People Are Hurling Abuse At The Wrong Chris Evans Over Top Gear

Photos credit: AP

Chris Evans, actor who plays Captain America in movies, is not Chris Evans, radio man who shouts on Top Gear. But thanks to their identical names and similar Twitter handles, people are tweeting horrible things at the former rather than the latter over the TV show. It’s pretty funny.

For the record, @ChrisEvans is the actor, and @AChrisEvans is the shouty man:


Poor Chris Evans(s). In the future, please direct all horrible abuse over Top Gear at the appropriate Chris Evans. Please direct all horrible abuse over Captain America—if you can find any because most of his movies are pretty solid—at the appropriate Chris Evans.

(Threats, death or otherwise, excluded.)
