One of the most vocal fans of the Patriots in Hollywood says he's not sure he can continue to support Tom Brady because the quarterback seems to have affection for President Trump.
Recently in an interview with the Hollywood Reporter in Boston, Chris Evans, best known for his work as Captain America in Marvel's "Avengers" series, said he hopes Brady will no longer support Trump.

Trump reportedly still claims that Kraft is present at the visit of the White House patriot this year, even though he was charged with prostitution, not a word as to whether Brady awaits
Evans says he feels compelled to reflect on the subject, "I would be disappointed with myself if I did not comment," he added, "primarily for fear of financial repercussions or one Career damage – that really feels very rude to me. "
