Chris Evans uses NSFW photo scandal for a civics lesson


Chris Evans made a slick recovery from his NSFW photo scandal.

Breaking his silence after accidentally posting explicit photos on Instagram over the weekend, the Marvel superstar used the moment to encourage people to carry their civic duty on Nov. 3 — by voting.

“Now that I have your attention,” the politically-minded star wrote alongside two emojis — one of a man facepalming and another of a man shrugging — “VOTE Nov 3rd!!!”

The Captain America star’s handling of the embarrassing situation was applauded by his peers. Some replies from Jamie Lee Curtis, Jameela Jamil, Billy Eichner and Monica Lewinsky:

Tamron Hall suggested she’d be asking about it on Tuesday’s edition of her show, which will have him as a guest to discuss Evans’s civic engagement website, A Starting Point.

Over the weekend, the 39-year-old actor appeared to accidentally post some NSFW photos on his Instagram Story, and they were quickly deleted. He was mum on the topic initially, though some of his nearest and dearest weren’t: His Avengers co-star Mark Ruffalo and the star’s brother Scott both joked about it on social media.

It’s been noted that the internet was decidedly nicer to Evans over the accident than to the female celebrities who — beyond their control — saw their own private photos stolen and posted online by hackers, violating their privacy and legal rights. Evans’s fans took to Twitter to ask that screenshots of the photos he posted not be reshared, while many noted the actor suffers from anxiety and panic attacks, citing that as a reason not to forward the photos around.
