Katherine Schwarzenegger Pratt, Robert Downey Jr., and Mark Ruffalo have jumped to defend their loved one Chris Pratt after an offensive Internet challenge named him the “worst Hollywood Chris.”
Katherine Schwarzenegger Pratt was one of the first to jump to defend her husband after filmmaker Amy Berg asked people on Twitter which Hollywood Chris “has to go”?
Responding to an Instagram post by E! News that asked followers the same question, Schwarzenegger wrote, “Is this really what we need? There’s so much going on in the world and people are 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.”
Pratt’s Avengers: Endgame costars Downey Jr. and Ruffalo also replied to the Twitter challenge. “What a world… The “sinless” are casting stones at my brother, Chris Pratt…,” Downey Jr. wrote on Instagram alongside a photo of himself and Pratt on the set of Avengers: Endgame. “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.”
“If you take issue with Chris,,, I’ve got a novel idea,” Downey Jr. continued. “Delete your social media accounts, sit with your OWN defects of character, work on THEM, then celebrate your humanness…” he wrote while tagging Chris Pratt’s account alongside the hashtag #gotyerbackbackback.
Ruffalo jumped in on the conversation and 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,” Ruffalo continued. “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.”
