“Captain America” star Chris Evans on Monday deflected the weekend crash that involved him, a “Heads Up” game, Instagram and a peek-a-boo film shared on Instagram Stories.
The “Knives Out” and “Defending Jacob” star caused a stir online after sharing a now deleted clip of himself playing the “Heads Up” game. In the end, Evans inadvertently shared a sneak peek of a phone’s wrap, which included an image of a penis, though it’s unclear if it was his camera (or genitals) that were shown. (Another roll-based NSFW meme also went viral.)
Although he quickly deleted the video, it was uploaded and screenshots from the film were posted on social media over the weekend. The actor was silent on the topic, which was all the rage for days, then broke his Twitter silence Monday night with an eye-catching tease to remind people to vote – the palm of the face and all.
“Now that I have your attention…. VOTE on November 3 !!! He tweeted.
And beards flooded his responses thereafter, with lots of concise digs into “America’s” genitals.
Before that, however, the “Avengers: Endgame” star was harangued by his brother Scott Evans, his “Avengers” teammate Mark Ruffalo and unofficial Twitter mayor Chrissy Teigen.
Some thought Evans leaked the nude on purpose, but others weren’t so convinced.
Either way, screenshots dominated Twitter, and in an effort to grab the hashtag “Chris Evans,” his fans subverted it with healthy, philanthropic posts featuring the actor with puppies or comments. sympathetic to his anxiety.
But many countered this mild reaction with the double standard used against women who don’t have such luxury. Several Twitter users have cited the case of Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence, who was accused and ashamed of being a slut when her cloud was hacked and her nude photos leaked in 2014.
“Thor” actress Kat Dennings was among those critics, tweeting that it would be nice if the same public respect for Evans’ privacy and feelings were “extended to women when this sort of thing happens.” .
