Even though actor Chris Evans is probably hanging up his shield for good—having recently wrapped re-shoots for the yet to be named sequel to Avengers: Infinity War— he still proved that while his hero days may be over, the guy can’t help but come to someone’s defense. Evans had some choice words for television personality Piers Morgan after Morgan attempted to shame actor Daniel Craig on Twitter, saying that the James Bond actor had ’emasculated’ himself by using a baby carrier.
The whole of the internet pretty much turned on Morgan immediately and even Captain America himself couldn’t skip over the chance to dole out a little bit of justice one more time. As Morgan tweeted that Daniel Craig looked ’emasculated’ while carrying around his newborn daughter with a papoose, Evans chimed in about a day later to essentially call out Morgan’s male fragility.
“You really have to be so uncertain of your own masculinity to concern yourself with how another man carries his child,” Evans wrote about Morgan. “Any man who wastes time quantifying masculinity is terrified on the inside.”

Morgan has yet to respond to the tweet, but the backlash against him for shaming Craig was so immediate that he might just drop this. As the actor currently playing James Bond, Craig has a pretty big fan base that already isn’t happy with his ignorant comments. And stepping to Cap might mean unwisely asking countless MCU super fans to come out and play. Craig hasn’t responded to the statements either, but he’ll probably throw Evans a quick thank you when the two start working on Knives Out, director Rian Johnson’s return to the indie-sphere this fall.
