Throughout the week, people on Twitter and Instagram have been talking about Armie Hammer and whether or not he’s a cannibal. I’m not joking. It turns out 2021 is just as bad as 2020. The backstory is that an Instagram user going by House of Effie began posting screenshots on her then-public Instagram. The screenshots were of her text messages/DMs with Armie, going back to 2016 and through 2020. The relationship was dominant/submissive, with Armie the dom. You can see screenshots of some of the NSFW messages here, including Armie’s alleged proclamation that he is “100% cannibal.” Here’s just a small part of what he was saying:
Armie Hammer reportedly said he ‘wanted to cut off’ his girlfriend’s toe and ‘keep it in his pocket’ according to new disturbing screenshots leaked by a woman who says the actor sent her vile Instagram messages about rape and cannibalism. The alleged messages, said to be sent between October 2016 and February 2020, include conversations about BDSM, in addition to numerous sexual references to cannibalistic acts and ‘blood-sucking’.
The authenticity of the screenshots has not yet been verified, however the woman behind the House of Effie account shared new alleged correspondences with Hammer on Tuesday, in which he appeared to refer to her as his ‘slave’.
‘You just live to obey me and be my slave,’ a message purported to have been sent from Hammer’s official Instagram account reads. ‘I will own you. That’s my soul. My brain. My spirit. My body. Would you come and be my property till you die?’ The message continues: ‘If I wanted to cut off one of your toes and keep it with me in my pocket so I always had a piece of you in my possession?’
It comes as one of Hammer’s exes, writer Jessica Ciencin Henriquez, has spoken out saying she believes the shocking messages ‘are real’, and later wrote: ‘It takes an army to hide a predator’ in reference to the allegations.
In a second alleged exchange of undated messages shared by House of Effie, Hammer allegedly writes: ‘I feel like the same way you are on one side of the slave spectrum, I Am on the other side of the master spectrum and I can’t ever imagine another slave. You are mine and I am yours. No matter what happens. And we’ve tested each other to the extremes.’
Granted, I’m not deep into BDSM culture, but from what little I do know of it, the messages seem like pretty typical dom/sub role play and while people are focusing on Armie’s messages, this particular woman he’s messaging is very into it. I’m not saying that there aren’t toxic, abusive elements to Armie’s whole deal, but in this narrow circumstance with this particular woman, reading through the text messages, all I really got was that two adults were enthusiastically consenting to be in a BDSM relationship. Meanwhile, “sources close to Elizabeth Chambers” are speaking to the Mail:
Armie Hammer’s estranged wife is ‘shocked and sickened’ by the actor’s alleged messages that discuss rape fantasies, BDSM and cannibalism and ‘believes’ the women stepping forward, a close friend exclusively told DailyMail.com. The alleged messages date back to 2016 and some are as recent as February 2020, a time period where Hammer, 34, was still married to his wife Elizabeth Chambers, 38.
The two announced their 10-year marriage was over in July, as a source close to Chambers admitted she was aware of his infidelities, including being romantically involved with Lily James as DailyMail.com revealed last year, which led to their split. But Hammer’s alleged extreme kinks are a ‘complete shock’ to the mother-of-two, with the friend adding: ‘Armie appears to be a monster. 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. 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.’
The insider claims that one of the women who contacted Chambers about her experience with Hammer was left so traumatized that she entered an ‘intense rehab and therapy program because of his emotional and maybe physical abuse. 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.’
Yeah… so was Elizabeth blindsided or had Armie’s other women come to her throughout their marriage? Plus, people f–king knew that Armie has always been kinky. There have been widespread rumors about his BDSM lifestyle and interests for years, including sh-t he liked on social media. Honestly, I always thought that Armie and Elizabeth had that kind of relationship. Maybe they didn’t though, and Elizabeth is horrified. As for the one woman who apparently went to Elizabeth and said that what Armie did was emotional abuse, possibly physical abuse… yeah. I believe that too.
Update: Clearly, I have not seen all of the messages – the ones I linked to above were ones of just a consensual sub/dom relationship. I believe that Hammer has harassed and abused women.
