What did Tokata Iron Eyes say?

On Monday (June 6), an Instagram account allegedly owned by Iron Eyes was recently posted in Miller’s defense, seemingly speaking out against her family’s concerns.

The full statement read: “I would like to make a statement to acknowledge the tragedy the general public is telling and the assumptions my family and friends have made on my behalf regarding my stability and others.

“I dropped out of Bard five months ago, my friend and comrade William died shortly after, my spirit was incredibly impacted and I needed space and time to process my grief. My comrade Ezra Miller has offered only loving support and invaluable protection during this time of loss throughout the above era.

“I have no need of conservatorship in any way or under any circumstances ever during my short-lived adulthood.

“My father and his allegations carry no weight and are frankly transphobic and based on the notion that I am somehow incapable of thinking coherently or contradicting opinions regarding my own relatives who are concerned for my wellbeing. I am now aware of the severity of the emotional and psychological manipulation I endured while in my parents’ home.

“I’m an adult and I deserve to feel authority in my own body. I’m tired of wondering if cops will show up daily to cut me up. I have decided to see a therapist and am excited to have a conversation with a psychologist about my anxiety and possible depression.

“It’s nobody’s business, my decisions are my own and the way the police intervened in my ‘case’ is unnecessary and a waste of time and resources.

“This bout of apparent betrayal and toxicity that my parents and others sought to punish me with was extremely embarrassing and traumatically life-changing. Relationships in my life have been severely impacted, some even adversely.

“This behavior is unacceptable and must be reported.”
