Pageant reports Hammer to cops over scandal

(CNS) The Miss Cayman Islands Committee has made a police report regarding a video posted on movie star Armie Hammer’s social media account. Hammer, who spent time in Cayman as a child and is currently visiting his estranged wife and children who are living here, has been embroiled in a number of social media scandals recently. In the latest, the Hollywood celebrity has been accused of circulating sexy footage of a local pageant queen.

However, Hammer has apologised and stated that the scantily clad woman in the viral video is not a Miss Cayman Island title holder and that his social media had been hacked. The committee has asked Hammer to remove remove all references to Miss Cayman from his social media channels.

It is not clear who the woman is in the video or where she is marked as Miss Cayman, but the incident is alleged to have been filmed and posted on his social media account while in quarantine at the Ritz-Carlton, where a former Miss Cayman contestant was also in isolation.

“The Miss Cayman Islands Universe Committee is aware of a video allegedly posted by Armie Hammer referring to a scantily clad young woman as Miss Cayman,” said Derri Dacres-Lee, the chair of the committee, in a statement released on social media this weekend.

“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. The Committee and the reigning Miss Cayman regard this issue with the utmost seriousness and the matter has been reported to the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service. The role of Miss Cayman is in part, to serve as a role model to young Caymanians,” she stated, as she requested that any connection to the pageant be removed.

The video showed the young woman in sexy underwear in a sexually provocative position, but Hammer issued a statement Sunday through a local contact here stating that he was sorry.

“I would like to clarify that the person in my video which was stolen from my private Instagram is not Ms. Cayman,” he said. “I’m genuinely sorry for any confusion my foolish attempt at humor may have caused. My deepest sympathies to Ms Cayman (who I don’t know) and to the entire organization as I had no intention of implying she was actually Ms. Cayman,” the actor stated.

The footage has gone viral as a result of the media attention that Hammer is currently attracting. He and his wife, TV personality Elizabeth Chambers, and their children were in the Cayman Islands during the lockdown last year. While Chambers has remained here with the couple’s two children, Hammer returned to Los Angele. Rumours of the couple’s marital troubles surfaced and then turned into confirmation of their divorce.

Hammer has been embroiled in allegations of extra marital affairs and is said to have sent disturbing messages to unidentified women that have dominated the pages of online and print celebrity press. Hammer has, however, denied these allegations.

    This does not matter. At all.

    If I had a hammer
    I’d hammer in the morning
    I’d hammer in the evening
    All over this land

    I’d hammer out danger
    I’d hammer out a warning
    I’d hammer out love between my brothers and my sisters
    All over this land

    Let us reflect on these words of wisdom in our daily life and use sparingly in the toolbox of life.

    Just look at the picture in the accompanying article about Ms. Cayman, 2015. Scantily clad enough for you? What hypocrisy!

    Agree re Mac but shame on us for allowing his situation to go away. He beats the crap out of a women and walks. Shame on you Cayman. Even more disturbing is he’ll get RE-elected

    Dripping with White Male Privilege. If a person of color did this stuff it would be a different story.

    I’m guessing there was no hacking of his “private Instagram’” and the girl in the video shared it herself. That’s how these things often play out.

    FFS! Called the RCIPS?? Geeezum… I wish so much effort would be made to get Mac to step down as Speaker! We have more important things to deal with Cayman!

    I swear Cayman is becoming no more than a place for gutter gossip on people’s private lives. Is this really worth reporting? Geesh, many people have fetishes and do weird crap when they are having sex. I know I do and both of us enjoy it but what I do in my bedroom is my own business not the rest of Cayman or the world.

    These people that hack into people private accounts and report these things are only out for two things, their 15 minutes of fame and to get the opportunity to ruin someone’s life.

    I call my girlfriend Miss Cayman all the time..I didn’t know that wasn’t allowed and why did the Miss Cayman feel that it was one of their girls? They subject these girls to scanty swim wear to parade in front of the public and then concerned about some girl in lingerie and in a photo where you can’t even see her face..Hypocrites!

    Seriously?! Who cares. Read the post and it’s pretty clear what he means. Committee getting their knickers in a twist for no reason. RCIPS why aren’t you catching speeders and criminals instead of this cr@p.

    • Just Saying says:

      The real ‘scandal’ here is that the police are investigating it! Most likely in 12 months time they’ll be putting out a photo of the lady in question for us to identify.

      CNS: To clarify, the police have not said they are investigating. The committee said they have reported this to the police.

      • just saying... says:

        On Monday, 18 Jan., a police spokesperson, in a statement to the Compass, said, “The RCIPS can confirm that we received an allegation of misuse of the ICT (Information and Communications Technology) [network], and that the matter is under investigation.”

    All I will say is what goes around comes around. I’ll leave it right there. (Now, the committee will know how it feels when people spread false information and the damage it could do; and what it takes to maintain an untarnished reputation. Hopefully, they will learn from this and communicate respectfully to the contestants.)

    Yes, but who on earth is he?

  16. In a galaxy far, far away says:

    I bet of all the people who comment, maybe five know him personally. Far more things should concern us, than what allegedly happened light years apart from us in Hollywood. If it happens here, I expect the alleged victim to come forward with whatever evidence exists.

  17. I’m moving on says:

    He apologized for the confusion? Closed book for me. And as for the rest of the scandal, I take it with a spoonful (never mind a grain) of salt. Everyone nowadays will spew filth to the “media” in exchange for money or 15 minutes of fame. I am far more keen to have Mac out of the Speaker chair. Later, alligator.

    Nothing to read here folks, dude has serious lack of judgement…looks like a jerk as a result. This is not worth our time. Please return to discussions about the Speaker of the House and his brutal assault on an innocent woman ….that is where the police time and our time should be spent. Elections are coming.

    WTF the man made a video and that’s worth a police investigation? When will they investigate and charge all the corruption and sexual predators in the Caymans?

    Anyone who associates with such a person should be ashamed of themselves. His group of local enablers. I hope he finds the help he so desperately needs. His type of problem not only damages the individual but his family and community as a whole.

    Yes, that sounds like an awesome use of police time. Perhaps someone else should report the Miss Cayman pageant to the 21st century as the antiquated, sexist and shallow nonsense that it is.

    So he’s kinky, who cares? Cayman’s Caymanian swinger scene is a lot worse!
    And I’m sure all the Miss Cayman women out there have done a lot more exciting stuff than a few lingerie shots!

      Swinging is very much an American thing mate. Poor attempt though at turning a personal event with Armie into a Us versus them debate… Still don’t get why people leave their countries of origin and flock to the Cayman Islands and never leave. Then spend the rest of their lives having nothing good to say about it or its people.

      • Anonymous says:

        Because the more people discredit Caymanians, the more jobs available for the rest. They never go back because the salaries and income tax back home isn’t very attractive.

        • Anon E. Mouse says:

          Yep. The same people that come here and discredit Caymanians, are the same ones that discredit blacks and browns and women and the elderly and the alternatively able, etc. back in their own home countries.

        Stfu swinging has nothing to do with nationality lol. Ignorance in cayman clearly still there. Antiquated thinking hurting women forever.

        The original Arm & Hammer logo usage dates back to the 1860s. James A. Church, son of Dr. Austin Church, ran a spice business known as Vulcan Spice Mills. According to the company, the Arm and Hammer logo represents Vulcan, the Roman god of fire and metalworking.
