#ChrisEvansisoverparty trends over claims of actor 'being a Zionist', fans ask trolls to 'leave him alone'
There's not much to do in lockdown during a global pandemic, so out of fun, people 'cancel' their favorite celebrities. After Tom Holland, Chris Evans faced this unusual treatment, and his staunch defenders were appalled. How can you cancel the first Avenger, they cry. To be fair, they have a point. After establishing himself as the magnanimous Steve Rogers AKA Captain America in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the actor has dabbled in thriller films like 'Knives Out', and the latest Apple TV+ drama 'Defending Jacob'. Chris Evans has won hearts for his wit, charisma and of course, smoldering good looks.
However, on a further examination of the tweets, it seems as if fans were trying to cancel him for "playing a Zionist" in 'The Red Sea Diving Resort', the 2019 spy thriller. "Stan twitter really tried canceling chris evans because he, as an actor, PLAYED a zionist that’s it i’m taking a break from twitter i can’t stand yal." "#chrisevansisoverparty y’all are canceling Chris Evans bc he, an actor, played a man in a movie that was based on a true story?? So that makes him a Zionist?" a fan wrote.
"When twitter tries to cancel Chris Evans for being a Zionist but nobody tweeting under the hashtag can even comprehend that term apparently," a fan tweeted. Another pointed out that just because he acted in a film, it does not correlate with his beliefs. "I think it's a bit of a leap to go from "was in a movie with a zionist message" to "this directly correlates to chris evans's beliefs" to "chris evans is a zionist," a fan tweeted. Sharing his gorgeous photoshoots, a fan wrote, "I’ll give you ONE reason why #ChrisEvans will never be canceled... NEVA."
"So did chris evans actually do something to get the chrisevansisoverparty hashtag going or is it just stans trying to plug their fancams/start unnecessary drama again," a fan asked. Another wrote, "Hi there’s literally not enough money in the world for me to cancel Chris Evans..."
"Whoever is trying to cancel Chris Evans...leave him alone. He is a national treasure!" a fan tweeted. "I am laughing so much people are trying Cancel @ChrisEvans. Wow!! You must be bored. Loathe to pop your bubble but cancel culture is toxic and doesn't work. You promote the people into the algorithm and make them more popular. Ciao!! I will be off dancing and enjoying life," a fan wrote.
"HOW DARE YOU CANCEL THE FIRST AVENGER?" a fan tweeted.
