Armie Hammer Is Calling Out Celebrities Who Are Posting Photos of Themselves with Stan Lee

Armie Hammer is taking issue with celebrities who are posting photos of themselves with Stan Lee after his tragic death.

If you don’t know, Stan tragically passed away at the age of 95 on Monday (November 12), and many celebrities used photos of themselves with Stan to honor his legacy and pay tribute.

Armie tweeted, “So touched by all of the celebrities posting pictures of themselves with Stan Lee… no better way to commemorate an absolute legend than putting up a picture of yourself.”

He also added, “If Stan impacted your life (ie. All of our lives) with his work, post his work that touched you the most. Posting a selfie makes his death about you and how cool you felt taking a picture with him.”

    That’s messed up from Armie Hammer’s part. He has no right whatsoever to tell people how to grieve someone’s death. A-hole.

  • Jamie

    My thoughts exactly. What is WITH him?

  • namers

    When I hear his name, I think of Arm & Hammer baking soda.

  • la petite bonnieux

    Don’t be a douchebag mr hammer

  • plez

    How about birthdays Mr Hammer. Can I post a pic of me and my grandma on her birthday or is that me just being selfish and making it all about me?

  • greg

    Of course it is about the person who is remembering someone special with a picture when they were with that person. Grief is not for the dead but for the living who go on with the loss in their lives. A person is not defined by their works but by the people they touched along the way.

  • Silly People

    Armie Hammer just sounds like a dick.

  • Ally Woods

    Disagree. When I saw the pictures of people with Stan Lee, I didn’t think about THEM, but about what Stan Lee meant to them and to us. Stop trying to tell us what we’re supposed to think, Armie Hammer. Maybe that’s your jaded view of things, but not everyone is as grumpy as you.

    An idiot

    He was 95 Tragic? Did someone beat him to death or something?

  • skye3245

    This is why he has no fucking career..Thats like telling a fan “don’t post you met your hero,its invalid in your grief”. the fuck are you to tell ppl this. When ppl past even family they often post the moment they felt the most touched. Who wouldn’t wanna post that? So a celebrity(who is still a person I might add) shows the moment they met or encountered Stan. What is it to him? Maybe instead of telling others how to show appreciation or grieve or whatever, he shut up and work on that floundering career of his. This upsets me because how are you gonna tell ppl how to show their appreciation for a person at their passing. Some whack actor trying to be seen I’m guessing. Most media coverage he has had his whole career

  • Effy

    He’s probably mad no one asked him to be any Marvel heroes.

  • Dorothyfromoz

    Sounds like Armie Hammer isn’t in touch with why people do what they do. Maybe he is just sick of all the selfies all over the internet. Either way he needs to stop judging others so harshly. Stan Lee’s death wasn’t tragic, he lived to be 95. He lived a long and fulfilling life, he got to do what most people only dream of doing. I say, celebrate his life any way you wish, watch one of his movies, read one of his comics, or post a treasured selfie with him. Like one of the posters here said, grieve is for the living, the dead do not suffer the pains of loss.

  • Robert

    This was just lame and douchey coming from him.

    I’m seeing these pics these celebs are posting with Mr. Lee and not at all thinking about the celebs themselves, but instead imagining how it must have felt being in the presence of such a huge and important ICON.

  • MyName

    I understand his point and others’ too. Social media has become a way to get into the attention and become part of the story. It’s also a way of someone saying that they care. It usually depends on the type of person posting more than what or whom it’s about.

  • Casey C

    and yet armie is making Stan Lee’s death all about HIM. people are posting photos with SL beecause it happened to be a highlight in the career or life to have met him/worked with him. because they’re delighted they got a chance to meet someone they deeply respected. AH doesn’t get to police how people feel or grieve

  • Casey C

    tragic just means extremely distressing. for a those that knew someone or had their lives touched by them, it doesn’t necessarily matter if the person was 5 or 95, that loss is still a tragedy to them. yeah, he lived a long and full life, but he also meant a lot to a lot of people, so it can perfectly legimately be described as tragic

  • Kat

    He always was with his mediocre acting.

  • Gina

    What a pretentious jerk. Interestingly, based on that side-by-side photo, Armie could play a young Stan Lee in a bio pic. Guess that wouldn’t be happening anymore.

    Is this guy a self righteous ass or what!

  • JMMonroe

    I kinda see what he’s saying. But I agree with those who say he has no right to tell people how to think. I do believe today’s mindset is a little self involved, and that social media has made it so much easier to display that (and displaying many do). But to call people out in this way he is being kind of self serving, himself.

  • Ally Woods

    I agree that SM helps perpetuate people’s need to be self-involved. It’s pretty much the name of the game. I also agree that he’s being self-serving by making Stan Lee’s death about himself and his self-righteous attitude. There’s something odd about people’s need to tweet, post, blog about their every thought. Despite my taking the time to comment here…err, twice, I tend to let annoying things roll off me. So even if I did agree 100% with him, I can’t imagine making a tweet or several tweets about it. What for? Meh Move along, Armie. Move along.

    Who does he think he is? Obama? Liberal sanctimony ! LOL!
