The series documents the allegations of abuse against Hammer, including one moment picked out by viewers on TikTok and other social media platforms.
With a photo of the alleged bite mark onscreen, Vucekovich says in the doc, “I think Armie took that picture. He bites really hard. And he tells you to wear them like a badge of honour, almost like he convinced me I’m lucky to have it.”
But as users pointed out, the photo is actually one found online of a bite-mark tattoo, not an actual bite.
“When you are love-bombed, you receive multiple images in rapid succession. During my time with Armie, I received numerous messages, including countless images and videos,” Vucekovich said in her statement responding to the issue. “The bite mark shown was a photo sent by Armie within our archived text thread and over a year later, I believed it to have been a photo of me given that I have dozens of photos depicting his abuse on my body.”
She added, “I have chosen to tell my story to shed light on what I experienced within my relationship in hopes others are not put in the same situation.”
