How To Remove Avatars Hovercards?

The avatars in WordPress are provided by their service called Gravatar. When having the Jetpack plugin activated, WordPress inserts a javascript that will show a card when you hover over the avatar image. This contains links to the user’s Gravatar profile link.

You can disable this behavior (this is theme independent) by going in the admin area to Settings > Discussion and scroll down until you reach the Avatars section and uncheck the Gravatar Hovercards, like in the screenshot below.
