Oscars – Chris Evans Helping Regina King Up The Oscars Steps Sparked A Debate About Male Feminism

Last night were held in LA, and the ceremony was full of unforgettable moments, including Rami Malek falling off the stage and the internet losing its mind over Jason Momoa’s scrunchie.

But arguably the cutest moment of the evening was Chris Evans helping Regina King make her way up to the stage to collect her award for Best Supporting Actress.

As you can see from the clip, Regina stumbled over her dress and Chris jumped up to offer his arm for support.

The gesture wasn’t dissimilar to when Chris helped Betty White make her way to the People’s Choice Awards stage in 2015.

People on Twitter loved the moment. In fact, Chris was trending worldwide for a solid four hours as a result.

With many saying it was proof that chivalry was alive and well.

However, others didn’t feel the same way and said the moment was proof of just how low the bar of expectation is for attractive straight white men.

Some thought the moment was cute, but couldn’t understand why it had caused such fanfare.

Or why Chris was being heralded as an example of male feminism.

Some were annoyed that the moment had detracted from Regina’s win.

However, others jumped in to argue that Chris was simply being “compassionate.”

And others turned the whole thing into a joke.
