Chris Evans is the actor who played the role of the Human Torch in “Fantastic Four” and Captain America in “Captain America: The First Avenger” and “The Avengers.”

He’s also quite the debater.

It looks like he caught Breitbart News editor-at-large Ben Shapiro on Thursday night’s edition of “Piers Morgan Live.” Musket Morgan ripped into Shapiro over his contention that coming out doesn’t make gay NBA player Jason Collins a hero. Shapiro asked Morgan, “Why do you hate Americans so much that you think this is such a homophobic country, that when Jason Collins comes out it is the biggest deal in the history of humanity?”

Partial transcript available at Breitbart News.

Evans’ take?

Well, then case closed!

Shapiro replied with class, grace and … wait for it … tolerance.

What say you, Chris Evans?
