KAARTHU @iamkaarthikeya Chris Evans has done so many wonderful and kind things for our community. Today he mistakenly posted a personal image for a brief moment before taking it down. Chris has struggled with depression and panic attacks. Please respect him and his family delete that photo.#ChrisEvans So if anyone has been on Twitter today, they proba heard about Chris Evans and how he accidentally leaked his own nudes on his Instagram story. Fans everywhere then decided to flood his hashtag with wholesome photos of him with puppies and remind people that Chris suffers from anxiety. This reactic was really sweet, and l'm proud of the internet, c imagine how mortified he was when he realized an hope this is making him feel better. However, this reminded me of when female celebrities like Jenni Lawrence got their icloud account hacked, which resulted in nudes leaked. How people blamed HER taking nudes of HERSELF on HER own phone, and she should expect to get hacked because she's a celebrity. I'm hoping that the change in reaction between the two celebrities is because we, as a sc are learning and doing better, and not because of double standards, but I really can't tell, and don't to see another celebrity nude leak from any gende happen to find out. 4:37 AM · Sep 13, 2020 · Twitter for Android  data-src=
