Issa Rae says Ezra Miller's bad behavior is "a microcosm of Hollywood"

Issa Rae says Hollywood’s treatment of problem actor Ezra Miller is an example of how not much has changed in the industry since the #MeToo movement. The Emmy-nominated actress has spoken Elle about how “it looks like we were regressing, in a depressing way”.

“While I don’t support people jumping to immediate conclusions and I think it is entirely fair that the investigations take place, I think it is extremely important, as the mantra says, ‘Listen to women.’ I’ll be real, the things that are happening with Ezra Miller is, to me, a microcosm of Hollywood, “shared Rae.

Miller has been on the front page for months for creepy behavior. The Justice League star is accused of inappropriate behavior towards women, a minor, and has been arrested at least twice. Miller, who is non-binary and uses their pronouns, would exhibit cult-like behavior. In August they released a statement stating that they are seeking treatment for “complex mental health problems” as a future of The flash it was weighed up at Warner Bros. The studio sticks to the film and, therefore, to its star.

“There is this person who is a repeat offender, who has behaved atrociously, and instead of shutting them down and shutting down production, there is an effort to save the film and them,” continued Rae. “This is a clear example of what Hollywood will do to save itself and protect offenders. So don’t do it, and women may be able to thrive. They won’t have to live in fear of staying silent because it will ruin their careers. It’s just a constant pattern of abuse that will only persist if Hollywood continues to insist on it. “

Rae added that “there are too many enablers for there to be any real change” in Hollywood.

“People must be held accountable. There must be legitimate consequences. Hollywood is bad about the consequences. It is literally the worst industry when it comes to punishing people for deeds and misdeeds, because money will always reign supreme,” he said.

“It is something that, even working in this industry, we are allowing. So it’s difficult. What I understand is that I can control my environment and who I work with. I can hold the people responsible in my world and in my bubble,” he noted. Rae. “I don’t have to work for everyone. All money is not good money. All people are not good people.”
