Actor Armie Hammer Calls Out Marvel Entertainment Chairman Isaac Perlmutter for Huge Trump Donations

“Call Me By Your Name” actor Armie Hammer has called out Marvel Entertainment Chairman Isaac Perlmutter for his huge political donations to Donald Trump.

Hammer tweeted:

Hey, while everyone seems to be on this Equinox thing, it might be a good time to mention that one of Trump’s largest financial contributors is the chairman of Marvel Entertainment (Isaac Perlmutter)….. jussayin.

The tweet comes amid calls to boycott fitness chains SoulCycle and Equinox because the company’s chairman, Stephen Ross, is hosting a fundraiser for Trump on Friday.

Perlmutter and his wife have donated almost $600,000 to Trump’s presidential campaign in 2019, according to Federal Election Commission records. The Perlmutters also regularly donate to other extreme right conservative causes.

Perlmutter became a member of Marvel Comics’ board of directors in April 1993. The executive was serving as vice chairman of Marvel by November 2001, followed by chief executive officer of Marvel Comics in January 2005. Perlmutter remained the CEO of Marvel Entertainment following the company’s acquisition by Disney and to this day serves as chairman.

  1. I think boycotts, unless taken seriously by millions of people, are ineffective. Not sure how else to express displeasure with big-wigs like Perlmutter and their political leanings and massive donations. I’m sure there are some creative gays out there who can come up with something outrageous and fabulous.
