Chris Evans + Jeremy Renner Apologize For Calling Black Widow a ‘Slut’ and ‘Whore’ (VIDEO)

Avengers: Age of Ultron stars Chris Evans (Captain America) and Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye) came under fire after calling character Black Widow a “slut” and whore” in an interview yesterday (04/22).

Basically for choosing the Hulk over their respective characters — commentary which did not go over well. You can watch the video in question below.

The duo apologized today (04/23) for their remarks in separate statements.

Said an apologetic Evans:

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 very juvenile and offensive way that rightfully angered some fans. I regret it and sincerely apologize.

Added a less apologetic Renner:

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 2 will hit theatres on May 1, 2015.
