Renner found himself in hot water last month when he initially made the off-color joke during the 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' press tour.

Jeremy Renner didn't stop while he was ahead, unapologetically rehashing his infamous Black Widow "slut" joke on Conan Monday night.

"Mind you, we are talking about a fictional character and fictional behavior, Conan," Renner said, "but if you slept with four of the six Avengers, no matter how much fun you had, you’d be a slut. Just saying. I’d be a slut. Just saying."

Renner found himself in hot water last month when he initially made the off-color joke during the Avengers: Age of Ultron press tour.

Asked by a reporter about Black Widow's relationships with various members of the Avengers, Renner said, "She's a slut." This prompted Chris Evans, who was also present, to add, "I was going to say something along that line, she's a complete whore. … She'll flirt with everybody, leading everybody on."

Renner and Evans later apologized. "I am sorry that this tasteless joke about a fictional character offended anyone," Renner said. "It was not meant to be serious in any way. Just poking fun during an exhausting and tedious press tour."
