Chris Pratt Got That People’s Choice Award Twitter Was So Pissed He Campaigned For

Guys, did you know there was a presidential election in the US earlier this month? You might have missed it because it’s not like it was the only thing anyone ever talked about on social media for the last two years. Not only was it the only thing some people were willing to talk about, they actually got mad when people attempted to talk about something else.

For example, Chris Pratt wanted people to vote for Onward in the People’s Choice Awards because he has pride in what he does as an actor. So when the nomination was announced, he made a little joke about it being important to vote for Onward in the People’s Choice Awards, the way you people won’t shut up about how important it is to vote for whatever candidate you like better than the other guy even though they were both just legitimately terrible.

Cute, right? Well, not according to some of the internet’s most joyless people.

But, much to the dismay of people telling Chris Pratt that “there are more important things” and “now is not the time,” Onward won last night’s People’s Choice Award for Best Family Movie.

This year’s election had a record turnout, with about 2/3s of eligible voters casting a ballot, a higher percentage than any previous election since 1900. But what many people fail to realize is the vast majority of those people aren’t particularly invested in politics. Donald Trump has been a very polarizing President and that has lead people on both sides of the aisle to come out and vote, but almost everyone considers a lot of things more important than who the president is.

That’s why things like some big internet backlash against Chris Pratt because he’s religious don’t have any bearing on the success of his film career or on votes for things like this. Chris Pratt is a really charming, talented actor and people respond to that and most of them don’t feel the need to know much of anything about him beyond that, which is probably better.

You know, unless it’s really salacious. In that case, we’ll tell you about it.
