Chris Evans has been a trending topic on social media in recent days thanks to an unfortunate mishap. The Avengers: Endgame star accidentally posted a nude pic on his Instagram Stories. He quickly realized his mistake and deleted the NSFW pic, but the image quickly went viral. One of the best reactions to Evans’ mistake came from his brother, Scott Evans.
Chris Evans’ fans quickly jump to his defense
The Captain America star began trending over the weekend after an innocent game of Heads Up. Evans was playing with his 5.7 million Instagram followers when he failed to “trim a clip from a video he uploaded.” This resulted in Evans revealing a gallery of private photos, including one nude image.
This photo didn’t show the person’s face. But, it’s safe to assume that the pic was of Evans. After the incident, fans quickly came to Evans’ defense instead of tearing him down. They are asking for people to be kind, to quit sharing the pic, and to show the actor some respect.
One fan called Evans a “gentleman,” while others posted photos of the actor with his dog Dodger to help “cleanse” timelines. Another fan thought everyone should report the tweets that included the photo because Evans is a “good guy.”
Mark Ruffalo shared his thoughts about his co-star’s mishap
Evans’ error was impossible to miss on Twitter, and it had everyone talking. His Avengers co-star Mark Ruffalo even chimed in. The politically outspoken actor told Evans that the mistake wasn’t as embarrassing as he might think.
“@ChrisEvans Bro, while Trump is in office there is NOTHING you could possibly do to embarrass yourself. See… silver lining,” Ruffalo wrote.
When a fan pointed out that Ruffalo could have just called Evans instead of posting the message publicly, he replied, “Yeah but…”
Evans has also been critical of President Trump ahead of the upcoming presidential election. He recently founded a fact-based bipartisan website called A Starting Point for “basic political topics and policies.”
“It’s not that I’m specifically drawn to politics. It’s just when you look around, you try to figure out how can you help,” Evans said. “You have to use your platform to do more than just retweet things.”
Chris Evans’ brother Scott had the best reaction to the leaked photo
To lighten the mood surrounding his brother’s snafu, Scott Evans poked fun at Chris. The day after the Captain America star accidentally posted the explicit photo, Scott tweeted, “Was off social media for the day yesterday. So. What’d I miss?”
Chrissy Teigen has also tweeted her support for Chris, who has always been one to find the humor in any situation. She joked that “any boobs” on the camera roll in her phone are not hers.
“My WhatsApp automatically saves every photo to my roll so any boobs in my phone are my girlfriends showing me their boobs or boobs they hate or boobs they love or yeah def also my boobs,” Teigen tweeted. “I’d say 80 percent of my roll is WhatsApp nonsense between friends.”
Evans called the whole situation “embarrassing,” but also took the opportunity to remind people to vote in November.
