Armie Hammer Faces Massive Backlash After Sharing Video of His Son Sucking on His Toes

Actor Armie Hammer came under intense fire over the weekend after he shared a video of his two-year-old son, Ford Douglas Armand, sucking his toes. What began as a bizarre, funny family moment caught on tape quickly became a PR nightmare because of Armie’s questionable caption.

On Saturday, July 27, Armie uploaded a video of his son, Ford, sucking on Armie’s bare toes. “This happened for a solid 7 minutes,” Armie’s caption began. He then added the hashtag “#FootFetishOnFleek,” which really set the internet ablaze.

Armie has since deleted the video, but nothing can ever be truly scrubbed from the internet. Clips from the video are included in the video below.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, many commenters were aghast. Some were angry that Armie allowed his son to suck on his toes, period. Others were upset that he felt the video was appropriate to share with his 1.2 million Instagram followers. Others felt that the “foot fetish” caption was highly inappropriate given his son’s age.

“So gross. Why post it and let it go on for 7 minutes!!,” one commenter said.

“This is sick! Call child protective services and take the kid and have him arrested!,” another said.

Users were particularly disturbed by Armie’s “foot fetish” caption.

“Not only have I seen toddlers before, I had two who I never allowed to suck my toe or any other other part of my body unlike Armie Hammer who videotaped it and showed it to the world, even captioned fetish with it. If that is not sick to you, then I don’t know what is,” a commenter said.

Another added: “I know kids are…weird. I know that. But I wouldn’t post a video of them doing something weird and call it a “FETISH” IN THE CAPTION. Do not ascribe your toddler son’s odd toe-chewing behavior to a ‘foot fetish.'”

Other internet users used memes to share their disappointment and disgust.

Armie’s wife, Elizabeth Chambers Hammer, spoke out yesterday following the backlash.

In response to Perez Hilton, who re-posted the deleted video, Elizabeth said, “It wasn’t seven minutes… more like five seconds.” (Hilton’s video has also since been deleted.)

“Our son likes to play with people’s feet,” her response continues. “And I put the video on our family stream because this phase is an ongoing joke. Sharing the video on Instagram was def not the best move on A’s part, but I can assure you that our children’s safety and well-being is always our first priority.”

While sharing the video may have been questionable, we have to say: So what? At the end of the day, it’s harmless. But no doubt, Armie Hammer has learned his lesson.
