The messages in question seemed to date back to the period between 2012 and 2013, and some of them contained unpleasant references to people of color and Muslims, such as “Calling another person a nigger is fun” or “Muslims scare me so much“.
In short, tweets that have provoked the indignation of many people and about which Pratt’s spokesperson said: “Chris has never tweeted the offensive stuff circulating on the web today. What emerges is not only totally false but also defamatory“A senior Twitter executive also said that”firmly believe that these tweets are fake“.

The Iron Man interpreter, for example, wrote on Instagram: “What a world. The “sinless” throw stones at my brother, Chris Pratt, who lives by sound principles and has never shown anything but positivity and gratitude. If you’re having trouble with Chris, I have a new idea. Delete your social media accounts, sit with your flaws, work on them, then celebrate your humanity“.
