The actor is yet to speak publicly on the matter, and multiple requests for comment sent to his representatives have so far gone unanswered. 

The controversy involving Hammer was first stirred up on Sunday when a series of screenshots showing graphic messages he’d allegedly penned to a woman were leaked by the anonymous, now-private Instagram account, House of Effie.

The alleged messages, said to be sent between October 2016 and February 2020, include conversations about BDSM, in addition to numerous sexual references to cannibalistic acts and ‘blood-sucking’.

In one exchange, Hammer is seen to write: ‘I am 100% a cannibal. I want to eat you.’

‘F**k. That’s scary to admit,’ the message continues. ‘I’ve never admitted that before.’

The authenticity of the screenshots has not yet been verified, however the woman behind the House of Effie account shared new alleged correspondences with Hammer on Tuesday, in which he appeared to refer to her as his ‘slave’.

‘You just live to obey me and be my slave,’ a message purported to have been sent from Hammer’s official Instagram account reads. ‘I will own you. That’s my soul. My brain. My spirit. My body. Would you come and be my property till you die?’
