Robert Downey Jr. Defends Chris Pratt Against Left Attack


Chris Pratt has been attacked by the radical left on social media over his political and religious views which have seen fellow Marvel actors Robert Downey Jr. and Mark Ruffalo and Zoe Saldana come to his defense as well as James Gunn and wife, Katherine Schwarzenegger.

How it all started is that E! News asked the internet which “Hollywood Chris” is the best, with the choices including Chris Pratt, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, and Chris Pine.

Well, Chris Pratt ended up last among the actors with responses on social media attacking his conservative political and religious views as well as the thought that Pratt supports Donald Trump, though the Guardians of the Galaxy and Jurassic World actor has never publicly come out and supported the president.

Robert Downey Jr. Defends Chris Pratt

Robert Downey Jr. took to Instagram to defend his friend offering he has Pratt’s back.

“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,” said Robert Downey Jr.. “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.”

“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,” tweeted Ruffalo.
