Armie Hammer Apologizes to Casey Affleck for Sexual Misconduct Double Standards Remarks

Armie Hammer is apologizing to Casey Affleck after he used the Oscar winner as an example of sexual misconduct in Hollywood.

In a recent interview, the 31-year-old Call Me By Your Name star compared the 42-year-old Manchester by the Sea actor’s past sexual assault allegations to Birth of a Nation director Nate Parker‘s own sexual misconduct allegations, before saying Nate faced harsher treatment and backlash than Casey.

“I would like to sincerely apologize to Casey and his family for my recent comments about him in my THR interview,” Armie said statement via The Hollywood Reporter. “Without knowing the facts about the civil lawsuits at issue (which I now understand were settled), I misspoke.”

“I conflated sexual harassment cases with a criminal case involving sexual assault charges. The cases in which Casey was involved were not criminal and instead involved civil claims from his 2010 movie I’m Still Here. While intending to make a social comment about double standards in general, I mistakenly compared reports of prior, public civil allegations that never proceeded to trial with a criminal case that was fully tried. I understand now that this was a poor comparison, which I deeply regret making. I also didn’t mean to insinuate, nor do I believe, that Casey or anyone from his camp had anything to do with leaked information that took place during the press for Birth of a Nation. I respect Casey’s work, and I’ve learned a valuable lesson about the need to be more accurate with disseminating information, especially in this age of instantaneous, unchecked communication. While attempting to be part of the solution, I unintentionally made myself part of the problem, for which I am truly sorry,” Armie said in his statement.

    Another case of an *sshole shooting off his big mouth without knowing the facts. Armie Hammer needs to crawl back into his hole.

  • Sansa Squad

    He shouldn’t have apologized, he was right about Casey!! And this is on the heels of him defending Roman Polanski too so like Armie…sweetie….what r u doing

  • Lisa

    What a coward!

  • HG

    I might be wrong, but do you think he’s trying to save face since he’s on a major campaign trail? Maybe his publicist told him to back track and not insult the Academy’s choice of Best Actor since he will need their votes.

  • Casey C

    100% going after that Oscar nom and if you’re a white man in the Academy, you can assault women and win but if you call someone out for it, you’re not getting close to it. AH knows this is the movie to actually build his career on, it’s legitimizing him as somehting other than the flop-whisperer, he wont risk something ruining that and his awards bid

  • Sansa Squad

    I think that’s a very good theory and you’re probably right

  • SquidBillie

    Affleck is a much bigger a**hole than Hammer is.

    What do the suits being settled have to do with anything? You don’t give settlements to people unless something happened! This thing with Casey Affleck is still very hush hush. Why? It seems like he is really apologizing to Ben Affleck, not Casey!

  • Rian Booth

    Yeah I’ve lost respect for him. This is just cowardly and obvious to save face for the Oscars or something.

  • Jett Rink

    Wimp

  • cafeast

    Yeah I suppose trashing the white man to defend his black rapist friend did not work out for our new Mr. sjw-who-had-movie-sex-with-some-kid-so-now-we-have-to-take-him-seriously-as-an-actor right before his oscar campaign.
    Typical.
    I am sure he’ll be on the streets screaming black lives matter (they really don’t btw, not those black lives) because Mr. Billionaire heir is such a progressive now!

  • cafeast

    I lost respect for him when he semi-defended that black rapist nate parker who gang-raped that white homeless girl when she was drunk unconscious, then bullied her into her suicide.

  • hugomastoc

    wow racism is still very much alive. Thanks for the reminder.

  • parisjok

    No,no, no ,no, he was RIGHT in what he said the first time!!!

  • parisjok

    yeah, it is a very good reason why his wife with his still minor children divorced him. she has known about his scandalous behind her back behavior with other actresses for a long time.

    this pay out to those actresses were her very last straw..

  • cutitout

    What he said was true in the first place.

    You do understand that if he implies false allegations on legal issues that were legally settled he might face a lawsuit? That’s all he is doing here, This was posibly what they demanded of him, A public ‘Apology’ otherwise he’d have to face legal consequences
    What Armie said at first was true, There’s a double standard and he did not backtracked on that…he backtracked on the allegations part because those could have legal undertones that might affect him.

  • Maria M.

    It’s a good thing he apologized. Casey was not tried for rape in a criminal court like Nate Parker and he shouldn’t compare them. I understand that Parker was found not guilty but so was O.J. Simpson. The moment you reach criminal trial your career is over no matter the outcome and it should be.
