“Captain America” star Chris Evans responded to some of the viral attention he has received online for a not-so-safe-for-work photo he seemed to have accidentally posted to Instagram recently by urging fans to vote.
Evans posted an Instagram video of himself Saturday playing “Heads Up” that appeared to have been filmed on his phone with the screen recording mechanism.
He must have forgotten to trim the video because as the game stopped, it offered a glimpse of his camera roll.
One of the pictures was on the risqué side (blurred out below) which was shared with more than 6 million followers.
There is also a meme that featured a picture of Evans’s face with the words “Guard. That. P*ssy.” written across it.
His Avenger costar Mark Ruffalo responded, “@ChrisEvans Bro, while Trump is in office there is NOTHING you could possibly do to embarrass yourself. See… silver lining.”
On Sunday, brother Scott Evans, jokingly asked if he’d missed anything by being off social media over the weekend.
After days of hilarity at his mistake, Chris Evans finally responded today: “Now that I have your attention … VOTE Nov 3rd!!!”
Evans has been critical of Donald Trump and backs Joe Biden for president.
The tweet has racked up more than 1.1 million likes and nearly 200,000 retweets as of this evening.
Now that I have your attention
VOTE Nov 3rd!!!

Evans addressed the photo, which has since been taken down from his page, during an interview with daytime talk show host Tamron Hall that aired on her show today.
During the appearance, Evans said, “Look, it was a very interesting weekend, full of lessons learned.”
“You know, things happen. It’s embarrassing, but you gotta roll with the punches. I will say, I have some pretty fantastic fans who really came to my support. That was really, really nice,” he added.
