James Bond star Daniel Craig was mocked by journalist Piers Morgan for carrying his baby, but Captain America star Chris Evans came to his defence, and brought an internet army along with him.
“Oh 007.. not you as well?!!! #papoose #emasculatedBond,” wrote Morgan alongside a picture that showed Craig, wearing spectacles and a baseball cap, and holding his baby daughter. The tweet opened a floodgate of responses, that ranged from rational responses to biting takedowns.
Evans, who plays Captain America in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, wrote in response to the tweet, “You really have to be so uncertain of your own masculinity to concern yourself with how another man carries his child. Any man who wastes time quantifying masculinity is terrified on the inside.”
