Actor Chris Pratt speaks the truth and immediately apologizes for it

Chris Pratt

Uh-oh! Actor Chris Pratt did something really awful.

He had the temerity to speak the truth.

And, as we all know, “in a time of universal deceit speaking the truth is a revolutionary act.” So says George Orwell anyway.

In an interview with Men’s Fitness, Pratt said what is blazingly obvious to everyone on Planet Earth.

“The voice of the average, blue-collar American isn’t necessarily represented in Hollywood.”

Oh, the HUMANITY!!!

Now, tell me. Who would disagree with that?

Well, permit me to answer my own question. Butt-hurt, virtue-signaling Leftists who take offense at absolutely everything — that’s who.

”How dare you?! Hollywood makes movies about blue collar Americans all the time! Besides, we all know what you mean by ‘blue-collar American.’ You mean ‘straight, white, cis males.’”

Oy vey.

But rather than simply ignore these butt-hurt, easily offended Leftists who were howling like wounded beagles, Chris Pratt apologized.

Sure, there may be movies about blue collar America. But that doesn’t make what Pratt said wrong — let alone “pretty stupid.”

Just the other day, I was watching an episode of “Major Crimes” where two men dressed as Santa get shot after a bank robbery.

And one of the dead Santas was a guy from North Dakota.

The detectives from Major Crimes bring in his wife to question her.

As much as I enjoy “Major Crimes,” that scene is painful to watch.

This North Dakota wife was portrayed as a gun-toting yahoo with a heavy Texas twang.

So realistic.

And the writers and the actress who portrayed her chose to make her nothing more than a buffoonish caricature.

But that isn’t the only example I call pull off the top of my head.

There’s an episode of “Ugly Betty” where Betty and her coworkers are trying to get to her boss while he is at a retreat a couple hours north of New York City.

After their car breaks down, Betty walks to a nearby store to ask the owner for a ride to the retreat.

The owner of this Upstate New York grocery is a yahoo with a southern twang who can’t drive her because his license was revoked for a “Dee Dubya Ah.”

Sure. People who live two hours north of Manhattan talk like Gomer Pyle.

But this is what Hollywood thinks of people who live in flyover country.

We’re all just gap-toothed, inbred dummies with Southern accents.

The writers of “Major Crimes” or “Ugly Betty” are no different from anyone else in Hollywood.

They’re condescending and intolerant of us goobers who live in the rest of America.

And that disrespect is painfully obvious not only in the way they portray regular Americans on screen, but how they treat us off screen.

What was it Meryl Streep said in her Golden Globes speech? Without those altruistic actors, the only arts yahoo Americans would have is Mixed Martial Arts.

That is what they think of us.

So, again I ask.

What exactly is incorrect about what Chris Pratt said?

Hollywood may portray average blue collar America in movies and TV. But they are hard-pressed to disguise their condescending disdain.

Which, to me, makes Pratt’s statement spot-on.

And why he felt the need to apologize for what he said, I will never know.

These Leftists are never going to stop being offended. So why on earth indulge them by apologizing every time you speak the truth?

You’ll never have time to do anything else.

    I know this will mark me as culturally unaware, but who is this guy.
    Beyond the fact that I don’t know who he is….any thing that comes out of the entertainment industry is only purposed to mock those not part of the coastal elites.

    Either your knowledge regarding TV and movies is sorely lacking or you’re wilfully ignoring things in oder to be able to peddle your narrative.

    You obviously have no empirical data, so you’re just extrapolating from two singular anecdotes.

    And ignoring loveletters to rural US like Fargo (the series rather than the film, but even that’s quite good), virtually all road movies playing in the US, movies like Out Of The Furnace, Winter’s Bone, Boyhood etc. pp. (the list goes on).

    Is Hollywood in general pretty liberal, intellectual and aloof? Sure, the movie industry is a cerebral business. Same would be generally true for Silicon Valley – businesses that depend on formal education tend not to have much representation from “rural, blue-collar” America. The reverse is true as well for that matter. On the other hand, it’s undeniable that the terms in question have found increased usage as a stand-in for straight white male, a sort of code if you will that is in effect actually just as unfair to rural, blue color Americans as the stereotypes in the examples you found so objectionable.

      “Sure, the movie industry is a cerebral business.”
      Really? Where is your empirical data backing up that claim?

      “it’s undeniable that the terms in question have found increased usage as a stand-in for straight white male”
      Undeniable? Where is your empirical data backing up that claim?
