It seems more and more that actor Chris Pratt has become the focus of much hatred and backlash on Twitter. By making any kind of general post himself, he tends to be attacked online. There are also plenty of negative responses to news of the actor whenever it hits, such as when he was announced as the voice of Mario in the upcoming Super Mario Bros movie. Interestingly, podcaster Joe Rogan has now spoken up in an effort to defend Chris Pratt.
This occurred on a new episode of The Joe Rogan Experience, as pointed out by Yahoo! Entertainment, where Joe Rogan gives his reason for the hate. Specifically, Joe Rogan says that people are attacking Chris Pratt “because he’s Christian.”
He further elaborated his position:
He says Chris Pratt is “kind of outside the lines in terms of his ideology. He’s a Christian. And pretty open about it. And because of that, they attack him.”
Joe Rogan further described those that have attacked iconic actor Chris Pratt in the past by saying the following:
That his attackers are “all insane people that hate their jobs or sitting in front of the cubicle. When their boss isn’t looking, they’re tweeting bad things about Chris Pratt.”
With this in mind, he does have somewhat of an advantage for the argument. Particularly because Joe Rogan has actually gotten to know Chris Pratt in person. As a result, he has nothing but nice things to say about the actor.
Nevertheless, although Christ Pratt continues to receive backlash online, it doesn’t seem to be stopping the actor. He’s still being announced for projects left and right, with some exciting new projects on the way. This includes both several Marvel films as well as Jurassic World: Dominion. It looks like audiences are going to keep getting more Chris Pratt, whether they want it or not.
