Fans are dragging Brandi Glanville for attempting to make a pass at Armie Hammer via Twitter.

The former “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star” is receiving flack for seemingly making light of the recent, very serious, and disturbing allegations made against him.

“Dear @armiehammer You can have my rib cage how do you just keep getting hotter and hotter #letsbbq,” she tweeted early Monday morning. Naturally, her comment was not well-received, and she has been urged repeatedly by her followers to delete the tweet.

“Brandi it’s not too late to delete this tweet,” one person replied.

“There are very serious abuse allegations against this person. You are mocking these and all victims. I’ve always had compassion and empathy for you even when your behaviour didn’t always warrant. This has gone too far,” wrote another.

“It’s not easy to go too far on Twitter but you did,” someone else commented, while another added “Wow, he assaulted multiple women. This is disgusting.”

Some of Glanville’s followers mentioned that while her remark was disappointing, it wasn’t surprising. Others chimed in to say that they hope she gets canceled for it.

“Pathetic but totally on brand,” someone replied.

In case you missed it, the “Call Me By Your Name” actor has been in hot water for weeks after several direct messages surfaced online, alleging that he may have particularly dark, disconcerting fantasies, as well as a history of sexually abusing his former partners.

“I am 100% a cannibal,” he allegedly wrote in one of the leaked messages.

Following the slew of incriminating screenshots, Hammer released a statement responding to the accusations.

“I’m not responding to these bullshit claims, but in light of the vicious and spurious online attacks against me, I cannot, in good conscience now, leave my children for four months to shoot a film in the Dominican Republic,” he wrote, revealing that he would be stepping down from his upcoming movie. “Lionsgate is supporting me in this and I’m grateful to them for that.”
