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