Armie Hammer tries to shut down Buzzfeed writer Anne Helen Petersen...again
Armie decided to continue his spat with the Buzzfeed writer following her tweet about J-Law.
Looks like Armie Hammer is butting heads with BuzzFeed writer Anne Helen Petersen...again.
Recently, the senior culture writer and western correspondent for BuzzFeed tweeted about Jennifer Lawrence's Vanity Fair cover story. She criticized it saying it was a painful read that reminded her of a toothache.
I have read a lot of painfully banal celebrity profiles but this new VF one on Jennifer Lawrence, it's like toothache-magnitude-painful levels of banality https://t.co/e2wN9eg6al— Anne Helen Petersen (@annehelen) February 27, 2018
Armie caught wind of this tweet, and it gave him some serious flashbacks. He replied to the writer's tweet, suggesting the writer take a chill pill.
Anne, your glass seems chronically half empty... maybe try meditating? Or even medicating? #chillpillneeded— Armie Hammer (@armiehammer) February 27, 2018
Anne responded by saying that she was not hating, she was analyzing.
I've already said this but will say it again: analysis ≠ hating.— Anne Helen Petersen (@annehelen) February 27, 2018
Also: I enjoy Jennifer Lawrence and wish she had better profiles written about her. https://t.co/thmdOHQ0b4
This comes in the wake of Anne's article about Armie titled 'Ten Long Years of Trying to Make Armie Hammer Happen'. Directly asking its readers "How many second chances does a handsome white male star get?", the article explores Armie's career in Hollywood.
“Ultimately, the problem isn’t that Armie Hammer was given this many chances to happen. It’s that the system that ensured those chances – along with those given to so many other white men – also withholds chances, leeway, and faith from those who need and would benefit from them most.” Anne wrote in her article.
Armie's BuzzFeed profile soon went viral and caught the actor's attention.
Your chronology is spot on but your perspective is bitter AF. Maybe I’m just a guy who loves his job and refuses to do anything but what he loves to do...?— Armie Hammer (@armiehammer) November 26, 2017
Replying to the article, Armie said that the writer was bitter in her tone, but got his chronology spot on. Many people were for the article's shade. Others criticized the writer, saying that she was being mean.
This is a wider issue. I'm liberal as can be, but I can't stand how people I agree with try to spread their message by attacking people and screaming at them. No one is going to get anyone to understand privilege by writing insulting articles about them.— Phil Kessler (@thefellsociety) November 27, 2017
This "article" is so many different kinds of needless, and irrelevant. Also, just mean for no reason.— Jay Baruchel (@BaruchelNDG) November 26, 2017
The actor then proceeded to shell out a series of tweets that put down the writer, which he apparently later regretted because shortly after posting the chain of tweets, Armie deactivated his Twitter account.
Armie recently starred in the Oscar-nominated film 'Call Me By Your Name' for which his performance is being critically received. We hope that the actor is able to hash out his differences with Anne before it gets unnecessarily out of hand!
