The hunky actor fled from the social media site after slamming a Buzzfeed article that attributed his entire movie career to him being a privileged white man.
In her article, titled Ten Long Years Of Trying To Make Armie Hammer Happen, Anne Peterson questioned whether the Call Me By Your Name star’s career is due to him being “a beautiful pedigreed white man” who kept being offered work despite repeatedly starring in big screen flops.
Recounting Hammer’s roles over the years — from his acclaimed performance in The Social Network to the meh-ness of Lone Ranger — the senior culture writer argued the actor kept getting “second chances” because of his privileged background, skin color, and square jawline.
The 31-year-old, who was named after his oil tycoon great-grandfather Armand Hammer, didn’t take kindly to the “bitter AF” think piece — and was so distraught he committed social media suicide on Sunday.
Before dramatically deleting his account, Hammer posted one final tweet directed at Peterson, writing:
For that reason alone, we hope Hammer returns to Twitter eventually. Otherwise, that bitter AF writer wins.
