Avengers Assemble to defend Chris Pratt as he is dubbed by an internet poll as the worst ‘Chris’. The star best known for his role in the Guardians of The Galaxy was dubbed as the worst Hollywood Chris.
Other Chris involved were Captain America’s Cris Evans, Thor’s Chris Hemsworth and Wonder Woman’s Chris Pine.
This hate for Chris Pratt stems for his alleged Republican support and his apparent views on LGBTQ. Twitter users picked him apart for supporting a church that staunchly disapproves of LGBTQ movement.

Co-star Robert Downey Junior called him A real christian who lives by the principle and heaped praises on him in a lengthy Instagram post.
James Gunn, who worked with the actor on the ‘Guardians of The Galaxy’ franchise, took on Twitter trolls and told about Pratt’s views on LGBTQIA rights.
In a Tweet, Gunn said, “Chris himself has openly stated the church he attends doesn’t reflect all of his personal views, and that he is a ‘man who believes that everyone is entitled to love who they want.”
When someone asked if he is a Trump Supporter, Gunn rubbished the claims and said, “No. So why are people assuming this and tweeting this? No clue. It’s weird.”
Gamora played by Zoe who starred opposite Pratt in the hit Marvel films, also lent her support saying, “You got this @prattprattpratt. Your family, friends, colleagues & everyone who’s ever crossed paths with you knows your heart and your worth!”
Mark Ruffalo, on the other hand, called the controversy a ‘distraction’ as he tweeted, “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.”
His wife, Katherine Schwarzenegger slammed haters in a post that read, “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. There’s enough room to love all these guys. Love is what we all need not meanness and bullying. Let’s try that.”
