This is highly problematic, you guys:

Business Insider asked Jeremy Renner, who also starred in “American Hustle,” if he would also be willing to negotiate alongside his female co-stars on future projects. He also was paid more than Adams and Lawrence for his role in the film, according to a Sony email leaked during the hack on the company.
“That’s not my job,” Renner said, while taking part in an intimate press day on Tuesday for the new “One Life/Live Them” campaign he’s doing for Rémy Martin Cognac.
Adding he fully supports actresses receiving equal pay as actors, he said he’s more focused on his craft than what everyone is making.
Naturally, the Outrage Brigade is flipping their lids:

Jeremy Renner is an ass. Please go away.
— Mel de Quevedo (@paprikacrocante) October 21, 2015
Jeremy Renner’s face perfectly matches his whack ass opinions and that’s all there is to say about that.

In other news, Jeremy Renner: still kind of a dick who's not very good at talking to people about things. Shush now, son. Just shhhhh.

I was laying in the middle of the street bleeding badly. #JeremyRenner walked over and told me it was not his job to call an ambulance.

Really, #JeremyRenner? "It's not my job?" Seriously, that's the argument for not defending your fellow citizen's right to equal pay?

Oooops. Jeremy Renner has made himself unpopular. Not taking a stand for your female co-stars? Not cool, bro. Equality is everyone's job.

I wish Mark Ruffalo could like sit Jeremy Renner down, give him a good bitch slap & then tell him how not to be an asshole.

Can Jeremy Renner and his ugly, plastic, disgusting face fuck off.
— Annie (@hurrikanedrunk) October 21, 2015
Too bad these doofuses apparently didn’t take the time to, you know, read what Renner actually said. They could’ve saved themselves a lot of wasted breath and wrist-flapping.
Because not only is Renner not wrong, but he’s pretty darn logical about the whole thing:
@EW And he's right. That's the job of her agent.
— BigGerm72 (@PoliSnark2Day) October 21, 2015
@EW he's right. These women have agents that are paid for the express purpose of getting then paid more.
— Greg T. Paradise (@GregTheRipper) October 21, 2015
I fail to see the controversy here. It's not @Renner4Real job to worry about what JLaw or anyone gets paid. Stop being so damn sensitive. ?
— Michael (@TheMikeAnthon) October 21, 2015
Why would that be Jeremy Renner's job? You're not even supposed to discuss coworkers salaries at my job! What a non controversy
— Matt Dawson (@SaintRPh) October 21, 2015
Jeremy Renner is simply being pro-choice in his view that it's not his place to help a womyn with her own contract negotiations.
— GayPatriot™ (@GayPatriot) October 21, 2015
There you go!
i love that people are making huge character judgements on Jeremy Renner just because he said he was going to focus on what he's good at.
