Chris Evans Goes In On Kanye West For His 'MAGA' Rant
We all know Kanye West thrives on controversy, having strengthened a decent career as a rapper with his strange antics in between dropping albums.
However, it seems like his latest stunt may have actually backfired a little bit, having been shut down by none other than Captain America.
At the weekend, Ye had decided to close his Saturday Night Live performance with a pro-Trump rant. Yep, whenever we're talking about Kanye and Trump, things never seem to go particularly smoothly, do they?
In footage captured by actor and comedian Chris Rock, the audience didn't seem to be on board with his diatribe - with some greeting it with total silence, and others booing him loudly.
Oh, and then because that reaction clearly wasn't enough for the star, he then tweeted a 'message sent with love' from his private jet, saying that 'this represents good and America becoming whole again'.
this represents good and America becoming whole again. We will no longer outsource to other countries. We build factories here in America and create jobs. We will provide jobs for all who are free from prisons as we abolish the 13th amendment. Message sent with love pic.twitter.com/a15WqI8zgu

That was the moment when Captain America star Chris Evans stepped in, tweeting Kanye to say that he found the rapper's actions not just 'frustrating' but also 'retrogressive, unprecedented and absolutely terrifying'.
Blimey, tell him how you really feel, fella.
There's nothing more maddening than debating someone who doesn't know history, doesn't read books, and frames their myopia as virtue. The level of unapologetic conjecture I've encountered lately isn't just frustrating, it's retrogressive, unprecedented and absolutely terrifying. https://t.co/4jCFwB4T5U

Many praised Evans for his well-worded response, with some agreeing that they didn't feel particularly comfortable taking political advice from someone who had just performed to the nation in a Perrier bottle fancy dress costume.
CAN YOU BELIEVE CHRIS EVANS JUST ENDED KANYE'S CAREER

Some went as far to say that Chris Evans' had the power to end Kanye's career - although others were quick to point out that it would probably take more than that to do so.
One argued: "Im going to preface this by saying I am NOT a Kanye West fan. Chris Evans did NOT end his career. As long as the black community continues to support him, his career, unfortunately, will be just fine. If it didnt end with that "slavery is a choice" comment, it wont end with this."
Another added: "Even Kanye can't kill Kanye's career dude literally said slavery was choice and still at the top, I don't think a tweet from a celebrity is gonna end his career lol."
I mean, they've got a point on that one.
