Chris Pratt is getting a little heat for his latest Instagram post. While trying to get fans to vote for Onward for the People’s Choice Awards, he throws light shade at celebrities that encouraging voting in the upcoming election.
He wrote, ” With all that’s going on in the world it is more important than ever that you vote. Just ask any celebrity. They will tell you. Every day. Several times a day. To vote. But me? I will tell you EXACTLY who to vote for. #onward The heroes before us did not spill their blood only to have their sacrifices wasted by your apathy.”
“The upcoming 2020 People’s Choice Awards is the most consequential vote in the history of mankind times a million infinity. Vote for #Onward for family movie of the year. Or else. You WILL die. No hyperbole. Click the link in my bio. Let your voice be heard.”
In the comments, many of his followers didn’t appreciate his caption. One wrote, “I get this is supposed to be a cute little joke but it comes off as really insensitive. The upcoming election is really important and everyone should vote and for you to try and take that and turn it into an ad for your movie is low.” Another fan added, “Chris what the f— this ain’t it,” and another simply put, “Delete this.”
On Twitter, there was a mix of reactions. See some below.
