“I am a fan of yours. I like your movies, you’re funny. But I didn’t know you were a hunter… know this won’t matter to you or anyone else one bit, but I won’t be following you anymore nor will I pay to see any of your movies.”
“I’m so disappointed that you hunt.”
“You shoot defenseless animals with high-powered rifles? OK. You’ve gone down in my estimations. Shame.”
“No! Unfollowing with a heavy heart.”
“Feel sick at the thought of you taking an animal’s life.”
We don’t have to get into this nonsense, as people don’t seem to realize the preparation Pratt puts into his hunts, and that he has immense respect for the animal (including eating it, of course).
Years prior, Pratt sat down with The Guardian, and went into further detail.
“I have a great deal of respect for the animals that I kill, and I feel remorse and all of the emotions that come with it.”
“The thing inside me that drives me to go out and hunt is very animal. But the remorse, emotion and respect I feel, and the closeness to God that I feel when I’m out there, is my humanity.
It’s an opportunity for me to explore what parts of me are animal and what parts of me are human.”
Joe Rogan has even weighed in multiple times on the backlash Chris Pratt receives.
“Chris Pratt is a nice guy.”
