Why are These Haters So Easily Triggered by Chris Pratt’s Voice?


Just as man-babies around the Twitterverse were getting their eyes dried over news that Chris Pratt is voicing Mario, the tears have begun to flow anew over a report that Chris Pratt is voicing Garfield. The Hollywood Reporter broke this news that Chris would lend his voice to the “lasagna-loving, Monday-hating comic strip feline” in a new animated film. The iconic feline has previously been voiced by Bill Murray, in both 2004’s Garfield and 2006’s Garfield: A Tail of Two Kitties.


Lots of hurt fee-fees out there. 








Don’t remember this much hate over that last crappy cat movie… Cats. Chris also released a video on Instagram assuring everyone that he is working on Mario’s voice.

Why do they hate Chris Pratt so much? Surely not because he is a conservative Christian, but with so many moments where his politics, or lack thereof, or his involvement in a Christian church has gotten him in hot water. He was even accused in 2019 of being “anti-gay” by Ellen Page, to whom Pratt responded by saying that his church “opens its doors to absolutely everyone”.


Chalk it up to “haters gonna hate,” I guess. At least Robert Downey Jr. has his back.

I'm not as much of a "CoMiCs NeEd MoAr DiVeRsItY & iNcLuSiOn" advocate as my girlfriend often is, but we both love funny books, crispy bacon, straight bourbon and hip hop. Add yet, we never vote the same, so we cancel each other out... and that works perfectly in my book!
