Why do I get the feeling that someone on the internet is rushing to edit together a video of Armie Hammer dancing to Britney Spears’ “Toxic” at this very moment.
Armie Hammer deleted his Twitter account earlier this week after a BuzzFeed post made him feel bad feelings. It was a dark day for fans of Armie Hammer’s devastating social media burns. Armie spoke to TheWrap during a screening of Call Me By Your Name in Los Angeles on Tuesday night and was asked why he deleted his Twitter account.
According to Armie, the lure of Twitter is a dangerous siren for someone like himself who can’t control what he types when he gets all riled up. Armie thinks Twitter is a “toxic environment.”
“I just have no impulse control. 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.”
Twitter is many things. Yes, it can be an open sewer hole expelling turd gasses, but it’s also a place for laughs, so maybe Armie will go back one day. I’m sure all the Armie Wives (that’s probably what his fans are called) will be very happy when that happens. And they probably want it sooner than later. Hearing that Armie has zero impulse control definitely made them cross their fingers and pray that one of his impulses is to Tweet a pre-edited picture of his balls playing peekaboo out of the bottom of his shorts.
