Slut Joke Shames Avengers, Series Probably Over (VIDEO)

April 23, 2015 | celebrity | Lex Jurgen | 0 Comments

Jeremy Renner and Chris Evans made a legitimately funny aside about ‘Black Widow’ being a slut in the Avengers story and got to laugh for ten seconds before their reps were forced to issue public apologizes recognizing that women, blacks, Jews, Asians, gays, Hispanics, Muslims, SUNY Binghamton grads, the disabled, the obese, people living with anxiety, The Hmong people, McDonald’s employees, crossdressers, the agoraphobic, those in committed Adult Nursing Relationships, drug addicts, bulimics, semi-aborted fetuses, or adult men who chew gum are not suitable topics for humor. Chris Evans agent got out ahead of this horror with some pro forma bullshit:

“Yesterday we were asked about the rumors that Black Widow wanted to be in a relationship with both Hawkeye and Captain America. We answered in a juvenile and offensive way that rightfully angered some fans. I regret it and sincerely apologize.”

You could see this as another slouching step toward the pussy state of political correctness. Or, you could hail the fact that comic book characters no longer have to be slut shamed. Inclusiveness should be our goal, even if it means excluding tons of people. Not to mention anything that makes life worth living. Laughter is overrated. Cinch your belt a little tighter and pretend you lost five pounds. Everybody cool hates mirth.
