Buckle up, buckeroos. Chris Pratt made a joke on a press junket with Jennifer Lawrence. It was of a delightfully transphobic nature. “Transphobic” because that’s the term we’d use in 2016. Ten years ago we’d just call it “a joke” and laugh ourselves into tears. Plus, isn’t Jennifer Lawrence the woke celebrity of the day (see Jennifer Lawrence Tries To Troll Trump. Looks Stupid Instead and Jennifer Lawrence’s Asinine Statement On ‘Republicans.’)?
Oh, in no way is this safe for work…
Yes, Chris Pratt went there with Jennifer Lawrence. Oh boy, I can't wait for the outrage pieces to hit. pic.twitter.com/KTszNN5d2H

Ten years ago, this joke? We’d just say “well played, sir.” But today?
Because Chris Pratt said JLaw has a d!ck! He used a transphobic joke! HOW DARE HE BE SO INSENSITIVE! Even the two Radio One talking heads got a bit nervous there. Did you catch them?
Granted, it was part of a segment where the two stars were SUPPOSED to insult each other, as you’ll see below…
Making fun of each other for fun. It’s a segment now. It’s supposed to be (and in this case IS) funny. Not meant to be taken seriously. It’s for the LOLs. Remember when we used to have LOLs just for the fun of it, when we weren’t all hot and bothered about tiny segments of the population getting hot and bothered? Me neither. But perhaps this segment will serve as a flashback to how it used to be before leftist butt monkeys took the fun out of life.
The attacks from leftist fake news sites like Salon, HuffPo, and BuzzFeed haven’t started yet…but they maybe coming. What with the obvious transphobic nature of implying a woman had a penis. And Pratt was somehow bothered by said penis.
Well Chris Pratt had a feeling some sort of outrage was incoming. That’s why, knowing he was going to make a joke at some point, he apologized for it over a year ago…
In case you haven’t caught on, our tongues are firmly in our cheeks as we’re writing this. We sincerely hope no outrage at all is incoming. It’s just a joke, people. And a darn good one, might I add. Saying Lawrence has a weiner? Classic. Perhaps Chris Pratt will sidestep the outrage if he cashes in his male white privilege chips. Or his handsome chips. Both just to be safe.
Either way, thanks Chris Pratt for allowing us the opportunity to mock the outrage culture before people had an opportunity to be outraged. Think the movie Minority Report.
