Armie Hammer Is Speaking Out on Those Cannibal Claims as His Next Movie Recasts His Role

Warning: This post contains graphic language and descriptions of sexual violence.

Armie Hammer’s name began trending on Twitter last week for the most unlikely of reasons. Multiple women had come forward with screenshots they claimed showed conversations between themselves and the actor in which he appeared to detail sexually violent and sometimes cannibalistic encounters with them, outlining visceral fantasies of mutilating their bodies. The women’s messages, as they appear in these unverified screenshots of leaked DMs, further allege that Hammer crossed agreed-upon boundaries, caused them physical and psychological harm, and caused them to fear for their safety. They say they are coming forward with these screenshots now in the hopes of preventing Hammer from abusing women in the future as they claim that he abused them — and amid the news that the Call Me By Your Name star is being recast in his next movie, the actor has finally given a statement responding to these claims.
