Chris Pratt Criticized Over ‘White Supremacist’ T-Shirt

Chris Pratt labeled white supremacist by Yahoo for wearing flag t-shirt

Hollywood actor Chris Pratt has been smeared as a “white supremacist” for wearing a T-shirt featuring the Gadsden flag.

The “Guardians of the Galaxy” star was seen wearing a T-shirt featuring the American flag with a coiled rattlesnake in front of it with text reading, “Don’t tread on me.”

The “Don’t tread on me” motto and coiled rattlesnake are from the iconic Gadsden flag, originally created in 1775 by American general Christopher Gadsden during the Revolutionary War.

It symbolizes freedom and liberty. reports: In recent years, the flag has been revived by the Tea Party.

The Yahoo Movies UK article, titled “Chris Pratt criticized for ‘white supremacist’ T-shirt,” stated: “Although it is one of the symbols and flags used by the U.S. Men’s Soccer Team, Metallica, as well as some libertarian groups, over the years the flag has been adopted by Far Right political groups like the Tea Party, as well as gun-toting supporters of the Second Amendment,” the article described the Gadsden flag.

“It has therefore become a symbol of more conservative and far right individuals and, according to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission of the US, it also is ‘sometimes interpreted to convey racially-tinged messages in some contexts.'”

The article also included six posts from Twitter users knocking Pratt’s shirt, one of them accusing the actor of wearing a shirt with a “white supremacist dogwhistle.”

But many blasted the article on Twitter, with Conservative commentator Ben Shapiro calling it “pure idiocy.”

“Not every symbol of the early republic is a white supremacist symbol, unless you are a moron,” Shapiro wrote, hinting at the controversy surrounding the Betsy Ross flag earlier this month.

Reason editor Robby Soave compared the article to the “black Ariel controversy” where some in the media claimed there was backlash over Disney’s casting of black singer Halle Bailey as the lead role in a live-action adaptation of “The Little Mermaid.”

“No one was actually mad. Twitter distorts,” Soave tweeted.

“Shame on ⁦@Yahoo⁩ for this trash,” syndicated columnist Jonah Goldberg reacted. “A handful of dumb Twitter comments isn’t a news story you click-baiting parasites. There nothing white supremacist about that T-shirt. It’s like everyone wants to be stupid and make everything worse.”

Vulture staff writer Hunter Harris also shared a photo of Pratt wearing the T-shirt with his new wife Katherine Schwarzenegger on Monday. Harris’ tweet generated some reactions on Twitter.

“Nice. Glad to see someone in hollywood actually supports people’s right to defend themselves,” one user wrote in response to Harris, while another commented,” Gadsen flag. I love it! Where can I buy mine?”

A rep for Pratt did not return Fox News’ request for comment.


  1. He supports the wanna-be child molester James Gunn unconditionally. This doesn’t surprise me in the least.

  2. White do not regard themselves as Gods chosen people and white do not regard themselves as racially superior to all others by virtue of Gods will, only Jews think that.

      • They don’t think it is from God now do they kyke? And they don’t accuse whites of what they themselves think they are now do they retard?

  3. These people are so purposely twisted and subverted by their TRIBE Overlords. They have lost their souls and are totally incapable of caring for anyone or anything other than their own personal wealth, because in the end, the final conclusion, this is all about one thing ; MONEY. Money for Elites, lazy good-for-nothing spoiled useless brats and arrogant snobs, slouches, and perverts who just want to extort the entire damn world. NO ONE could beat Donald Trump because not one other candidate is HONEST, and Trump may not tell us everything that he thinks, but this man loves this country and cares about its future and has common sense about what is right and what is wrong, and lemme tell ya ; DEMOCRATS ARE WRONG !! and they are filthy rotten liars and bastards, and America is sick to goddamn death of these corrupt creeps and their stupid Socialism movement. I mean, how STOOOOOOOOOPID can you be to even contemplate Socialism in America ? Truth is, Socialism is a ladder to Globalism. Why do you think college is so expensive, healthcare out of control financially, homes nearly unattainable for young people, opioids so readily available, the border inundated with illegals ? WHYYYYYYYYY ? Because it was engineered to reduce the options of younger voters so that they would see Socialism as the ONLY way out. Do you see that ? Do you know who is responsible for that ? Who masterminded it ? That’s right, THE TRIBE. Now, only a fool would vote for a Democrat, and Trump knows all this, and his formula for this country is WORKING and the TRIBE knows it and they HATE HIM. But WE THE PEOPLE love him, and this is OUR damn country, not the TRIBE’S !! Got it ?
