For a few days, some images of the actor Armie Hammer have circulated on social networks, allegedly promoting the advantages of staying in a place in the Cayman Islands.
According to TMZ, the ‘Call Me By Your Name’ star was seen sitting with a couple and going over the price of a unit at a hotel where she was supposed to work as a concierge.
While the outlet reported that the images were taken last month, a representative for the reality star has now told Variety that the flyer that went viral on Twitter depicting the actor as an employee at Morritt’s Resort in Grand Cayman , is nothing more than the result of a joke orchestrated by the hotel employees.

The bizarre episode came to light when a producer from the ‘Showtime Desus Mero’ series shared the flyer in a since-deleted tweet that read: “My friend’s parents went on vacation to the Cayman Islands and Armie Hammer was their janitor “.
The flyer shows Hammer looking off-camera and smiling, along with his first name and the extension number where he can be reached at the hotel in case guests want to book a “swimming with wild turtles” session or tips. about where to snorkel. He also said, “I’m his personal concierge and I’m here to help you make the most of your vacation.”
But Hammer’s representative, Andrew Brettler, revealed to the magazine that nothing could be further from the truth, since the brochure is false.
The outlet even spoke with a hotel employee, who shared more information about the origin of the flyer.
According to the worker, the actor is a guest of the hotel and is not a stranger to other employees of the hotel, since, he said, they constantly meet Hammer at the golf course and spend time together. Likewise, he confirmed that it was those colleagues who made the brochure as a joke and sent it to some rooms, because they never thought that the image would receive so much attention.
The rumor, now debunked, comes nearly seven months after Hammer left a rehab center in Orlando, Florida, due to his addictions to drugs, alcohol and sex. He had entered after allegations of sexual misconduct were brought against him.
In March 2021, Hammer was charged with rape and assault by a 24-year-old woman identified only as Effie. The actor vehemently denied all the accusations against him, however, direct messages, allegedly written by the actor, in which he detailed graphic sexual fantasies, some with references to cannibalism, came to light last January. Subsequently, Armie Hammer was fired from various projects that he had underway at the time.
