It’s been weeks now that the name of Armie Hammer is making the rounds of social media and the web, as it has found itself at the center of a decidedly unpleasant scandal. The actor, in fact, was accused of cannibalism after some chats spread on Twitter documenting scary requests that the star would have made to some girls. The conversations have been branded as false, but in the meantime a real “shit-storm” has begun, as it is called in the jargon, on his behalf, so much so that he has postponed the start of the shooting of his next film.
The statements of Armie Hammer
The film we are talking about is the one that sees him starring together with Jennifer Lopez, whose shooting should have started right at the beginning of 2021, but the star of Call Me by Your Name, wanted to ask the production of the film of the time to to be next to her children, given the delicate moment she is going through. In a statement, as reported by Variety, the actor wanted to make public his decision to put the role in Shotgun Wedding on standby, waiting for the scandal to settle:
I’m not answering these shitty claims, but in light of the vicious and bogus online attacks against me, I can’t in good conscience now leave my kids for 4 months to shoot a movie in the Dominican Republic. Lionsgate is supporting me in this and I am grateful to them for that
A choice that was also supported by the production: “Armie asked to leave the film and we support him in his decision “, a representative from Lionsgate said.
The actor accused of cannibalism
So far there had been a long silence on the part of the actor, no declaration and no denial. This had suggested that there might be some truth to what was revealed in those chats. The messages, rather disturbing, also said sentences that were strong to read: “I need to drink your blood” it’s still: “I’ve never told anyone, but it’s all true“. Armie Hammer, therefore, soon became a magnet for insults of all kinds, in some of which the hypothesis is advanced that it may be a sexual predator, taking as true the rumors that emerged about him that emerge precisely in one of the moments most prolific of his career: cast for new films, e TV series like The Officer for Paramount, star of hits like Rebecca on Netflix.
