Chris Evans Continues to Be the Hero We Deserve, Smacks Down David Duke and Hate in One Fell Swoop

There’s not much better than a guy who plays a hero also being an actual hero — champion of equality, charitable, kind, kid and puppy lover — in real life, so every time we see Chris Evans standing up to d*ckheads, a**holes and bullies, we love to share the news.

As Trump’s parade of unqualified and despicable appointees rolls on, it often feels like there’s not much we can do but wince and drown in our own tears, but I’ve learned it feels pretty good when you speak out publicly against them. It may not effect immediate change, but our protests and calls, and even the Twitter raging is being heard, and I truly believe our collective voices can make a difference. In this week’s good news, San Francisco’s 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the restraining order against Trump’s travel ban, protesters outside a school in Washington blocked Betsy DeVoss from entering, Kellyanne Conway is being investigated over ethics issues, and the administration’s cracks are becoming more visible with each passing day.

But, let’s get back to our Twitter hero of the day, the Cap, himself, who took issue when vile racist, Ku Klux Klan supporter David Duke threw up a supportive message after vile racist, Jeff Sessions was confirmed.

Evans wasted no time pointing out the obvious:

Duke reiterated his vileness:

Evans smacked him down again …

… and followed up with a final important message.

Why thank you, Cap! And despite just having gone through a bit of a personal bummer, it’s pretty cool that you still make time to stand against true evil. You know, you really should cheer yourself up, maybe go out with an equally delightful friend, have a few laughs, maybe a drink or two? Who knows what could happen?


Just sayin’ … Hayley and Chris, Chris and Hayley; it has a nice ring. Maybe think it over during your next workout.
