Armie Hammer’s wife has stepped in to defend their young son, who was filmed sucking the actor’s toes in an Instagram video.

In the clip which Armie, 32, shared on Saturday, the couple’s two-year-old son Ford Douglas Armand is seen briefly sucking the actor’s toes.

Many of Armie’s 1.2 million Instagram followers were outraged by the video, which no longer features in his Instagram Stories.

The actor’s wife Elizabeth Chambers Hammer has now reportedly addressed the criticism.

Commenting under an Instagram post of the video on Perez Hilton’s page, Elizabeth reportedly said: ‘It wasn’t seven minutes…more like five seconds.

‘Our son likes to play with people’s feet and I put the video on our family stream because this phase is an ongoing joke.’

She added: ‘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.’


Elizabeth appears to have since deleted the comment.

In the short clip, a woman who is presumably Elizabeth, is heard laughing in the background while stating: ‘This is not normal.’

Armie then says: ‘Alright, no more.’

In the video’s caption, Armie wrote: ‘This happened for a solid 7 minutes,’ while adding the hashtag ‘foot fetish on fleek’.


The clip divided Armie’s followers with Love & Hip Hop star Tahiry commenting: ‘TOTALLY NOT FUNNY… inappropriate,’ while another wondered: ‘So gross. Why post it and let it go on for 7 minutes!!’

One Instagram user said: ‘Not inappropriate, just plain nasty,’ while another explained: ‘Call me old fashioned but I don’t think this is funny at all. He should have told him to stop and that it’s wrong to suck on his dads toes. I’m assuming he didn’t just come out of the shower where his feet are freshly washed and clean. And even then I’d tell my child that he shouldn’t be doing it [sic].’

Not everyone was offended by the video, with one Armie fan arguing: ‘Dude. It’s f*****g harmless. Do y’all not have little kids? They do weird ass s**t. BELIEVE ME. You grown ups are sexualizing it, this kid just thinks it’s funny to put his dad’s toe in his mouth… y’all want me to list things kids wanna put in their mouths? Can’t. Too long [sic].’

Metro.co.uk have contacted Armie’s reps for comment.
