Famed Italian director Bernardo Bertolucci revealed that the infamous rape scene between Marlon Brando and Maria Schneider in Last Tango in Paris was filmed non-consensually, which is absolutely horrifying, and has sparked understandable outrage from former fans of the film—including Chris Evans.

"Wow. I will never look at this film, Bertolucci or Brando the same way again," Evans tweeted. "This is beyond disgusting. I feel rage."

Meanwhile, Anna Kendrick tweeted a response to Evans, reminding him that Schneider opened up about her experience in a 2007 Daily Mail interview, during which she said "I felt humiliated and to be honest, I felt a little raped, both by Marlon and by Bertolucci."

Evans responded that he had no idea Schneider had come forward, and said "they should be in jail."

It's good to see celebrities standing up for what's right, even if this outrage is several decades late.
