After being asked a question about the idea of Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow character wanting to be in a relationship with multiple men, the actors joked that she was a "slut" and a "complete whore" — and caused a media frenzy!

Now, both actors have publicly apologized for their disparaging remarks. Evans had this to say in a statement:

"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 details that the actors were just looking to have a laugh during their grueling press tour. The 44-year-old had this to say:

"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."

Even though some commenters online expressed the actors were clearly joking, we're glad both actors apologized for their remarks!
