More than a year following his text message scandal, Armie Hammer now finds himself back in the news due to the situation. The actor, who reportedly sent out sexually explicit messages involving cannibalism and more to various women, is now the subject of a docuseries. As evidenced by House of Hammer’s trailer, it sheds light on the controversy as well as other alleged issues within the Hammer family. Amid the series’ release, Hammer’s aunt, Casey, has been vocal about her family, making a number of claims about their history. And more recently, Casey got candid about how she felt when the “cannibal” accusations were first leveled against her nephew. 

Casey Hammer is one of the most prominent interviewees in Discovery+’s House of Hammer, and many of the stories covered on the show were detailed in her 2015 memoir, Surviving My Birthright. In the past, she’s specifically discussed alleged instances of abuse involving the men in her wealthy family, from which she is currently estranged. With all of this, Hammer was apparently not surprised when the allegations against her nephew began to surface: 

I wasn’t shocked when the allegations came forward. Based on my experiences in my family, I suffered from abuse. It was just a way of life. You don’t wake up one day and become a monster—it’s learned behavior. Once [the allegations] started unfolding, I was like, here we go, another Hammer man and something that’s being said about them.
