Armie Hammer has issued an apology and correction after falsely referring to a half-naked woman on his private Instagram as “Miss Cayman.”
“I would like to clarify that the person in my video, which was stolen from my private Instagram, is not Miss Cayman,” Armie said in an audio message sent to the Cayman Compass.
“I am genuinely sorry for any confusion my foolish attempt at humour 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.”
In case you missed it, somebody found Armie’s finsta account over the weekend, on which he shared a series of questionable posts.
Among a number of posts in which he asserted he is taking drugs like DMT, THC and benzos, Armie shared a video of a half-naked woman in the Cayman Islands.
“Well… my ex (for a very good reason) wife is refusing to come back to America with my children. So I have to go back to Cayman… which sucks. Except there are a few silver linings. Like f**king Ms. Cayman again while I’m down there,” he captioned the video on his finsta, according to the Daily Mail.
Obviously, the video caused some confusion, with viewers believing that it was the actual winner of the Cayman Islands Miss Universe competition.
However, the Committee Chairperson for the Miss Cayman Islands Universe Competition Derri Dacres-Lee took to Instagram to clarify that the woman in the video has no affiliation with the pageant.
“The Committee is 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,” she wrote.
The news comes after Hammer resigned from his upcoming film Shotgun Wedding amid the cannibalism scandal.
“I’m not responding to these bulls— claims but in light of the vicious and spurious online attacks against me, I cannot in good conscience now leave my children for 4 months to shoot a film in the Dominican Republic,” he told PEOPLE.
