Chris Evans made a slick recovery from his NSFW photo scandal.

Breaking his silence after accidentally posting explicit photos on Instagram over the weekend, the Marvel superstar used the moment to encourage people to carry their civic duty on Nov. 3 — by voting.

“Now that I have your attention,” the politically-minded star wrote alongside two emojis — one of a man facepalming and another of a man shrugging — “VOTE Nov 3rd!!!”

The Captain America star’s handling of the embarrassing situation was applauded by his peers. Some replies from Jamie Lee Curtis, Jameela Jamil, Billy Eichner and Monica Lewinsky:

Tamron Hall suggested she’d be asking about it on Tuesday’s edition of her show, which will have him as a guest to discuss Evans’s civic engagement website, A Starting Point.

Over the weekend, the 39-year-old actor appeared to accidentally post some NSFW photos on his Instagram Story, and they were quickly deleted. He was mum on the topic initially, though some of his nearest and dearest weren’t: His Avengers co-star Mark Ruffalo and the star’s brother Scott both joked about it on social media.

It’s been noted that the internet was decidedly nicer to Evans over the accident than to the female celebrities who — beyond their control — saw their own private photos stolen and posted online by hackers, violating their privacy and legal rights. Evans’s fans took to Twitter to ask that screenshots of the photos he posted not be reshared, while many noted the actor suffers from anxiety and panic attacks, citing that as a reason not to forward the photos around.

A Finnish passenger cruise ship was evacuated on Sunday after it ran aground off the island of Aland in the Baltic Sea, the cruise line and emergency services said Sunday.

The ship was headed towards Stockholm from Turku in Finland and ran aground around 12:50 am local time (0950 GMT) outside the city of Mariehamn on the autonomous Finnish island of Aland near the Swedish coast.

“There are no personal injuries and no-one’s life is in danger, and the situation aboard is stable,” Eleonora Hansi, head of information for Viking Line Scandinavia, told AFP.

The ship, Amorella, is 169 metres long and does daily trips between Stockholm in Sweden and Turku in Finland.

Normally it carries between 1,800 and 2,000 passengers but due to the pandemic the number was heavily reduced, Hansi said.

“There are about 200 passengers and about 80 crew members onboard,” Hansi said.

Local media reported that passengers had gathered on deck and were wearing life jackets.

Broadcaster YLE also reported that according to the crew’s Mayday call, the ship had sprung “leaks in multiple locations” as a result of the impact.

Finnish maritime rescue services said on Twitter that the ship had moved closer to shore after the hit to “beach itself and stabilise the situation”.

“Amorella stands firmly on the bottom. The 281 people onboard are in not in immediate danger but the captain has decided that all extra people be evacuated from the ship,” the West Finland Coast Guard said.

Around 5:30 pm, the coast guard wrote on Twitter that all passengers had “been evacuated to shore,” and that part of the crew was “next to be evacuated”.

Cramer Shares His Thoughts On Plug Power, Zebra Technologies And More

On CNBC’s “Mad Money Lightning Round,” Jim Cramer said to a viewer that he can own 3D Systems Corp. (NYSE: DDD), but he thinks it ain’t going to make more than a dollar or two.

There is not a lot of travel going on now and that is how Cracker Barrel Old Country Store Inc. (NASDAQ: CBRL) makes money, so Cramer is not interested in it.

Cramer advised a viewer with a profitable long position in Zebra Technologies Corp. (NASDAQ: ZBRA) to take some money off the table. He sees Zebra as one of those companies people are selling in order to buy new IPOs. He believes it is a good company and he would wait for a pull back to buy.

Cramer likes Plug Power Inc. (NASDAQ: PLUG), but he wouldn’t have liked it if there were no acquisitions.

Nokia Oyj (NYSE: NOK) has a product that is expensive and not as good as some others.
