Following the sad passing of Marvel legend Stan Lee yesterday, social media was flooded with tribute posts from fans alike but also from all the celebs who have starred in superhero films and got to work with the icon.

But according to Armie Hammer, this isn’t the way to go.

The actor took to Twitter to slam the celebrities, from Chris Evans to Millie Bobby Brown, who shared a selfie alongside Lee.

“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,” he wrote.

One reporter responded by writing, “They… worked with him…?” to which Hammer, who voiced Strong Arm in the 2014 TV movie Stan Lee’s Mighty 7, responded, “Me…. too…?”

Hammer went on to insist that we need a “cultural revamp” if posting selfies is our first instinct after someone passes.

“What else u supposed to do when someone dies,” asked another Twitter user. “If your answer is ‘post a selfie’ then I think we need a cultural revamp across the board,” he responded.

The actor added that he believes people should honour Lee by sharing photos of his work rather than photos with him.

“If Stan impacted your life (ie. All of our lives) with his work, post his work that touched you the most,” he argued. “Posting a selfie makes his death about you and how cool you felt taking a picture with him.”

In a statement, Bob Iger, CEO of Marvel Entertainment’s parent company The Walt Disney Companysaid that as a “super hero in his own right to Marvel fans around the world, Stan had the power to inspire, to entertain, and to connect. The scale of his imagination was only exceeded by the size of his heart.”
