Snowflakes Bully Chris Pratt and Label Him As “White Supremacist” Over His T-Shirt
Liberals are taking shots at Chris Pratt once again.
This time they’re upset about his t-shirt calling it racist and labeling him as a “white supremacist”.
Fox News reported,
Yahoo is facing heavy criticism for an article calling Chris Pratt a “white supremacist” because he wore a T-shirt with the Gadsden flag.
Pratt, best known for his starring roles in “Guardians of the Galaxy” and the “Jurassic World” franchises, was seen wearing a T-shirt featuring the American flag with a coiled rattlesnake in front of it with the text, “Don’t tread on me.”
Here is a portion of what Yahoo wrote about the Gadsden flag,
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.
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.”
Some snowflakes are throwing a fit about the shirt and sharing their precious emotions on Twitter:
I like him, but all these small things about his politics makes me wonder when he’ll say something transphobic, tank his career, and do the full heel-turn into a Fox commentator https://t.co/Emfzd02GmK

How dare he wear a shirt of an American flag with a snake on it…which isn’t racist at all.
The Gadsden flag was first created during the height of the Revolutionary War during the late 1770s. South Carolina native Christopher Gadsden, who served as a brigadier general in the Continental Army, is credited for the flag’s creation. Originally the flag was yellow featuring a rattlesnake with 13 rattles, which represented the 13 colonies, and was stamped with the standout phrase, “DON’T TREAD ON ME.” Gadsen initially gifted the flag to Navy Commander-in-Chief Eske Hopkins, who sailed the flag on his ship in his first mission.

Since the criticism, many have come out to his defense.
Chris Pratt isn't wearing a white supremacist shirt. That symbol has been used since the revolution. The snake had 13 parts and together they were strong, but apart they were worthless. It was to gather support for independence from Britain, not white supremacy#ChrisPratt
