It dates back to the ending of Avengers: Endgame, where an elderly Steve Rogers passed on his Star-studded shield to Falcon stating that he is the ideal successor. This move was a surprise to many of the fans and also received appreciation about how Falcon received the title and not Winter Soldier which was also justified in many ways.

It has always been the Captain drawing his shield to protect his the people from dangers and catastrophes but now it’s time for them to repay and they successfully do so by defending Sam Wilson from this new injustice by a news outlet that still refers to him as some sidekick to the MCU big bosses.

The fans are enraged by this move and also equally upset about the demeaning nature of the article and the subtext beneath it. Moreover standing in the 21st Century, the public platforms do need to take responsibility regarding what they speak about and how they speak about hat respective topics.
