Captain America Actor Goes After Donald Trump for Attacking ‘Fake News’

Like so many others in and connected to Hollywood these days, actor Chris Evans is no fan of President Donald Trump.

The filmmaker (pictured above left) went after the president on Twitter by rewriting a tweet targeting “fake news” that he didn’t like.

“There is great anger in our Country caused in part by inaccurate, and even fraudulent, reporting of the news. The Fake News Media, the true Enemy of the People, must stop the open & obvious hostility & report the news accurately & fairly. That will do much to put out the flame,” read Trump’s tweet. The sentiment was partly in response to the recent Pittsburgh synagogue shooting and suspicious packages being sent out to political figures.

Evans’ response to Trump? He rewrote the tweet so it was more to his liking.

“‘Help! I’ve never done anything wrong in my entire life, but somehow hostility is at an all time high. Just because I kick beehives all day, it’s not MY fault when people get stung! No one has EVER been treated so unfairly. Sad. Also, where’s Obama’s birth certificate?’” the actor wrote.

It’s not the first time the “Cellular” actor has targeted Trump or his administration through social media.

Evans, 37, responded to a tweet from Trump in August and corrected the president’s spelling and then said he did not read.

“Disgraced and discredited Bob Mueller and his whole group of Angry Democrat Thugs spent over 30 hours with the White House Councel, only with my approval, for purposes of transparency. Anybody needing that much time when they know there is no Russian Collusion is just someone…” read Trump’s tweet.

Evans responded by saying, “It’s ‘counsel’, Biff. The word is ‘counsel’. I was trying to comprehend how in the world a man, even as moronic as you, can misspell a word he probably reads fifty times a day. But then it dawned on me, you probably only HEAR the word. You don’t read s***. And we all know it.”

Not only does Evans not like the president, but he also does not like fellow artists who think differently than him.

He recently went after pro-Trump rapper Kanye West and claimed the musician had no knowledge of history.

“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,” wrote West in September. He posted the message with an image of him wearing a Make America Great Again hat.

Evans responded by saying, “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.”

Chris Evans is best known for playing Captain America/Steve Rogers in Disney’s Marvel movies.

He has appeared as the character in “Captain America: The First Avenger,” “Captain America: Winter Soldier,” “Captain America: Civil War,” “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” “The Avengers,” “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” and this year’s hit “Avengers: Infinity War.” The next “Avengers” movie, which will hit theaters next year, is rumored to be Evans’ final appearance as the character.

Besides his role as Captain America, Evans’ career is rather unremarkable. He has appeared in hit films such as “Fantastic Four” and “Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer,” but never matched his Captain America success.

He recently directed the low-budget film “Before We Go” and has said he will be focusing more on directing once he hangs up Captain America’s shield.
