Yes, exactly guys. Don’t be fooled. Why would Captain America ever do that?!

On a serious note, impersonation is a serious, legal offense. And it’s important to understand that it doesn’t count as a joke if it’s with a public figure or celebrity.

We are sorry Captain America had to explain himself to his people. We believe YOU, Cap!
