Chris Pratt, best known for his roles in Marvel films like “Guardians of the Galaxy” and “Avengers,” is one A-list actor who loves his country and isn’t afraid to show it. So, when the paparazzi caught him wearing an American Gadsen flag t-shirt, the Hollywood crowd called him a “white supremacist” and hoped to wreck his career. Well, Pratt got the last laugh. You’ll love this.

Yahoo News cobbled together a handful of social media users who attacked actor Chris Pratt this week, accusing him of wearing a “white supremacist” dog-whistle after Vulture staff writer Hunter Harris tweeted a photo of the patriotic A-lister wearing an American flag T-shirt with “Don’t Tread On Me” and the Gadsden flag coiled rattlesnake superimposed on it.

“[O]ver the years the flag has been adopted by Far Right political groups like the Tea Party, as well as gun-toting supporters of the Second Amendment,” Yahoo News reported in an article titled: “Chris Pratt criticised for T-shirt choice.”

“It has therefore become a symbol of more conservative and far-right individuals and, according to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission of the US, it also is sometimes interpreted to convey racially-tinged messages in some contexts,” they added.

“I like him, but all these small things about his politics makes me wonder when he’ll say something transphobic, tank his career, and do the full heel-turn into a Fox commentator,” tweeted Tim Byrne.

Unfollowed already. Haven’t liked him since Parks & Rec anyhow, and I can easily cancel him in that too. @prattprattpratt hope those bigots pay you a good pay check. Bye girl,” tweeted Areola Grande.

“Reasons to unstan Chris Pratt – he’s homophobic – he has compared divorce to homosexuals – he goes to a church that infamously has a child abuse past – he’s defended the church many times – He wears shirts that promote white supremacists – A Trump Supporter,” tweeted “a Chris Evans whore.”

Well, Chris Pratt is getting the last laugh. Not only does he not give a rat’s ass about what the Hollywood leftists think about him, his Catholic faith, or his fashion choices, but he also has no qualms about being patriotic in public.

The Minnesota-born star has long supported the military and police and is open about his deeply held faith in God. In March 2016, Pratt helped erect a 20-foot cross on Easter Sunday. In June 2018, Pratt shared his “Nine rules from Chris Pratt” at the MTV Movie and TV Awards.

The actor told the millennial audience and those watching at home that “God is real, He loves you, learn to pray, you have a soul, and you should take care of it.”

Navy Seal Carl Higbie tweeted, “How the hell is the ‘don’t tread on me’ flag, which is fully authorized by the ⁦@USNavy racist? Stay strong ⁦@prattprattpratt Chris Pratt Smeared as ‘White Supremacist’ for Wearing Gadsden Flag Shirt.”

Steven Crowder tweeted, “Love the shirt. Glad that there are a still a few decent human beings in Hollywood like Chris Pratt. Otherwise, I guess it’d just be an endless sea of sexual abusers, rapists and pedophiles.”

Dear @YahooEnt News: Your article on Chris Pratt wearing a ‘white supremacist’ shirt is complete leftist bullsh*t. It’s a pro-2A shirt, which is one of our constitutional rights. You hate him because he is Christian and a patriot. Go f_ck yourself,” tweeted Mindy Robinson.

Just last month, Pratt married the daughter of Arnold Schwarzenegger, Katherine, whose mother, Maria Shriver, is part of the Kennedy clan. Many are speculating that Chris Pratt might leave Hollywood at some point to have a career in politics.

Whatever the 40-year-old actor decides to do, we all know he will let his faith in God and his deep love of our country guide him. It’s so refreshing to see a big Hollywood star not hate this country and openly support it. It’s just crazy to think this is where we are at in this country — when wearing a pro-America t-shirt makes the leftists label you a “white supremacist.”
