Armie Hammer posted a video of his 2-year-old son putting his dad’s toes in his mouth

34th Film Independent Spirit Awards - Arrivals

Armie Hammer and Elizabeth Chambers have two children. The oldest is a girl named Harper (Harper Hammer, my lord) and the youngest is a son named Ford Armand Douglas Hammer. Ford Hammer is about two and a half years old. And this child has some kind of obsession with A) putting things into his mouth and/or B) feet. Long story short, Armie Hammer posted a video of his son putting Armie’s toes in his (Ford’s) mouth. For real:

I feel like families do weird sh-t and there are private jokes and bizarre stories which, from the outside looking in, would look terrible or inappropriate or worse. That’s the reason why those kinds of stories should remain in the family, as private sh-t to laugh about when Ford is older and he brings home his first girlfriend. “Hey, remember when Ford was obsessed with putting his dad’s toes in his mouth LMAO.” In real time and on social media, of course that sh-t gets blown up and out of proportion. So there was a “backlash” to the video and everyone on the internet became a parenting expert and it got so bad that Elizabeth Chambers commented on Perez Hilton’s Instagram copy of the video:

Weighing in on the truth behind the video, the mother of two commented on Hilton’s post, sharing that contrary to her husband’s caption, their son only had his father’s toes in his mouth for a few seconds.

“It wasn’t seven minutes… more like five seconds,” she wrote, explaining that Ford’s behavior was a family joke. “Our son likes to play with people’s feet and I put the video on our family stream because this phase is an ongoing joke,” she explained, before admitting that “sharing the video on Instagram was def not the best move on A’s part but I can assure you that our children’s safety and well-being is always our first priority.”

[From People]

Yes. I agree. The problem is not that a 2-and-a-half year old has a weird thing about feet or toes. It’s probably just a phase and Armie and Elizabeth are probably just not making it a big deal and hoping Ford grows out of it. The problem was that Armie posted it online. That’s the issue here. I feel sorry for Ford when he grows up and finds all of this sh-t about him online.

    Why would you allow your child to lick and bite your nasty toes for 7 minutes and then tag it #footfetishonfleek? The worst part is sharing the video with millions of people. Some things don’t need to be shared. Unfortunately, they embarrassed their son and turned his innocence into a viral joke.

    • A random commenter says:

      A friend was able to find me scans online from a celeb interview in an old teen magazine that’s been defunct since the early 00s. Say that to say, the internet is eternal. Why any parent would think immortalizing and dispersing to millions something their kid is sure to find humiliating is a good idea, I’ll never know.

  2. notpretentious says:

    Save your pity for Ford, he will be comforted by did dads millions!

  3. Joanna says:

    I think it’s funny, I don’t get the outrage.

    • Ashby says:

      Nothing funny about it, it’s disgusting and it certainly isn’t the child’s fault.
      Armie seems to be as much of a fame-whore, as his wife is.
      I don’t know why there was a need to post this on the internet and why in the world did Armie use that awful hashtag.
      Too may people feel the need to post every little thing, there is such a thing as TMI!
      It’s none of my business what consensual adults are doing, but it is my business when it comes to children.
      Gross.

  4. Kittycat says:

    So disgusting, I am lost for words.

  5. Caity says:

    I was coming here to make the exact same point.
    Kids do funny/weird shit. Share that with your inner circle who get the joke. It’s never good to share with the internet at large, celebrity or not.

  6. Erinn says:

    It’s weird as hell. But the weirdest part is really that he’s happily sharing it to millions of people. Kids do weird shit. But letting him go for 7 freaking minutes doing something gross like that and then CHOOSING to share it and CHOOSING to select the hashtags he chose is freaking nuts.

    But at the same time, if Armie didn’t have negative press, he’d have no press at all. Which I think is a lot of the reasoning behind these choices.

  7. Lizzie says:

    2 year olds are weird. my daughter went through a three week phase of putting her own foot in her mouth b/c she could. she thought it was the funniest thing in the world and it was gross. we laughed a little, discouraged it a little and ignored it a little. but i didn’t put it on instgram and tag it #footfetishonfleek. i mean…i honestly think armie hammer gets drunk and does this shit and he is like a 3rd kid for his wife.

  8. crogirl says:

    LOL I think it’s funny too…

    • Raina says:

      It’s only funny….if the dad was carried to the couch directly from a long bath

      • minx says:

        Exactly…and I doubt he was.

      • London says:

        @ Raina :
        Exactly, Armie Hammer seems to be a huge moron.
        Yes, kids put a lot of things in their mouths, it is a part of growing up, but isn’t it the parents job to stop them?
        Is that not part of a good parenting to teach your children what is a right thing to do and what is a wrong thing to do?
        And why in the world would you post it on the internet, he knows very well that a lot of people will see it, because he is an actor, which obviously will command a significant level of attention.
        His wife seems to be a fame whore and Armie is nearly the same???

  9. lauren says:

    I did a lot of weird/funny things when I was a kid. We have family videos and albums that we pull out on birthdays etc and enjoy. It’s for family and friends ONLY. Not to be shared with the world and creepy people who will take an innocent action and turn it into something gross. I’m so happy I grew up before social media was a thing.

  10. C-Shell says:

    It’s hard for me to get worked up over this. I agree that sharing it in IG was unwise, but I’m betting Ford grows up to have his dad’s (and mom’s) sense of humor and outlook. He may not be embarrassed by this at all. In 14 years it will have been overtaken by oceans of other things, and I doubt it will be a blip on anyone’s radar but his family’s.

    ETA: Ford’s adorable.

  11. Nev says:

    Stop this.

  12. Rosalee says:

    The internet is filled with kids doing wacky things. It’s goofy and harmless but what concerns me is those idiots on Crazy Days and Nights sexualizing the footage. A number of the posts are suggesting Hammer is a sexual deviant who accidentally posted the footage.

    • sommolierlady says:

      CDAN is run by a habitual slandering liar who gets off on defaming celebrities and his fans are just as twisted.

  13. Original Jenns says:

    I think finding it funny or not is up to individual people. The hashtag foot fetish on fleek is either a) ignorantly sexualizing his toddler son’s behavior or b) ignorantly making fun of a person’s sexual activities. Also, not everything your kid does that entertains you needs to be shared to entertain the world. I think giving your child a social media presence is a slippery slope. I agree with the poster that AH is probably the third child in the family and I’m surprised he hasn’t taken down his Instagram and flounced away for the day.

    • ravynrobyn says:

      @ Original Jenns-”and I’m surprised he hasn’t taken down his Instagram and flounced away for the day”. PERFECT, SUCCINT ARMIE DESCRIPTION 👏👏👏👏👏

      3, 2, 1…

  14. Imara219 says:

    I’m more upset with his hijacking of AAVE term On Fleek and using it soooo wrong. But yeah, kids do random weird things. My 2 y/o tries to put my toes in his mouth because he thinks it’s funny and he likes the reaction. I won’t share it on my SM but then again I’m not an actor used to sharing my life on public setting

  15. minx says:

    I didn’t click on the video, the still picture was enough—dad’s giant foot inserted into his toddler’s mouth. Blech.

  16. Starkiller says:

    This guy has a habit of over sharing. Anyone remember when he was liking all those bondage videos on twitter and apparently didn’t realize that everyone can see his activity. It would be funny if not for his weird hashtag, that pushed it over the line into weird and gross. Me thinks this guy is a pervert.

    • Lizzie says:

      liking or participating in BDSM does not make you a pervert. bondage in particular is an ancient form of erotica and is practically mainstream.

      • Bailie says:

        MAINSTREAM?????WHERE?????

      • Lizzie says:

        are you kidding? armie hammer was liking pictures of rope bondage which is not uncommon. literally millions of people are into being tied down or tying someone down during sex.

        the DSM in BDSM is of course less common…but bondage can be pretty vanilla.

  17. Spicecake38 says:

    We have a local fame whore who is desperately trying to become an insta mom influencer-she puts everything out there and has followers,but I think they follow just to see how incredibly stupid she is,where I’m going with this is that she has actual insta accounts for her 5 year old daughter and seven year old son,and the pics of her daughter are borderline inappropriate-these kids will be eternally on the internet without any say,people should think before posting anything about their innocent children.

  18. SallyS says:

    The guy lacks talent and brains.

  19. Lala11_7 says:

    Toddlers will stick EVERYTHING in their mouths…the glorious little tykes…so that isn’t surprising…

    But for a grown ass man to post that on social media?

    THAT IS HORRIFYING!!!!

  20. HeyThere! says:

    This is so nasty but with that fact aside, the parents should have never posted it!!! This kid, who will quickly become an adult, will NEVER live this down. His parents were not thinking.

  21. Squirrelgirl says:

    Kind of OT but I had to stop following Elizabeth Chambers on Instagram. The woman is the most exhausting human being in the world. She’s constantly posting and going to parties and dragging her kids everywhere at all hours of the day/night. Then when the 2 year old gets grumpy she will post about it and I’m like… it’s 2 am and he’s at some restaurant???

    • Lizzie says:

      girl…same. she seems exhausting AF and is a complete fame whore. and she’s always getting her makeup done professionally – like – every day. for what?

      • Squirrelgirl says:

        The ironic part is that Armie was complaining about people who always post selfies and constantly overshare on Instagram and I’m like “hello???? Have you seen your wife??”

  22. Raina says:

    I picture a commercial with the Mr. Clean guy introducing a new product in a deep voice….Ford Hammer gets the stains out, he’ll even suck your toes. Better than Armand (arm and) Hammer. Do the British have different cleaning products? Although it doesn’t particularly… ummm….look like he’s worried about cleanliness.

  23. courtney says:

    his thirst for attention knows no bounds. the kid is just being a kid but why would you post that? i will never understand the compulsion to post so much personal information, photos, videos etc about a child who cannot consent to that, especially from a famous family that millions of people will see. the kids grown up with a complex and no privacy. its gross. armie is gross he proves it time after time. this comes as no surprise. poor kid

  24. CharliePenn says:

    It’s such a sad invasion of that tiny person’s privacy.
    My two year old girl is obsessed with boobs, she’s always grabbing my bras and holding them up to her chest and saying “my boobs! My boooobs!”. It’s hilarious. She also has to point out and then grab at any nipples that are out at any given point, like when I’m dressing, or she’s bathing, or her dad and bro are topless at the beach.
    We laugh about it and also try not to give it too much attention so she can grow out of this funny, bizarre toddler obsession. I took a video of her talking about nipples and sent it to my sis who lives overseas. My sis laughed about it and we kept it private, that was it. I can’t imagine sharing that on social media.
    Every child for time eternal has gone through weird phases and body obsessions. The difference is, it wasn’t documented and shared with hundreds (normal people) to millions (famous people) of strangers online! Honestly it would break my heart to let my daughter down and sell her development and fixation for likes. Gross behavior from the parents, ten times more gross than the toe thing this child is doing!

    • Apalapa says:

      Are you by any chance French? I ask because I thought they passed a law around posting pictures and video of your child, something like it violates their right to privacy. Just curious if a cb’er could explain it to me…

  25. HelloSunshine says:

    Ugh I hate to point this out but some sicko somewhere on the internet is just thrilled that he posted this. And wtf is that hashtag? This will follow this kid when people google him as he gets older. People need to stop assuming that what they’re posting up is super cute and think about the long term consequences. I cannot stress enough how easy it is for sick people to take an image of a child and make it something awful :(

  26. Nicegirl says:

    For some reason I’m not a fan of Armie Hammer. He seems scary to me in a weird way i can not describe.

  27. Annie says:

    Does he not know the internet is crawling with pedos? Why would you even let your baby put your sweaty toes in his mouth? If I was with wife I would be so mad at Armie. I don’t care if he likes it; don’t let him! Teach him boundaries with adults. You are the adult here. Don’t let him do that. Your feet are dirty. And if he tries to do that with someone else not in the family you won’t find it cute, and neither will everyone else. Some children quirks are not cute.

    All these celebrities and influencers who post embarrassing things about their kids on social media will have a lot to answer for in the future. This isn’t ok.

    • OddCouple says:

      I agree with everything you said but just wanted to note kids do put everything in their mouths and this could be, sadly and weirdly, good for his microbiome. But ultimately very gross to do and stupid to post.

  28. Minx says:

    Armie’s son sticking weird things in his mouth didn’t bother me in the slightest. Isn’t that like 75-90% of what kids do? My issue is with the caption/hashtag. That’s the first place Armie’s mind went to before hitting “post”???? Armie was the one who sexualized the whole mess with one astronomically stupid hashtag. I think this is largely why the internet’s reaction was: What the ever loving f**k was THAT? Call the police!!!!

  29. NotSoSocialButterfly says:

    And I thought my shelties were bad foot lickers.

  30. OddCouple says:

    I get a feeling these two are seriously conflicted and unstable about their relationship with the public. He’s got a chip on his back about his film flops and never really making it into the inner circle of HW A-listers and she’s obsessed with her appearance. Not to appearance shame but her thinness is truly shocking. She has a slight hint of a sort of double chin going on at normal weight (already very thin by real world standards) and has lost so much weight since she was first with Armie. And she’s crazy on her IG, in a super attention seeking sense. To round off my comment, will just point out her husband is the one who seems to love calling out people for sharing in the wrong way on social media. They both need to hire a social media guru and follow his/her recommendations to a tee.

  31. Sam says:

    I just literally had to google who these people are. Am I that out of touch? I read gossip blogs every day, how am I so in the dark, everyone seems to know who this is…..
