Chris Evans and Jeremy Renner Called Scarlett Johansson’s Avengers Character a “Slut” and Twitter is Livid

But ScarJo doesn't seem bothered.

Your favorite superheroes Hawkeye and Captain America are also the most sexist, according to Twitter. Avengers stars Chris Evans and Jeremy Renner face backlash after joking about Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow character, who they called a “slut” and “whore” in a Digital Spy interview.

“She’s a slut,” said Renner. “I was going to say something along that line… A complete whore,” replied Evans. Renner added, “she has a prosthetic leg anyway.”

In a world where Twitter trolls exist and people get pissed just about everything, you can imagine how the rest of this went down.

Johansson has yet to comment, but E! reports that the two actors issued a public apology.

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

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

Knowing how freaking adorable the cast is, we can imagine Twitter was more pissed about this whole thing than ScarJo was.
