Chris Pratt Offers Kevin Smith Prayers, So Of Course the Internet Attacks
Most of my college experiences can be summed up by Kevin Smith movies. House parties, pints of Busch in the parking lot, and the View Askewneverse. I've even made the pilgrimage to Red Back to visit Quick Stop Convenience and RST Video respectively. Smith became the first of his kind: a celebrity who would communicate with fans via the interwebs. He was more than gracious answering questions during the three months I thought about screenwriting.
He is a big influence on a lot of people in my age group. One of them being Chris Pratt. After Smith announced he had a near fatal heart attack, Pratt asked people to pray for him. Naturally.
Kevin we don’t know each other too good but I have loved you since Clerks and I’m praying my ass off for you cause… https://t.co/2C8KrGl43z— chris pratt (@chris pratt)1519634023.0
So of course people had to be atheist douche tacos about it. Naturally.
@prattprattpratt Ugh, weird, but nice sentiment. Also, *well.— TangoToni (@TangoToni)1519655863.0
@prattprattpratt Great now I won't enjoy your films as much knowing you're a Jesus nut— Ewan Wilson (@Ewan Wilson)1519637943.0
About that, Sparky. If you're just now finding out Pratt is a believer (see REFRESHING: Chris Pratt Talks Importance of Faith, Family in Hollywood and Chris Pratt Classes up the Internet, Uses Instagram to Express His Faith…), you're not much of a fan.
Plus, to be fair, there were a lot more people praying than there were idiots. Even Guardians director James Gunn came to his defense.
6 I’m not tweeting this to defend Chris - he’s a big boy and can take care of himself. But for me, personally, pray… https://t.co/GGY2S96Nkg— James Gunn (@James Gunn)1519656783.0
This is just where we're at now. A leftist PR firm decided attacking elected officials who pray was a good talking point. Now if anyone famous offers a prayer for anything other than more funding to Planned Parenthood, people get triggered.
Screw the haters. I had already said a prayer before Chris Pratt asked me to.
I'm also praying we still get to see the Jay and Silent Bob reboot.
