Captain America is preaching democracy.
Actor Chris Evans, having captivated the Twittersphere and beyond over the weekend with an apparent leaked penis pic, stepped back into his Captain America skivvies, figuratively speaking, on Monday with a command befitting the name.
“Now that I have your attention,” he tweeted, “VOTE Nov. 3rd!!!”
The initial uproar came after a photo roll tacked onto the end of a family trivia game Heads Up! appeared to show a penis that the cybersphere presumed to be his.
Though the Instagram post was quickly deleted, it was up long enough for the interwebs to go wild. Evans certainly did have fans’ attention. His younger brother, Scott, even leaped into the fray.
The Hulk came to Evans’ defense, with actor Mark Ruffalo asserting that the cringe-bar has already been set pretty low.
“Bro, while Trump is in office there is NOTHING you could possibly do to embarrass yourself,” Ruffalo tweeted Saturday. “See… silver lining.”
And of course, the fans came through with their own versions of kudos for Evans’ use of this moment.
“You’re an absolute legend, dude,” tweeted one in reply.
Wrote another, “You, sir, just won the internet.”
