Some on Twitter piled on, turning the conversation to Pratt’s alleged association with a church that has supported gay conversion therapy.
“For something that someone else told you about him that’s not true?,” Gunn tweeted. “Chris Pratt would never be replaced as Star-Lord but, if he ever was, we would all be going with him.”
Gunn reiterated his support for Pratt in another response.
“It has recently been suggested that I belong to a church which ‘hates a certain group of people’ and is ‘infamously anti –LGBTQ,'” Pratt posted on social media. “Nothing could be further from the truth. I go to a church that opens their doors to absolutely everyone.”
Gunn was later reinstated.
