Chris Evans made Twitter boil over the weekend, after publishing a story on his Instagram account, with one picture that was probably not meant for our eyes.
The actor, who is known as “Captain America” from the Marvel universe, was to share a video of him playing the Ellen DeGeneres game “Heads Up” with friends on his Instagram story.
Towards the end of the video, several pictures from the camera roll appeared on his mobile phone – including a picture of a penis.
Although the story was deleted immediately, several of his followers managed to get it, and take a screenshot of the camera roll.
Ask people to pay attention
Shortly after, Evans trends on Twitter, with people posting the picture. But fans also chose to tweet different photos and comments under the same topic, to try to “drown” the photos.
Among other things, it was mentioned that the actor has previously been open about having anxiety attacks, and fans asked people to pay attention and show some compassion.
Anyone who is a Chris Evans or Marvel fan knows that he suffered severe anxiety and panic attacks before and would know that the continuous spread of the photo can potentially hurt his mental health. https://t.co/NrmD1Q1O1l

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporters podcast in May, Evans said he first had minor seizures when working on the 2010 film “Puncture.”
“I began to think that this might not be right for me,” he said.
Nothing to worry about
In addition to fans who have spoken out, both Mark Ruffalo, who plays the Hulk in the Marvel movies, and Evans’ brother have commented on the incident on Twitter.
Ruffalo tweeted that Evans had nothing to worry about.
– Dude, as long as Trump is president, there’s nothing you could do to fool yourself.
.@ChrisEvans Bro, while Trump is in office there is NOTHING you could possibly do to embarrass yourself. See… silver lining.
