Easy, Cap! This ain't the 1940's anymore!

Chris Evans and Jeremy Renner are being put on blast after a recent interview promoting their upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron film.

The interviewer brought up the fact that fans of the franchise had been shipping Scarlett Johansson's character Black Widow with multiple male characters. In response, Renner dryly stated:

"She's a slut."

The two actors immediately cracked up, as Evans joked that he agreed Black Widow, aka Natasha Romanoff, was a "complete whore."

Renner then poked fun at the character's prosthetic leg, a comment many labeled as "ableist" — or discrimination against people with disabilities.

The seemingly lighthearted jokes began a social media frenzy and divided the Avengers fandom. Commenters ranged from disgust to defending the actors' sarcasm.

It's clear that the leading men were joking and probably delirious from countless Avengers interviews, but their intent doesn't negate the impact of their misogynistic and ableist comments.

We're sure these actors wouldn't make racist or homophobic jokes during a press interview, so why should these degrading jokes get a pass?

Do U think the actors need to smarten up or the internet needs to toughen up? Watch the interview (below) and decide for yourself!
