The internet has been buzzing with the hashtag #RIPJeremyRenner, leading many to question whether the renowned actor, Jeremy Renner, known for his role as Hawkeye in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, has passed away. The truth, however, is far from it. The hashtag, rather than indicating the actor’s demise, is a part of a movement aiming to ‘cancel’ the actor due to various controversies surrounding him.
The Controversies Surrounding Jeremy Renner
The #RIPJeremyRenner movement has its roots in a series of controversial incidents from Renner’s past. A significant portion of the movement’s supporters demand accountability for Renner’s actions towards his ex-wife, Sonni Pacheco.
The couple divorced in 2014, citing irreconcilable differences. Pacheco later alleged that Renner had threatened to kill her and had displayed disturbing behavior, including threatening suicide and firing a gun into the ceiling to intimidate her.
Further allegations include Renner being under the influence of cocaine and alcohol and biting his young daughter Ava. Pacheco also claimed that Renner left cocaine within reach of their daughter. These allegations have led to a call for a thorough examination of Renner’s behavior.
Some fake tweets about Jeremy Renner’s death:

Renner’s Public Image and the Impact on His Career
The movement also focuses on Renner’s public image, highlighting instances where he used derogatory language against trans people and racial slurs.
His conduct during interviews, including calling Black Widow, a fellow Avenger, a slut, has been criticized. These actions, while not as severe as the allegations related to his family, have contributed to the negative perception of the actor.
The question now is whether the #RIPJeremyRenner movement will lead to Renner being ostracized from mainstream entertainment, similar to what happened to Gina Carano. The future of Renner’s career, including his role in the upcoming Hawkeye series on Disney+, remains uncertain.
The Death Hoax
Adding to the confusion, a hoax news story circulated on social media claiming that Renner had been killed in an escalator accident.
This is not the first time such a hoax has been spread about the actor; a similar incident occurred in 2017. Despite the lack of any credible source, the news went viral, leading to the trending of #RIPJeremyRenner. However, it has been confirmed that Renner is alive and well.
In conclusion, the #RIPJeremyRenner trend does not indicate the actor’s death but rather a call for accountability for his alleged actions and a critique of his public behavior. The impact of this movement on Renner’s career remains to be seen.
