After just three episodes The Falcon and the Winter Soldier has already succeeded in making the character played by Wyatt russell, or John Walker / Captain America, quite hated by the fandom, and after the third episode the hatred for him continues to grow. Apparently however, that hatred has gotten to the point that Wyatt russell is already receiving death threats from some fans who are not happy to see him take on the robes that once were of Chris Evans.
According to the information we got on Twitter, a fan account that people thought was Wyatt Russell's official page was deactivated because there was too much criticism. However, another large group of fans quickly rushed to the actor's defense, saying that he is just doing his job and that he shouldn't be criticized for taking on the role of the new Captain America in the hit series. Disney +. Below you can find some examples:

john walker is a character who you might hate / don't like wyatt russell is an ACTOR / HUMAN with feelings so sending him death threats and hate is just wrong. also the hate towards john walker just proves how amazing wyatt is at acting. he deserves better

John Walker is a character you might hate, but Wyatt Russell is an ACTOR, a HUMAN being with feelings, so sending him death threats and hate is just plain wrong. Hatred of John Walker also demonstrates how fantastic Wyatt is at acting. He deserves better.
Okay, so people are sending death threats to Wyatt Russell ?? What's wrong with people. If you don't like the new Captain America, hate the character and not the actor. It's not the actors' fault, okay.
