Captain Marvel is having a pretty swell time now that it’s out in cinemas. The film’s opening weekend was greeted with a $400 million wave at the global box office and now the film is enjoying its half-a-million haul as it approaches the second week of its theatrical run.
However, despite the film’s obvious commercial success, negative reviews continue to plague the film as trolls take jabs at Brie Larson’s debut as Marvel’s strongest Avenger. Donald Trump Jr. was one those against the film, taking to Twitter during Facebook’s downtime yesterday to share a meme of Captain Marvel as “Captain Triggered.”
In the image, we get to see Larson’s face replaced with that of a woman who’s been a frequent meme. Right above the photo, Captain Marvel is called Captain Triggered – a jab at what some believe to be a “Social Justice Warrior” movie.
"Instagram is down so let’s have some fun with pictures here. Love the concept for the new Marvel movie. Thoughts?" Trump Jr. wrote on his post.

Naturally, the post drew a whole slew of reactions and it didn’t take long before Marvel fans with photoshop skills decided to take Trump. Jr’s pictures and turn them into memes too.
There’s one that shows the businessman in hilarious cover art. Another one shows his father, Donald Trump, and Sarah Huckabee Sanders edited into a scenario remember a National Emergency. Another one yet shows the President as a baby playing with toy warships in the bathtub.
It’s really great to see how imaginative the internet can be, especially when responding to pretty offensive posts like Trump Jr’s.
