Merry Christmas. Thank the baby Jesus you didn’t wake up a repulsive internet goblin. Because earlier this week, a hateful elf actually wrote an article for TV Guide called How to Love Chris Pratt Without Hating Yourself.
This is the kind of thing you would expect to read in leftist fanzines like the Huffington Post or BuzzFeed. But no, this gem comes from what you’d assume is the non-political TV Guide.
When you take a deeper look at Pratt the man and not necessarily Pratt the actor, some of the shine wears off. Although he can be as funny offscreen as he is on — his recurring “What’s My Snack” videos on Instagram are almost always delightful — it’s impossible to ignore some problematic aspects of his life offscreen.
Those aspects are as follows:
He gave away his cat.
He likes to hunt. Something we all love about him.
He doesn’t have time for outrage culture. Again, no problems here.
And he said people should turn up the volume on Instagram videos. Which triggered the deaf. Though I think it was more liberals being outraged on behalf of the deaf.
Shockingly, the author left out Pratt’s belief in Jesus Christ. But you knew the author was thinking it.
Here’s an idea for liberals who find it hard to be a fan of someone who has an opposing viewpoint than they do: grow up. Because you know the conservatives you make fun of any time they complain liberal actors who are douchebags about their liberalness? That’s what you look like complaining about people like Chris Pratt. Throw in some bad word combinations like “Hollyweird” and you’re dead to us.
No one is perfect. The people you admire on screen aren’t perfect. How about liking them for their breadth of work and leaving it at that? Why go and ruin everything by insisting everyone you like on screen aligns with you on everything off screen?
