Armie Hammer Went On A Blocking Spree On Twitter After Criticism Of His Posts About The BLM Protests
The Caribbean’s most dedicated social justice warrior in the category of rich white people who fled the pandemic, Armie Hammer, has been wielding the block hammer on Twitter of late. It seems that while Armie has heard the message that now is the time to amplify Black voices, he’s not applying the principle in his activism.
According to ONTD, Twitter users have accused Armie of blocking fans who tried to argue with him, saying he is only listening to “people he respects and admires.” And over on Instagram, Armie lashed out with insults after he was criticized for highlighting “copoganda,” feel-good images of cops kneeling in front of protesters, on his Instagram stories. Armie it seems, was not content to just sit there and eat his conch stew.
Armie’s still in The Cayman Islands, we know this because last weekend he raised some eyebrows when he posted a video on himself drinking a beer on a golf course with cupping bruises on his back, leading some to believe he was having some sort of nervous breakdown.
But apparently, Armie ultimately pulled his head out of the sand-trap and #tooktotwitter to chime in on what’s been happening stateside.
Any white person going to the marches and protests should be doing NOTHING but walking and showing support. Stop fucking breaking shit. Stop fucking rioting, you slimy opportunists. You are doing more damage than good. For once, just sit there, shut up, and listen.

Then boldly and bravely, the man who implored white people to “for once, just sit there, shut up, and listen,” did just the opposite.

armie hammer has been sharing copoganda on his instagram story all week and when his fans (some of whom are Black themselves) tried to explain to him why it’s harmful to do so, he resorted to defensive, childish attacks and namecalling instead of trying to understand? pic.twitter.com/Y65Ewx3p2K

If you don’t want to click, here’s Armie’s response to accusations of blocking “black ppl who r sincerely trying to educate” him.
“Listen to faceless, anonymous accounts who’re on twitter expressly to talk shit? I’ll listen to people I respect and admire. The people I’ve been talking to this whole time and learning and growing from. The council I seek isn’t some Timmy Stan who have mult accounts to talk shit
OK, Black celebrities, which one of you has been counseling Armie on race relations? Nate Parker, is it you? “Timmy stans” of course refers to fans of peach creamer Timothée Chalamet, who, for whatever reason, Armie thinks are out to get him. Imagine feeling threatened by a Timmy Stan.

I can’t believe as thin-skinned as he is, Armie could even tolerate a poolside cupping session without bleeding out entirely. It truly boggles the mind.
