So over the weekend, the Marvel star made a little joke about voting. He was promoting his Pixar film “Onward” on Instagram and encouraged his followers to vote.
“With all that’s going on in the world it is more important than ever that you vote,” Pratt wrote. “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. The heroes before us did not spill their blood only to have their sacrifices wasted by your apathy.”
Then he hit his followers with the punchline. “The upcoming 2020 People’s Choice Awards is the most consequential vote in the history of mankind times a million infinity. Vote for #Onward for family movie of the year. Or else. You WILL die. No hyperbole. Click the link in my bio. Let your voice be heard,” he wrote.
For the comedy challenged, the humor is that he urged everyone to vote, and many no doubt thought he was weighing in on the 2020 presidential election. But he wasn’t. Ba dum boom.
Cue the PC police. They immediately came down hard on Pratt for his little joke, which was “liked” by more than 440,000 followers.
