Jeremy Renner and Chris Evans have apologized for what they called his “bad taste” joking about the only Avenger, Black Widow Scarlett Johansson woman.
The actors both issued an apology Thursday after the taunts of “Avengers: Age of Ultron” character with derogatory slurs. When asked in an interview earlier video about the possibility of a romance between the Black Widow and Bruce Banner Mark Ruffalo, Renner called “whore” and Evans added that she is “a complete bitch” because they both laughed.
Evans, who plays Captain America, apologized and said he responded to a question “of a juvenile and offensive manner that rightfully angered some fans.” Renner, who plays Hawkeye, said he regretted “that this joke of a character in fiction offended anyway”.
Renner added: “Just teasing during a tour of tiring and tedious press.”
