“Avengers” actor Chris Evans slammed “Fox Nation” host Tomi Lahren on Twitter Wednesday for her comments about refugee parents.
Evans said Lahrens’ “complete lack of sympathy, respect, and general awareness” was “astonishing.”
“I would carry my kid through fire if it meant escaping hell,” the actor added.
Evans’ response came after Lahren posted a controversial tweet calling refugee parents “s—ty” on Tuesday.
“If you traipse your kid 2,000 miles in dangerous conditions you’re not only a criminal, you’re a s—ty parent,” Lahren tweeted.
Lahren’s tweet comes at a time of intense focus on the US/Mexico border, with many decrying the treatment of immigrants. President Donald Trump has become notorious for his stance on immigration, and has escalated efforts to restrict immigration in recent weeks and months. Many families have become separated in recent months and a large amount of attention is being given to the treatment of children in detention centers.
Fans of the “Avengers” actor were quick to express their support for Evans on social media, calling him a “future super dad” and praising his decency.
