Welcome to 21st century liberal Hollywood, where actor Chris Pratt is forced by the PC police to backtrack and apologize for saying something that’s so obviously true that you can tell it just by looking at the plummeting movie ticket sales.
And while we’re talking about people who make assumptions about race and gender, and who open their mouths without first engaging their brains, why did his critics automatically assume that when he said, “I don’t see personal stories that necessarily resonate with me, because they’re not my stories. I think there’s room for me to tell mine, and probably an audience that would be hungry for them. The voice of the average, blue-collar American isn’t necessarily represented in Hollywood,” he was talking exclusively about white males?
News flash to the SJWs who threw a Twit-storm at Pratt: out here in “flyover country,” there are an awful lot of blue collar workers of all races and religions, many of whom are women. Quite a few even vote Republican (gasp!) I’m a white male, but their stories would resonate with me, and I’d like to see them on screen. Maybe Hollywood movie makers should try visiting sometime, talk to some of those conservative, religious, blue collar workers they apparently disdain, and see about scheduling an attitude adjustment.
