No, Chris Evans is not starring in a remake of “Free Willy,” but it appears that he accidentally freed his willy, captured it on camera and then posted it on Instagram on Saturday. And, needless to say, social media went insane (in a good way).
It seems that Evans was attempting to post an Instagram video and amid the string of recognizable photos of himself is a silhouette of an erect penis or, as some on Twitter are calling it, “America’s Dick,” “a welcome new ‘member’ of ‘The Avengers” and “the most fantastic one of the ‘Fantastic Four.’”
Although he quickly deleted the clip, several fans snapped some screen grabs … and rest, as they say, is Twitter history.
The lesson, here, Chris, is to edit clips before posting them on social media. Then again, a whole lot of his 5.7 million followers were happy enough to get his name trending on Twitter.
A rep for Evans did not respond to a request for comment.
Fellow “Avengers” star Mark Ruffalo offered something reassurance: “Bro, while Trump is in office there is NOTHING you could possibly do to embarrass yourself. See… silver lining.”

On the flip side of the “Whoa!” reaction to his private photo of his private parts was fans noting what a nice guy he is and posting photos of him with his dog and helping famous ladies up stairs and onto the stage of award shows.
