Left-wing, social media trolls are trying to cancel mega Hollywood star Chris Pratt because he didn’t attend a fundraiser for US Presidential candidate Joe Biden. All the major cast members for the movie The Avengers, except Pratt, agreed to attend.
After the news about this surface, Twitter trolls immediately turned on Pratt stating the popular movie actor should be cancelled from future Marvel movies.
Through out his career, Chris has been apolitical stating that neither party truly represents his views. Of course, once the trolling started they quickly turned on Pratt’s Christian faith.

“One has to go,” she wrote in the post, playing on a popular meme that began by Twitter users asking followers to eliminate one of four pictured Halloween candies.
The tweet has amassed thousands of comments, mostly suggesting that Pratt “go,” citing his rumored political views — he has not officially endorsed a candidate — and his support of a church that was accused of being anti-LGBTQ, per Yahoo! Entertainment.
The Daily Wire writes that some Twitter trolls accused Pratt of “radiating ‘homophobic white Christian supremacist energy.'”

Chris Pratt’s Marvel co-stars Mark Ruffalo and Robert Downey Jr have rallied to defend the actor after so-called woke warriors slammed his conservative political beliefs and Christian faith.

How Chris Pratt became a Christian
In an interview with Esquire Magazine, Chris shared how he became a Christian. He was standing outside a liquor store in Hawaii waiting for friends, when a man approached Chris with a prophetic word.
Pratt explained what happened next:
“I stopped because Jesus told me to stop and talk to you. He said to tell you you’re destined for great things.” […]
“My friends came out, and I was like, ‘Hey, I’m gonna go with this guy.’ I gave my soul to Jesus within, like, two days. I was stuffing envelopes for his organization, Jews for Jesus. I’m not even sure, at that age—I was nineteen years old—I knew what Jewish was.”
Chris was working as a server in a restaurant in Hawaii at the time, and four weeks later a Hollywood producer came in for a meal and as they often quip, the rest is history. READ: “That would be good for the story, wouldn’t it? If an alligator bit my hand?“: Esquire
