Chris Pratt tells the truth about Hollywood; gets hammered for being a straight, white, conservative male

Actor Chris Pratt is backpedaling after taking heat for a comment he made in an interview about Hollywood’s disconnect from ‘blue-collar America.’

In an interview with “Men’s Fitness” the “Guardians of the Galaxy” star said that he didn’t ““see personal stories that necessarily resonate with me, because they’re not my stories,” Pratt told the outlet. “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 added that Hollywood’s obsession with politics hampers it from telling the common man’s stories.

“I really feel there’s common ground out there that’s missed because we focus on the things that separate us,” he said. “You’re either the red state or the blue state, the left or the right. Not everything is politics.

“And maybe that’s something I’d want to help bridge because I don’t feel represented by either side.”

It didn’t take long for snowflakes to hammer the “Parks and Recreation” star.

Mostly for being a straight, white, Christian, conservative male.

The pressure was enough for Pratt to issue an apology.

Although it is possible that this apology was meant to be as sarcastic as his preemptive apology to snowflakes before he did press for his “Jurassic World” movie.
