Amid the controversy surrounding his graphic DMs, Armie Hammer has found himself in even more hot water.
On Sunday (January 17), Hammer released a statement in response to him referring to a lingerie-clad woman as "Miss Cayman" in a leaked video that was shared on his private Instagram account. "I would like to clarify that the person in my video, which was stolen from my private Instagram, is not Miss Cayman," Hammer kicked off. "I am genuinely sorry for any confusion my foolish attempt at humor may have caused. My deep sympathies to Miss Cayman, who I don't know, and to the entire organization, as I had no intentions of implying she was actually Miss Cayman."
Hammer's footage, which was shared by the Daily Mail, saw the actor speak about how his ex-wife Elizabeth Chambers is refusing to travel back to America with their children amid his backlash as an unidentified woman in lingerie shows her backside to the camera. "Well… my ex (for very good reason) wife [Elizabeth Chambers] is refusing to come back to america with my children. So I have to go back to Cayman… which sucks," Hammer captioned the post. "Except there are a few silver linings. Like f**king Ms. Cayman again while I'm down there."
The Miss Cayman Islands Universe Committee condemned Hammer's remarks, admitting they were "very disturbed by the video and would like to confirm that the woman is not the reigning Miss Cayman Islands and has no affiliation to the Miss Cayman Islands Universe pageant."
"The Committee and the reigning Miss Cayman [Mariah Tibbetts] regard this issue with the utmost seriousness and the matter has been reported to the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service (RCIPS)," their statement continued. "The role of Miss Cayman is in part, to serve as a role model to young Caymanian women. The depiction of the woman in the video goes against all that our organisation stands for and the Committee is consequently requesting that Mr. Hammer immediately remove all references to Miss Cayman from his social media channels."
