(CMR) The Miss Cayman Islands Committee has issued a statement this evening after a post allegedly by actor Armie Hammer mentioned “Miss Cayman” in an illicit manner. They have clarified that the person referred to and seen in a video on his Instagram page is in fact not Miss Cayman and the matter was reported to the police.
CMR understands the police have spoken to Hammer and a retraction and apology will be forthcoming.
The statement reads in full:
The Miss Cayman Islands Universe Committee is aware of a video allegedly posted by Armie Hammer referring to a scantily clad young woman as ‘Miss Cayman.’
The Committee is very disturbed by the video and would like to confirm that the woman is not the reigning Miss Cayman Islands and has no affiliation to the Miss Cayman Islands Universe pageant.
The Committee and the reigning Miss Cayman regard this issue with the utmost seriousness and the matter has been reported to the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service (RCIPS). The role of Miss Cayman is in part, to serve as a role model to young Caymanian women. The depiction of the woman in the video goes against all that our organisation stands for and the Committee is consequently requesting that Mr. Hammer immediately remove all references to Miss Cayman from his social media channels.
