Actor Chris Pratt Trolls 'Woke' Critics of Hit Show 'The Terminal List'

Actor Chris Pratt did not hold back in responding to “woke critics” on the entertainment rating site “Rotten Tomatoes” after the site certified his massive new Amazon Prime hit “The Terminal List” as “rotten.”

The show revolves around Pratt’s character, James Reece, a U.S. Navy SEAL commander determined to find out who was responsible for killing his platoon as he seeks to extract revenge.

As noted by Fox News, critics did not like the show but many fans nevertheless sounded off in Pratt’s defense, as the audience score on the movie and TV review site came in at 94 percent “fresh.”

Fox News added:

In a brazen move, the “Wanted” star took to his Instagram story, sharing a report that suggested the actor defied “woke critics.”

In a follow-up post, Pratt shared a picture of the infamous Dr. Evil from the “Austin Powers” films, referencing the enormous amount of people who had streamed his show on Prime Video that had clearly disregarded any negative commentary. 

According to Nielsen reports, at least 1.6 billion minutes were devoted to streaming Pratt’s new show.

Per the official Instagram page for “The Terminal List,” last month the show was rated No. 1 on Prime Video, with reviews left on Amazon’s site overwhelmingly positive, according to Fox News.

Pratt has faced the woke wrath before, having been ripped for attending a church the left predictably labeled as being “anti-LGBTQ.”

But, per Fox News in a separate report, Pratt noted in a cover story interview for the July/August issue of Men’s Health that he is “not a religious person” and has never been to Hillsong Church after facing criticism for being associated with the Christian religion for years.

Pratt, who also starred in “Guardians of the Galaxy,” was linked to the church, but at the time he said, “Nothing could be further from the truth.”

“I never went to Hillsong. I’ve never actually been to Hillsong. I don’t know anyone from that church,” he shared with Men’s Health. Pratt said he decided not to say that at the time because he didn’t want to “throw a church under the bus.”

Pratt went on to say that while he occasionally attends Zoe Church, he also sometimes goes to a Catholic Church his wife, Katherine Schwarzenegger, grew up attending.

The “Jurassic World Dominion” actor said as well that, “really I’m not a religious person” adding, “Religion has been oppressive as f— for a long time.”

While he doesn’t consider himself as religious, he nevertheless said that he has faith.

“I didn’t know that I would kind of become the face of religion when really I’m not a religious person. I think there’s a distinction between being religious — adhering to the customs created by man, oftentimes appropriating the awe reserved for who I believe is a very real God — and using it to control people, to take money from people, to abuse children, to steal land, to justify hatred,” he said.

“Whatever it is. The evil that’s in the heart of every single man has glommed on to the back of religion and come along for the ride,” he added.
