Did anyone ever think Chris Evans would accidentally post his nudes on social media? Well, it happened and led to a huge storm on Twitter. On Saturday, September 12, a string of photos emerged online when the ‘Captain America’ star posted a screen-recorded video on his Instagram. Reportedly, it included his face and a d**k pic. Clearly, it was not meant for our eyes. 

As per US Weekly, the Marvel star, 39, took to his Instagram Stories to share a clip of himself and a few friends playing a game of Heads Up. However, at the end of the clip, the video showed his camera roll, and on the row above the clip, there was a black-and-white d**k picture. At that time, many co-stars also took to Twitter to lend their support to the actor. Mark Ruffalo tweeted, "@ChrisEvans Bro, while Trump is in office there is NOTHING you could possibly do to embarrass yourself. See... silver lining." Meanwhile, Chris' younger brother Scott Evans went on to post a hilarious reply: "Was off social media for the day yesterday. So. What’d I miss?"



 



 

After the controversy brewed on Twitter, ‘The Avengers’ star swiftly deleted the video. Better late than never, Chris finally addressed the issue with a clever swipe at his followers. "Now that I have your attention .... VOTE Nov 3rd!!!" he posted. Snarky enough, eh? Well, it did work with his fans who couldn't help but guffaw at the gaffe. In no time, his tweet grabbed one too many eyeballs, collecting over 69,000 retweets and 404,000 likes, at the time of writing.



 

One fan posted a hilarious meme that read: "So you posted your own nudes." He's joking about it. I'm pretty sure that gives people the ok to joke too. If he really didnt want people to laugh, he would make a serious video of why what he did was wrong." One fan came to his defense and said, "It was a harmless joke. It's not like they called him stupid or dumb. Stuff like this happens. Sometimes it's best to laugh it off."



 



 



 

Many celebs came to support him. Actress and activist Jamie Lee Curtis took to Twitter and said: "My boy! Proud of him. Got MY attention!" Comedian and actor Billy Eichner said, "Some hot pics here."



 



 

And some pointed at the misogyny of how people treat women. "The double standard between how everyone is treating this guy v. how everyone treats women when they get their phones’ hacked, etc... This is so incredibly telling of how misogyny is so insidious," one tweet read and another said, "People are real quick to sympathize with and protect @ChrisEvans for (albeit accidentally) sharing his own picture; but were perving on, slut-shaming and lambasting the women victimized by hackers. And THAT, children, is called Misogyny. (Nothing against Chris, btw.)."
