The guy stalks around a Missouri music venue, dressed in a long purple coat and smeared makeup like the Joker character of Heath Ledger in “The Dark Knight” He holds up a giant magnifying glass while streaming himself live on Facebook and emits a nervous giggle. Off-screen, someone asks what he’d like to drink. Joker asks for Demo.
He says. “I can’t be inebriated when I’m planning on killing a bunch of people,”
Moments later, police emerge, and Jeremy Garnier, 51, is arrested on a first-degree felony charge of making a threat to terrorism. But the incident on Monday night was a misunderstanding, according to friends and fans of Garnier, who are trying to raise money for his legal defence. Supporters of the self-proclaimed performance artist, who has more than 12,000 Facebook followers, say he just played a role and did not intend to hurt anyone. Throughout the live-streamed video, which also shows he gets kicked out of a mall, Garnier repeatedly says he is trying to raise awareness of the opioid crisis.
“When you share this video, let them know that the Joker ain’t joking around when it comes to serious addiction,” he tells viewers shortly before his arrest. “You need to leave that stuff alone and inspire the children not to do it.”
Smirking and flaring his eyebrows, he adds, “And … kill a few people while you’re at it.”
