Chris Evans And Jeremy Renner In Trouble For Slut-Shaming Black Widow

Chris Evans and Jeremy Renner are in some hot water after calling Black Widow from “The Avengers” a “slut” and a “whore.”

Black Widow, also known as Natasha Romanoff, is played by Scarlett Johansson and has a romantic arc with Bruce Banner aka the Hulk.

However, in the past, the character had been romantically linked to Hawkeye, Renner’s character, and Captain America, Evans’ superhero identity.

It is clear the insult to Black Widow was meant solely in jest. However, slut-shaming is a real problem, and it doesn’t set a good example for young kids looking up to these men playing superheroes.

But it does seem as if people are overreacting a bit. We’re talking about a fictional character here, and it was an off-the-cuff joke. Still though, it doesn’t bode well for these two.

Here are some fans’ reactions to the actors’ behavior:
