Back on October 2, actor Chris Pratt offended the perpetually offended online when he posted a joke-filled statement on Instagram asking people to vote for the film Onward to received a People’s Choice Award. Pratt’s statement mocked Hollywood celebrities for telling people how to vote which irritated people on the left who responded with some version of ‘that’s not funny.’ Throughout the month, people continued to pile on Pratt using tweets like this one below as an excuse to bring up reasons they dislike him, including his attendance at a church connected to Hillsong.
And from there the hate-fest aimed at Chris Pratt just snow-balled, made up mostly of people on the left who are upset about his religious and political views:
Twitter users brought up Pratt’s association with the evangelical Hillsong Church, whose founder has made anti-LGBT statements. Plus the fact that Pratt follows several conservative commentators, politicians and organizations on social media — yet has remained silent on his views leading up to the presidential election — has led many to assume he is a supporter of President Trump.
Eventually, this caught the attention of E! News, which published a piece about the “The Battle of the Hollywood Chrises” and promoted the story on Instagram. That was the last straw for Pratt’s wife, lifestyle blogger and TV personality Katherine Schwarzenegger.
“Is this really what we need? There’s so much going on in the world and people struggling in so many ways. Being mean is so yesterday,” Schwarzenegger wrote in a comment on E! News’s Instagram post on Monday. “There’s enough room to love all these guys. Love is what we all need not meanness and bullying. Let’s try that.”

You all, @prattprattpratt is as solid a man there is. I know him personally, and instead of casting aspersions, look at how he lives his life. He is just not overtly political as a rule. This is a distraction. Let’s keep our eyes on the prize, friends. We are so close now.

Sorry. Just finding out about this nonsense. @prattprattpratt is the best dude in the world. I’ve spent hours & hours sharing my deepest truths with this man, as he has with me. Please stop assuming what he believes, politically or in any other way, because he’s a Christian. https://t.co/XSIgU9WemX

Chris Pratt's MCU co-stars are defending him from the cancel mob. They're now being bullied & harassed too.
Zoe Saldana is getting the worst with racist slurs like "coon."
Marvel panders to these woke ideologues who are now attacking them for defending a "cis white man." pic.twitter.com/Z18ky2E210
