Cancel culture has run amok in Hollywood, and it’s spreading across the country.
Anyone who does not completely toe the line risks being “canceled” by the mob.
And one Christian Hollywood actor got targeted with a stomach-turning slander.
Hollywood star Chris Pratt has not been shy about his Christian faith.
Actress Ellen Page—who recently transitioned to Elliot Page—accused Pratt of homophobia for attending a church.
He once gave a rousing speech at the MTV Movie Awards where he thanked God.
That’s just one of the reasons that leftists have antipathy toward him.
Pratt once drew the ire of the left for wearing a “don’t tread on me” shirt and for going hunting.
Leftists also started an online campaign calling him Hollywood’s “worst Chris.”

Now one Twitter troll tried to “cancel” Pratt with two fake tweets.
One fake tweet featured the N-word, and the other said, “Muslims scare me so much!”
The Twitter user added the hashtag #ripchris in order to start a trend against Pratt.
A representative for Pratt responded:
“Chris never tweeted the offensive things that are being circulated today. Any suggestion that he did is not only totally false but also defamatory.”
A senior staff member at Twitter said they “strongly believe” the tweets were faked, and the online troll’s account was suspended.
The “Guardians of the Galaxy” star also faced backlash for not attending a table read fundraiser for Joe Biden.
Outspoken leftist actors Mark Ruffalo and Dave Bautista quelled the outcry by coming to Pratt’s defense, but it’s absurd that they even felt the need to do so.
You all, @prattprattpratt is as solid a man there is. I know him personally, and instead of casting aspersions, look at how he lives his life. He is just not overtly political as a rule. This is a distraction. Let’s keep our eyes on the prize, friends. We are so close now.

Pratt has never expressed any political views, but because he doesn’t perfectly align with the left, he’s ripe for criticism from the left.
Donald Trump broke the brain of many leftists in Hollywood, so the witch hunt for people who aren’t in lockstep with the Democrats has only gotten worse.
All of the fake controversy around Pratt has bounced off him, but if he ever does step out of line, the cancel mob will definitely come for his scalp.
