In recent years, several film franchises have done huge business at the box office including Star WarsFast and Furious, and the Jurassic World films among others. Despite that, there is no debate that the Marvel Cinematic Universe has reigned supreme to such a degree that it stands head and shoulders above all of its competition.

Made up of a slew of hugely popular films, virtually every actor that has headlined an MCU movie has become hugely popular with the masses. Unfortunately, every rule has its exceptions and over the last few years, there have been two Marvel Cinematic Universe stars that have received a lot of negative attention from moviegoers.

As everyone that spends a lot of time on social media will likely know, whenever Chris Pratt or Brie Larson are brought up online there are a lot of people that respond with anger. While the two actors inspire similar emotions among a lot of people online, the reasons for the backlash against them are completely different.

Mostly Beloved

Years before Chris Pratt and Brie Larson became controversial figures, the two actors were largely beloved. Among the best actors of her generation, ever since Brie Larson rose to prominence she has been giving one stellar performance after another. First able to turn heads when she landed a role in the underseen show United States of Tara, Larson was wonderful as a young woman dealing with a mother who has multiple personalities. From there, Larson went on to earn the respect of moviegoers and her peers due to her work in films like Short Term 12The Spectacular NowTrainwreck, and Room among others.

When it comes to Chris Pratt, he has never been the kind of actor that people associate with winning awards. Instead, throughout Pratt’s career, he came across as a lovable and highly entertaining performer. After landing recurring roles in shows like The O.C. and Everwood, Pratt landed the role that would change everything for him when he became one of the stars of Parks and Recreation. Often considered to be among that show’s MVPs, which is really saying something, Pratt’s popularity only grew when he began starring in the MCU and Jurassic World movies. Additionally, during Chris Pratt and Anna Farris’ many years together, many observers thought they were a perfect couple.

Brie’s Backlash

When critics got to see 2018’s A Wrinkle in Time, the majority of them weren’t overly impressed. Aware of that fact, when Brie Larson spoke at a 2018 Women in Film event she said; “I don’t need a 40-year-old white dude to tell me what didn’t work about A Wrinkle in Time”. Continuing, Larson explained why she thought different voices should be heard when it comes to that film and movies like it. “It wasn’t made for him! I want to know what it meant to women of color, biracial women, to teen women of color.”

In an attempt to make the intent of her words clear, at that same even Larson went on to say; “Am I saying I hate white dudes? No, I am not.”Despite that unambiguous statement, some observers misconstrued her speech to be about a desire to see white male reviewers fired. Unsurprisingly, the people that interpreted her words that way got angry and that began the backlash against her.

From there, things only got worse for Brie Larson when she began taking part in interviews to promote the MCU movies she has starred in. With many people online already mad at Larson, it wasn’t overly surprising that the consensus among many MCU fans was that she came off as rude during interviews with her co-stars. While there certainly are some people online who remain outspoken about their dislike for Larson, the backlash against her has largely diminished as of late.

Pratt Pisses People Off

After years as a largely beloved figure in Hollywood, the perception of Chris Pratt took a major hit after Ellen Page called him out. Responding to a Hollywood Reporter about Pratt on social media, Page tweeted that the church Pratt belongs to is “infamously anti LGTBQ”. When it comes to the Zoe Church that Pratt attends, it is was founded by Chad Veach, a man that once executive produced a film about people who “have struggled with ‘sexual brokenness'”.

In response to Page’s take on his church, Pratt posted an Instagram story defending it. “It has recently been suggested that I belong to a church which ‘hates a certain group of people’ and is ‘infamously anti-LGBTQ,'” “Nothing could be further from the truth. I go to church that opens their doors to absolutely everyone.”

Aside from the controversy around Chris Pratt’s church, many people have taken exception to the actor’s perceived political leanings. For example, in 2019 many people got upset when a photo of Pratt wearing a Don’t Tread on Me T-Shirt, a phrase with origins that date back to the revolutionary war, surfaced online. On top of that, many MCU fans have come to believe that Pratt is a Trump supporter and because people are so upset about politics these days, that inspired a whole new round of anger. In fact, in October 2020 Chris Pratt trended on Twitter because so many people wanted him to leave the public eye permanently.
