Armie Hammer Explains Why He Quit Twitter After Slamming Viral Buzzfeed Article

Armie Hammer quit Twitter this week after responding to the writer of a Buzzfeed article titled, “10 Long Years of Trying to Make Armie Hammer Happen,” which caused backlash.

“I just have no impulse control,” Armie said (via The Wrap). “So if somebody says something stupid, I couldn’t help but say something back, and then it just exploded. This is a toxic environment, and my life is way better off. It’s so funny — People are so addicted and into Twitter, it seems crazy that someone could walk away from it! They’re like, wait, he DELETED IT? It was actually really easy.”

Armie, who told the Buzzfeed writer that the article seemed “bitter AF,” is starring in the critically acclaimed film Call Me By Your Name, and he’s earning some Oscar buzz!

    The Streisand Effect.

    Nobody knew about this article, you’ve responded in a dramatic way, now everyone knows. But who cares really?

    He will get a supporting nom, maybe even win the Oscar. Then movie offer after movie offer. He’s receiving the best reviews of his career. Hot as can be for most ppl. He wins either way, big time.

    I see him as a big contender for Batman or Lantern. And he can become Guadagnino’s new muse, just like Tilda and Dakota before him.

    The article is garbage. Nobody heard of him before The Social Network in 2010 so how is that “10 Long Years”? He wasn’t starring in studio films for 10 years. His entire career is 10 years old. It’s malicious.

    Who cares if it’s been 10 years or longer. Do you stop working in your field if your not a star, he is still working away if he gets bigger and better role great but what was the point of the article besides to mock and belittle .

    Hollywood is different than other jobs. She was supposedly trying to say that if you have a few bombs in Hollywood you are finished. You will never get another studio offer. You can whether work on B genre movies that pay a few thousands or go back to waiting tables. Many people entirely disappeared, like Renee Zellweger. She even had an Oscar but few bombs buried her. Same with Halle Berry. They are still working but not with the studios, they are on Z list now. He only had two studio bombs where he has significant screen time, Lone Ranger and that was forgiven (because Johnny Depp was there too and it still bombed) but after The Man from U.N.C.L.E. bombed as well studio offers stopped. So he is being punished. He only got two chances at real stardom so far and he may not get a third one. The system is cruel to everyone not just women and minorities like she implies.

    Honestly, Dakota shouldn’t be anybody’s muse. She’s talentless.

  • cafeast

    She was not half bad in that movie she made with Luca – A Bigger Splash. Ironically enough, she does full frontal in that film, and not in those awful 50 shades films.

    Took Susan Lucci 19 years to win an Emmy. Just sayin’. And good on him for quitting Twitter.

    It wouldn’t be at all hard to come up with examples of women or probably even POC recovering or retaining good careers after series’ of flops.
