They say the message is directed at the “Beulaville chapter of the North Carolina Ku Klux Klan.”
“Look, if y’all want to die, I suggest just killing yourselves with your own guns. OK?” said the 29-year-old actor, who uses they/them pronouns.
“Otherwise, keep doing exactly what you’re doing right now — and you know what I am talking about — then, you know, we’ll do it for you, if that’s really what you want. Talk to you soon, OK. Bye.”
In the accompanying caption, Miller asked their followers to share the video.
“Please disseminate (gross!) this video to all those whom it may concern. This is not a joke and even though I do recognize myself to be a clown please trust me and take this seriously. Let’s save some lives now ok babies? Love you like woah.”
For those who don’t know, the Ku Klux Klan is a white supremacist terrorist and hate group.
In the comments, some expressed concern.
“Ezra are things alright? I’m serious,” said one.
“Are you okay? Are you literally in danger? I’m not even being sarcastic when I ask this,” questioned another.
The video has led to Miller trending on Twitter.
Ezra Miller vs. The KKK wasn’t on my 2022 bingo card, but I’ll take it.

Ezra Miller calling out a specific chapter of the kkk and telling them to kill themselves or they’ll get killed is now the gold standard for celebrity activism. I’m so in love with them.
