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.
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.”
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.
