EMMERDALE’s Danny Miller Caught In Homophobic Attack

Danny Miller, who plays the gay character Aaron Livesy on the ITV1 soap Emmerdale, was attacked while out in Manchester by a group of men in who shouted gay slurs at the 19-year-old actor.

An onlooker told The People: “It was terrifying. A group of lads shouted, ‘Oi gay boy, you out with your boyfriend tonight?’ “Another screamed, ‘Oi faggot, is that your boyfriend?’ Then the yobs started running and screaming, ‘Get him, get him.'”

Miller was apparently punched by at least one person in the mob. He tweeted about the incident later and reassured everyone that he was alright.

"Don't listen to what has been put on here tonight. I was attacked by a couple of lads tonight but managed to escape unharmed. Don't worry. Afraid to say it was EMMERDALE related. Not sure why though. Hadn't seen them before ever. Don't worry though."

Miller was out in Manchester to see his father, the comic Vince Miller, perform.
