‘Star-Lord’ of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Chris Pratt, is having a hard time on Twitter lately. Actress Ellen Page raised questions last week with a tweet about The Hollywood Reporter story on Pratt’s appearance on ‘The Late Show.’ On the talk show, Pratt told host Stephen Colbert that he was inspired to complete a 21-day fast by his pastor. After that Page posted that Pratt’s church is known for being anti-LGBT and added:
“If you are a famous actor and you belong to an organization that hates a certain group of people, don’t be surprised if someone simply wonders why it’s not addressed. Being anti-LGBTQ is wrong, there aren’t two sides. The damage it causes is severe. Full stop. Sending love to all.”
The community cited that Pratt was being a Trump supporter and showed proof that Page might be on a right track.
‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ star Zoe Saldana tweeted a Tupac Shakur quote on October 21 and added a message for her co-star:
“No matter how hard it gets, stick your chest out, keep your head up and handle it.
You got this @prattprattpratt. Your family, friends, colleagues & everyone who’s ever crossed paths with you knows your heart and your worth!“
Apart from Saldana, some of his Marvel co-stars stepped up to defend him also, including Mark Ruffalo, who tweeted that Pratt “is as solid a man there is.” Robert Downey Jr. also provided backup for his buddy, Chris.
Pratt hasn’t said anything about the subject from his social media accounts yet. However, Pratt’s wife, Katherine Schwarzenegger Pratt, was one of the first people to publicly defend the actor by responding to an Instagram post by E! News. She replied:
“Is this really what we need? There’s so much going on in the world and people are struggling in so many ways. Being mean is so yesterday. There’s enough room to love all these guys. Love is what we all need not meanness and bullying. Let’s try that.”
It seems like many actors are trying to defend their beloved co-star Chris Pratt but the question is that is he willing to do this by himself.
