Why is the internet unhappy about #CaptainAmerica?

The internet is quite unhappy with Captain America today.
Perhaps unhappy isn’t the right word. Pissed off? Beyond mad? Captain America: Steve Rogers #1 , released Wednesday, contains a twist so shocking fans are already calling for a boycott. SPOILER: Captain America has been a double agent working for Hydra this whole time. His mom joined the Nazi-like agency in the 1920s, and Rogers was recruited as a child.
This is what Newser says: The Verge explains why the shock is, well, so shocking. “One of Marvel Comics’ most idealistic and incorruptible superheroes” is now “one of the company’s greatest villains. Time has an interview with Marvel executive editor Tom Brevoort, who says they’ve been planning the reveal since 2014. “It’s a story that we spent a long time on, that’s compelling and captures the zeitgeist of the world. Meanwhile, this is what editor Tom Brevoort told Buzzfeed.
“Nick Spencer pitched this story to us as part of rejuvenating Steve Rogers as part of the character’s 75th anniversary. We saw merit in what Nick proposed, so we’re moving ahead with the story. And this is only the tip of it.” “It’ll reverberate in a huge way as the weeks and months go by,” Brevoort told us. “The most trusted hero in the Marvel Universe is actually a sleeper agent for Hydra. The entirety of the Marvel Universe has a snake at its bosom.”

The San Diego Padres made a mens gay quire stand there while a woman sang the anthum

I don’t need to say this but I shall: The San Diego Padres are in trouble after inviting a gay chorus to sing at the ballgame Saturday night and playing a woman’s recorded voice over them-with thousands of fans in attendance, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports. Was it a mistake? According to the team it was.
“I really want to believe that it was an error,” says Bob Lehman, executive director of the chorus. “But the first thought was, did they do this on purpose? The Padres issued a short apology “to anyone in the ballpark who this may have offended,” and says it has “reached out to the Chorus to express our deep regret for the error. But the chorus, which sang at a Padres game last September, says it’s not satisfied.
For one thing, the Padres haven’t said how it happened. What’s more, the choir says, the Padres initially demanded that singers buy tickets even if they didn’t plan to stay at the game; when Lehman balked, the team agreed that only singers who planned to stay would buy tickets.
After the event was done fans insulted the team by saying things like “you sing like a girl.” This is what one member said.
“I just felt this dread come over me because I was so embarrassed,” says a choral member. “After that, we just stood there. We thought they would ask us to sing, but they just asked us to leave the field. what do you think?
