Katherine Schwarzenegger Pratt, Robert Downey Jr. and Mark Ruffalo are defending Chris Pratt after an Internet challenge named him the “worst Hollywood Chris.”
It started over the weekend when filmmaker Amy Berg asked people on Twitter which Hollywood Chris “has to go”?

Comments against Chris Pratt started pouring in. Many Twitter users saying they chose him to go because of his alleged political views or because of a claim last year that he supported a church with anti-LGBTQ views.
Pratt responded to those allegations at the time saying, “It has recently been suggested that I belong to a church which ‘hates a certain group of people’ and is ‘infamously anti-LGBTQ.’ Nothing could be further from the truth. I go to a church that opens their doors to absolutely everyone.“
.@prattprattpratt has to go. Easiest decision I’ll make all week.
Not the same likable guy from his Parks & Rec days. More creepy than likable now.
Oh yeah, & he’s also the weakest actor in that group.

Chris’s wife Katherine Schwarzenneger commented on an Instagram post by E! News that asked followers the same question, saying “Is this really what we need?”
“There’s so much going on in the world and people are struggling in so many ways,” she continued. “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.”
Pratt’s co-stars Robert Downey Jr. and Mark Ruffalo also voiced their support of the actor.

What a world… The “sinless” are casting stones at my #brother, Chris Pratt… A real #Christian who lives by #principle, has never demonstrated anything but #positivity and #gratitude… AND he just married into a family that makes space for civil discourse and (just plain fact) INSISTS on service as the highest value. If you take issue with Chris,,, I’ve got a novel idea. Delete your social media accounts, sit with your OWN defects of #character, work on THEM, then celebrate your humanness… @prattprattpratt I #gotyerbackbackback (📸 @jimmy_rich )
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.
