Ahhh, casual sexism…it permeates society in almost every arena. And Brie Larson, the Oscar-award winning actress, had the most brilliant response when a person on Twitter had an issue with her Captain Marvel poster, due it being devoid of a grin.
Twitter user Turd Flinging Monkey (yes, really) took screen grabs of the recently released trailer for Captain Marvel, and used a FaceApp filter to change Larson’s face to include a smile.
“I fixed #CaptainMarvel!” he wrote.

The sexist tweet responding to the posters did not stand alone. No, of course it didn’t. Other Twitter users also noticed the issue with Larson’s lack of a smile, and similarly posted to Twitter commenting on the actress’ face.
