Joe Rogan: The Left Demonizes Chris Pratt Because ‘He’s a Christian’
Popular podcast host says liberal hate Christian actor because 'he's a good person'
Joe Rogan has slammed those on the Left who demonize Hollywood star Chris Pratt, arguing that he only receives so much negative attention because "he's an open Christian" and "a good person."
The popular podcast host noted that Pratt has refused to go along with the rest of Hollywood's liberal idealogy.
"He’s kind of outside the lines in terms of his ideology,” Rogan said while speaking about Pratt during his show.
"He’s a Christian and he’s pretty open about it, and because of that they attack him.”
“It’s something so simple," the host explained.
"Like he just believes in Jesus and he like, you know, he likes to be a good person and they’re like ‘f*** him!'”
Rogan started the segment by speaking of Hollywood celebrities, mostly actors, being scared to step “outside the lines,” noting that they fear they’ll be blacklisted.
“Even Chris Pratt gets in trouble because he’s Christian,” Rogan said.
Pratt “is the nicest guy I’ve ever met in my life,” he added.
Rogan’s guest noted that Pratt has been dubbed the “worst Chris” multiple times online.
Rogan quickly blasted the hate and those promoting it.
“I don’t give a f*** what they think,” he said.
“They’re all insane people that hate their jobs that are sitting in front of the cubicle, when their boss isn’t looking, they’re tweeting bad things about Chris Pratt.”
Rogan is not wrong about the routine hate leveled at the actor.
Back in 2019, Pratt was trashed online for telling fans about a Bible-inspired fast he was participating in.
Online critics attacked Pratt soon after he told fans about a Bible-inspired fast centered around prayer called the “Daniel Fast.”
The “Guardian of the Galaxy” star, who’s been unapologetically open about his Christianity, was slammed for believing in “fairy tales” and making his way to “crazy town.”
Months earlier, the star was smeared by TV Guide for his “problematic” off-screen life.
One of the few Hollywood stars that conservatives feel actually sees the world from a similar point of view is “Guardians of the Galaxy” star Chris Pratt, who is willing to openly criticize aspects of liberal culture and proclaim his faith in God, while managing to never come off as self-righteous or self-serving.
So, perhaps it’s no surprise that TV Guide would feel compelled to write a hit-piece on Pratt warning its readers about his “problematic life offscreen” that is sure to offend their (presumably left-wing) sensibilities, including that he once mocked “outrage culture.”
The Pratt hit-piece is a part of a regrettable series of articles called “12 Days of Chris-Mas,” which highlights twelve actors named Chris over twelve days, leading up to “the best Chris” on Christmas.
Despite all of his supposed “problems,” Pratt comes in at number 5.
Even the tweeted caption promoting the piece includes the anti-Pratt angle, suggesting fans should feel guilty about loving Pratt.
