Warning: Spoilers ahead for the first episode of "She-Hulk: Attorney at Law."
In the premiere episode, She-Hulk wonders whether Captain America is a virgin.
Hulk actor Mark Ruffalo and Captain America himself, Chris Evans, have chimed in on social media.
Captain America star Chris Evans has responded to the "She-Hulk" viral meme questioning his famous character's virginity.
In the premiere episode of the new Disney+ series, She-Hulk (Tatiana Maslany) goes on a road trip with her cousin, the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), and questions him about his teammate. She-Hulk concludes that because Captain America was constantly in battle situations, he would have no time to have a relationship and, thus, must be a virgin.
The conversation breaks off due to a surprise attack, but the topic is brought up again during the post-credits scene in which She-Hulk pretends to be drunk in order to get the truth out of her cousin.
After Hulk reveals Captain America lost his virginity in 1943 "on the USO tour," She-Hulk proudly shouts "Captain America fu—" before the episode ends.
After the episode aired and became a viral meme, Chris Evans posted a cryptic response of laughing emoji and a zipped lips emoji.

Evans' tweet received a number of replies, including from Ruffalo, who wrote: "Sorry bro. It was under extreme duress."
"She-Hulk" writer Jessica Gao explained in an appearance on Deadline's "Hero Nation" podcast that the joke came about due to conversations with her own friends.
"We just had this running joke that [She-Hulk] would be very obsessed with whether or not Captain America was a virgin because she feels that 'that ass' deserves to have sex at some point in his life, and it would be very sad if he went through his entire life in the service of the greater good and never got to take some time for himself and enjoy," the writer said.
Gao continued: "These are the kind of things in the show that are born of conversations that we all just naturally had outside the show. I certainly had that conversation with my friends and we talked about it endlessly in the writers' room."
Gao also told io9 that Kevin Feige, the president of Marvel Studios, loved the joke.
"Kevin was really into that joke," Gao said. "He actually was the one who volunteered the answer to that question and I couldn't believe that we got to definitively settle that issue once and for all."
