Hawkeye & Captain America Called Black Widow A Slut

While Robert Downey Jr. was shutting down an interview asking about his past drug use, Chris Evans and Jeremy Renner managed to step in some shit by taking turns calling Black Widow a slut and a whore in an interview with Digital Spy. Via EW:

Evans and Renner were asked about the fans’ shipping of different character pairs from the franchise, specifically Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow with Renner’s Hawkeye and Evans’ Captain America. And, with the news that Ultron may hint at a romance between Black Widow and Mark Ruffalo’s Bruce Banner, the interviewer asked what the two actors think about the surprise couple in the film.
She’s a slut,” Renner said, which caused the two to burst out in laughter as Evans chimed in with “a complete whore.”

But don’t worry, Jeremy Renner totally makes it all better, and this is an actual quote that came out of his mouth:

“She has a prosthetic leg anyway.”

Naturally, this pissed the hell out of Marvel fans, and before everyone goes, “Oh, what, we can’t make jokes anymore? Blah blah comedy clubs internet outrage blah blah fart,” these two idiots are promoting a billion-dollar franchise that’s already under fire for leaving its female heroes out of its merchandise, and now you’ve got Captain America and Hawkeye literally calling one of them a slut for having a close relationship with her teammates while fighting whatever the fuck they’re fighting this time. (James Spader robots. I don’t know why I’m pretending it’s not James Spader robots.) The only way they could’ve fucked this up more is if they shat on the interviewer’s foot and told her Tony Stark has sex with kids in the third act. Which I’m pretty sure Jeremy Renner would do if it’ll make people believe he’s straight. Or even just two people. — How about one? One person? He’s been eating fiber all morning. Please.

UPDATE: Here are Chris Evans and Jeremy Renner’s apologies if you want to call Jeremy Renner’s that which you shouldn’t.
