British journalist Mehdi Hasan tweeted: “Goodbye Chris Pratt.”
Soon, many fans started bringing up the actor’s past objectionable views, as one user responded: “I thought we all agreed Chris Pratt had been kicked out of Chris Club for his homophobic church and his dismissal of the urgency of this election. He’s the obvious choice.”
“We always knew Chris Evans was superior over Chris Pratt,” another tweeted.
“This can’t be true.. one my favorite actors Chris Pratt trump supporter?? And he’s ANTI LBGTQ?? This must be a lie.. is he sick?? Ugh this hurts..” added another.
“Chris Pratt being a Trump supporter is kind of obvious when he kills animals for sport & his father in law is a former Republican Governor. What took y’all so long to figure it out???” a fan alleged.
Prior to this, Pratt reportedly drew criticism on social media after he appeared to be trivializing voting to urge people to vote for his movie ‘Onward’ at the upcoming People’s Choice Awards.
“With all that’s going on in the world, it is more important than ever that you vote. Just ask any celebrity. They will tell you. Every day. Several times a day. To vote,” he wrote on Instagram.
“But me? I will tell you EXACTLY who to vote for. #onward The heroes before us did not spill their blood only to have their sacrifices wasted by your apathy.”
“The upcoming 2020 People’s Choice Awards is the most consequential vote in the history of mankind times a million infinity. Vote for #Onward for the family movie of the year. Or else. You WILL die. No hyperbole. Click the link in my bio. Let your voice be heard,” he concluded.
