One of the more interesting social media celebrity interactions happened when Marvel’s own Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt posted an Amazon sponsored picture on his Instagram page. His photo showed him leaning against a treadmill while holding a bottle of water, and while most would have nothing to say about it, Aquaman film star Jason Momoa used the opportunity to take a jab at Chris Pratt.

You’re probably wondering why I’m standing here, low key flexing, gazing into the distance… well, turns out I'm teaming up with @amazon to show you guys everything I use for my workouts, keeping active, and all that fun stuff to get you prepped for 2020. #FoundItOnAmazon #Amazon #Ad http://www.amazon.com/chrispratt
He wrote the following message:
“bro i love u but wtf on the water bottle. no single-use plastic. come on.”
While his response isn’t anything too crazy either, fans decided to pick up on the message and began to nitpick and respond as fans usually do. Obviously some people agree with Jason Momoa’s eagerness to protect the environment, and others are shocked to see him point out the water bottle in such a way.
The responses eventually motivated Jason Momoa to write an apology on Instagram. He ended up stating:
“I’m sorry this was received so badly today I didn’t mean for that to happen,” Momoa wrote. “I’m just very passionate about this single use plastic epidemic. the plastic water bottles have to stop i hope u make a reusable water bottle for amazon so we all can purchase. You’re an inspiration to many I’m one of them.”

@prattprattpratt BRO you know my children and I are madly in love with you and I love everything you do. I’m sorry this was received so badly today I didn’t mean for that to happen. I’m just very passionate about this single use plastic epidemic. the plastic water bottles have to stop i hope u make a reusable water bottle for amazon so we all can purchase. You’re an inspiration to many I’m one of them. I’ll send you a case of MANANALU. All my Aloha, Da Momoa’s
Chris Pratt then made his own respectful response to Jason Momoa.
“Aquaman! You’re completely right. Da**it,” Pratt wrote in response. “I always carry my big gallon size reusable water jug with me too. I even had it that day!!! If I remember correctly somebody threw that plastic bottle to me in the photo shoot cause I didn’t know what to do with my hands.”
He added, “Love you too buddy. My bad. I don’t want your home of Atlantis covered in plastic. Hear that kids? Reduce. Reuse. Recycle.”
It’s definitely nice to see Jason Momoa and Chris Pratt speak so respectfully to one another, especially over a very honorable cause – the preservation of our own environment.
