You may recognize actor Chris Pratt from the hit television series Parks & Recreation, or perhaps you’ve seen him on the big screen in Jurassic World – a role that shot him into the A-list category of actors – but you’d probably be surprised to find out what he does in his spare time. A “disturbing” photo he posted to Instagram sheds light into his personal life, and it sent the bleeding hearts into a frenzy.
Also known for his role in Guardians of the Galaxy, Pratt has made quite a name for himself in the Hollywood world, which comes as a surprise given his roots. You see, Pratt is a proud Christian American, who loves our troops and can’t stand political correctness. He grew up in the country and loves to show off his backwoods roots.
In a recent Instagram post, Pratt uploaded a picture of himself preparing fresh venison to throw in the freezer, and some people weren’t too happy about it. Naturally, the animal lovers came out in force to decry his “barbarism,” but Pratt offered zero apologies for filling his freezer with “tasty” deer meat.
Here I am vacuum packing some deer meat in the kitchen. I grew up in the woods. Not literally. I mean, we had a house. I wasn't raised by coyotes. But I spent a lot of time in the woods. Hunting, fishing and being outdoors with my friends and family is how I spent my free time as a young'n. That part of me will never change. I mean. I'm assuming. I don't know. Maybe it will. It hasn't yet. Maybe one day I'll wake up and be like, "I'm only gonna eat veggies for the rest of my life." If I do that's cool. It's a free country. Anyways. I just filled the freezer with a bunch of tasty meat from an awesome deer hunt in the great state of Texas. Oh! I should tell you: I'm going to start a diet I called "The Game Plan" where basically I only eat wild game for a year. "The Game Plan," get it? Cause GAME? I mean I'll also eat veggies and fruit and other stuff too. But for one year I want to eat only the meats that were caught or killed by me or my friends. Total free range organic wild game! The game plan. Join me. I mean I'm gonna still eat eggs and probably chicken and probably steak I mean I gotta have steak and oysters and definitely bacon. But other than that. And the occasional burger for a cheat meal. But other than that only wild game. The game plan. I should mention I will also have sushi because I have to have sushi because it's so good. And pepperoni. But that's not a meat technically, right? But other than that all wild game. And pepperchinis! (That's not how you spell that) Exclusively wild game. It will be tough. But it's worth the sacrifice. I will be eating turkey for thanksgiving. Probably fried. That's the best. And also ham. For Easter we make lamb. That's great. Ill have to have lamb that day. So… "The Game Plan" Who's with me!?
Reactions varied, but many were along the lines of what these users had to say:
“Everything about this post is so disturbing”
“I absolutely love you as an actor, but I can’t get on board with this post #meatfreeisthewaytobe”
“This is extremely disturbing”
You get the idea. Anyways, the YoungCons pointed out something pretty cool about Pratt’s post, aside from him showing how to be a man’s man, that is. He’s wearing a shirt to honor slain Navy SEAL Mike Murphy, who was one of the fallen soldiers in Operation Red Wings, which you’re familiar with if you know the name Marcus Luttrell.
So, as I said before, given Pratt’s apparently conservative leanings and his willingness to be so public about it, it’s surprising that his career is taking off in the uber-left world of Hollyweird. Perhaps it’s a sign that the bastion of liberal ideology is changing? Doubtful, but at least we know it’s becoming less hostile to good, patriotic, conservative Americans.
