If you noticed Armie Hammer was trending on Twitter yesterday, you probably weren't prepared for the reason why. The alleged leaks of his correspondence with several women are not only NSFW, but are extremely graphic in his apparent lust for blood. The actor, who recently announced his divorce from Elizabeth Chambers, went as far as to proclaim "I am 100% a cannibal."
The drama started when Instagram user @houseofeffie released a series of dms with the actor. Twitter user @tevinauguste cross-posted the exchanges, along with threads from other victims, in a very long and very damning thread. The series delves into Armie's interest in BDSM, and, of course, more references to blood and cannibalism.
While @houseofeffie has since claimed the messages were fake, the other victims have not admitted to any such foul play. After that admission, to make things more confusing, writer Jessica Ciencin Henriquez (who has been linked to Hammer in the past) tweeted "If you are still questioning whether or not those Armie Hammer DMs are real (and they are) maybe you should start questioning why we live in a culture willing to give abusers the benefit of the doubt instead of victims. TW// sexual violence."
For obvious reasons, we're not going to include the grisly DMs in this gallery. But you can easily find them through the links above. Instead, we're going to focus on all the Twitter reactions that cover our feelings on the matter, from disbelief, to stunned humor, all the way to disgust.
