Armie Hammer pointed out how Robert Downey Jr had a big part in his journey to sobriety.

“There are examples everywhere, Robert [Downey Jr.] being one of them, of people who went through those things and found redemption through a new path. And that, I feel like, is what’s missing in this cancel-culture, woke-mob business. The minute anyone does anything wrong, they’re thrown away. There’s no chance for rehabilitation.”

He elaborated on how cancel culture can very easily stop people from getting the second chances they rightfully deserve. Hammer focused on how Downey would never have been able to rise in fame after he struggled with addiction had it not been for the availability of rehabilitation and support from all around him. To Hammer, Downey had been the support he had desperately needed.
