In a wonderful turn of events, Chris Evans has seen the Black Twitter memes about him—and he loves them!

The tweet Evans acknowledged was a video combining all the memes which had been made about him in recent weeks, set to “Act Up” by City Girls.

The original meme, which appears to have existed for a few weeks, began to spread rapidly after Evans appeared on a show and stated he was unfamiliar with “Black Twitter.” A user then called him out on his statement, attaching various photoshopped images of the movie star wearing items commonly associated with African American culture.

Shortly after, everyone on the internet began to follow suit and made memes out of some of the actor’s Avengers co-stars.

Congratulations, Chris, you now join a long list of actors turned into memes by Black Twitter. You can now wear your Twitter verification badge with honor.
