Cue The Outrage: 'Captain America' Fans Flip Out Over Chris Evans' Latest Move

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.

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”:

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:

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.”
