As I’m sure everyone already knows, over the weekend, Chris Evans briefly and accidentally posted his camera roll to Instagram Stories, which contained a number of images, one of which was a black-and-white photo of a penis that may or may not belong to Chris Evans. Concerned about his anxiety disorder, the Internet was mostly very sweet about it — and I’m sure the double standard was obvious to everyone — and posted the sh*t out of Captain America memes in an effort to bury the photo in question.
Meanwhile, Evans’ Avengers co-star Mark Ruffalo took it in stride, ribbing Captain American good-naturedly.

Evans’ older brother, Scott, also made a joking reference to his brother’s penis.

The Internet, meanwhile, had a grand old time.

Last night, Chris Evans finally broke his silence, wisely using the newfound attention to encourage people to vote.

VOTE Nov 3rd!!!
Well done, Mr. Evans, although, saying who to vote for might have been helpful, Cap, because I don’t even want to get into how many QAnon loonies are in his mentions capitalizing on a picture of a penis.
Vote for the one that puts the pedophiles away not the one that wants to legalize PEDOPHELIA !!!— Emilie 👽 Chenier (@EmyFlook) September 15, 2020
