Katherine Schwarzenegger Doesn’t Think Chris Pratt Is the Worst Hollywood Chris
Alexa, play "Stand By Your Man."
The great question of our generation came to the forefront again this week when E! News asked the internet which Hollywood Chris is the best. The network pitted Marvel's finest, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Pratt, and Chris Evans; and RBG die-hard Chris Pine (obviously leaving out the supreme of all Chrises, Kris Jenner, because she's the actual best). Fans were quick to single Pratt out as the worst, but Yahoo! reports that his wife, Katherine Schwarzenegger, commented on the post, saying that it was encouraging "meanness and bullying" and that there's enough love to go around for every Chris.
Yahoo! notes that the comments pointed at various reasons that Pratt could be seen as the "worst." Those reasons including his political beliefs (he's allegedly a Trump supporter, though he hasn't come out and said so), his religious beliefs (Ellen Page called him out for attending a church with anti-LGBTQ viewpoints.), and other things.

Schwarzenegger clapped back at all the negative comments, calling out E! for encouraging what she saw as an unnecessary comparison and pointing out that there's plenty more to be worried about right now.
"Is this really what we need? There's so much going on in the world and people are struggling in so many ways," she wrote. "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."
Fans weren't swayed, however, with several commenters letting her know that they're aware of what goes down at the church that she and her husband attend. Earlier this month, Pratt got called out for a tone-deaf post that poked fun at other celebrities encouraging voters to go out and cast their ballots. Instead of bringing attention to the upcoming presidential election, he urged his followers to vote for him in this year's People's Choice Awards.
Schwarzenegger isn't alone in coming to Pratt's defense. His Marvel co-stars Robert Downey Jr. and Mark Ruffalo also offered words of support.
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.

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. 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 (📸 @jimmy_rich )
