Last night I was scrolling through social media when a video caught my eye. The video showcased screenshots between Armie Hammer and a woman with explicit language around how he wanted to… eat her.
Recently I wrote about Tom Felton and the screenshots that were fabricated with claims that he was grooming a minor. Within a few hours, the minor came forward to say that she had lied. None of Tom’s exes came forward and there were no other accusations brought to light.
The Armie Hammer situation appears to be a completely different. In a matter of days, several of his exes have come forward to the media to tell a story.
To learn more about the full scope of what has happened since these screenshots came to light, let’s dive into the statements made by two of the women who have had an intimate relationship with the actor.
Jessica Hiernquez dated Armie Hammers last summer for several months. When these accusations became public several days ago she had something to say.
Jessica also revealed that she had blocked Armie Hammer and they were no longer in contact.
Jessica isn’t the only ex from Armie Hammer’s life that decided to speak out. Courtney Vucekovich also made a statement claiming that instead of pillow talk, Armie preferred to fantasize about what parts of her body he would love to roast and devour, along with barbequing her ribs.
“‘F–k that was weird,’ but you never think about it again,” Courtney said of overlooking the odd behavior at the time. “He says, ‘I want to take a bite out of you.’ If I had a little cut on my hand, he’d like to suck it or lick it. That’s about as weird as we got.” -Page Six
Obviously, Courtney could not confirm whether or not the screenshots were real… only that they did not come as a surprise to her.
When I first read about these claims I was absolutely shocked. Then I realized, I didn’t know anything about Armie Hammer’s dating history. I didn’t know anything about him except for the characters he has portrayed on the screen.
It took barely any due diligence to realize that even if these claims sound insane, they are being validated by two women who did know the man outside of the screen.
Courtney Vuchkenon talked about Armie in a way that hit home for me as I’m sure it would for anyone that has been in a manipulative or abusive relationship.
“He enters your life in such a big way. He’s such a captivating person. He has such a presence and he’s aware of that and he uses it in such a way that most women would think, ‘Oh my gosh, this is amazing,’ but especially young women, that’s kind of the scary part — how good he is at active manipulation and making you feel like he’s never felt this way about anybody.”
As if today the claims have not been verified to be either false or true but Armie Hammer did make a public statement several days ago in regards to the accusations.
“I’m not responding to these bullshit claims, but in light of the vicious and spurious online attacks against me, I cannot in good conscience now leave my children for four months to shoot a film in the Dominican Republic.” -BBC News
Armie had been set to star in a new film alongside Jennifer Lopez but has pulled out and the role will be recast.
When I first read about these accusations I admitted to myself that they were absolutely wild. But, as we have all learned by the situations, where “charming” men like Chris Watt’s murder their wives and children… violence towards women knows no bounds.
After doing just a quick Google search, I realized that Armie Hammer had been very vocal about his sexual history. He has boasted about grabbing women by the neck and being a dominant lover.
If he is so vocal about being a deviant in the limelight, what on earth is he capable of doing while protected by darkness in the shadows?
I choose to stand behind his ex’s that have seen firsthand, the man in the shadows, and I hope in time, more truth about this man is brought to light and he is forced to take accountability for his actions.
