Armie Hammer, the American actor, had been involved in scandals that had ranged from alleged graphic sexual messages to rape allegations. The actor came under fire in early 2021 after several women came forward posting screenshots of him directly messaging them about detailed fantasies of rape, mutilation, and cannibalism.

However, things for the star did not start going down the hill after the messages were made public. Armie Hammer has, for a long time been involved in scandals that can be traced as far back as the beginning of his career. Now, with the 35-year-old residing in the Caymans, rumors have started circulating relating to the actor working as a timeshare seller, and working as a hotel concierge.
Breaking Down Armie Hammer’s Pristine Facade
The Call Me By Your Name actor first claimed the spotlight when he portrayed the Winklevoss twins in the David Fincher biographical drama, The Social Network. His career, although fast-pacing toward a road to stardom, was also quickly becoming pockmarked with hackle-raising scandals. The 2017 BuzzFeed op-ed written by Anne Helen Peterson called “Ten Long Years Of Trying To Make Armie Hammer Happen” became a central focus of another long and drawn-out duel over social media platforms.
The grandson of an oil tycoon, Armie Hammer, infamously cited his proclivity toward BDSM in a 2013 Playboy magazine interview. In 2018, his insensitive tweet following the death of comic writer and legend Stan Lee also marked a lot of backlash for the actor. He later apologized for the incident although claiming that he did not feel bad for offending the people who were capitalizing on the death of Stan Lee by using it as an excuse for false grief.
The Alleged DMs That Ended The Career of Armie Hammer
In January 2021, Jessica Ciencin Henriquez (writer) and Paige Lorenz (model) publicly came forward with accusations of the actor’s disturbing behavior over Instagram messages. Following the incident, Hammer resigned from his then-movie project stating, “I’m not responding to these bulls–t claims, but in light of the vicious and spurious online attacks against me, I cannot in good conscience now leave my children for four months to shoot a film in the Dominican Republic.”
Two months later, in March of the same year, the actor was accused of violently raping Effie Angelova who came forward in a press conference saying the incident took place in LA in 2017. Following the allegations, Armie Hammer resigned himself to a residence in the Cayman Islands, and now, reports from TMZ have come up claiming the actor has been working as a timeshare seller in a local shop in the territory.

Although the rumors of Armie Hammer working as a timeshare seller has been debunked, this is not the first time such accusations have gone viral over the Internet. In July 2022, Andrew Brettler, an attorney, confirmed to Variety, following reports of the actor working as a hotel concierge that although the latter is a guest at the Grand Cayman Morritt’s Resort, he is not an employee there.
