Chris Evans does not really want to discuss his NSFW mishap on social media recently. He accidentally shared an explicit photo which brought him into the limelight as his picture was circulated around social media.
TV host Tamron Hall, however, tried to get something out of him on his show. “Look, it was a very interesting weekend, full of lessons learned,” Evans said. Chris appeared on the show to kickstart his passion project of launching a civic engagement website, A Starting Point.
The actor wasn’t keen on talking about everything else but it was his first interview since the viral photo. Chris said things happen and it is embarrassing but he said he has to roll with it. “You know, things happen. It’s embarrassing, but you gotta roll with the punches,” he said reluctantly.
However, Chris thanked his fans for the support he received and said he got some fantastic fans. He said, “I will say, I have some pretty fantastic fans who really came to my support. That was really, really nice.”
Chris Evans recently posted an accidental NSFW photo of himself and created quite a stir. His brother Scott Evans and fellow Avengers co-star, Mark Ruffalo teased him.
Chris’ NSFW Moment
Mark took to his social media to support his “bro”. He tweeted on September 12 that there is nothing Chris can do to embarrass himself as long as Trump is in office. He wrote, “@ChrisEvans Bro, while Trump is in office there is NOTHING you could possibly do to embarrass yourself. See … silver lining.”
Chris’ brother also poked with his own joke on Sunday. He tweeted he was off social media the day before and asks what did he miss. After Chris’ leaked nude photo, he became a trending topic on Twitter on Saturday. The Avengers actor had posted a video via his Instagram Story of himself and some friends playing a game of Heads Up.
However, at the end of the clip, it showed the actor’s camera roll. His gallery included a black-and-white photo of a penis that fans assumed was his. The camera roll also included a picture of Chris with the words “Guard That P–sy.”
Fans also poked fun at the accidental leak and wrote, “Chris Evans did nothing wrong he just saw marvel stans asking for content it’s our fault for not being more specific.” Another fan wrote that Chris Evans decided to save 2020 by leaking his own nudes. However, many fans came to his rescue because they know he has an issue with anxiety.
Chris’ Fans Support Him
A fan tweeted asking for help from other fans to report Chris Evans tweets where the actual screenshots are seen. The user wrote, “Please help me to report Chris Evans tweets where the screenshots are seen and better spread the positive tweets because a person like him deserves to be respected and more so being the incredible person he is.”
The user further added we are his family and he needs his fandom and ended with, “He is a good guy.” Another fan wrote, “Everyone talking about Chris Evans leaking his own nudes needs to really not spread that video around. You’re violating his privacy after he realized and deleted it. yall really need to not spread that around.”
Many other fans shifted the focus on Chris and his dog. Soon, photos of Chris and his dog, Dodger started circulating. Fans also shared pictures of him contributing to charity work and being a gentleman to women.
