A man in Brooklyn provoked outrage on Friday when he tweeted a photo of his ticket receipt to a women only screening of the new ‘Wonder Woman’ movie.

Stephen Miller, a writer for the conservative site Heat Street, posted to his Twitter Friday morning he would be attending a ‘no boys allowed’ screening of the new film at the Alamo Drafthouse movie theater in Brooklyn, New York.

‘I have some personal news I’d like to share,’ he wrote, with a screenshot of two photos that prove he will be attending the Thursday night showing.

He immediately followed it with a second tweet, clarifying to his followers ‘that’s my ticket receipt on the right.’

The theater announced the screening on Wednesday, saying: ‘Apologies, gentlemen, but we’re embracing our girl power and saying “No Guys Allowed” for several special shows at the Alamo Downtown Brooklyn. And we say “Women (and people who identify as women) only” we mean it.’

Miller, seemingly bothered by the theater’s choice to host a ladies only screening, told DailyMail.com he’s ‘not interested in causing a scene’.

Additionally, replying to many of the people he angered with his defiance, he repeatedly wrote: ‘I’ll be enjoying the film with the ticket I purchased.’

He also pointed out it’s perfectly legal to buy a ticket to a specific screening, but it would be illegal to kick him out specifically on the ground of his sex or gender identity.

‘They cannot remove me from a public place for my sex or gender. I plan on enjoying the film. Thanks,’ he wrote on Saturday.

Miller also referred to the film several times through his Twitter feed as the ‘Chris Pine superhero movie,’ woefully ignoring that this is the first comic book inspired film to star a woman since Jennifer Garner in 2006’s ‘Elektra.’

His commentary on the issue, then coupled with his ticket purchase, earned him some hearty backlash, with many people clinging to the fact that he seemed to only buy the ticket to ‘prove a point’.

One Twitter user, amused by Miller’s capability to spend an entire day behind a computer screen responding to his haters, wrote: ‘Some men lay down their lives battling white supremacists on the streets. Others demand admittance to the women-only Wonder Woman screening.’

The tweet clearly referenced Friday night’s brutal double murder of two Good Samaritans in Portland by a self-avowed Nazi supporter who was slinging ‘anti-Muslim’ diatribe at two young girls on a train.
