Joe Rogan Defends Chris Pratt: ‘He’s a Christian, and Because of That, They Attack Him’
By Movieguide® Staff
Popular podcast host Joe Rogan recently noted how Hollywood and left-leaning individuals criticize actor Chris Pratt because he is an outspoken Christian.
“He’s kind of outside the lines in terms of his ideology,” Rogan said on his podcast. “He’s a Christian and he’s pretty open about it, and, because of that they attack him.”
“It’s something so simple, like, he just believes in Jesus,” Rogan continued. “And … he likes to be a good person and they’re like, ‘[Expletive] him!'”
In the podcast episode, Rogan and his guest—digital artist, graphic designer and animator “Beeple” AKA Michael Joseph Winkelmann—discussed Pratt and why mainstream media attacks the GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY actor.
“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 continued. “You see someone being vulnerable and you can snipe at them and you don’t have any repercussions and they’re not in front of you so you attack the guy.”
Rogan noted that when he has interacted with Pratt in person, Pratt has done nothing to warrant the harsh criticisms.
“He hasn’t done nothing,” Rogan said. “He’s so nice. Chris Pratt is like one of the nicest people I’ve ever met in my life. He’s genuinely friendly. I’ve been in hunting camp with him. He’s nice to everybody. My point is I’ve seen him interact with people. He’s a super kind, super normal guy.”
Recently the JURASSIC WORLD actor came under fire after posting about his wife, Katherine Katherine Schwarzenegger.
