In an attempt to get out in front of the “political correct police,” actor Chris Pratt has become an Internet sensation.
About to embark on a press tour for the new film “Jurassic World,” the actor posted a lengthy preemptive apology on Facebook for any and all offensive comments he’s likely to make.
“I want to make a heartfelt apology for whatever it is I end up accidentally saying during the forthcoming #JurassicWorld press tour,” he wrote Friday. “I hope you understand it was never my intention to offend anyone and I am truly sorry.”
“I’m the nicest guy in the world. And I fully regret what I (accidentally will have) said in (the upcoming foreign and domestic) interview(s).”
Pratt also shared his epic pre-apology on Twitter, and it became all the rage with social media users — and according to the responses, his fans have already “pre-forgiven” him.
Here’s a sampling from Twitter:

@jpodhoretz Wow, just wow. Can’t wait to see what the “delicate snowflake” contingent says about that. Or will they not get it?
