Twitter agrees: Chris Pratt is the worst Hollywood Chris

Twitter agrees: Chris Pratt is the worst Hollywood Chris

Twitter held a Chris-off — and Chris Pratt proved the crowd’s least favorite contender.

On Saturday, screenwriter and television producer Amy Berg gave Twitter a challenge. “One has to go,” the Oakland-born showrunner wrote in a post with headshots of Chris Pratt, Pine, Hemsworth and Evans.

The post has since gone viral, racking up over 6,600 comments and 13,000 retweets.

Respondents overwhelmingly voted out “Parks and Recreation” actor Pratt, citing him reportedly being a Trump supporter and — in a claim Pratt, 41, has denied — last year supporting a church which maintains anti-LGBTQ beliefs.

“Yeah he can go,” responded one non-fan of the proud Christian and Bible-based dieter.

Others argued that all the Chrises look the same to them. “How to choose?” the competition critic tweeted alongside four identical Friendly’s vanilla-flavored ice-cream tubs.

“They’re all the same person!” more directly wrote another.

Pratt found himself in hot water this month after encouraging fans to vote not in the upcoming presidential election but for his movie in this year’s People’s Choice Awards. “With all that’s going on in the world it is more important than ever that you vote,” he wrote in the Oct. 2 Instagram post. “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. #onward.”

“File Chris Pratt’s latest Instagram post as ‘Things You Can’t Believe Are Real, But Absolutely Are,’ ” wrote one critic shocked by the perceived insensitivity of the post.

Berg followed the Chris-off post with another Chris-based competition, now featuring Irish comedian Chris O’Dowd in place of Pratt.

“I feel like this is harder,” Berg captioned the second Chris-off. Following the initial viral post, Berg has posted a number of other versions of the same-name celebrity Twitter battle format, including an Amy-off and a Tom-off, although neither have achieved nearly the same level of success.
