Earlier this week, Armie Hammer had the internet thinking: “Damn, you were a lot more fun when you were eating peaches and dancing to The Psychedelic Furs” after he came for celebrities posting memorial selfies with the late Stan Lee. Armie held firm that if you posted a picture of yourself with Stan Lee, you were tacky and self-absorbed, and he was above all that. Enough people must have called him by his new nickname (aka Asshat, which we’ll get to in a moment), because he’s now very sorry.
One of the people who wasn’t having Armie’s smug sentiment was Jeffrey Dean Morgan. Jeffrey tweeted, and later deleted, a response to Armie that read:
“Looks like you found a way to use others ways of mourning and their memories to draw some attention to yourself. You sound like a real asshat.”
Ah, the ol’ asshat switcheroo. Armie was mad that everyone was making Stan Lee’s death about themselves, which he in turn managed to make it all about himself. I don’t know if getting called out by Jeffrey Dean Morgan was the straw that broke the bitchy camel’s back, but Armie deleted his original tweet, and yesterday he tweeted the following apology:

At least Armie has a sense of humor about the whole “asshat” thing. Then again, that might be a defense mechanism, considering Jeffrey is Negan from The Walking Dead, and nobody wants to piss that dude off. But as for Armie’s alleged poor Twitter impulse control, I don’t think he needs to work very hard on that. Personally, I think he just needs to channel his impulse control in a different way. Like instead of hissing at people on Twitter, he could be tweeting half-naked selfies at 1am. That way, we all win.
