Rhetorical question, but what or who the fuck is FKA twigs?

That's a pretty harrowing account. This guy was clearly a monster. He seems to take some responsibility for his actions, instead of denying them, but that doesn't mitigate any of his abusive behavior, nor does his sobriety--if that's true--indicate that he'll never do that again.

It sounds like LaBeouf is/was a colossal asshole who has a pattern of abusive relationships but it seems strange to me to sue someone over it.

Some snowflakes make a big deal out of nothing

Ok he might be a little kinky in bed but he did not harm anybody



Armie Hammer is exiting his planned action-comedy Shotgun Wedding after alleged graphic social media messages detailing his private life were leaked.

His part in the Lionsgate film, which is set to star Jennifer Lopez, will be recast.

In a statement obtained by PEOPLE, the actor said, "I'm not responding to these bull— 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," he concluded.

A production spokesman tells PEOPLE, "Given the imminent start date of Shotgun Wedding, Armie has requested to step away from the film and we support him in his decision."

Hammer's departure comes after several alleged messages were leaked by the anonymous social media account, House of Effie, according to Page Six. The messages, which have not been verified, are alleged to be from the Call Me By Your Name actor and depict sexual fantasies including rape and cannibalism.

he 34-year-old “Call Me by Your Name” actor previously described himself as a “dominant lover” who enjoyed “grabbing women by the neck and hair” during sex. Marrying now-estranged wife Elizabeth Chambers, however, changed his tastes.

“I liked the grabbing of the neck and the hair and all that. But then you get married and your sexual appetites change,” he told Playboy in 2013. “And I mean that for the better — it’s not like I’m suffering in any way. But you can’t really pull your wife’s hair.

No, that was the American businessman who made sweetheart deals with the USSR.

I am all for putting away a criminal like Weinstein and I get why Kevin Spacey was fired from his projects, but it's just tiring if everyone who may lets someone feel uncomfortable is treated like an outcast. In this case Armie Hammer made the decision himself, since his family has to deal with the topic, but thinking back at the James Gunn "scandal" makes me just mad.

Armie Hammer is the great-grandson of that guy, Armand Hammer.

If he beat his ex or tried to lure some teens, that's worth noting. The stuff he's actually getting written up for? Yeah dumb.

From his interviews, he seems to be a fan of sex, I don't think he discriminates.

Looks like the FBI cleared Ryan Adams of criminal charges.

He's still guilty of being an asshole though, as most prolific artists like him are.
But I guess he's "made amends privately" to his ex-wife.

That’s funny. I just did a little reading on Armand Hammer to check to see if it was true.

Fun fact: Arm and Hammer wasn’t named after Armand Hammer. He bought stake in the company because his name was so similar.

He was also pardoned by HW Bush. Sounds like the guy lived a pretty interesting life.

Abusers do use BDSM as a cover.

How to Recognize Abuse in BDSM Relationships

I see #3, #4, #9, and #10 in that Jezebel story.
