Chris Evans is speaking out to slam the homophobic critics of his new movie Lightyear. For those who don’t know already, there is a same-sex kiss in the movie.

While the kiss was originally cut from the movie, Disney restored it in the wake of the backlash for how the company responded to Florida’s so-called “Don’t Say Gay” bill. Chris has already reflected on the decision to restore the moment and now he’s slamming anyone who is criticizing it.

But those people die off like dinosaurs. I think the goal is to pay them no mind, march forward and embrace the growth that makes us human.” Lightyear hits theaters this Friday!
