Chris Pratt is getting support from some of his very A-list Marvel friends on the internet this week. But before you get all worried, no, there's nothing actually that serious going on—it's just another round in the battle of the Hollywood Chrises.

It seems like every few months some version of “Which Hollywood Chris Is the Best—Or the Worst?” pops up online with people comparing Pratt, Chris Evans, Chris Pine, and Chris Hemsworth. It happened again on October 17 when Amy Berg tweeted, “One has to go,” along with photos of the four actors.

Pratt, in particular, started trending and was dubbed by many to be the “worst Chris.”

Pratt's wife, Katherine Schwarzenegger, and some of his Marvel costars, like Robert Downey Jr., Mark Ruffalo, and Zoe Saldana, felt compelled to share their opinions on the matter.

Schwarzenegger commented on an E! News post about the situation, per People. “There’s so much going on in the world and people are struggling in so many ways,” she said. “Being mean is so yesterday. There’s enough room to love all these guys. Love is what we all need not meanness and bullying. Let’s try that.”

“What a world... The ‘sinless’ are casting stones at my #brother, Chris Pratt... A real #Christian who lives by #principle, has never demonstrated anything but #positivity and #gratitude... AND he just married into a family that makes space for civil discourse and (just plain fact) INSISTS on service as the highest value,” Downey wrote. “If you take issue with Chris,,, I’ve got a novel idea.
Delete your social media accounts, sit with your OWN defects of #character, work on THEM, then celebrate your humanness... @prattprattpratt I #gotyerbackbackback”

“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,” Ruffalo tweeted. “This is a distraction. Let’s keep our eyes on the prize, friends. We are so close now.”

Saldana tweeted, “No matter how hard it gets, stick your chest out, keep your head up and handle it. -Tupac You got this @prattprattpratt. Your family, friends, colleagues & everyone who’s ever crossed paths with you knows your heart and your worth!”

Honestly, it all seems a bit much for something that was, essentially, a joke. It's not as if Chris Pratt is actually being voted out of…anything. But that's the internet in 2020 for you.
