What’s funny here is that we made a joke about SJWs coming after Chris Pratt over a separate issue (see Chris Pratt Makes Hilarious ‘Transphobic’ Joke About Jennifer Lawrence… Cue Outrage?). But as the folks at Heat Street point out, apparently Pratt’s new movie Passengers is all problematic and stuff…
Social media movie social justice warriors are taking strong exception to the plot of the film revolving around a man disrupting a woman’s life, accusing the movie of being sexist and perpetuating male fantasies and featuring misogynistic snatches of dialogue such as when Lawrence’s character Aurora asks Pratt’s character Jim, “What do we do now?”
Firstly, I haven’t seen Passengers so I’m not sure if what’s in the movie is actual sexism, or “sexism.” What I do know is this movie isn’t real. Ergo the sexism isn’t real.
I’m going to tell you what this actually is: Millennial snot scones have far too much time on their hands. What with many of them being without a job. Or purpose. So they’re getting hot in the skinny jeans over a movie. Shot in outer space. Based on true events… which happened in a writer’s imagination.
Solution? Bitch about it…
So is Chris Pratt typecast to play sexist characters or….

@Shion963 It's creepy and sexist. It would have been easy to make it better by calling out Pratt's character's shit.

We’ve made it pretty clear we’re fully Team Pratt. Some of our reasons are all the things that leftists hate (see Chris Pratt Celebrates Easter in the Most Chris Pratt Way Possible and Chris Pratt: ‘I Only Eat What I Kill.’ Vegans Freak). If anything, we’re just shocked it’s taken SJWs this long to come after him. Also, the staff at LwC are all getting tickets to see Passengers now.
But going full screen on this, liberals have their Depends in a twist because of what an actor read into a camera.
Playing devil’s advocate a bit, why isn’t JLaw being called out for allowing herself to be the victim of onscreen sexism? She got the script just like Pratt did. If women are all empowered and stuff, the agents of their own destiny, then why is she allowed to be sexified by Pratt (I made that word up, deal with it), but Pratt is the one the diaper-loaded butt weasels attack?
Right. You’re not supposed to think about that. The point here is to virtue signal your cares, tweet some fluff, call a man a sexist pig whore, then get the I Care About Sexism In Fake Places Like Fictional Movies merit badge.
Though, would Chris Pratt ever allow himself to be waterboarded? I think not…
