Some branded Pratt as ‘Hollywood’s Worst Chris’ as they pointed to his involvement in the conservative Zoe Church in Los Angeles as evidence that he’s secretly a fan of former President Donald Trump. 

Pratt’s pals in the Marvel Cinematic Universe including Mark Ruffalo, Zoe Saldana and Robert Downey Jr. defended his character.

Pratt’s wife Katherine Schwarzenegger joined the conversation by replying to an Instagram post about the controversy from E! as the author and new mother, 31, wrote in a comment: ‘Is this really what we need?’

‘There’s so much going on in the world and people are struggling in so many ways,’ Katherine continued. ‘Being mean is so yesterday. There’s enough room to love all these guys. Love is what we all need not meanness and bullying. Let’s try that.’
