Armie Hammer calls out Marvel chairman for being a Donald Trump mega-donor

New York screening of 'On the Basis of Sex' - Arrivals

I have a for-real question: what in the world is going on with Armie Hammer? It feels like he’s just constantly doing and saying the wrong things at the wrong time. Is he just compulsively socially awkward? Is he just terrible at everything? I don’t know. And here’s another question: it definitely feels like he has a chip on his shoulder about Marvel films in general, so what’s that about? Was he up for a Marvel role and he got denied? Well, anyway, Armie thought he would chime in on the subject of Stephen Ross, the guy who owns SoulCycle and Equinox, and also hosts giant Hamptons fundraisers for Donald Trump. Armie would like us to know that Marvel Entertainment chairman Isaac Perlmutter is also a Trump supporter:

The thing is, I didn’t know that? Isaac Perlmutter is apparently a reclusive billionaire, like Bruce Wayne but MAGA. Oh, wait, Bruce Wayne is DC Comics. LOL, I’m an idiot. Anyway, according to the Daily Mail’s records, Perlmutter has already donated $600,000 to Trump’s reelection campaign, and he donated about $1 million to Trump in 2016. Perlmutter has also spent time with Trump at Mar-a-Lago. I didn’t know any of this.

Now, is it weird or gross for Armie to point it out? Possibly. I don’t know. People were yelling at him on social media because apparently Armie’s parents are big-time GOP donors and supporters too. Which… fair enough. Armie *should* call out his parents as well. But I kind of think it’s fair game for Armie to point out that the guy who owns Marvel Entertainment is MAGA as f–k. It’s all just… gross. Anyone who supports Trump at this point is just disgusting and they shouldn’t be supported, even if it’s the guy who owns your favorite superheroes or Armie’s mama.

    There was something on Twitter last week about all the “rich” donors who support Trump, and the Marvel head was on that list. This started last week on Twitter and it didn’t start with Hammer.

    • Mel M says:

      Honestly I don’t even understand anyone getting angry about being “outed” as a Trump donor/supporter. If you’re MAGA why are you trying to hid it? If you are willing to donate hundreds of thousands, even millions to him shouldn’t you absolutely love the guy? If they are so scared about what people will do when they find out shouldn’t they wonder why? My in laws are loud and proud about it and don’t donate even a fraction of that kind of money. Most of his base are. My thinking is that if you don’t want to be a known trump supporter/donor then don’t, otherwise, why shouldn’t you have to answer for yourself? This is not a normal president.

    • Cay says:

      Here’s the Tweet I saw last week that must have started all of this.

      More Companies that are funded by Trump Supporters:
      -Equinox Fitness
      -The Chicago Cubs
      -New York Knick’s
      -San Francisco Giants
      -Marvel Entertainment
      -Revlon Makeup

  2. Nicegirl says:

    Good to know.

    • Esme says:

      Yep. If buying tickets for Marvel movies puts money in the pocket of a big Trump supporter, I’ll stop giving them my money.
      Is phase 4 now a way to “woke-wash” all that Trump money, I wonder?
      Even if I don’t like Amner at all, this one public service announcement was useful.

      • Valiantly Varnished says:

        Except it’s not. Perlmutter has literally NOTHING to do with Marvel Studios. He is an in name only head of Marvel Entertainment. Which are two different entities.

      • virginfangirls says:

        Does Perimutter make money off Marvels success?

      • Dutch says:

        @virginfangirls No more than any other Disney stockholder.

  3. Darla says:

    Marvel fans are well aware though. There’s been a lot of BTS drama over this. He’s why we didn’t get a stand alone Black Widow movie and why Black Panther didn’t happen until they put Feige in charge.

    • Darla says:

      However, i did NOT know that about his mom, and now I wonder if he’s not MAGA? And his tweet wasn’t so much calling out Perlmutter, as calling out “hypocritical” liberals for not boycotting Marvel movies. Hmmm…

      • Esmom says:

        Oh wow, yikes, good point. Heavy sigh.

      • Lightpurple says:

        Except Perlmutter has been sidelined in the MCU for years. It came down to Feige or Perlmutter and Disney went with Feige.

      • (TheOG)@Jan90067 says:

        I’m sure he has a BIG stock share though, so you can bet he profits.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        “i did NOT know that about his mom, and now I wonder if he’s not MAGA?”

        I think Hammer has talked about his political issues with his family before.

    • Jen says:

      I’m a Marvel fan and I was not well aware. There’s a lot of really terrible awful things going on in the world and a lot of garbage to sort through. It’s all very hard to keep track of. Between racism, homophobia, mass shootings, animal abuse, child abuse, rape, murder, incest, malnourished children / people who are impoverished, homelessness, incels, etc. etc. etc. etc….honestly it’s all very depressing and difficult to be the champion of each and every single cause. I think a lot of us are doing our best to be good people, while not getting sucked in to a complete pit of despair. Now I can’t even go enjoy some escapism in a superhero movie where the good guy is supposed to win, because I will be thinking about how awful it is that I am supporting a white supremacist. Damn. I wish the world was a better place.

      • Darla says:

        You’re right, I’m sorry. I don’t know why I said we are well aware, since I only found out after Infinity War. I don’t know what to say, it is very difficult. I do agree with others down below that it really doesn’t matter that Perlmutter no longer has any creative control and that Feige had him removed (that’s all true). Permutter IS profiting off of the films, and that means money in trump’s pockets. In the pockets of many republicans actually. I won’t give up my Marvel films and that makes me a hypocrite.

  4. Betsy says:

    Lightly hypocritical of him, but one we actively support through movie tickets (well, not me – I’m always a little unclear who belongs to what universe as I don’t do most super hero movies. Is Wonder Woman Marvel?) and the Hammers – are they baking soda? Or are they just private citizens?

    • MrsBanjo says:

      Wonder Woman is DC (Warner Brothers).

    • Valiantly Varnished says:

      Perlmutter isn’t Marvel Studios. He’s Marvel Entertainment. Not the same thing. And Armie and his family are oil tycoons.

      • MrsBanjo says:

        He’s ridiculous and needs to have several seats.

      • Mia4s says:

        @Valiantly I see you trying to use this argument throughout the thread (and I understand, I do, it sucks). But it’s not about who makes the decisions, it’s about who your money is going to and supporting. No Ike doesn’t make creative decisions on the movies, but he gets paid. Oh lord he gets seriously PAID. That’s the reality. You honestly think he would have given over creative control without assuring his piece of the pie? Please.

        So yes, if you see Marvel movies, your money does go in some proportion to this guy. Sorry, but that’s the reality.

      • Valiantly Varnished says:

        @Mia4s if you want to have a conversation with me about this that’s fine. But your comment is condescending in the extreme hun.

      • Lexluthorblack says:

        @Valiantly If you really want to see these movies. Go see them. I don’t see how Mia4s is condescending.

      • Valiantly Varnished says:

        @Lexblack well I DID find it condescending and since the comment was directed at me I can voice that.

      • Darla says:

        Mia is right though. It sits heavy on me, but she’s right.

      • Valiantly Varnished says:

        @Darla and I disagree. And if this is your litmus test for Trump supporters then I suggest you take a large garbage bag and start filling it up with stuff from all over your house. Look at the shareholder list of ANY publicly traded company that you use products by or whose services you use. I can GUARANTEE you will find at LEAST one Trump supporter. I am all for boycotting brands whose owners directly support Trump and donate to him. But this isn’t what we are talking about here. You can’t police an entire shareholder or investor list for MAGA lovers. I personally would rather spend my time and energy in more effective ways.

      • Darla says:

        ^^^ did you just call someone else condescending? LOL

      • Valiantly Varnished says:

        @darla yeah that was a bit condescending. I can admit that. I don’t like feeling like I’m being lectured by anyone who isn’t my Mother. No one does. Especially when the subject is something I feel strongly about to begin with. I am a Black Muslim woman. People in my life have felt the effects of Trump and his policies and the racism of his supporters. It’s a very real thing to me.

    • boredblond says:

      He’s the great grandson of Armand Hammer, who was the $$$head of a petroleum co…no connection to the baking soda people. (seriously, no one thinks that, right?) When I posted this about the marvel guy/trump luv last week, crickets..

  5. BlueSky says:

    I do think he has a chip on his shoulder and I tend to think he’s bitter because he’s not a big movie star. I think he’s salty that his sad little “Lone Ranger” movie failed to launch as a franchise.
    As I said on the Stephen Ross post, I’m really not surprised that rich white dudes support him. Billionaires don’t want to pay more taxes.

  6. Valiantly Varnished says:

    Whatever. Armie needs to have all of the seats. His own MOTHER is a Trump supporter. She posts about it on her IG page and Armie has even LIKED some of her pro-Trump posts. He’s full of s*it and frankly I’m finding his “I’m woke” schtick tiresome. Dude is the great grandson of an oil tycoon. If this was coming from anyone other than Armand Douglas Hammer I’d take it seriously. But it’s not. And he can go talk to him Mom if he wants to call people out.

    • Stephanie says:

      Armie is a mess.

    • oliphant says:

      totally agree. he is mediocre white bread and needs to take ALL the seats.

    • Talie says:

      I was gonna say, he comes from a billionaire family and his mother is way into MAGA life. Like his mom and his wife’s family are big southern money on top of the Hammer money.

    • Babs1986 says:

      So he needs to take a seat for saying marvel is run by a trump supporter/doner? But if he wasn’t speaking out then he’d a male with the privilege not doing anything. Also, do want him to boycott his mother? What should he do?

      • Valiantly Varnished says:

        Actually Marvel ISNT run by a Trump donor. And that’s the whole point. Perlmutter doesnt run Marvel Studios. He’s basically an in name only head of of Marvel Entertainment. Two different entities. He has literally no say in Marvel Studios films and the TV division of Marvel is run directly by Disney now. He doesn’t own any of Marvel. So what Armie tweeted was not only hypocritical but a complete misrepresentation.

      • Lightpurple says:

        Except the MCU cut the Trump supporter loose in 2015. He could try some accuracy. Instead, he is pretty much making sure that Kevin Feige and Disney never hire him for anything.

      • Mia4s says:

        Not run by no, but yes Ike makes money off these movies. So we are seeing improvements in inclusivity and diversity…but yeah unfortunately some of the money is still going to a rather unfortunate beneficiary. Disney’s done a GREAT job of pushing his presence out but of COURSE he still gets paid! 😂

      • Valiantly Varnished says:

        @Mia4s I work in the financial industry so I know how shareholding, profit sharing, etc works. You cannot police every investor’s political donations. That is a VERY slippery slope. Everything you buy or use that is publicly traded probably has someone involved that is a Trump supporter and it’s naive to think otherwise. I personally would rather spend my time boycotting owners of brands like SoulCycle and the Chicago Cubs owners who DO make profit DIRECTLY from their businesses.

      • Darla says:

        Is that because you don’t patronize SoulCycle or the Cubs?

      • Valiantly Varnished says:

        @Darla lol. Ive been aware of the Cubs being Trump supporters for awhile now. I live in Chicago. And it’s one of the reasons why I actively campaigned to make sure that the company I work for never has another employee event at Wrigley Field. And since I am the one in charge of events I’ve been pretty successful on that score. So no…I don’t patronize the Cubs. As for Soulcycle. That place has always been weird and cult-like and has never seen a dime of my money and never will.

      • Lizzie says:

        he’d sell his left nut to be in a marvel movie.

    • anon says:

      He’s said multiple times he doesn’t support his mother opinions and he doesn’t take his family’s money. Not so sure about the second but the first was a bif deal during CMBYN promo, his mother didn’t even watch the movie and he said it. She sounds like a bitch but he has different opinions.

  7. TheOriginalMia says:

    It’s been known for years about Perlmutter. There were rumors that he was the reason why there was so little diversity in the MCU. And now that he’s slunk back into his cave, the 4th phase is non-Caucasian centered stories.

    I’ve been wondering too if Armie was up for a role and didn’t get it. He seems really salty about Marvel.

    • Valiantly Varnished says:

      Perlmutter was pit out to pasture in regards to Marvel Studios. He now is just Marvel Entertainment and those are two different entities at this point. But yes he was still in charge up until Age of Ultron I believe. Kevin Feige HATED him and basically said it’s either me or him and so Marvel Studios was taken out of Perlmutter’s oversight.

      • TheOriginalMia says:

        I thought he was the reason why Black Panther wasn’t introduced earlier in the MCU. But I wasn’t sure and didn’t want to get jumped on. But yeah, Feige hates him. Marvel Studios was right to choose Feige over that schmuck.

    • Eye.candy says:

      If I recall correctly, he was auditioning for the role of captain america, but the casting manager and production team wanted Evans for the role (thank god for that).
      and just me guessing here, maybe he was up for the role of Ikaris in the upcoming Eternals movie, he is physically very similiar to the guy in the comics, some people actually “dream cast” him but the role eventually went to Richard madden.

  8. Dutch says:

    Perlmutter has a role at Marvel in name only these days. He made his dough with Toy Biz, which purchased a chunk of Marvel when Marvel was nearly bankrupt in the 90s. We was able to gain a position of authority during the Marvel-Disney merger, and was a big reason why it took so long for a female-fronted hero movie (Ike believes that female characters didn’t move enough merch). Sometime after the success of Avengers, Feige won a power play that removed Perlmutter from any involvement with Marvel Studios, and Ike was put in charge of the TV division (essentially the Netflix shows). He’s basically powerless now the Netflix shows are dead and as far as I can tell the Disney+ shows are being handled by Marvel Studios. So good job Armie, for burning a bridge for no reason.

    • Jc says:

      And the difference is ownership, I don’t think he owns any of Marvel anymore whereas Equinox is owned by the MAGA donor.

    • Babs1986 says:

      He makes money from the movies.

    • Valiantly Varnished says:

      Exactly. I think Armie is salty that he isn’t a big star like he thought he would be. But that’s what happens when you’re an entitled rich kid used to getting everything you want.

      • xo says:

        the media/industry actively fueled his expectations there for awhile. . .

        he didn’t dream the dream alone.

    • Lightpurple says:

      Abigail Disney has a lot more say than Perlmutter now and Abigail Disney is awesome

  9. Mo says:

    Yeah, Perlmutter is an asshole who never created any Marvel content, just held everybody else back because he invested a lot of money when times were bad. He was all about the toys and merchandise. As many people pointed out, this is a dude who was basically complaining about the fact that he couldn’t sell dolls to girls.

    That said, it is a serious problem. The advertising industry bases a huge amount of its marketing to men on misogyny. “These are boy toys!” Then when women notice that they like these products too, and buy them, there is no where for the marketing to go without these men, who have been catered to with “boys” products and marketing, feeling attacked.

  10. mk says:

    Remember when Les Moonves said “”It may not be good for America, but it’s damn good for CBS” when CBS and others gave all that free media exposure during the last presidential campaign? Same thing. It may not be good for America, but Isaac Perlmutter doesn’t give a sh** about America, only himself/Marvel.

  11. lucy2 says:

    I don’t see any issue without pointing out anyone who is supporting him. But Armie does seem to have a bug up his butt about Marvel for some reason.

    That’s pretty gross his mother is a supporter, but I’m not surprised.

  12. Algernon says:

    I think Armie is salty because he was going to be Batman in George Miller’s cancelled Justice League movie. He has seemed particularly irritable about superhero movies ever since then.

  13. holly hobby says:

    I actually knew Perlmutter (gee he sounds like the ME from Castle – shout out to Castle fans) as a MAGGAT. Earlier this year there was a scandal about how some Mara Gag Go members (gang of 4 to be precise) were illegally running the Dept of Veterans Affairs. Perlmutter was one of them and some kind of dr and two other rich club members. Not sure what happened with this because the press sort of stopped reporting it but they were all under investigation at one point.

    Hammer was correct in calling Perlmutter out. As for calling out his folks, well I have a few relatives who support the racist in chief (surprisingly) this is a little trickier to do.

    • Valiantly Varnished says:

      But are you liking their pro-MAGA tweets??

      • holly hobby says:

        My relatives are too old to tweet but thanks for the inquiry. Gee, you can’t even state a fact without some kind of inquisition. Don’t tell me everyone doesn’t have a relative who isn’t a supporter (or brainwashed by Fox and the minority media – you’d be very surprised what’s left off in the translation of English news reports).

      • Darla says:

        Yes but I don’t follow them on twitter, or even have them as facebook friends. So I wouldn’t be liking any of their Maga isht. And, further, I barely even speak to them in real life, so…try again?

      • Valiantly Varnished says:

        @holly hobby. The entire point of my reply flew right over your head. Which is that Armie IS liking his mother’s pro-Trump tweets and posts. No one is telling him to disown his mother. But he also doesn’t have to be actively complicit by liking her posts.
        That coupled with comments he himself has made in the past leads me to believe that Armie himself is a Trump supporter and has just been really good at hiding it.
        And no – I don’t have any family members who are Trump supporters. My family is BLACK and MUSLIM. So yeah…don’t mind me for not having any tolerance for Trumpers.

      • Sarah says:

        It’s his mother. Ease up.

      • Kebbie says:

        @Holly Armie liked a tweet by his mom about how she voted and hashtagged it #maga. VV was pointing out the hypocrisy of Armie.

      • Valiantly Varnished says:

        @Darla lol. I wasn’t even replying to you. I was directly responding to holly hobby’s comment above. So your family’s social media presence has no bearing on my comment. A comment which btw – you actually AGREED with below. But clearly you want to reply to every comment I’ve made and pick a fight so go off. Im going to lunch.

      • Darla says:

        That reply was to holly hobby not to you, I do not disagree with you on this particular subject.

  14. Pixie says:

    I actually didn’t know this, so good for Armie that he is using his platform to at least spread a little awareness. Like most people, I’m not exactly a fan of his but I have no snark about this. This was a good thing, and I hope it will make people think twice about putting money in the pocket of Marvel Entertainment.

    • Valiantly Varnished says:

      Don’t pat him on the back for this disingenuous tweet. Please. He KNOWS that Marvel Entertainment and Marvel Studios are two different entities but didn’t feel the need to clarify this.

      • Pixie says:

        Meh..I think it served a purpose. Plus, he did specify Marvel Entertainment in his original tweet. I have no idea what his political ideology is, and I suspect most people don’t know either. So, I’m here for anyone calling attention to these asshole billionaires hiding behind big corporations.

  15. Pixie says:

    Also, I just remembered that Armie tweet where he thought he discovered the Iran Contra affair for the first time, IN 2018. Hilaaaaarious

  16. Cindy says:

    … are people for real about calling out his parents? You understand the difference there is between cancelling a stranger and cancelling your mom, right? I believe Armie is not a Trump supporter but I can understand if he doesn’t want his parents getting death threats and harrassment (let’s not act like it’s just Trump supporters who do that).

    Does it sound sligtly hypocritical of him? Maybe. Is it completely absurd and irrational to demand Armie treat his parents the same way he would a total stranger? Absolutely.

    That being said, I totally do think this was in part motivated by Armie’s salt over never getting a superhero role. I almost feel bad for him sometimes, he tries to happen so hard but he just doesn’t. But then I remember he’s a mediocre actor and that the industry isn’t missing out on anything and I’m like eh.

  17. Ferdinand says:

    I have a soft spot for Armie. I like him just fine and I’ve seen everything he’s in.

    As for what he says; his wife m’s always said she thinks he has front lobe damage as he says and does strange things all the time without thinking ahead.

    As for his mother, we’ve been knew for long time that his mother is MAGA. The woman didn’t even watch Call Me By Your Name because of the “gay agenda”. If you can’t see the movie your son starred in just because nonsense beliefs, there’s something wrong with you.

    • Kebbie says:

      Wait, what? Armie has frontal lobe damage? According to his wife?

      He has a very caustic way of speaking or something that I think turns people off.

  18. Lena says:

    I think it is a bit hypocritical If people boycott equinox or soul cycle while going to Marvel movies so I see what he’s saying. Perlmutter gets paid as chairman of marvel entertainment whether or not he has anything to do creatively with it. Seems like people are tying themselves into pretzels to deny this. And you can’t boycott your parents or family members over their political beliefs lets be real. That’s a slippery slope.

    • Darla says:

      Well, I would never like their MAGA tweets though. So stop.

    • DS9 says:

      Yes, yes you can.

      I know plenty of people who can and do, people who have maga parents and black husbands, biracial children, gay sons, and trans daughters,

      At minimum, they challenge the false narratives and outright lies these family members post, sometimes gently but other times boldly.

      I’ve watched my 50 year old friend’s friend list dwindle because she’s vocally not the one anymore. She just doesn’t want to be nazi adjacent.

  19. Lena says:

  20. SM says:

    If people are boycotting gyms because the owner is a Trump supporters, it is fair that people also consider other donors of Trump and rethink their relationship to businesses and products these donors have/suggest. Also you can not choose your own mother but you can choose the movie you go to (because by that logic a hell of a lot of people would have to cut someone out of their family because of different politics). Just sayin’ there is nothing to be angry about here or outraged at AH tweet. Armie may be inconsistent or problematic at times but in this case there is no need to jump at him.

    • Darla says:

      Arnie is likely a closet Maga. Stop.

      • Cindy says:

        What makes you think that? That… he liked a tweet by his mom?

      • Tiffany :) says:

        Darla, you’re wrong about AH being a MAGA. He said in a video for Vanity Fair that he’d move out of the country if Trump won (in 2016, before election). He’s said stupid things before, but he’s been pretty consistent about his opposition to Trump.

        Also…telling other commenters to “Stop” is pretty rude and limits discussion.

  21. Thea says:

    The guy is part of marvel entertainment which does comics and toys. Marvel studios which does films are part of Disney. Does he make money off of the films? I thought they were separate entities now.

    I know it’s tricky to publicly call our family members, but does AH (who was part of that racist piece of garbage – Lone Ranger) need to like his mom’s multiple maga posts? I have an aunt who is gung-ho about drumpf (she is the definition of low information voter who just votes straight republican. She also misogynistic who said American wasn’t ready for a female president), but guess who had a word with her and f-ing called out her aunt? Me! She doesn’t make maga posts, but if she did, I would definitely not like them.

    During the election, I remember Armie saying that if drumpf won, it wouldn’t make a difference. Yeah, it wouldn’t make a difference for a rich, white, straight, cisgender male. 🙄

    • Valiantly Varnished says:

      Thank you! People don’t seem to be getting this. On either point. No one is telling him to disown his mother. But he’s LIKING her tweets and posts while wagging his finger about Trump donors. You can’t have it both ways
      I have always suspected Armie was a low-key Trump supporter based on comments he’s made in the past and for me this kind of seals the deal. I dont think his calling out Perlmutter was some big Resist move. I think he was doing what a LOT of Trump supporters do which is play the whataboutism game.

      • Darla says:

        Yes I think he WAS likely playing the whatabout game. But I disagree that Perlmutter isn’t profiting from Marvel movies.

    • Nadira says:

      Perhaps Hammer just wants to get in the good graces of certain voters?

      And regarding the industrial-military complex I think it doesn’t make a difference if there is a democratic or republican president. The industrial-military complex still sucks up way too much taxpayer money. Did you know that the military marching bands alone do cost $ 500 Mio!!! That is crazy. Half a billion dollars just for marching bands and music and entertainment.

  22. Cat says:

    How is it any of his business? Who tells their boss or anyone, how to spend their own money? If you don’t like it, work elsewhere.

  23. Molly says:

    Why are there people on this thread who defend Marvel so ardently?

    • Kebbie says:

      Because they have a large fan base?

    • Mia4s says:

      It’s the social phenomenon these days of people taking on fandom as part of their identity. (And yeah there are a few in this thread! LOL!!). Any hint that the object (literally) of their affection is less than above reproach and it’s treated like a personal insult. Then they quickly run to the defense of (in this case)…*checks notes*…..Disney…..Yep poor defenseless Disney.

      Well if it makes them feel better this probably isn’t in the top five of problematic things about Disney or Marvel and their business practices. And I saw End Game in theaters. So yeah Ike got a bit of my cash…and that sucks. I don’t have any problem with Armie pointing it out. Weird hill for him to die on, but OK.

  24. Nadira says:

    Marvel Entertainment did probably donate money to both candidates. So that they would be on the winning side anyway. Many big companies use this strategy.

      I don’t think anyone is saying Marvel donated to any political side. Just that one of their billionaire chairmen donated his personal money to Trump.

    I need more background information for the people who say you can’t cut off family.

    I’m guessing these are all cis white folks who don’t have relatives, close friends, and significant others targeted by Trump’s low carb nazi bullshit.

    I’ve cut off my dead father’s brother, ffs.

    There’s politics and then there’s hate speech and the enabling of every ism that endangers.

    If anyone wants a good article on Marvel Entertainment vs. Marvel studios, here it is, it was written in 2018, so no bias in it.

    Didn’t a buzzfeed article come out in the past about armie being cast in a superhero movie that fell through way before he became a name as an actor? Was that marvel?

    Oh, his woke act needs to stop. He’s a nepotism baby from an oil rich southern family. Cis white male, take the seat. Stop applauding rich white men for bare minimum.

    Most people are not Marvel/Disney stans defending Marvel/Disney, they’re just pointing out how pathetic Arnie’s attempts at activism are. He’s so thirsty, lol.

    He has a chip on his shoulder when it comes to Marvel in particular. I wonder if it’s related to a role he didn’t get or something.
