“Is Armie Hammer a cannibal?” Millions of fans are asking this question on social media and there doesn't seem to be a clear answer in sight. Addressing his leaked DM controversy, the 34-year-old broke his silence and called it “b******* claims”.

In an official statement to TMZ and Daily Mail, the star — known for his roles in ‘Rebecca’ and ‘Call Me By Your Name’ — said, “I'm not responding to these b******* claims but in light of the vicious and spurious online attacks against me, I cannot in good conscience now leave my children for 4 months to shoot a film in the Dominican Republic.”

He added, “Lionsgate is supporting me in this and I'm grateful to them for that.” The controversy first sparked when a set of leaked text messages started floating on Twitter and many social media users alleged that he indulged in many fetishes. A few other fans countered those claims and said that the messages were “fake” or had been “manipulated”.

What does Armie Hammer's wife think?

No sooner did the images circulate online, Hammer's wife Elizabeth Chambers reportedly expressed concern and one of her friends told Daily Mail, “Armie had a whole other side to him that she wasn’t aware of. Whether it was always there and he kept it hidden, or something happened that changed him completely, she doesn't know.” 

Dubbing him a “monster”, Chamber’s friend also noted that “a lot of these women have reached out to Elizabeth and although she didn't want to admit it to herself at first, she knows now they are speaking the truth.” The source claimed that one of the women who contacted Chambers was “so traumatized” that she had to enter the “intense rehab and therapy program because of his emotional and maybe physical abuse.”

The statement read further, “He preyed upon her when she was coming out of a relationship. He made her feel very uncomfortable, the things he wanted to do made her very scared.”

The truth behind drinking and drugs photos

Amid all the controversy, a few photos of the actor drinking and indulging in drugs were obtained by the Daily Mail. In one clip, Hammer can be heard saying, “Sh*t’s getting weird” while starring into the camera and licking off a white crystal substance from someone's palm. When the friend encourages him saying “more, more, more, more,” he sticks his tongue out and says, “Got it all.” In another clip, Hammer cracks open a beer while driving and takes a sip.

Are those videos and photos real? According to the Daily Mail, a source close to Hammer's family said: “He always liked to drink, do drugs, but never like this.” However, Hammer has been caught earlier for substance abuse. Reportedly, he was arrested in Sierra Blanca, Texas, in November 2011 for possession of marijuana. According to his booking photo, he was released on a $1,000 bond.

It was on Conan O’Brien’s 2018 show that he came clean about that incident. Recalling how he was “on a road trip”, he said he was taking decorations to his wife’s San Antonio bakery when he arrived at a checkpoint. “I knew at that moment I was f*cked,” he said. Calling a canine's sniff “the kiss of death,” he said he had to spend the night in jail. “The inmates were great,” he told the host, but “the guards were real a**holes.”



 

Does the Internet think those DMs are real?

With all the hullabaloo and recent reports on how Hammer dropped out of his latest film, ‘Shotgun Wedding’, opposite Jennifer Lopez, many fans online are wondering if the rumors are true indeed.

“I think in the case of Armie Hammer, the story is just believable enough, bc we've seen evidence of his kinky interests, that people are believing it to be true. but it goes so far into the extremes that I have trouble believing all of it is true. and again, it's really easy to,” one fan said and another posted, “Holy shit, this whole Armie Hammer cannibalism scandal is SO weird that I can’t even get myself to believe it’s real...” A third added, “I really need to know if this Armie Hammer cannibalism shit is real or not because the whole situation rides that fine line between 'elaborate troll' and 'so insane it must be true'.”



 



 



 

According to The Sun, the accuser has proof that the DMs are real. The anonymous user, House of Effie, shared a photo that depicts a hand tattoo similar to the one the actor has. Nonetheless, the confusion continues and Hammer's fans can't decide what to believe right now. 

Jessica Ciencin Henriquez, who was reportedly involved with Armie earlier, tweeted on her private account, “If you are still questioning whether or not those Armie Hammer DMs are real (and they are) maybe you should start questioning why we live in a culture willing to give abusers the benefit of the doubt instead of victims.” A screenshot of the message was shared by the outlet.

Since there are no real names released, there is no solid proof on who might be behind the allegations. When the text messages were sent, Hammer was still married to his wife Chambers and the two are parents to two children, daughter Harper, six, and son Ford, three.
