The big weekend news was Chris Evans’ social media slip-up. The actor accidentally posted a private image to his Instagram Stories, but that’s not the important part of the story. (Nor should it be, because everyone deserves privacy.)
The internet’s gift, however, was knowing Chris Evans has a meme of himself in his camera roll with the words “GUARD THAT P*SSY” over it.
This just makes us love him even more.
How this whole thing came to be was Evans did a screen record on his phone. Instead of editing the clip, he kept in the footage of his camera roll that flashed. As soon as he realized the mistake, he deleted the story. However, the meme was already found.
Instead of focusing on the intimate image, the internet ran wild with Chris “Guard That P*ssy” Evans.
OKAY BUT WHY HE DOES HE HAVE SOME PICSART EDIT OF HIM SAVED THAT SAYS “GUARD THAT PUSSY” pic.twitter.com/xyOENTthg0

Fans also flooded the internet with wholesome images and reasons why they love Chris Evans as a way to keep the intimate photo from surfacing and spreading. Many people pointed out how Evans is open about his anxiety and how the image spreading could be affecting him.
friendly reminder that chris evans is one of the sweetest men who (very publicly) suffers with crippling anxiety, and you should block & report anybody who is sharing that nude picture because this angel deserves nothing but love ❤️ pic.twitter.com/sBwQxoF62r

Before sharing Chris Evans nude, remember that the actor suffered an anxiety disorder with the rise of his Hollywood career and even refused to be Captain America on several occasions for fear that fame would affect him and his family.#ChrisEvans pic.twitter.com/J6PeEDAJYJ

Actress Kat Dennings, who was the victim of a nude leak, brought up a very important perspective to consider in light of a leak happening to a male celebrity:
The public respect for Chris Evans’ privacy/feelings is wonderful. Wouldn’t it be nice if it extended to women when this kind of thing happens?
— Kat Dennings (@OfficialKat) September 13, 2020
She’s right. We have failed women over and over when it comes to giving them agency over their bodies.
Chris Evans accidentally leaked a nude photo. For the most part, social media has rallied around him. Nobody called him a slut. Nobody insisted he was an attention whore. Nobody thinks his career is ruined.
We need to give women this same love & respect. 💯💯💯#ChrisEvans

Maybe the response to Evans’ situation can help usher in the respect and support everyone in this type of situation deserves.
