Jeremy Renner & Chris Evans Apologize For Remarks!

Earlier today in a recent interview that Chris Evans and Jeremy Renner did with Digital Spy for the Avengers: Age of Ultron press tour went viral, as the two teammates came under some heavy fire when some disparaging jokes were made about the Black Widow’s character.

You can watch their remarks in the video below:

Renner joked, “She’s a slut.” Evans laughed at the response, adding, “I was going to say something along that line. She’s a complete whore.”

After the interviewer added whatever movie it was Black Widow would just be the sidekick, flirting away, Evans joked, “She’ll just flirt with everybody.” Then, Renner quipped, “She has a prosthetic leg anyway.”

Even though they were both clearly joking, the words used to describe Black Widow immediately created a stir of hate on social media. Their comments quickly went viral and have been the talk of the news all day!

Jeremy Renner & Chris Evans Apologize For Remarks!

With the recent controversy making headlines at a number of huge major news outlets, both Chris Evans and Jeremy Renner have now both released statements, apologizing for their recent remarks.

Evans said,

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

Renner said,

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

Avengers: Age of Ultron opens in movie theaters on May 1, 2015.
