On Twitter he was targeted for his involvement in a conservative church and his support for Donald Trump.

He was the subject of a poll where users decided which Chris should be 'removed' from Hollywood.

The competition was between the 41-year-old actor, Chris Pine, Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth.

Robert Downey Jr shared a picture of him standing beside Pratt with a caption: "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..."

He added the hashtag #gotyerbackbackback.

Mark Ruffalo also waded in to defend his pal: "You all, Chris Platt 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."

One user wrote: "Chris Pratt is just like the worst."

Another wrote: "Chris Pratt because he's MAGA. He's the worst Chris."

It was previously claimed that the church he was a part of had anti-LGBTQ+ views. He has previously denied this.

They also noted that Pratt was not among the six Avengers stars who agreed to appear at a fundraiser for Joe Biden on Tuesday.  

Pratt has never spoken publicaly about the political party he supports, although it's believed he donated to President Barack Obama's campaign in 2012, Newsweek reported.

The initial post showed four pictures of the famous Chris' captioned "One has to go".

Katherine Schwarzenegger, Pratt's wife, had earlier slammed the "mean" social media posts comparing the stars named Chris.

"Is this really what we need?" Schwarzenegger she wrote.

"There's so much going on in the world and people struggling in so many ways. 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."

Chris Pratt was also criticised for urging fans to vote for his movie Onward to win a People's Choice Award.

It was branded 'tone deaf' and 'privileged' due to the importance of the upcoming election.

The Instagram post where he shared a picture of his Onward character read: "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."
