Lionsgate’s Shotgun Wedding, starring Jennifer Lopez, will no longer feature Armie Hammer as the actor has departed the role following the release of social media DMs that are sexually controversial, to say the least. While the authenticity of the messages has not been confirmed, Hammer released a statement that reads as follows (via ComingSoon.net):
“I’m not responding to these bullshit 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. Lionsgate is supporting me in this and I’m grateful to them for that.”
We won’t be posting the messages here because they are WILD, but go ahead and google them if you’re interested.
