Sometimes a feud comes along so unexpected that it blows you away. Stepping into the fold vacated by new mates Drake and Kanye are actor Ezra Miller and the Ku Klux Klan. 

And Miller is very serious by the sounds of it. The actor – who famously portrays The Flash in the DC Extended Universe – just posted a wild Instagram video.

Calling themselves “The Mad Goose Wizard”, Miller says that they have a message “for the Beulaville chapter of the North Carolina Ku Klux Klan.”

“Hello, first of all, how are y’all doing,” Miller calmly says in the clip as they sit in the passenger seat of a car. “It’s me! If y’all wanna die I suggest just killing yourselves with your own guns. Ok? Otherwise, keep doing exactly what you’re doing right – and you know what I’m talking about – and we’ll do it for you if that’s what you really want.”

Miller then concludes by saying, “talk to you soon, ok, bye!” The Fantastic Beasts star also stated in the post’s caption that “this is not a joke and even though I do recognise myself to be a clown please trust me and take this seriously.”

It’s still unclear what’s prompted Miller to make this video but they sound extremely upset. According to their Instagram, they’ve spent much of early January in Wyoming so it’s unclear if they’re now in North Carolina where this Ku Klux Klan chapter is based.

Word of Miller’s video has already spread like wildfire on social media (see below). Interestingly, Miller flashed his Flash ring at the start of the video. They’re next outing as the comic book character will be in The Flash, set for release on November 4th.

Before that, they can be seen as Credence Barebone in the next instalment in the Wizarding World franchise, Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore, due out on April 15th.
