Armie Hammer is not afraid to respond to his critics.
The “Call Me By Your Name” star was the subject of a long BuzzFeed article over the weekend, examining his last ten years in Hollywood.
The article looked at his path, from being cast as Batman in the scrapped “Justice League: Mortal”, to starring in “Gossip Girl” and “The Social Network”, and then being featured in a string of flops, including “The Lone Ranger”, “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.” and the troubled indie “The Birth of a Nation”.
BuzzFeed was not exactly kind to the 31-year-old actor, purporting that he has been given an unfair number of “chances,” and that “he and his publicity team have never given up trying to Make Armie Hammer Happen.”
The actor himself caught wind of the article and didn’t shy away from responding on Twitter, noting the article’s negative slant toward him and saying that he is “just a guy who loves his job.”
The writer of the article responded back to one of Hammer’s fans, admitting Hammer may not have been the most deserving target.
Meanwhile, Hammer’s fans got a kick out of the actor’s tweet.
Sadly for fans of the actor’s social media musings, Hammer deleted his Twitter account shortly after the fracas; his original tweets reference above no longer exist.
