Chris Evans and Jeremy Renner Apologize For Offensive Jokes

Chris Evans and Jeremy Renner Apologize For Offensive Jokes

We all thought as kids (and some of us as adults, too) that the Avengers could do no wrong…well we were sadly mistaken. The cast of Avengers: Age Of Ultron have been causing quite a stir while promoting their upcoming film. First, Robert Downey Jr. walks away in the middle of an interview and now Captain America’s Chris Evans and Hawkeye’s Jeremy Renner are in hot water for calling “Black Widow” a whore.

Check out a video below of the interview that made many of their fans and women cringe.

According to USA Today, after the slander the Avengers received for being “sexist”, they issued an apology:


“Yesterday we were asked about the rumors that Black Widow wanted to be in a relationship with both Hawkeye and Captain America. We answered in a juvenile and offensive way that rightfully angered some fans. I regret it and sincerely apologize.”


“I am sorry that this tasteless joke about a fictional character offended anyone. It was not meant to be serious in any way. Just poking fun during an exhausting and tedious press tour.”

With the movie premiere right around the corner, lets see if this will impact the box office success of the highly anticipated blockbuster film of the summer. We can almost bet feminist all over won’t let this slide too easily. Not even Captain America is equipped to take on a group of scorned women.
