Cue The Outrage: ‘Captain America’ Fans Flip Out Over Chris Evans’ Latest Move – Townhall

On Friday, Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) posted a picture on Twitter showing that he had met with actor Chris Evans on Capitol Hill. Crenshaw showed the actor his Captain America glass eye, much to Evans’ enjoyment.

When Captain America sees your Captain America glass eye. #merica

Evans showed his appreciation by replying, “A VERY cool use of vibranium,” which is the material used for his character’s shield in the Marvel universe:

Evans’ fans, however, attacked him for meeting with the Navy SEAL veteran. In tweets, they compared Crenshaw to “Dapper Nazis” and called him a “f*cking d**chebag”:

We do not stan Dapper Nazis, Chris.

That guy is a fucking douchebag

It’s a pity he seems to think the shield means building walls and caging children.

The far-reaching claims of Crenshaw being a Nazi stem from being “moderator” of a Facebook group that shared far-right memes and conspiracy theories during his campaign:

You need to google people ahead of time.

“until the media reported about it in late August, Crenshaw was a moderator of a Facebook group that promulgates conspiracy theories and racist memes…” like the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville ??

Newsweek reported he was added to the page, without asking, in case he ever wanted to post. He only posted in the group twice and later removed himself. Crenshaw told Newsweek he “never actively managed or interacted with that page” and had “quickly forgot about the page and never saw it again.”
