, saying “This is my life. These are my decisions. And I’m disappointed in my parents and the press in every way.”
In recent months, Miller has also faced legal trouble while in Hawaii, where he was twice arrested — the first time in March for a drunken incident at a karaoke bar and then again in April. They have been mostly mum since the initial order of protection issued aside from a series of memes seemingly mocking the authorities who are searching for them.
“You can’t touch me, I am in another universe,” they wrote, according to The Los Angeles Times.
On Wednesday Miller’s verified Instagram account was deleted.
The 28-year-old actor, well-known for his role in the “Fantastic Beasts” franchise, also headlines DC’s “The Flash,” the release of which has been delayed until next year.
