There’s a good chance you missed a few of the allegations against Armie, which isn’t surprising when you consider how little damage criminal allegations actually do to the career of white men.

But the actor has multiple criminal allegations to his name, including the violent rape of a woman under the alias Ellie, as well as suggestions of cannibalism.

But according to the Huff Post, “Armie Hammer’s alleged crimes are only the tip of the iceberg,” and the doco will bring to light the dark and twisted secrets of the Hammer family”.

House of Hammer, will premiere on Discovery+ in the United States with an unannounced release date. It has not yet been revealed when the documentary will be available to watch in Australia.
