In the brief video at the Prikið Kaffihús establishment, Miller, wearing a red jacket, tells the woman ”Oh, you wanna fight? That’s what you wanna do?”
The woman appeared to be flippantly flailing her arms as a possible taunt. Miller then proceeded to choke her and push her to the ground as a man, presumably a friend, could be heard saying, “Whoa, Bro, Bro, Bro …”
The video, which has garnered over 5 million views, was at first met with skepticism as people speculated it was either a deepfake or joke. Variety later confirmed that the video was both authentic and serious.
Miller had previous disclosed in an interview that due to his ‘Queer identity’ he not only didn’t identify as a man, but he also “barely” identifies “as a human.”
