People really seem to have it in for Chris Pratt.
This all started after Amy Berg tweeted something out yesterday.
She asked on Twitter which of the famous Chrises should go: Chris Hemsworth, Chris Pratt, Chris Pine or Chris Evans.
Well, this got Twitter all aflutter and this was when I discovered that people really don’t like Chris Pratt and they’re doing this utmost to have him cancelled.
I really despise cancel culture, and I usually try just to ignore it, but this time, I had to try to figure out why people dislike the actor so much.
I read a lot of tweets claiming he is a Trump supporter and is anti-LGBTQ+ rights.
However, i couldn’t find any evidence of this truly being the case online.
Should we really be trying to cancel Chris Pratt?
One has to go. pic.twitter.com/HUWnbQOA43

Hemsworth is so gorgeous he seems like fiction.
Pine was photographed with a huge bag of books.
Evans is funny and politically aware.
Pratt tried to give away his ex-wife's elderly cat on Twitter.

So Chris Pratt belongs to an anti-gay church….that makes one thing easier. When the next Jurassic Park hits the screens, Ill be rooting for the dinosaurs.

What I did find out is that people are connecting his supposed Trumpism and anti-LGBTQ+ rights to his church.
Chris Pratt is part of a church called Zoe Church which is a church in LA.
However, the church themselves have never actually been accused of being against the LGBTQ+ community.
I’ve looked, and all I could find is that they are connected to the Hillsong Church, but they are not the same church.
Pratt has been tied, incorrectly, to the Hillsong Church which has been accused of discriminating against LGBTQ+ people.
Also, Pratt has never voiced support for Trump.
That’s just one of those things that people have been incorrectly spreading about him.
Much of this hate towards Pratt stems from having been called out by Ellen Page on Twitter for his ties to the Hillsong Church.
Chris Pratt was called out by Ellen Page originally
Oh. K. Um. But his church is infamously anti lgbtq so maybe address that too? https://t.co/meg8m69FeF

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

Pratt then issued a statement about his church and his own personal beliefs.
Pratt wrote: “Despite what the Bible says about divorce my church community was there for me every step of the way, never judging, just gracefully accompanying me on my walk.
“They helped me tremendously offering love and support. It is what I have seen them do for others on countless occasions regardless of sexual orientation, race or gender,” said Pratt.
The “Guardians of the Galaxy” star added that his faith is important to him “but no church defines me or my life and I am not spokesman for any church or any group of people.”
Rather, it is his values, Pratt wrote, that define him.
“Jesus said, ‘I give you a new command, love one another,'” he said.
“This is what guides me in my life. He is a God of Love, Acceptance and Forgiveness. Hate has no place in my or this world.”
We’re going to have to wait and see what happens.
What do you make of all of this?
Do you think society should be trying to cancel Chris Pratt?
