[Warning: Potentially Triggering Content]
Was Armie Hammer‘s interview over the weekend the emotional plea of a person who’s put within the work to work previous his demons and heal? Or a clear try to control public notion so he is usually a film star once more?
We actually know which his accuser Effie Angelova believes. The lady behind the HouseOfEffie social media accounts was the primary to out Armie by releasing the DMs during which he talked about cannibalism and sexual assault. She was additionally the one who accused him of rape. Not emotional abuse, not having tough kinks. Rape.

So naturally Effie wasn’t too impressed with the interview during which he claimed he was able to “personal” his “errors” and “take accountability” — but additionally denied any and all actions that crossed the road into breaking the legislation. So she tore it aside piece by piece — and in contrast to Armie, who claimed his DMs would exonerate him, she offered the receipts!
The Lone Ranger star instructed Air Mail on Saturday that the whole lot was consensual, that the rape was truly a “consensual non-consent scene” that they mentioned at size beforehand. However that doesn’t appear to be the case in these messages between them that she posted on Twitter. She appears genuinely upset as he laughs about her ache. (Be warned, these are fairly graphic…)

Unsure if these exonerate him in any respect, a lot much less in half a second…
He additionally claimed she was the one who taught him about rape play! Effectively, if she was the one who bought him into rape fantasies, why does she have a DM during which he is the primary to convey it up, asking her if she’s into it?!
Yeah, doesn’t look good.
And about that story about his alleged suicide try? He instructed Air Mail that within the midst of this big scandal, early in 2021, the whole lot was weighing down on him, and the stress was simply an excessive amount of. And in the future whereas on the seaside within the Caymans, he thought of ending issues:
“I simply walked out into the ocean and swam out so far as I may and hoped that both I drowned or was hit by a ship or eaten by a shark. Then I spotted that my children had been nonetheless on shore, and that I couldn’t try this to my children.”
However in keeping with Effie, Armie instructed her this very same story about strolling into the ocean — solely it was BEFORE she went public with the DMs.
In a collection of tales she defined that she was speaking with Armie about how a lot he damage her, and he was telling her how sorry he was. Then he instructed her the ocean story, and it made her sympathetic!
“It made me so fearful about him, he made me really feel unhealthy for telling him his abuse messed me up and it made me wish to deal with him as a substitute.”
Yep. This was in August 2020 — she even shared a few of the DMs from that point. That was pre-scandal! However the self-harm story labored to garner sympathy. Now Effie thinks Armie is aware of it really works and is making an attempt it on a grander scale, making an attempt to get the general public again on his aspect by making everybody fearful about him! She wrote:
“Now he claims his ocean story occurred after I spoke out publicly. It appears so manipulative as a result of he is aware of his ocean story shut me up final time and evoked sympathy and it’s like now he’s making an attempt it once more. I feel on some degree he feels responsible.”
Yeesh. If that’s true, if he actually used a faux “suicide” story simply to get sympathy so everybody would forgive him for these terrible deeds, that’s simply so despicable! Clearly the interviewer couldn’t precisely fact-check whether or not Armie walked out into the ocean or what he was pondering. However they may have reached out to Effie and gotten her aspect of the rape fantasy stuff. They could even have stumbled onto her information of the “ocean story” origin. It seems like they didn’t attempt to interrogate Armie’s model of occasions in any respect…
Might that be the rationale he selected Air Mail, an outlet we’d frankly by no means heard of, as a substitute of, say, Folks or another large outlet? As Effie additionally hinted at in her tales, Air Mail was based by former Self-importance Honest editor Graydon Carter — somebody who isn’t precisely a stranger to controversy on the subject of together with the attitude of victims. The EIC was answerable for VF in 2003 when allegations of sexual misconduct had been disregarded of an exposé on Jeffrey Epstein! Apparently reporter Vicky Ward had interviewed two younger ladies on the time who had been accusing Epstein. One in every of them, Annie Farmer, was one of many 4 victims who testified in opposition to Ghislaine Maxwell! However Carter eliminated them from the ultimate copy? Ward contends that Carter had a “bromance” with Epstein and was making an attempt to guard him. Final 12 months, she launched her personal transcripts from the time during which Carter allegedly instructed her abuse of an underage lady was “not that earth-shattering.”
Did Armie select that exact magazine to inform his story, understanding what he may get away with speaking to them? Hmm.
Effie had lots extra to say on the matter. You could find her total, thorough debunking of Armie’s interview in her IG Story highlights HERE. As for Armie, we’re positively going to need to be much more cynical on the subject of his public statements sooner or later…
