Armie Hammer is definitely not the hero we all deserve or need, and let’s be glad he hasn’t been cast as Green Lantern.
Following it learned yesterday that legendary creator Stan Lee had passed a way, a lot of fans and celebrities took to social media to mourn.
Fans and celebrities offered up their thoughts and experience about Stan Lee and posted pictures of themselves remembering the good times they shared with him.
I wrote an article remembering Stan Lee and posted pics of myself with him and the last image I photographed of him.
Well, following Stan Lee’s death, Armie Hammer took to social media to post a really stupid f’n comment.
“So touched by all of the celebrities posting pictures of themselves with Stan Lee… no better way to commemorate an absolute legend than putting up a picture of yourself,” Hammer posted on Twitter.
Sure enough, the tweet caused a fury of responses.
Maybe that was Armie Hammer’s intention all along? To draw attention to himself?
Better yet, Hammer should have just kept quiet and let the fans and celebrities celebrate the life of Stan Lee in their own way.
But of course he couldn’t do that.
Say hi to Tonto from us, Armie.
So touched by all of the celebrities posting pictures of themselves with Stan Lee… no better way to commemorate an absolute legend than putting up a picture of yourself.

Aaaaaaaand just by telling people how to grieve, you’ve made this wonderful man’s passing, all about you. I’m a fan of yours 100%, but this was just not right. Also some of those “celebrities” are your friends. And human beings. pic.twitter.com/FVzblhTWwK

Don’t hurt yourself falling off your high horse Armie. Like seriously chill and let people grieve the passing of someone the way they want/need to without coming across as judgemental and harsh.

I’m not a ‘celebrity,’ but here’s a picture commemorating an absolute legend, with me in it.
I felt really cool taking a picture with him. pic.twitter.com/AhluYHOVia

It’s weird because that’s what all the fans who ever met him at cons have been doing too, Armie. It’s almost like remembering a moment that they spent with someone who is now no longer with us gives people a small measure of comfort in their sadness. Assholes.

It’s almost like photos that we have are somehow connected to fond memories, and by sharing them we’re sharing those joyful experiences….

I put up a pic of me & Stan because I wanted to share one of the most memorable moments of my career/life meeting the man. That’s what people are doing. It’s the highest honor to testify about what he meant to YOU. But thanks for appointing yourself judge of how people express it

I’m really confused on why you would bring attention to something so minuscule and manipulate it into something negative? Everyone grieves differently. You’ve just now made this entirely about you and your personal preference instead of paying your respects like everyone else.

I posted a picture of myself with my Grandad when he passed away. Was I showing off about knowing him and making that all about me too? No. Let people pay their respects how they want to nobody is the expert on how to pay respect and grieve.

So touched by your heartfelt response to the death of genius writer Stan Lee…no better way to commemorate an absolute legend than making things all about yourself as you make no sentimental gesture and instead mock how other people choose to grieve and/or honour an icon.

I find it disgraceful that THIS tweet is how you decided to acknowledge Stan Lees passing; rather than joining people in sharing their love of a man that was loved by many you saw an opportunity to “make a statement” that does nothing but make you come across insensitive and mean
— (@wadesbuba) November 12, 2018
Wow. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a take so bad.
1. It’s normal behavior to post a picture of you with the deceased. People used to share these kinds of photos long before social media.
2. There’s a certain kind of callousness needed to criticize how people grieve.

Yikes. Maybe they’re remembering the fond memories they had with Stan Lee and how he inspired them. No need to be so cynical about how others choose to grieve. I posted a photo of myself with my beloved grandma who passed. Wasn’t trying to make that moment about “me” either. pic.twitter.com/okWm3bmGze

First, if it’s a picture WITH him, it’s not a selfie. It is a picture with him. Second, your tweet is doing nothing to honor him.

I like to post pictures of me and my dad rather than just my dad whenever I think about how/miss him. It reminds me of our bond and the experiences we had together. This isn’t any different. It’s not like people are posting promotional stuff. Its memories. This is dumb.

But you’re literally doing worse with this tweet? Focusing on something so irrelevant and nonsensical instead of his passing and legacy.

Probably because without him these celebrities wouldn’t have been able to bring his comics to life and play such huge roles. They’re being grateful for the opportunity to impact so many lives. Without Stan it wouldn’t have been possible.

He was 95. His full life should be celebrated. Not mourned. I wish I’d been lucky enough to meet him. I’d be celebrating that too.
— John Eustace (@eusty500) November 12, 2018
Stan would’ve been disappointed at this tweet tbh. He spred love and kindness, and he would be 101% okay with people remembering him by sharing selfies and press pictures of THE TIME THEY SHARED TOGETHER.
