Armie Hammer is stepping away from a lead role in JLo’s upcoming movie “Shotgun Wedding,” after accusations of being a cannibal surfaced on Instagram last week.
Yes, you did just read that. And no, the cannibalism claim hasn’t been proven.
Last week, the anonymous Instagram account House of Effie posted dozens of screenshots of DMs, allegedly from Hammer, that span the past four years. The DMs include descriptions of sexual fantasies, domination, and rape, as well as cannibalism and even an admittance of being a cannibal.
The authenticity of these DMs and the allegations haven’t been proven, but House of Effie has tried to bolster their veracity by releasing supposedly never before seen pictures of Hammer (like of his hand…).

Hammer has denied the claims insofar as he has refused to acknowledge their credence. However, he is walking away from his lead role in Jennifer Lopez’s upcoming film Shotgun Wedding.
His statement reads, "I'm not responding to these bulls--- claims, but in light of the vicious and spurious online attacks against me, I cannot in good conscience now leave my children for 4 months to shoot a film in the Dominican Republic. Lionsgate is supporting me in this and I'm grateful to them for that."

The Daily Mail reported that Hammer’s ex, writer Jessica Ciencin Henriquez, 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."
Anyone else getting Amber Heard and Johnny Depp vibes from that statement?
Hammer and his wife of 10 years, Elizabeth Chambers, filed for divorce in July 2020 following quarantining as a family in the Caribbean. Chambers has requested primary custody of their two children, daughter Harper, 6, and son Ford, 3.
