It’s not a new thing to see famous people get hated on the internet, for doing something people see as wrong, or just doing what they love.
Most people that can’t handle these kind of situations, just stay off social media, especially Twitter. This social space, is a place everyone gets to air their opinions about stuff and trend while at it.
Even celebrities are prone to insults and hate, as they’re humans after all. Many celebrities have been slammed and criticized on social media before, so it’s really not a new thing.

This made people conclude that he was a Donald Trump supporter. So, fans who were anti-Trump, started looking at Pratt in a completely different light.
They also started wondering about his faith and religion, that is the kind of church Pratt attends and that was where the messy situation started from.
Pratt attends the Hillsong Church, and one thing most people relate with Church, is its intolerance towards the LGBTQ population. When the news that Pratt is a member of Hillsong church came to light, fans saw an opportunity to call him out.
Elliot Page made a tweet, directly faulting the actor, for the church he worships at.
The tweet read “If you are a famous actor and you belong to an organization that hates a certain group of people, don’t be surprised if someone simply wonders why it’s not addressed.”
Pratt replied to this tweet saying “It has recently been suggested that I belong to a church which ‘hates a certain group of people’ and is ‘infamously anti-LGBTQ.’ Nothing could be further from the truth.”
Why Is Pratt Receiving So Much Hate?
There is no single story as to why this hashtag arose, however, reports have confirmed that fans dwelling on past anger, resulting from former controversies the actor has been involved in.
There were several tweets that compared Pratt with the other actors named Chris in the industry, including, Chris Evans, Chris Pine, and Chris Hemsworth. Social media users said that Pratt is less important compared to the others.
Since series of insults and degrading remarks that Pratt received, some of his co-stars came out in his defence.
Zoe Saldana his co-star on “Guardians of the Galaxy” tweeted;
“No matter how hard it gets, stick your chest out, keep your head up and handle it. -Tupac”
“You got this @prattprattpratt. Your family, friends, colleagues & everyone who’s ever crossed paths with you knows your heart and your worth!”
Although some of the hate that Pratt received online seems to be unfounded, some people still believe he is a good person and would never want to hurt his fans.
