At the time Pratt denied the allegation, saying: "It has recently been suggested that I belong to a church which "hates a certain group of people" and is "infamously anti-LGBTQ".

The latest Hollywood Chris drama can be traced back to an October 17 tweet from screenwriter Amy Berg, who posted photos of Pratt, Pine, Evans and Hemsworth with the simple caption, "One has to go" - and you can probably guess who racked up the most nominations in the replies.

Her post came after the Jurassic World actor, who hasn't publicly aligned himself with any political party, mocked the importance of voting when he took a dig at celebrities wading into politics and then urging followers to vote. for his movie Onward at the People's Choice Awards. "Being mean is really yesterday" the mom of one remarked.

Kamala Harris (D-Calif). Social media users reacted negatively to Pratt's absence, with many blaming his lack of activism on his Christian faith. "We are so close now". Love is what all of us needn't meanness and bullying.

Avengers assemble: Mark Ruffalo, a passionate voice on the left in show business, tweeted: "You all, @prattprattpratt is as solid a man there is". A true christian that lives by principles, has never demonstrated anything more that positivity and gratitude (...) if you have a problem with Chris, I have an idea novel.

Zoe Saldana, who plays Gamora in "Guardians of the Galaxy", quoted late rapper Tupac Shakur in defending her friend. There's sufficient room to like all these guys.

Other commentators, though, pointed out that when other Marvel stars, including Brie Larson, Tessa Thompson, Zendaya and Saldana, have faced sexist and racist comments other personalities in the franchise have been conspicuously silent. AND he simply married right into a household that makes house for civil discourse and (simply plain truth) INSISTS on service as the best worth.

But this isn't the first time the Pratt has come under fire for his Christian beliefs, with the star forced to respond to claims past year that he supported a notoriously anti-LGBTQ church. "Delete your social media accounts, sit with your OWN defects of character, work on THEM, then celebrate your humanness". Someone wrote, "Well, seeing as three of them are progressive, and one of them actively defends his church for being homophobic". The actors tweeted their support for Pratt as accusations against his political allegiance kept coming.

"I do believe God's word is clear that marriage is between a man and a woman", he said, adding: "Hillsong Church welcomes ALL people but does not affirm all lifestyles".

On Monday, Schwarzenegger - who welcomed daughter Lyla with Pratt in August after marrying past year - got wind of the whole thing and called out the "meanness and bullying". Just finding out about this nonsense.
