The meme of Chris Evans with long nails has always existed, but it officially went viral when Evans said he didn’t know what “Black Twitter” was.

Clearly displeased, Black Twitter began to photoshop the Avengers: Endgame star with even longer nails, big bonnets, tiny box braids, and colorful turbans.

This spawned a string of other Avengers to be reimagined by Black Twitter with memes. Chadwick Boseman was photoshopped with purple locs and fierce lavender acrylics.

Chris Hemsworth was photoshopped with gold hoops and long nails, while Benedict Cumberbatch also got his own pair of gold hoops and long, neon blue nails.

No word on if Evans has been made aware of the meme yet, but it’s safe to assume that he will be aware of Black Twitter’s presence after this.
