Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger arrive for the world premiere of Marvel Studios' "Avengers: Endgame" at the Los Angeles Convention Center on April 22, 2019.

The complaints about Pratt cited everything from his allegedly being a Trump supporter to a claim a year ago that Pratt supported a church with anti-LGBTQ views, the latter of which Pratt has denied. However, his wife Katherine Schwarzenegger defended him on Instagram in the replies to an E!

Ruffalo called out the poll as a "distraction" (which, okay, fair enough), while Downey Jr. praised Pratt for being a "A real #Christian who lives by #principle".

James Gunn, who worked with the actor on the "Guardians of The Galaxy" franchise, took on Twitter trolls and reiterated Pratt's views on LGBTQIA rights.

Chris Pratt's Marvel co-stars Mark Ruffalo, Zoe Saldana and Robert Downey Jr. also took up for the actor after he came under fire over the weekend from fans questioning why he has not been more politically engaged about current events, given his platform as one of Hollywood's biggest names. "AND he just married into a family that makes space for civil discourse and (just plain fact) INSISTS on service as the highest value", he said in an Instagram post. "Delete their social media accounts, sit down together with their own personality defects, work with them and celebrate their humanity", he mentioned Robert in protection of his buddy.

Twitter may not be loving Chris Pratt these days, but he gets by with a little help from his friends.

Another added: "Chris Pratt really wants us to feel bad for Chris Pratt and that's simply not going to happen while he secretly supports Donald Trump". Let's maintain our eyes on the prize, buddies. Love is what all of us needn't meanness and bullying. One commenter noted that many people became mind readers nowadays, as Chris Pratt only did something they didn't like, but they instantly know everything about him.

There was a unusual dust-up online Tuesday when the age old "who is the best Chris" debate was revived with teeth, leading to an outpouring of defense via actors from the MCU and beyond. Being mean is so yesterday. "Is this really what we need?" "We are so close now", he wrote.

The actor was referring to Pratt's marriage to Katherine Schwarzenegger, daughter of Hollywood superstar Arnold Schwarzenegger who has been a Republican Governor of California.

"There's sufficient room to like all these guys".

"Sorry. Just finding out about this nonsense". I'm totally sick of it but hey, at least Chris Pratt remains cool and unbothered about the allegations thrown at him. "You could've just said "please vote for me" and not make jokes on dying or joking about this VERY important election".

Mark insisted Chris is a "solid" man and shouldn't be singled out for his assumed conservative views.

Her comment didn't exactly turn around perception.
