It’s been a long few days for Armie Hammer after reports broke indicating he may have sent some (unconfirmed) texts while still married about sexual cannibalism and other taboo topics. Hammer and his wife have since split. She took their kids to the Cayman Islands for quarantine while he did construction, and now the Call Me By Your Name actor is in some hot water with the Cayman Islands Miss Universe Committee after a new social media post came to light.
How Armie Hammer Got Into Hot Water With The Miss Cayman Islands Universe Committee
Apparently, Armie Hammer is one of those not-so-rare celebrities to have a private social media account. Unfortunately for the actor, he let someone in who then took screenshots of the account and got them to The Daily Mail. In one of the posts, Armie Hammer had made a not-so-choice comment about his wife and Miss Cayman Islands, one he then apologized to Miss Cayman Islands for.
In the image and post published over the weekend, Armie Hammer had made a comment about his ex-wife Elizabeth Chambers refusing to bring their children back to the States. In the post, he shared an image of a woman sprawled out on a bed in sexy lingerie. Her face is not visible, but it was accompanied with the comment:
Well… my ex (for very good reason) wife is refusing to come back to America with my children. So I have to go back to Cayman… which sucks. Except there are a few silver linings. Like fucking Ms. Cayman again while I’m down there.
Once the post broke wide, the Miss Cayman Islands Universe Committee was none too happy about what transpired and wrote to the Cayman Compass, noting:
The Committee is very disturbed by the video and would like to confirm that the woman is not the reigning Miss Cayman Islands and has no affiliation to the Miss Cayman Islands Universe pageant.
The woman pictured in the post in question was not the current Miss Cayman Islands Mariah Tibbetts, whose platform through her tenure has been to raise awareness about cancer and work with the Cayman Islands Cancer Society. Her public posts on Instagram often reference God and a feeling of optimism, with a recent post about 2021 noting:
Armie Hammer Seemingly Confirms He Created The Miss Cayman Post In Public Apology
Unlike the previous posts that have been tied to Armie Hammer running around, Hammer has not called the post about Miss Cayman “bullshit.” Instead, he actually sent the Cayman Compass an audio segment that apologized for his role in the post of sexual nature rolling around. He called what happened a “foolish attempt” at comedy on social media, stating:
I would like to clarify that the person in my video, which was stolen from my private Instagram, is not Miss Cayman. I am genuinely sorry for any confusion my foolish attempt at humor may have caused.
This is not the first time Armie Hammer has apologized for a comment that didn't go over as well as expected; he'd also previously apologized after making a critical comment about Stan Lee following his death. In this case, the Miss Cayman Islands Universe Committee had also requested that Armie Hammer remove the offending post and any posts of similar nature from his personal social media. It’s unclear if he complied with the request, but we do know the matter was handed over to the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service to investigate.
We’ll be sure to keep you updated if any related news breaks. Meanwhile, Armie Hammer has quit the acting gig in Jennifer Lopez’s movie Shotgun Wedding he had coming up while he deals with the outcome of the alleged posts that have been attributed to him that have been rolling around the Internet. I’d guess that potentially dealing with the Royal Cayman Islands Police on top of the cheating allegations and more were not how the actor anticipated spending the next few weeks.
