When Captain America, Chris Evans, isn’t busy defending the planet from intergalactic threats, he’s out policing the Twitterverse — shutting down Trump’s racist tweets and slamming the president’s ties with Putin.
This week, however, the Marvel actor set his sights on a different target: Fox Nation host and right-wing political commentator Tomi Lahren.
Lahren has spent much of the past couple of days live-tweeting CNN’s Democratic debates, attacking the various candidates and angrily tweeting about immigration.
At one point during the first debate, she tweeted: “If you traipse your kid 2,000 miles in dangerous conditions you’re not only a criminal, you’re a shitty parent.”
Her tweet racked over 29,000 responses. Unsurprisingly, the majority of of them were from many outraged at Lahren’s insensitive comments.
On Wednesday, Evans joined their ranks.
“Wow. The complete lack of sympathy, respect, and general awareness is astonishing. Also, I would carry my kid through fire if it meant escaping hell,” he tweeted in response.
